Bay Crest Motor Lodge
Ranked #4 of 42 Hotels in Nelson
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2017 via mobile

My spouse and I visited Nelson mid December and were very pleased with our stay at Bay Crest. Upon arrival we were given a very friendly welcome and a useful overview of things to do around Nelson (with some helpful tips). The room was spotless and well maintained. The lodge is well located within Nelson but at the same time on a quiet road which means a peaceful nights rest.

What makes this motor lodge stand out from others is the excellent service provided. All staff are friendly and helpful and they go out of their way to assist guests where requested. I would highly recommend the Bay Crest Lodge as a base for anyone staying in Nelson.

This place suited us perfectly while away for a month in NZ. The owner and host is so lovely and helpful. The rooms are spacious, simple, yet comprising of anything you would need.

There is a fridge, crockery and a stove and microwave for cooking in, although we were lazy and ate out!

Really central location and perfect base for when traveling around Nelson and Abel Tasman.

Service is everything here. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome, at home and your custom valued. I stayed for two nights and look forward to a return visit.
I loved the spacious unit that was well equipped, light and spotlessly clean. No detail had been overlooked. There was a range of toiletries, plunger coffee and real milk (thank you!), biscuits and guides to Nelson and region - to list just a few of the extras.
I arrived late on my first day and was carless, tired and not keen to dine out; the manager very kindly offered to organise a meal to be sent to me from a local restaurant. It was delivered to my room all plated up and with a smile! These people definitely go the extra mile for their guests!
When I came to leave, a staff member offered me a lift to the airport as said they were travelling that way - how thoughtful.
Thanks for a very pleasant, comfortable and memorable stay.
Top marks for service!

We arrived to a warm welcome and immediately felt 'at home'. Our units were so comfortable and well equipped - everything we needed. The owner made it clear that if there was anything else we needed, or information about what was going on in Nelson, all we had to do was ask.

Stayed two nights and could t be more happier. Rooms were clean, cozy and good size. Staff was very helpful! Lady at reception gave us awesome tips for our travels! There is laundry and it works so well, just give dirty clothes to receptionist, go to the beach/kayaking/shopping/ etc and come back at the end of the day, all your clothes clean and ready. It costs all together 5 dollars. Not bad at all. Beach is quite near! Also airport, planes can fly quite close sometimes, but didn't bother our stay. We recommend this place!
