When we're on the road in NZ and just making an overnight stop, we usually opt for a motel in a convenient location, taking pot luck as we arrive in a town. We've always been quite happy with what we've found - clean, comfortable acommodation with good facilities at a reasonable price - nothing particularly marvellous but perfectly satisfactory.
So, 295 on Tay in Invercargill was set to be just another of these bookings, but ...
it was truly excellent. They were quite full and all that was available was a 2 bedroom unit which they gave to us at a lower rate as we were just a couple. Talk about a honme from home - 2 spacious bedrooms, a comfortable living/dining area with a flat screen television, DVD player and sound system, another flat screen in the bedroom, spa bath, a fully fitted kitchen and, tucked away behind folding doors a complete laundry (washing machine, tumble dryer, trough, ironing board, the lot).
It's all very new, spotlessly clean and well-cared for, with (as is always the way in New Zealand - there's definitely something in the water there) very friendly proprieters. We usually don't bother booking for nights like this, but I know that if we return to Invercargill we'll make sure we've booked ahead to ensure a room at 295 on Tay.
Address: 295 Tay Street, Invercargill
Comparison: about average
