Again a wonderful welcome from Lynn & Stephan. This is truly a wonderful place to stay and relax. The two bedroomed unit was very well equipped with everything we needed and spotlessly clean. Lynn's artwork on the wall was greatly admired and the homemade cookies very welcome.

Sorry we only had two nights here.

We stayed at this wonderful motel for 12 nights, the host Lynn and Stephan are extremely warmth and helpful, the unit was clean with full amenities in bedroom to bathroom, we even have milk in the fridge and homemade cookies upon our arrival. Before our arrival, Lynn and Stephan proposed to fix up a bulk bed for our 2 teenager boys so that we can keep the space in living room and save the trouble to fix and arrange the sofa bed everyday. On Christmas day, when we open our door, a great surprise, we found a present from Santa! These are all the extra miles they made for their guests, which we really appreciate.

We felt so comfortable and at home till we even shorten our stay in Picton just to stay an extra night in this cosy and lovely motel before heading home. We strongly recommend this motel to all visitors who wish to visit Nelson, you will never be disappointed. Nelson is a nice city with sunshine and sea breeze, there are a lot of things to do like fruits picking, nice beach, cycling, walking and a fantastic weekend market which not to be missed.

We sincerely would like to thank Lynn and Stephan, without them our trip will not be so awesome. We really miss your motel and hospitality.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and cosy. Nice and Quiet!

We came to Nelson to stay for a short while, and we ended up staying at this wonderful accommodation for ten days! Our reasons are: the Hosts - Lynn and Stephan - are great folks who are very friendly, warm, and helpful. We felt like family by the time we left! The units are good sized and well equipped for cooking and relaxing - and they are immaculate! The location is great, too - it is outside the city but close enough to everything to not feel you have to travel long distances to get to anything. From here, you can walk or bike ride to the beach, tennis courts, and we even rode our bikes to the city. The bike paths in this part of New Zealand are amazing - quite flat, and through beautiful areas. We will be back to stay here as soon as we can!

We strongly recommend this motel. Our room as as per the photos (we have all had the experience where the actual room does not match the photo in any way), and the location is great for people on holiday in Nelson - near the beach, a short drive to the Nelson CBD, and easy access either to the Kaiteriteri and the Abel Tasman or the east coast destinations. An to boot Stephan and Lynn are so so friendly. Lynn is a keen artist and gave my kids painting lessons with using wax. A great stay.

When we arrived in Nelson we had no idea where to stay so headed to the Information Centre. While waiting in the queue we picked up the card for Ascot Lodge and phoned Lynn & Stephan. Right from the first "Hello" I knew we had found the right place for us.
When we arrived at Ascot Lodge the welcome was like coming home from holiday. Lynn & Stephan told us all about what to see, where to go and made us so welcome. Over the nights we were there it was like staying with friends but having the freedom of our own accomodation.
We are in the mature age group but I believe that people of any age would enjoy their hospitality. By the time we left 5 nights later it was tears and hugs just like saying good bye to close friends. We will never forget our time at Ascot Lodge and are planning our next trip to NZ, from Australia, to include some nights in Nelson.
Thank you Lynn and Stephan, you are very special people and made the 5 nights we spent with you the highlight of our holiday.

We arrived here with an itinerary that took us down the west coast to Queenstown, then we heard that the bridge at Harihari had been taken out by floods so we had to arrange our whole itinerary, Lyn & Steve were helpfull to the extreem in assisting us with all the new arrangements that we had to make. Nothing was too much trouble in assisting us and made the next week of our holiday a joy to behold. The accommodation we had with the 2 bedrooms was clean, neat and tidy and had a deck and outside furniture along with plenty of sunshine, just what we wanted.
Stay here and you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: We had the two bedroom unit at the end of the drive complete with full kitchen.

Thanks for your kind comments, we enjoyed having you all here. We followed the weather as you progressed and it looked a bit of a mixed bag but hope your friends managed their flight to see Mt Cook & the Glaciers. Also hope they managed to get out to Milford Sound, at least by air it sounded more of a chance than by land!
