Exceptional 10.0
Invercargill city center hotel
Hotel was perfect for our one night in Invercargill. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Staff was very kind and helpful. They accommodated our breakfast needs by allowing us to use menu meant for weekdays. Parking is off site about 1/2 block away so easy to get there. Parking lot was secured which we liked. Would definitely stay again.

No view as building wrapped for repairs, Room clean. Shower mixer floppy. Was supposed to be jetbath and wasn’t.

Poor 2.0
Invercargill needs a decent hotel !
This is 2 star at best - desperately in need of a full refurb, despite the new appearance of the lifts and lobby. On a cold Winters day, it's downright depressing. Room had a mustard / stale smell, bed looked and felt it was from the 1970's as did the furnishings. Didn't eat in house, so no comment on the restaurant. Front desk friendly

Fair 4.0
Have stayed at the Kelvin many times, and was expecting the same great experience i have had in the past. Every thing was fine apart from the disappointing restaurant supervisor and a young team member in #1 bar that left a bitter experience and will most likely not be back to the kelvin,

5 star comfort, 1 star shower.
It's a great hotel, but the shower pressure on the 6th floor was shocking - worst I've ever had...had much better in a fly-blown village in Sudan! Please please fix that - not acceptable, other guests moaning to me about it too. If you're booking, it's a great hotel, friendly people, central, fantastic breakfast....10/10 on everything, beds great...but that shower! No it's not a 'temporary issue', it was the same Fri-Sunday.
