We stayed here one night before our hike on the Heaphy Track and one night after the Heaphy Track. Both short stays were very pleasant. Rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. Toiletries provided, tea and coffee in room. Good WIFI. Well equipped kitchen in the 2 bedroom unit. Location was great, flat walking distance to the i-site, supermarket, restaurants and shopping in town. Ideal for our needs on this visit. Under new management, owners were very obliging and helpful.

Stayed for 7 days at this wonderful motel. The unit was great. Spotlessly clean, had everything we needed, stove, microwave and sufficient cutlery etc. Central location to city for shopping and resturants. The owners are fantastic. Made us feel very welcome and best we have ever had at a motel. Would definately go back if ever in Nelson. Highly recommended. AAA+

The convenience of being within easy walking distance of the CBD, and immediately opposite Trafalgar Park are drawcards for this motel. Rooms are well back from the street and quiet (in our experience). The rooms are definitely spacious and being able to close the bedroom off from the lounge area is helpful if one is working or watching TV while another sleeps. A bit run down and needing TLC in some aspects, but clean and tidy. Air-conditioned rooms. Pool available. Shower looked new but had low (soft) pressure only.

We were thoroughly happy with our stay. Fabulous location and immaculately clean motel rooms with everything you need in a motel. The owners are lovely and most obliging and we loved the lovely linen and cotton waffle blankets. Highly recommend staying here, we certainly would again. Thank you!!
