This hotel is well run and a good value. Our room was very clean and well maintained, even though the neighborhood is a little run down. There are several decent restaurants within walking distance. A good value.

Ok place to stay close to the airport, but quite a lot of noise from the traffic on the main road. Rooms are nice and clean. We had an appartment with 2 bedrooms, and it was nice and spacious. Good beds.

Thank you for your review. We are happy that you liked our room. Our window glass are special type and our curtains are heavy with 3 layers. All these are to minimize the traffic noise. I am sorry you still find the noise control was still not up to your like. It was very nice to meet you.

The rooms were spotlessly clean. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable, with plenty of room for all. We had a quiet restful sleep. Really close to plenty of food outlets with a handy 24 dairy across the road.

Went to check in and was greeted with a warm welcome. Room very clean with all amenities. So pleased to have a shower that does not have a shower curtain. Very comfortable bed. Décor is a little dated. Environmentally friendly, quiet location. Definitely recommend.

Thank you for your positive review. We had mounted the TV onto the wall after you left us. It certainly changed the look and the space of the room. Hopefully, you will like our room even more next time.

Amazing, friendly and exceptionally accommodating owners. Our room was spotlessly clean and beds super comfortable. Handy location to town, airport and beach. Definitely recommend staying here when you're in Nelson!
