Mixed Feelings

Review of Arcadia Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Mar 2024via mobile
The owners are some of the nicest people you could meet so I don’t really want to say anything negative but I feel I should mention when we were staying the road outside was closed for access from 8:45 to 1pm for an event We should have been told this at booking not when checking in
Also it is directly under the local airport Some noise but for fly late and first noise around 7am but soon passes
Rooms spotless and no apparent noise from neighbours
Despite my negative comments I would use again
Date of stay: March 2024
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Hi, George
Many thanks for staying with us, and find that I was a really nice person.
I think we do have a little misunderstanding here with the road closure due to the kid's triathlon. I mentioned if you would like to go out after 8:45 am, we do need to talk to the road controller so he can manage the road safely.
I was hoping that you would find it exciting to see so many children riding their bicycles pass our motel.
Thank you again for considered to use us again.

This was such a great little family owned motel. Spotlessly clean, laundry facilities, small pool, comfortable beds, equipped kitchen. The owner is such a wonderful host, friendly and knowledgeable. Couldn’t be happier with our stay. We would highly recommend this motel.

Room tip: Parking was in a car port right in front of our unit. Very convenient.

Very clean motels, located within easy walking distance to the beach, shops, plus many food outlets. The hosts are incredibly friendly and obliging - our team made very good use of the heated swimming pool, plus the bbq facilities. We have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed.

Room tip: No handrails on the 3 steps up to units 1,2 - elderly or less mobile people could struggle accessing their unit.

100% recommend. We stayed as a group to attend a leisure marching function in Nelson. Amazing motels, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable beds, spacious. Fantastic shower best I've personally come across. Kitchen extemely well equiped with full size oven and large fridge-freezer. Friendly owners and so obliging. Great swimming pool and BBQ area. Pool heated. Very close to eateries and the beautiful Tahunanui Beach. We didnt want to leave! 3rd time staying here and will certainly be back again.

This little motel is perfect. Exceptionally clean, comfortable beds, nice shower and everything you need in the little kitchen. The owner was a very nice man who went above and beyond with helping us out while we were there. So sad that he doesn’t have any vacancy on our return trip.

Clean and friendly service. Very accommodating when we needed a ground floor room at the last minute. Location not close to anything walkable. Bathroom had doors that didn’t close and showing the need for maintenance. It’s a nice looking place but don’t look too close.
