Comfortable and quiet room but getting a bit aged. Kelvinator fridge very noisy and had to turn it off in the night as it was cycling a lot and waking me up. Bed moderately comfortable. Host very friendly and helpful. Had all facilities in working condition. Good price value point.

NEVER STAY HERE. The owners are terrible people, they abuse their customers and make fun of them behind their BACKS! I Left my phone recording In the apartment and went out, came back and she had gone inside the room my husband, 3 year old and 1 year old where staying had called us pigs, disgusting and was constantly swearing and her husband had made comments about my husband and I as parents all over my children dropping some food on the ground and walking around outside. tried talking to the owner of motel about their comments and they went absolutely mental. Spend your money else were! This place is terrible. Not kid friendly, AWFUL people, out dated motel.

Booked this accommodation by telephone. Booking procedure was very simple especially due to the personality of Robyn, an owner. I had recently had had a new hip replacement and Robyn promptly booked us in to a very appropriate unit which was greatly appreciated by my wife and myself. Made life much easier! The tariff was about what we had expected and had budgeted for. Unit was extremely clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. In fact for the first time in years, I slept at least 9 hours for each of the nights we were there. Keith, the other owner, also went out of his way to ensure our stay was a great success. Nothing was a bother to these two lovely, warm and friendly people. Cannot praise these people and their motels high enough. We had booked in for 3 nights and stayed for 4 plus we will be booking back in this time next year too.

Easy pleasant check in. Good sized unit with quite modern furnishings. Very tidy and clean bathroom and clean shower. Good number of TV channels. Useful kitchen utensils, microwave and so on. Handy location to the airport but a little bit out from the CBD of Nelson. Our rear unit had little traffic noise. Good lighting was a plus. However the one thing that really grated with us was the fact that or our second day more milk for coffee was not complimentary. Strange really as the used coffee was replaced but not the milk. I was told at the office we would have to pay for it. When one considers the savings on linen and towel replacement/laundry cost when guests stay more than one night the savings by not providing a few sachets of long life milk are tiny. I have never been able to understand this parsimonious approach of a few motel owners. It has been years since I last experienced it. Maybe some readers might consider me to be nit picking but that approach really irritates me. I expect it will be some time before we experience it again.

Booked 2 studios for 3 nights to complete work locally. Was told it was expensive due to town being busy with a concert. Accepted this however not at all happy to be asked after we had paid, to leave an hour earlier at 9am, so they could start cleaning. Asked for extra milk on the 2nd day, but was told what was in the room when you arrived, was all you got. Considering we were paying $300.00 per room per night, we do not feel the service we received was acceptable. They were nice rooms, but we will not be returning due to the poor service.
