Wonderful stay here with a friend, left my headphones in my room after leaving and staff were kind enough to post them to me! Very kind and great amenities! Breakfast was great, and was kindly left in our room for us.

Stayed here for one night whilst on the way to Franz Josef.
Nice clean and comfortable room with good kitchen facilities and a friendly and cheerful owner.
We found motel to be great for us as a stopover but it was quite far from attractions.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We are not sure what attractions you are referring to as Nelson is small enough to be 10 mins drive from most attractions here. We are situated a short stroll from the beach and only a few more minutes drive to the centre of the city.

The room was clean and tidy but very small and compact and overpriced against other places we stayed in NZ. The staff were friendly enough and they had good laundry facilities. Once whale watching trip done, not much else to do in the area. Watch out for the long detours!

We feel that you may have us confused us for Kaikoura??? There is so much to do in and around Nelson that you can easily fill in a week here. We offer a variety of different sized rooms so you may wish to ask about this next time.

Bruce was a great host in helping us find our way around & helping us in our journey. Rooms were nice & kept very clean. Close proximity to the airport made it perfect for our quick stop for Abel Tasman.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Our staff work extremely hard to keep the rooms up to such high standards so it is nice to know that it is noticed. Yes it is great that we are so close to the airport (and the beach!!)

We spent two nights here this week and it’s just perfect!! It’s in a great location right close to Tahunanui beach and also close to the centre of Nelson - the rooms are immaculate and have absolutely everything that you need - the host, Bruce is such a nice bloke and so helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble - he recommended that we go to the Abel Tasman National Park so we took his advice and it was absolutely stunning!! One of the best things we have done whilst we have been on NZ

This place is an ideal base if you do want to go out and explore as there is so much to do in this area - we also did wine tasting with Bay Tours Nelson and that was really good too and they will pick you up from the hotel

We would like to say a massive thank you to Bruce and his great team for a lovely stay

Thanks for taking the time to give us such a great review. We have put a lot of effort into upgrading the units so it’s always wonderful to know the extras are appreciated. We agree that we are in a super spot here for everything you may need.
