“Perfect for our Team”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

The Saxton Lodge provided excellent accomodation for our team playing at National Champs. The location was perfect, just up the road from our venue. The rooms were spotless when we arrived and were cleaned daily. The facilities on offer were very good.

The best thing about the Saxton Lodge was the "nothing is too much trouble" attitude from the proprieters. They were excellent and helped make our stay one of the best our team has had.

Many thanks Craig and team...

Reviewed 16 February 2011

After trawling the older motels close to Tahunanui and being given high room rates and without air con on a very hot day, we decided to head back towards Stoke as we needed to be their the next day. My husband was getting fed up by this stage and decided to try the Saxton and blow the cost (not like him at all). What a pleasant surprise the studio unit was much cheaper than any other quoted. No cooking facilities in room but a communial kitchen available, we were given a toaster to use as we wanted to cook toast and that along with the coffee and tea making facilities in our room was fine for breakfast, told to use any dishes from kitchen and take to our room.. The accomodation was very clean large comfy bed in a large room and great bathroom facilities. Manager was great and we will certainly go back again when in Nelson

Reviewed 23 June 2010

This is a great motel if you are visiting friends or playing sport at the adjacent Saxon Field, but a car is essential; the motel is located between Nelson and Richmond - there are no shops or restaurants nearby. The room was huge, and had been warmed in advance of our arrival - a very nice touch on a bleak day. Unlike most motels in NZ, there are no cooking facilities in the units, but there is a large communal kitchen, and a small function room. It would be ideal for a sporting team, but not for a couples getaway.
