We booked this hotel so we could come to Nelson to see my neice and her fiance. This morning's breakfast and tonight's dinner was excellent!! The Staff are so warm and friendly, the room is very clean and comfortable, and the overall impression is that they care.

Hotel's Favourite
Awesome three-night stay. The room was able to be cleaned everyday, and individual requests were provided for (like extra towels). The first night was incredibly hot so we had to get up in the middle of the night to turn on the air con. The location of this hotel is absolutely awesome, being only a minute walk to central town. That was convenient as we were able to go to and from our hotel with ease. Nice stay, 10/10!

Stayed for a long weekend with my other half. Very welcoming, lots of local recommendations from the front desk on check in. Rooms very modern and comfortable, worked on the laptop using wifi with ease. Spa bath in the room was a nice touch. Good price point compared to other local accomodation.

Absolutely fantastic setting, views of the river and felt like we were out of the bustle but in fact we’re right in town. We had the roast vegetable salad and calamari which were well priced and delish and the perfect sizes, service was awesome we were well looked after and we aren’t even staying here.
