Great place to stay! Planned to stay only a couple of nights but ended up extending to 5 nights. Perfect location for the beach, and a short drive to town. Room and facilities were ideal and the staff were just fantastic!

We would not stay here again. The main drawback was poor ventilation. The bathroom had no fan and no opening window, something we have never encountered anywhere else . We were in an upstairs unit that overheated at night. If we opened the windows the room filled with smoke from smokers outside, and noise that carried on til after 2am (from either parties in another unit or people passing through the car park from the bar next door); if we kept them closed, we cooked! While the room was nicely furnished, there was a large stain on the carpet. To be fair, the staff were efficient and friendly, but that would not be enough to persuade us to return.

We arrived to find there was a challenge with our booking but the reception and management team were amazing in terms of finding a solution, providing some support and above all else going out of their way to make the experience much much less stressful than it could have been. Service goes a long way towards the overall feeling you have. Well done team

Stayed here years ago in a very small and unpleasant unit. This time was in a unit in the old Aloha Lodge, where I have stayed many times. It was nice to be here again. Unit was excellent with everything you needed. Will definitely stay here again.

Really happy with our stay here. All the staff were super friendly and helpful. Well appointed clean rooms, we had a spa bath in our room, which was great. Everything supplied in amply supply, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath, and milk in a glass bottle NOT a way too tiny plastic thimble. Ample parking. 5 min drive to Nelson city centre, and about 5 mins to Richmond too. Handy to the beach and activities, restaurants, pubs, service stations, and takeaways. We decided to stay an extra night and this was sorted quickly and with no fuss. Would recommend.
