I stayed in The Sails for 3 nights whilst attending a friend's wedding in Nelson and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. As others have said, this is more like a boutique hotel than a motel and the fact that the owners are onsite means that the level of personal service is top-notch. Rooms are small but somehow seem to fit an enormous, very comfortable bed, full kitchen, modern bathroom and and all the mod-cons (TV, Sky, iPod docking station, etc) into a compact and inviting space. Breakfast can be ordered the night before and whilst I didn't indulge, looked to be delicious with a great choice. On-site parking is available and cafes, restaurants, pubs and Nelson town centre are only about a 5-10 min walk away.
A special mention to Max & Robyn for lending their GPS so my friend and I could find our way to the (out-of-town) wedding venue as well as lending a formal jacket to my friend who had left his at home! Nothing was too much trouble and we really felt welcome.
Don't bother looking for anywhere else to stay in Nelson - just stay here.More
