Over the last month we have had to travel to Nelson to be with our sick sister, & at short notice Dave & Desma found us rooms on two occasions accommodating our family and looking after us, dropping us into town and being great hosts. Rooms are clean tidy and extremely comfortable. Restaurant is a great asset to the place, we dined there and great food to top off a great stay/place all round.

We recently traveled to Nelson for a family funeral and I booked several rooms with different arrival and departure times. The staff were absolutely fantastic and very helpful even offering to help with transport to the funeral if required and also offered use of the marquee if we wanted additional space.
The rooms were great and I recommend including the two bedroom family unit if booking several rooms as a great place to congregate. The communal kitchen was a great idea and very well stocked.
As a family we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Thanks for making a difficult time easier.

As an introduction to the Nelson and Tasman region, I could not have come across a better place. Dave and Desma were the truly perfect hosts, accommodating my every request. Friendly and generous, they both provided me with a wonderful introduction as I transitioned from the North to South Island.

By no means is this only to single them out, the entire crew probably the same feeling - the feeling of a good culture also in people's workplace.

Extremely spacious rooms, more bed options that people to sleep in them and I really enjoyed the powerful showers and roomy bathrooms.

Simply, loved it!

Hint: If you don't have to stay in Nelson, get out to this place! Not a 5-star hotel as it is a motel/motor lodge but the service was better than what I have experienced in a number of other so-called 5-star hotels both here and overseas.

We stayed two nights and loved it. The staff are so friendly and helpful.
Our room was perfectly clean and tidy, was warm, and had such a lovely and comfortable bed. Would definitely be back again. Highly recommend!

We recently had a family funeral to attend in Nelson & several of our family stayed at the Saxton Motor Lodge for around a week. Our host were thoughtful, kind & caring.
They really went that extra mile for us all. The staff were all very friendly, our rooms were spotless, the beds were lovely & comfotable & we loved their great little cafe & yummy food.

Room tip: All rooms we found very comfortable, the windows were double glazed & had blackout curtains.
