'Great location in Invercargill, easy to find because of close proximity to the Tower. Manager was very helpful and friendly. Excellent starting point if you are heading to Stewart Island, a short half hour to get to the ferry. Unit was very clean, beds were comfortable, well equipped kitchenette and bathroom.'
