Perfectly located just a few minute's walk from the beach and surrounded by bars and eateries, the Aloha Lodge is just the ticket. The rooms are large, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Parking is on site and free WiFi completes the package. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and breakfast is simple but adequate. Definitely stay here if you can.

Large room and bathroom, excellent Internet, great host, complimentary breakfast, and in a good location. My wife and I spent three weeks in NZ between the north and south islands, and consider the Aloha Lodge to be one of the best places that we stayed at!

A nicely situated and well kept accommodation run by the irrepressible Tony who was informative, welcoming and friendly. A complimentary buffet breakfast was included in the price. Would certainly recommend a stay here. We caught the bus into the town of Nelson which was easy from here.

Extremely comfortable and well equipped rooms / apartment. We were lucky to have the top room with the panoramic views. Free wifi, spacious and clean rooms and directly opposite the beach. We didn't use out sauna but the spa bath was blissful. A basic but sufficient breakfast is provided too. The host is extremely knowledgeable about Nelson and very friendly....

The Aloha Lodge was in a delightful location a little out of Nelson city centre with easy access and ample parking. The building was lovely with a small, welcoming courtyard to sit out in. Tony and the other staff were excellent. Our room was perfectly adequate, clean and with fridge and kettle facilities. No air con. The guest laundry is...

Tony wears many hats at Aloha. He greets you at the desk, dispenses pamphlets and advice about local sites, fixes breakfast, and entertains with his wit, cute dogs and cat. He looks up topics that we mention and later tells us of more local places to see that he has tailored to our interests. He remembered our names! He is...

We loved everything about this place; the location, the room, the views, the ambience, the owner's welcoming and friendly vibe- thank you, Tony! We (especially our wee boy Micah) also loved the motel matriarch, Titan the magnificent cat! Honestly, we can't wait to come back- we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. Thank you, Tony!
