Hotel was exceptional, really comfy beds with all the amenities. Great service at reception. Lovely morning dip in the pool and the thing to top it all off was the great customer service from Anuris this morning for breakfast (best laugh in the world).

Great pre Xmas stay. Wonderful views from the room. Good for our family of five with room in close proximity. Could walk to town centre, markets and local restaurants. Good sized rooms. Great to have a pool. Nice lobby and friendly helpful staff.

Best place we have stayed at, great location with only minutes away from the Shopping Centres. Excellent customer service from Kayla at Reception who made our stay just so amazing and giving us a "Room with a View", Level 8, Room 814. So clean and you have all the comforts of home and entertainment that you can see from your room. Great Location with small shops opposite eg: Salon, Wellbeing, Barbers, Historic street homes, gardens, swimming pool, laundry facilities, dining and cafe facilities, Japanese Retaurant on the premises. Even after the Fire Alarm went on at 4 am on 2/1/20, they offered a free full breakfast for us, how excellent is that. Thank you Rutherford Hotel and Kayla for making this a most memorable trip that my husband and I have ever had and being our first visit to Nelson, would definately go back.

Stayed here on the 12th floor for 2 nights late Autumn , and dined at the Japanese Restaurant, which was stylish. Room was lovely, great view, bath, everything worked, good TV with channels, lacking only the TAB channels. Gym was excellent. Overall a polished stay, the hotel is dated in age, and some would see as old fashioned, but it has a quiet style about it, everything seems to work, just needs that spa pool to add to the services available

Great hotel a few hundred feet from the main shopping area. Spacious rooms very high standard of cleanliness and decor. Really helpful front desk staff. Just a shame the pool was closed as it was end of season.
