We really liked this motel. We were warmly greeted on arrival and were shown to our ground floor room; a most welcome sight after a long day on the road in atrocious weather!
The motel is well situated, a short stroll or shorter still drive to the CBD. Despite it's main road location we were not bothered by traffic noise. Our room was a little dated, but very clean, well appointed, and oh so spacious, with a blissfully comfortable bed.
Great staff, great location, and great value for money...couldn't ask for more than that!

We had a ground-floor apartment with spacious living room/bedroom and separate kitchen. All very clean and comfortable. We were next to the road behind a tall hedge, so it was a little dark with no outlook, but for what we paid we weren't expecting too much. Road noise wasn't a problem. 10 min walk into Nelson, where there are plenty of bars/restaurants and shops. Check-in was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed two nights in one of the 2 Bedroom Tourist units. The unit was very dated and tired but was also extremely clean. At $130 a night for a family this was good value accommodation for those more interested in value than luxury. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and the location was excellent - in the centre of the CBD after a 10 minute walk and a convenience store nearby. We had a unit overlooking the carpark which was very quiet so would recommend this.

We booked 3 rooms for our family as we attended a wedding in Nelson for two nights recently. We were delighted we chose this motel. The rooms were clean, well appointed and roomy. It was a perfect location for our stay, and nice and close to town. The Owner/Managers were lovely and very helpful and friendly. We will certainly come back and stayed here again next time we are in Nelson. And would recommend this motel to anyone. Thanks guys.....

Room Tip: All rooms seemed pretty good.

This is by far the best value for money motel that I have ever stayed in. We were impressed by the friendly manner with which were greeted and the presentation of our room. The motel proved to be quiet despite being on a main road - our unit was probably the closest to the road. We arrived 4 hours earlier then our book in time - which wasn't a problem. The room was clean, very spacious, very well equipped and stocked with ample tea/coffee - even the milk was a large carton for 2 of us. This is definitely our 1st choice of motel when we return to Nelson.

Room Tip: Room 10. Good size, separate kitchenette, separate shower/toilet
