Conveniently located, with free car parking. We stayed in a small apartment or studio, well equipped with a kitchen, full size bathroom, washing machine and dryer. Friendly staff and quiet room. The perfect starting point for a visit to the Abel Tasman Park.

Ideal hotel furniture seeing Nelson, outstanding restaurant and bar .

Bedroom wonderful, high quality

Poor plumbing , meant toilet seat would not stay up, as a man this is so bad - “are we meant to hold it up with one hand !!! “ .

Paper thin walls , woken up Tat 06:30 from adjoining rooms TV.

Ad said it’s a great place just needs some tweaks to be 10/10..

We are touring New Zealand with a small group. The Tides was chosen by the tour company. We had a nice stay in this hotel that has a bit of arty vibe going along with a comfortable bed and nice room. The decor is fun with a purple chair and a patterned toilet seat in most rooms. There is also mural art in the room and elsewhere on the property. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The hotel was well located allowing us to walk to dinner and the cathedral.

We had the buffet breakfast that came with our room. There were hot items as well as yogurt, fruit and cereal. We were happy!

We were visiting NZ and looking to stay overnight in Nelson. We were wanting accomodation that had a bar and restaurant as part of the offering, was close to the CBD and was modernish. We didn't really want to stay at one of the ubiquitous motels in the area. We found the tides very comfortable. That king bed was so good. The restaurant / bar had a good selection of great food and a well stocked bar. The best thing was the fantastic service provided at both breakfast and lunch. Cheeky, fun and efficient. Would definitely stay at the Tides again.

Room tip: Plenty of on site parking
