Nicely located on the edge of town, this suited our needs for a one night stay.
Owner was polite and welcoming. The room was clean and tidy. Bed was comfy, small kitchenette with good facilities.
Only a small comment, we could have done with a tea towel, which of course we could have also of asked for, but was not in the room.
Would use again, if ever in the area in the future.

Had 1 nights accommodation here when i,n Nelson for business. Very nice and spacious apartment, would be great if you were here for more than 1 night, especially with supermarket just over the road.
From my perspective it was at the opposite end of the town from where my work was based - no issue at all the it was an enjoyable walk in good weather, but could easily have been awful, after all it is nearly June. Most of the restaurants, bars and cafes were located down the other end as well.
No doubt Nelson is a safe little place, but not so keen wandering around at nigh in a strange place, so from my perspective the location wasn't the best. Would be fine if you had a car of course.
Regardless, was well modernised, clean and comfortable.

This, I think, is in a very good spot, you could walk to town and it has a supermarket just across the street. It was very clean and well equipped. There is a launderette on site. The cost of the launderette does include the soap powder. The pool is small and at the edge of the car park opposite the office, but is good if you just want to cool off. The motel is at in intersection but we didn't experience too much road noise. Nelson is a lovely town, with a theatre and great market every Saturday.

My husband and I came to Nelson to do the Abel Tasman Great walk. The owner was super helpful to me booking 2 rooms as we needed a room before and after. We were able to leave our luggage with her and when we arrived after the walk it was late and we were tired, so she let us sort payment the next day instead. Rooms were lovely and the location is super handy. Will definitely return.

So, what was the entertainment in the car park??

Some muppet parked outside my room and didn't park straight... which isn't so bad, it was the idiot that wanted to park between that car & the fence of the swimming pool... the park was so tight he had to climb over to the back seat to get out... yet 10m away were plenty of spare car parks.

He believed that was his park... left a note on the car next to his and complained to the office about 9.30 @ night, with no avail as they didn't know who's car it was.

Apart from that, my room was nice, though alone on business I managed to get a 2 bedroom suite with a spa bath....

What was another interesting matter, was the length of time the people in the unit above me spent in the shower... no regard for conserving water.

The bed was comfy, the breakfast I ordered was on time, though when you order fruit, you don't expect, stewed apple.

Over all a nice stay.

Thanks for your review Jim K, very amusing reading. The funniest part is that the person who's car you are describing actually turned out to be the very clean people in the room above you. Glad you still managed to have a nice stay and we look forward to hosting you again.
