Great customers service and room were clean and tidy 10/10. Would highly recommend the stay. As well only 5 minutes walk into Nelson CBD. It was very relaxing in the room and had a great bathroom. The best part was that they had Netflix in every room!!

A very clean, well designed apartment hotel in close proximity to Nelson CBD. Very clean. Kitchen and bathroom well designed. Only downside is the bed - soft/needs replacing?-killed my husband’s back :( Hosts were very friendly.

Sails was everything we hope for in comfort and more - classy decor, great service and place to relax while enjoying Nelson. Little touches with a variety of Tea options and the eco friendly bathing cremes, with a generous spa bath. The centre of Nelson is just a short stroll up the road to some brilliant dining locations. Simply the best.

It was a quick stopover and was an absolute delight. Great service, clean rooms with good amenities. Netflix is a plus. Motel is about 10mins walk to restaurants and plenty to choose from. Highly recommended.
