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
