Hosts are helpful and friendly. But, if you are requiring peace and quiet, I would not recommend this motel. Some of the units are located by a main road which is 24/7 traffic noise including vibrations of large trucks. The other units are further off the main road which do not have traffic noise But at the time of staying, other guests were loud (either music or shouting and at one point I was verbally abused for asking them to turn their music down a little), there was an onsite security guard who I was able to speak with. Service was ok and rooms were inconsistent with cleanliness and quality. As I say the hosts were friendly and helpful and it was unfortunate I experienced lack of quality time in regards to peace, quiet and safety.

Very clean and comfortable. Welcoming staff and easy parking with reasonable access to units. King sized bed was so good for a great nights sleep. Self contained kitchenette with all that you need for an overnight or extended stay.

My grown up family needed a place to bass ourselves for a long weekend in Nelson We booked 5 rooms of varying size as we ranged from singles to couples with children and every thing in between. Being picked up at the airport was a great bonus. The hosts are more than happy to perform a shuttle service. Our rooms were all large and well maintained. The Motel is a very handy location being close to food and drink outlets.I would be more than happy to return.
