Disappointed after reading positive reviews with regards to cleanliness and comfort. Plunger coffee supplied but no Plunger, had to wash all crockery and utensils as food and grease on everything, no sky tv for $130. Per night. Very basic, bedding grubby marks but sheets were clean, towels ok. Check in experience the best part of the stay. Filled with mainly MSD people, but we had no issues. Sadly would not stay again and definitely would not be recommending the property

Older type pet friendly accommodation. Upstairs/downstairs situation. Urgently needs upgrading. Old, holey, smelly teatowels; spiders in drawers; fridge not working; tea/coffee not refreshed daily, no soap/shampoo provided; could hear rodents in upstairs roof area. All advised to owner. Did not enjoy my stay here and will not return. For the cost of $130 per night, very disappointed.

While the unit may have been a little dated it is very spacious and comfortable. It was exceptional clean and the owners were very friendly. Beds were comfortable and we were very happy with our accommodation. My only complaint would have been the strange small in the cupboard where the crockery was kept but I know these units are going to be updated so it was no big deal. We also had a carport for the car right at the door. Great location with easy access to town and even had a swimming pool. Would definitely stay again next time we are in Nelson.

This motel changed hands in September 2018 and is under an extensive refurbishment process by the current owners. All of my unit had been completed except for the upright stove and this was explained to be by the owner at check in. I chose this motel as I was attending a wedding at Founders Park and it was a 10 minute walk in heels to the wedding. The unit also had a pool which sadly I didn't have time to use. Also within walking distance a Sprig and Fern pub serving food and an excellent take away shop serving multiple cuisines only 4 minutes walk. The new owners have worked hard to make these motels a clean and safe option for your stay and are super friendly and accommodating. I stayed 3 nights 1-4 Feb 2019, booked direct and was very happy with my stay.

Really accommodating host, who makes every effort to help out. The motel has recently changed ownership, and is being quickly updated and renovated. They are about half way done at the moment. Rooms we stayed in are currently older but spacious, good free wifi, everything works fine. Staff were very kind and helpful, very welcoming. Recommend this motel for your Nelson adventure.
