Best choice.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Apr 2024
We stayed for just two nights, and it was an excellent choice. Check in was very straight forward, the owners were very helpful and informative, highlighting some of the best places to visit during our short stay. They were obviously very proud of their bit of the world.
We had been upgraded to a King apartment, which was very spacious, quiet and clean. A good king sized bed, very comfortable. The carpets throughout must have been quite new, because you sank in it as you walked across it! The kitchenette was very well stocked with crockery and cutlery, but we preferred to eat out, after all, just a ten minute walk got you into town, with plenty of cafe's and restaurants.
All in all, an excellent place to stay, Thank you Dean and Tomoko for making our stay so pleasant.

The motor lodge was sparkling clean. The bed was very comfy and the room was a good size. It was very well situated and just a short walk to town centre and great restaurants. The amenities were great and the owner Dean could not have been friendlier or more helpful.

Room tip: If you are looking for a great stay in Nelson this is it.

Kia ora, Robin. Thank you for your stunning review and comments. I know our housekeeping fairies will be grateful for your comments too! Chelsea Park is a 10 - 12-minute walk to the city centre, great for the walk home after a delicious dinner and stuff... Thank you again, Robin we appreciate it. Dean and Tomoko.

We had the warmest welcome from the hosts who went out of their way to help with any queries. Beautifully appointed rooms, spacious and so clean. The bed was very comfortable, bathroom lovely, ours had a spa bath. The kitchen area was well equipped and perfect for self catering. Also a pretty little courtyard for sitting outside. We were also able to use the washing machine and dryer which was perfect timing for us. Highly recommend this place and would definitely return.

Kia ora Claire and family, thank you for staying with us and for your lovely comments and review. Our beds are being renewed which is good timing and it is handy to have a kitchen to cook in instead of always going out for dinner and stuff. Good shower pressure and hot tubs help too! Thanks again and please come back sometime. Dean and Tomoko.

Really enjoyed the stay. We booked 2 bedroom unit. It was spacious, very clean, and very quiet being at the far end from the street. The beds were very comfortable. The hosts were super welcoming and very helpful. The motel is very close to the centre of the town, Would definitely stay there again.

Dean was very kind and did everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room is big and equipped with everything you need for a family stay with children. It was a great place to unwind after the Abel Tasman track. We highly recommend this place.
