When we told Kiwi friends we were going to Invercargill they asked 'What on earth for?', and they kind of had a point, because if the Bluff oysters aren't on, there's not a lot happening in town.
Nonetheless the Bavarian Motel was a pleasant surprise. The concept a bit kitsch, but thankfully wasn't carried on too far. Staff were very pleasant and efficient, parking was easy, and the room itself was huge. They must have decided we looked infirm because we got a disabled room, with the biggest bathroom we saw all trip. Lovely shower, although late one night the hot water ran out and a cool shower was a challenge.
Big separate bedroom with a 2nd TV, very comfortable bed, nice usable kitchenette and plenty of space in the living room, dining table & easy chairs.
Biggest surprise was the price, which may have reflected the lack of tourist demand. Well worth while joining the Host chain's loyalty program for excellent discounts.
Another bonus was the receptionist giving me a discount card for Buster Crabbe's Restaurant just down the road. Great place, excellent food, sadly we were 2 days early for the oysters.More
