Great meal with friendly and attentive staff. It was a quiet night but for all that the service was prompt and the meals were very good with excellent presentation. The salmon fillet was very tasty - one of the better I have enjoyed.

Variety of choice on the menu was more than acceptable for breakfast and dinner. Friendly efficient staff, and a great view over the river. Would be first choice to stay and eat on our next visit to Nelson.
