Stayed in a single room here while on a working holiday. Wakatu Lodge in general was very clean and well-equipped, with a pleasant atmosphere and friendly, helpful hosts - Simon and Melissa. Self-catering kitchens were cleaned regularly, had plenty of food storage space, and had all the appliances, cookware, dinnerware and utensils you regularly need. Bathrooms were similarly always clean and showers had good water pressure and temperature. The communal areas included a lounge with a TV, selection of books and games including an air hockey table. Only 30 mins walk from Nelson town centre, and very convenient location for working at the hospital.
