Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

Our arrival was greeted by the new manager, who confirmed our booking and showed us to our room. All rooms are upstairs so probably not suitable for anyone with limited mobility as I didn't see a lift. The room was well appointed and tidy with all the basics we needed for our stay. Being based on the west side of...

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. I would like to point out that 3 of our rooms are on the ground floor, two of which are access units with large walk-in showers. Guests with restricted mobility are usually well catered for.

As I understand it Gary took over this motel in the past 6 months. It is a very modern motel in a very good location on the outskirts of Blenheim going toward Richmond (and Abel Tasman) The thing that seperates this motel from the others is the attention to detail obythe owner. When my battery went dead in the rental...

Nicely decorated, clean room with excellent facilities and TV channels. Free DVDs to borrow. Friendly staff. It was a pleasure to stay here. The only problem I encountered was poor wifi reception in my room.

Thank you very much for your overall review - we enjoyed having you stay here. We have looked into the wifi issue more closely as this is the first comment of this nature we have experienced. We have tested the wifi signal strength in all of the rooms, including those further from the wifi antenna than yours, and did not...

We stayed in the one-bedroom suite which allowed the children to have their own room. The room was fairly spacious, very modern and well looked after. The room was also very quiet, and presumably well insulated. The only downside of this is it did tend to be quite hot even with the windows open and (motel supplied) fan going. It...

This motel was booked by a travel agent for us (two rooms) for one night. The definition of the word" boutique": is any small, exclusive business offering customised service. The word small describes this motel, however it is not an exclusive business offering customised service. The rooms are dated and overcrowded with furniture and "nick naks". The colour schemes is...

Boutique7, Owner at Boutique Motel Nelson, responded to this review

We appreciate any useful feedback that identifies areas in need of improvement, particularly as we only took over this business in December 2016. Refurbishment of the bottom floor units is on our agenda and we certainly favour a more minimalist decor. We are not sure about the bordello reference as that is beyond our experience but we will take your...

the place was clean and tidy but we were asked quite abruptly to leave the room at 9am as the bath was leaking downstairs into other units, this happens sometimes but wasnt handled very well at all, told there were no other places we could shower in the complex so up and gone we were, no sorry on leaving no...

Dear 315mr, It is a shame your one night stay resulted as it did. Numerous misunderstandings happening. In the 13 years that we have been running the Boutique Motel we have never had a guest stay in either of our Spa Studio Units and leave the bath filled to the top over night as you and your partner did. Your...

Enjoyed our stay, found the motel location ideal for our Nelson visit. Its quiet and well appointed. Its located across the road from the Stoke Shopping Centre, where there is a number of eating places plus two supermarkets. We dined at the Bach Restaurant, the food and service was excellent.

I've stayed here once before and given I am back on business happily re-booked after my last experience. The room is very attractive and extremely well presented. Everything is extremely clean and today and there are several features which put it well above average; - breakfast (continental) - channel selection on TV is substantial - additional small appliances such as...
