The Hotel Nelson is a short, 15 minute walk from downtown Nelson, which is good as the hotel is located on a motel strip lacking in character. Whilst clean, the room that we occupied was small and lacking in character. Indeed, my wife described the...More

This seems more of a motel than a hotel. Clean, well appointed rooms - but busy and hard to find peace and quiet. We arrived during a music festival, and the place looked like a Fraternity House in full swing! Teens with alcohol everywhere, even...More

We stayed just one night as a last minute trip over Xmas, and were happy to find a place to stay that was really nice. The location was quite central but reasonably quiet, and the pool was a relief on a really hot day.

Felt discriminated, unsure why but probably because we are young. Expected more after paying almost $1000 for 3 nights. Was also lied to about damaging property, had to prove no property was damaged. Will not be returning.More
