A traditional motel, bringing back memories of childhood holiday trips. The key to a great motel is a great operator, and the friendly personal service of the hosts is really appreciated. Clean and tidy with a nice balcony and warmed by the setting sun. Close walking distance to Tahunanui Beach and park. The busy road didn't bother us.

We spent New Year’s Eve here and had the best experience. Service was impeccable Adela followed up a list property item and was all around brilliant. Rooms beautifully appointed and so very clean. Quite a magical place. Highly recommended.

I agree with other reviews the hosts are very friendly and happy to just have a chat or go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Room was clean and serviced well. Good location and easy to find. It is on a busy road but with double glazing that was not an issue. We enjoyed a 3 night stay and would stay again. I recommend you consider this facility for a comfortable break in Nelson.

Firstly I’ll just say that the customer service here was fantastic. I had unit 2 and was walked over to it and shown everything, very friendly and accommodating. Had everything I needed including a fantastic shower, free wifi and the room was clean and quiet. My only two criticisms were the window by the door/bed and the TV. Channels 1 and 2 have a little glitch on them so the picture very quickly cuts out every now and then, nothing major but a little annoyingly if you’re watching something for a while. The window was a problem for me; the blinds don’t completely block out all of the light so the light that gets through shines directly onto the pillows. I found it hard to get to sleep and I wasn’t able to turn the outside light off which would have helped (went off eventually). Small issues that can be easily fixed - thanks for a nice stay
