Good Value

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Mar 2017via mobile
We stayed one night here on our motorcycle tour of the South island. The apartment was very clean and well maintained, bed was large and comfortable and we were able to park right outside. Clever lockbox system meant checking in and out was very easy. Good location- we walked into town. Overal good value for money.

Stayed here for an impromptu visit to Nelson. Received a text a couple of hours after booking to confirm that they had a room ready.
Check and out was done through key holders on the door as there was no one at reception (They did have a phone if you needed to contact them). The room was nice and clean and fairly large. Nice place to stay but about 15 minute walk from the city center.

As the motel had recently changed hands I rang to book accommodation as we have been caught out with places closing down. We were booked into a studio apartment for 2 nights. A few days before our arrival we received a text advising us about the keybox and the number for it. We hadn't realised that the new owners did not live on site, and we saw no staff during our stay. To contact them we had to phone them - I couldn't remember if I had already paid for the apartment, which I has to when I booked.
The apartment was quite small with bed, 2 easy chairs, and small kitchenette with breakfast bar in one room, and a bathroom. There was limited space to put bags and suitcases. OK for 2 nights only. In the kitchen there was exactly 2 of everything, so stiff bikkies if you wanted or needed 3 teaspoons or 3 glasses.
The compendium said the apartment would be serviced each day, but when we returned to it after a full day out, with a couple of friends who we had promised a cup of tea to, we found that it hadn't been serviced and the kitchen supplies hadn't been replenished. So we couldn't give our friends a cup of tea, as we hardly had enough for our breakfast the next morning, and could only offer a glass of water. A bit embarrassing.
The bed was comfortable and the room quite quiet considering the proximity to a main road, but light shone in the window above the door which I found disturbing. It is convenient to the centre of Nelson and was easy to find despite roadworks.
Not big car parking space, and quite tight to drive out.

We stayed for three nights on a side trip from Wellington and we were very impressed by the cleanliness of the accommodation, and the fact that the TV worked properly. Staff were very friendly and we had everything we needed and more. It's a pity this motel will be closing soon.

My family stayed here two nights. It was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a van and it was a bit tight parking by our room. It was in a good location not too far a drive to town. We ate at the next door hotel restaurant which was very good. There was a rugby match in town and it was very busy the first day we were there.

Reviewed 17 February 2016

Three friends shared a two bedroom, one bath unit with kitchen for one night. The suite was very large, almost too big for what we needed. It would be great for longer visits as cooking would be very easy in the unit. The room was clean well-appointed, and staff helpful and friendly. Wifi was free but limited (as seems to be typical of NZ hotels). I would definitely recommend.
