We stayed just the one night in May 2012. We were greeted promptly and our car parked for us (free if I recall correctly), and received a courteous and professional check in. Once the formalities were completed we were told about the market that takes place just a couple of blocks away on Saturday mornings - genuinely interested staff member. After settling into our room we walked toward the nearby restaurant precinct and ran into an old work colleague who is in Nelson several times per year, and the Rutherford is his first choice. Our room faced toward the Cathedral (see photo) which is lit at night and was a charming sight. The other photo with this review is of the city, and the market is in the open area halfway to the horizon. Ours was an 'executive room' on an upper floor. It was spotless and everything was most satisfactory. I thought the $190 NZD tariff was fair value for the location and quality. Bear in mind that this a city hotel and not a resort and it fits the bill very well.
