We stayed at The Sails before and after walking the Heaphy track. It's modern, super clean and has a kitchen which is great for self catering. Cecilia and Mark are charming and well organised hosts. A few minutes walk to town, Nelson's lovely riverside walk and a supermarket. Highly recommended.

Hotel is a quick walk to town with shops and restaurants. The room was beautiful and had everything you could need, fully equipped kitchen, lovely clean bathroom, bed was very comfortable. Afew little luxuries like robes, herbal loose leaf tea etc were a nice touch. Would highly recommend.

Being just off the main highway thought noise from traffic would be a problem but wasn't. Room was immaculate with good provisions if you needed them. Really good wifi and tv! Bathroom large with massive shower. Parking was ok. Enjoyed breakfast on our balcony in the sun. Could be tricky if it rains. Loads of brochures and leaflets in the laundry room.

This is one of the nicest places I have stayed in while in NZ! I am a bit picky when it comes to hotels but this place is great! Beautiful and clean room with full sky TV. The bed is the most comfortable bed I've slept in while traveling by far! Overall it was a great stay!
