“great all-round motel”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

clean, friendly, helpful, quiet and well appointed, as well as a great location close to Nelson city centre, the marina and the river walkway (not to mention Trafalgar Park for the sport), this motel is a great option. We stayed in a studio, which had a couple of cooker rings, microwave and all the pots and pans you need to make a quick breakfast, a decent bathroom with spa bath (and even a washing machine if you needed it. They looked after our bags for us when we checked out and called us a taxi for the airport at the end of our trip. Can't fault the service and friendliness from anyone we came across working there.

Good value and we'd stay there again next time we are in Nelson.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the end of the right hand block away from Trafalgar Street. You'll get no road...

We've stayed here twice now because its such a handy location. Easy walk to town for shops, restaurants & the awesome Nelson market. The rooms are tidy, clean & well appointed. The road is a bit noisy with the balcony door open, but otherwise no complaints, its a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Back from the road if you're a light sleeper.

We are pleased that you have chosen to stay with us on more than one occasion and thank you for your comments. When you make your next reservation, ask for a quiet room and we will ensure that you are allocated a room away from the road. All our rooms are double glazed so any road noise would only be from the outside balcony.
We look forward to hosting you again in the future .

We walked in off the street as our planned accommodation was unsuitable. Fortunately there was a studio available which was a poolside studio. Families were using the pool but were not noisy and we did not feel any lack of privacy. The apartment was immaculately clean and had everything we needed, kitchen, bathroom and laundry. It had the most comfortably firm bed and we had a wonderful sleep. People at reception were very pleasant and we were very happy to stay here. Great location close to central Nelson, within easy walk of many cafes, restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay here again.

We Spent one night here during our New Zealand tour and have to say it was by far the best motel we stayed in for the whole trip! We were greeted by the lovely manager and her chocolate Labrador, roxy. We arrived quite early and really appreciated that the room was ready and we could check in. The room was absolutely spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly want. It even had a washing machine an drier. The drier was broken during our stay but on reporting it to the manger, who said they had already called out an engineer a few days ago ( and assumed it had been fixed) offered to dry all our clothes for us! We came back from lunch and they were all dry in our room ad folded up. Such a nice gesture! Milk was provided for us for hot drinks and we had a lovely balcony where we sat in the sun and had a drink.. The location is very handy for the town and we found it very relaxing and quiet. I would highly recommend this accommodation and if we ever return to nelson we will definitely stay again.

We identify with you as alovely young couple who we enjoyed having to stay with us.
We thankyou for your understanding about the drying facility in your room.
This has since been replaced with a completely new unit.

When you return home to UK we hope you will be soon reunited with your lovely dog that you left behind, and that this will compensate for sadly leaving New Zealand which you have been exploring and enjoying so much.

We hope you will be planning another visit to NZ in the not too distant future and that we will have the pleasure of hosting you again.
All the Best

We booked this facility through the i-Site in Nelson. Very convenient location. Well appointed studio apartment, being fully self-contained, including laundry facilities, This was good value for money, being located a minute's walk from the centre of Nelson and 2 minutes from the waterfront.

A real pleasure to stay here. It had everything. Dishwasher. Washing machine and dryer.... and a pretty full selection of SKY tv. Was on a main road but my room was quiet. My room was just a studio. There were apartments there as well. Quite a bit more expensive but I wish I'd looked at one. They must be nice.

Thankyou for your comments.
The Studio room that you were allocated due to availability, is the only one of its kind in our complex and is more suitable to a couple for one night or for one person on their own.
All our Studio apartments are equipped with kitchen and laundry facilities, ensuites and have balconies upstairs or patio area downstairs.

We hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the luxury of one of our apartments on your next visit.

We booked this hotel after reading reviews on tripadvisor, and I'm glad we did. We arrived in Nelson 1.5 hours before check in, so thought we'd just drop in to grab a map to have a look around. Lady at reception told us our room was ready & we could check in early, which was much appreciated. Was great to have a washing machine in the room, they even gave us a second lot of washing powder for free, lots of other places would charge. Room was lovely & clean, little kitchen with everything we needed, small but adequate bathroom. Nice bed & comfy chairs. Little balcony & a window overlooking the pool. Lady at reception offered us pamphlets of things to do & told us of places to eat. Easy walk into the town centre & nice walks along the water.

Thankyou for your comments on our customer service. Friendly and welcoming is how we like to be perceived. Our property is well appointed, so it is difficult to find fault with the rooms, but the enjoyment of the facilities can be completely overlooked if the hospitality and service is neglected.
We are pleased that we were able to contribute to the enjoyment of your stay in Nelson.
