Thank you so much for making our hockey team feel so welcome when we were staying there a few weeks ago during secondary school tournament week. Through the booking process, during our stay and on departure your team made us feel welcome and we all enjoyed our "home away from home". Being so close to the Saxton sports complex and clearly highly experienced in hosting teams, this is the no-brainer place to stay for anyone competing or managing a team.

This lodge is more a motel, but very comfortable. It's location is great, near enough to Nelson but also for those travelling further, it's an easy drive out.

The rooms are huge, lots of room. Yes, Saxton Lodge is quite dated but honestly, it's very clean and you're given plenty of extras to make it comfortable.

It's also quiet. We came back late one evening and only the sound of nature greeted us on our return. Overall, very happy with what we paid for.

Our room was large, definitely outdated but clean. There was sufficient storage for a 1 or 2 night stay. There was a tea kettle, toaster and refrigerator in the room. The refrigerator was not stocked so you can place your own food and/or drinks. The bed and air conditioning were okay. The shower pressure was good, however there was no shampoo or conditioner in the room. They have a self-serve laundry with 2 washers/dryers. Wash powder is available for a fee. There is no lift so make sure you ask for a first floor room. We were on the first floor facing the road and heard some road noise especially when the trucks went by.
