Lovely hotel in the heart of Nelson

Review of Tides Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Jun 2024
The hotel is on the river and it was nice having a balcony. We reserved parking (glad we did as it is limited). We stayed here three nights, and ate at the hotel a few times as it was very convenient and tasty. The chowder and shrimp and scallop appetizer were excellent. My husband enjoyed the lamb.

    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!
