Reviewed 3 March 2014

My wife and I stayed here for four nights, it is so convenient for the centre of Nelson, just a 10 minute walk into the centre of town. Good parking on site and rooms that are clean, adequate and acceptable. The proprietor Georginia is really friendly and very helpful, we would definitely revisit and stay again, although, you probably do need to request a studio room if your stay is going to be longer than one night !

My partner and I stayed in the king size room in the lodge. Although it is very convenient with being close to town, we were very disappointed with out 3 night stay. There was little space in our room, making it awkward to move around and find a place to put our luggage. The bathroom was obviously previously a small wardrobe and certainly resembled one. We could hardly even sit on the toilet, couldn't get undressed/dressed in bathroom. It was ridiculous. When our room was 'serviced' the only thing they did was make our bed and swap our dishes. Our milk wasn't topped up, as well as towels not being washed for the 3 days we were there. To be honest, it was extremely overpriced for what we got, the only thing good about our stay was the location.

We stayed in the studio room and thought it was perfect for our long weekend away. Kitchenette was basic but had everything you needed, even biscuits to go with your tea! The cleaners even washed up our dishes during the day! The whole studio was very tidy and the bed was comfortable. A little noisy with some people stomping around upstairs on the first night, but the other 3 nights were fine. Very close to town!

This is a very conveniently located, nice and clean little motel. The owners are very friendly people and very hepful when it comes to planning the next parts of the trip. Our unit came with a nice little kitchen and a small but clean bathroom with everything one needed.

This small lodge near downtown Nelson was a perfect place to stay for 2 nights on our recent visit. We especially enjoyed meeting the director, Georgina McGrath, and chatting with her. She made us feel very welcome and apologized for the small room we were placed in. We did not mind the slight inconvenience of having a small room, the location and hospitality of Georgina made up for that!

We would stay there again! A great price for a good room!
