Dated but comfortable
My stay was fine. This place is nice enough. The decor is pretty dated and I wouldn't class this as a 4 star place, but there is nothing terrible about it.

Great Location
Location, Cleanliness, Friendliness
Front receptionist when I booked in was so helpful and friendly, great first impression. The only negative was the pillow.

Two nights at The Kelvin
Very friendly staff, right in the centre of town easy to get around. Room was fine.
On a short business trip to Invercargill, the Kelvin was recommended. It was a perfectly good hotel with good service from attentive staff. Nothing outstanding, but very homely!
