These apartments are lovely, clean and the kitchen wa swell equipped and would be great for a self catering stay. When we arrived it was going into winter and the room was chilly and took quite a while to warm up as there is only one electric heater.
The apartments are two stories we were on a months trip and so had quite a lot of luggage so it was great for us to be on the ground floor and near to the restaurant.
Highly recommended

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are lovely but if you have a lot of luggage it may be easier to be in a grou...

This was heaven. Our apartment was two storeys, two bedrooms, with all facilities. I would thoroughly recommend staying here. The affordable accommodation suits all types of groups, families etc. As we were a family of four - all adults - it was like being at home with plenty of room to move. It was spacious, had very comfortable beds and it was great to to sit around the gas fire with a few drinks. We booked for two nights and decided to stay for three. We ate in the restaurant one night and the staff very warm and attentive. The meal was delicious with free soup for starters thrown in. Free wifi. It is central to going one way to Nelson city and the other way out to Richmond and beyond. Lovely walk to the end of Monaco and great to take photos (when the tide is in). Stoke shops are just up the road for supplies if you wanted to stay in to cook and it has the best cake shop in the whole of NZ. All the reception staff were helpful and went out of their way to make our stay the best.

Well appointed affordable clean rooms in a unique building close to the airport, well trained helpful staff. We stayed one night and retuned for an extra two nights and will revisit any time we need to stay in Nelson.

Loved the character of this place!! Just stayed one night. In the main building/hotel room area. Bed was very comfy - slept really well. Bathroom is large and very nice. Didn't eat here as had already made plans to meet friends for tea and brunch. Will have to stay longer next time.

It is a shame that you could not try the new menu at The Monaco Kitchen, as the feedback has been amazing around the style, maybe next time.

I couldn't believe it when we drove into this hotel, it looks like its been built straight out of an old German or English medieval town. We had a two story double room almost townhouse that was comfortable enough to live in. Its got a gas fire, lovely furnishings and little touches that make this a home away form home and like you've stepped back in time. The staff were warm and friendly and happy to help with all our needs. We cooked dinner two nights and ate in their restaurant for one. We had the feast meal which was delicious! Stoke shops are just up Songer Street if you need any supplies, and its location along the waterfront makes for beautiful walks and great photography.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, in a long time and I would recommend everyone to stay here as its close to everything and is one of the most unique and pleasurable venues. It really makes you feel like you are in old English-New Zealand.

As my wife and I with our 3 children drove in to the Grand Mercure Nelson hotel in January this year, I commented that the hotel looked just magnificent and reminded me of places in Europe. After a very long drive to Nelson, the very warm and friendly welcome at reception was really appreciated and, as when we walked into our two-storey, two-bedroom Riverside Cottage, I told my family I wished we were staying for a week – instead of the 2 nights we had booked! It is a beautiful hotel with classic features together with everything you need in the self-contained cottages.
