Excellent motel in the heart of Richmond, Nelson. I stayed in a tidy studio unit. Close to a main road but extremely sound proofed. Friendly hosts also! Very tidy and clean. First time I have been here. Will stay again!

Hi From the time I called from Auckland to book a motel to attend a family bereavement I was super impressed with the thoughtful, respectful customer service. I spoke at that time to Lesley the owner. We duly arrived Wednesday and were greeted with the same excellent customer service at check in .... especially recalling while we were in Nelson and offering condolences. The rooms were very clean and tidy, amenities perfect. A very professionally operated motel. I say 5 Stars.

We are seasoned travellers and stayed at hundreds of hotels/motels in New Zealand. The Gladstone was our first and only bad experience: we met unhelpful and rude managers who unfortunately do not like their customers and their profession.

This Customer has written the last 3 reviews just with different names. Unfortunately he booked the wrong room type that he needed. We were full at the time so I could not move them. I called 4 other motels to see if they could accommodate him but they were full as well. He was very rude and threatening to me. As we have many Great reviews I will leave it up to other Guests to make up their own mind. Some people you just can not help. No matter how hard you try.

The motel is a budget accommodation, definitely not a 4-star motel as the managers claim and charge for. Shabby furniture, no air conditioning, no ventilation, noisy at night. Do not be fooled by nice pictures, glamorous reviews and high prices.

This wpuld honestly have to be the cleanest motel I have EVER stayed in. There were roadworks going on and the host knocked on my door to advise me that they were happening overnight and gave me some ear plugs. Within walking distance of the Richmond Mall and shops. Great service. Will definitely stay again next time I am in Nelson.
