This is a perfect place to stay for any trip to Nelson. We stayed pre and post our Abel Tasman trip. It's within a few blocks walking distance to all the restaurants, shops, and Saturday Nelson Market. It's also easy access to major roads for any day trips in the area (with parking off-street, right in front of the rooms). The hosts are incredibly warm and welcoming. On arrival, they offered lots of great tips on things to do in the area and restaurants to try. Both rooms we stayed in were beautifully outfitted with a nice long desk for any computer needs, soft chairs and/or couches to lounge in, a nicely appointed kitchenette, and (most importantly) an incredibly comfortable bed and pillows (very welcome post 5 days in Abel Tasman!). Both rooms had spa baths, a lighted

Our party of three couples stayed in the three bedroom apartment for two nights before doing our Abel Tasman walk/kayak trip. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. Our room was ready for us even though we arrived a bit early and everyone was very friendly. Location was great - we walked to the waterfront, into town to the restaurants & to the Middle of NZ. Also close to New World and other shops. Definitely recommend staying here.

Fabulous motel in a great location, close to all amenities. Our room was spotlessly clean with lovely furnishings and plenty of storage. Bathroom was clean and modern with a spa bath, a definite luxury when travelling! Good kitchen area with everything you need. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Thanks for putting in such a great review. Our Motel was a little run down when we took it over, so some TLC was needed. So happy you could enjoy your stay with us, and have some fun in Sunny Nelson. Thanks again for taking the time out to write one.
