We stayed at The Sails Nelson either side of our 5 day Abel Tasman Walk. The hosts were so lovely and friendly. Always willing to help, and easy to approach. The accommodation itself was so clean and wonderfully presented. The special teas and coffee were a welcome touch.
We will definitely be back in the future. You won't regret booking here!

Love staying here in Nelson - the hosts are always accommodating and the venue is spotlessly clean always. Beautiful decor, good shower, all the amenities one could want, even pod coffee. Able to walk to town for shopping/dining etc. Top knotch.

The Sails is a truly magnificent place to stay at. You are provided with three excellent loose leaf tea and top quality plunger coffee. Attention to detail is what sets it apart from other facilities, like top quality finishes throughout, personalised service, D TV, Netflix, etc, cordless charger for mobiles, great kitchenette, spacious bedroom and elegant bathroom. Can recommend with confidence to the discerning traveller.

We have stayed here many times and it is our preferred motel in Nelson. Great hosts, very comfortable bed. Always clean and tidy, and smells really nice. Great large screen smart TV. Well stocked snack and mini-bar. Fresh milk and good coffee! Thoroughly recommend.
