“Amazing views – best place to stay in Nelson!”

What a great place to stay – we were absolutely thrilled! My wife and I spent a week here while holidaying in Nelson and loved every minute of it. The apartment is first class and the views are amazing – we will definitely be back!

Located in the Port Hills, the apartment affords spectacular views over Tasman Bay and the ranges from its expansive deck. The sunsets were unforgettable! It is only about a 5min drive into the Nelson CBD and about 3min drive to Tahuna Beach – great location. Reasonably priced restaurants are either in the CBD or south along the main road about 5min to Tahunanui.

The apartment is very roomy and comfortable, 1 bed, 1 bath and a large lounge with views over the bay and outdoor flow onto the private deck. The small kitchen is functional and equipped with pretty much everything you might need, except an oven. Facilities include TV, DVD, stereo, Apple Movies (library of 80 titles), espresso maker, toaster, hot plate, fridge, and BBQ. We were provided with complimentary bread, cereal, biscuits, tea/coffee, fruit, drinks, etc. which was a really nice and unexpected bonus. Also there was complimentary Wifi – another nice feature of the apartment. The queen size bed was really comfortable and we woke up every day to beautiful views over the bay. The big deck was one of the nicest features and we spent many afternoons enjoying the last rays of the setting sun over Tasman Bay. The heat pump kept the place sufficiently warm, even during the near freezing nights.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Arrow Rock and highly recommend it to anyone spending time in Nelson. At NZ$129 per night, we felt that it was excellent value, especially when compared to other motels in the city. You won’t be disappointed! We will definitely stay here again.

Simply the best accommodation in Nelson - outstanding views, comfortable, relaxing and a great place to come home to at the end of the day. Wish we could have stayed longer. HIGHLY recommended.

“Absolutely fantastic - has got to be the best place to stay in Nelson”

Mary was there to greet us on our arrival and explained how everything worked. As we were staying for 8 nights she offered to change bedding and towels half way through. It was spotlessly clean and there were lots of special touches including fresh flowers, fruit, milk, bread and other breakfast provisions. Excellent entertainment facilities included a large flatscreen TV, DVD player and Apple TV with a good choice of up to date films. The utility room and walk-in wardrobe were also an added bonus together with the large bathroom and bathrobes. But best of all was the fantastic uninterrupted sea view from the large well-furnished balcony. It was also very convenient to walk to the harbour from where the boats left for Abel Tasman and also the excellent Haven fish and chip shop. The Boatshed cafe and restaurant was very close by where we enjoyed morning coffees and a lovely evening meal. Mary and Peter provide everything that a guest could possibly want and our stay here was one of the absolute highlights of our 4-week trip to NZ so we were really sad to leave.

What a great apartment. Super clean, spacious, great amenities, beautiful view and quiet. After roughing it for a week in Hokitika, Marahau and Abel Tasman, it was a treat being in the Nelson Apartment. The bed was comfortable and the linens high quality. We enjoyed sipping wine and watching the sunset from the lovely balcony. At night, we enjoyed a few movies from a large selection of movies. I highly recommend this apartment, it is an exception value considering the price and the amenities. The only difficulty was finding the right driveway to pull into--it took us a few tries to get it right but that is just a function of the hill upon which the homes are perched.

Definitely 5 stars! What's not to like? Luxurious accommodations with fantastic views, comfortable bed, well-supplied, lovely garden, friendly hosts. Good in any weather. Unless you're in a wheelchair or severely incapacitated, the couple of dozen steps up & down to the unit are gradual and not difficult. (I have arthritis & use a cane) A car is a must since it's halfway up a steep hill -- parking spot included. It may not be a "full kitchen" but it's perfectly adequate. We loved every minute, and will definitely be back, if at all possible.

Liked best: The view is incomparable!
Liked least: I have arthritis so found the climb more than I would usually do, but it wasn't all that difficult -- steps have short risers and are gradual.
