Great location, fantastic hosts!
Room was large and clean, with all the amenities. Safe and secure and although on a busy road once inside your unit, quiet! Close to beautiful beach and a stunning two minute drive to the Nelson CBD. Free internet and parking! Home away from home! Can't wait to go back to beautiful sunny Nelson and stay here again!

We stayed in a one bedroom spa unit that was unfortunately right next to a busy road. The unit was clean and tidy and the hosts were very helpful.
The only thing that really lets this property down is that it is on one of main roads into Nelson.
If you are a light sleeper I would suggested asking for a unit away from the road.

We were able to stay in an upstairs unit because of the help given with our luggage. The unit was extremely spacious and well lit. Just a few minutes' walk saw at at one of Nz"s most famous beaches and a wide variety of restaurants. We were welcomed charmingly.

The rooms at Castles Motel are a good size, and are fitted out well with fridge, microwave and storage facilities for those who want to make their own breakfast and sort out an evening meal for themselves. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided every day. TV and free Wifi are both provided. Laundry facilities are available on site. It's just 5-10 minutes from the beach, which is sandy and very popular. Shops and restaurants are close by.
Rowena and Allen are excellent hosts and are so, so helpful.

Room tip: All seem to be fine.

First impression might be that it's a gimmick given its styling as a castle. That would normally suggest it's rundown inside. However, we were hugely surprised. Nice spacious room, partially modernised with new furniture and upgraded bathroom, wooden beams and a generous wifi allowance.

Welcome was good, location a few mins from the beachfront and even closer to the main restaurants is excellent.

Parking might be tight but unless you are in a bus it's nothing to worry about.
