Boutique Motel Nelson

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2013

As I travel for work I have had the opportunity to 'try' out the various rooms on offer at the Boutique Motel in sunny Stoke. From standard studio to two bedroom unit, spa bath unit, and the larger spacious units all are clean and tidy, well appointed, and beautifully decorated. They have plenty of off street parking, the room rate is reasonable and you would be hard pressed to find a warner welcome anywhere.

We had a wonderful over nights stay at the Boutique Motel in Stoke, Nelson. The decor was very shic and modern. Very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom complete with spabath.
We found the staff very friendly and accommodating. An excellent tavern/restaurant across the road and supermarket close by.

I stayed here for 2 nights on my own after dropping my daughter off to stay with a friend. Check in was good - the lady in reception (Nicky I think) was very nice and gave me an 'upgrade' to a downstairs room. The room was lovely - very clean and nicely decorated with a patio door leading out into a small garden area. A variety of shops and food outlets are close by if required. I had 2 great nights sleep which was what I needed after a noisy stay in Auckland and there was very little road noise although Motel is on the main road in Stoke. This was a lovely place to stay - small friendly and very comfortable.

Dear AvrilScottishBorders,
Thank you for your lovely thoughts and words regarding your stay here with us.
It was good that you could catch up on your sleep as travelling within New Zealand does involve long distances for our overseas drivers and the rear unit we allocated you is a delightfully pleasant and quiet unit.
I have just arrived back from holiday myself and am now catching up with the workload that running a motel requires which is why I have been slow in replying.
I hope your trip home was smooth with no incidents along the way.
Is the weather warming up at all over your way?

Our stay at the Boutique Motel was just as we expected. The standard studio we booked served our needs as we were out a lot catching up with friends and family. The location suited us perfectly as we wanted to be close to family in Stoke. A choice of restaurants and supermarkets across the road was a bonus.

Stayed here for a nite on our way to Picton to catch the ferry. Not as close to town as would have liked but not a biggie as we had a car. Clean but small room. All amenities required were provided, including a fan, nice decor. Good shower and bathroom area. Would recommend if a brief stop over.

We are pleased that the Motel and the Unit you booked suited your needs for your overnight stay with us. We do our best (hopefully) to supply excellent accommodation with all that is required by our guests to ensure their stays are enjoyable.
Hope the ferry crossing was enjoyable for you and that the sea was not rough.

We spent Easter in Nelson and had a brilliant stay. Everything was as before on our previous visits, in fact it was even better. Our unit was very clean, a great welcome from Nicky and Bailey the cat and as usual Nicky and Frank could not do enough for us. As regular guests they are only too happy for us to borrow the motel's courtesy vehicle, which for us was brilliant as we travel to Nelson by plane. We make regular trips to Nelson so this is the only motel we stay at, and certainly recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: We always book a downstairs unit as they are a bit more roomy

Dear Viv S,
Again we thank you for your kind words re the Boutique Motel.
We always enjoy your visits as you are both, as we in the trade say, independant, well travelled and happy guests.
Our courtesy car is proving to be popular with our guests and it is seeing a fair bit of the Nelson region.
Take care and hopefully it will be a great winter for you.

The room was small but just about adequate, and first appearance was favourable. We were also pleased that the owner had waited for us, even though we turned up nearly 3 hours later than expected. However, when we went to eat breakfast the next morning, the muesli provided was 3 months past its use-by date, and when my husband checked under the bed (habit of his in all hotels/motels) he found lots of dust and fluff, an old biscuit wrapper and used tissues from some previous occupants - so not the best of cleaning regimes here. Owner tries hard but is missing out on some of the basics here.

Dear IMUK,
Thank you for making time during your busy holiday to find time to write this review.
We appreciate all feed back from guests.
When a guest does have a complaint we prefer to deal with it at the immediate time. It is difficult to verify any rights or wrongs many days later. As you pointed out the cereal issue to me at checkout I apologised and investigated how this came about and have double checked our stock which was just new in a couple of days prior to your arrival. The other issue was not mentioned therefore I could not check the unit you were allocated. I myself was on holiday when your review came through and upon arrival back to work found that housekeeping had done their work shedule thoroughly which includes checking under and vacuuming under the beds.
We are disappointed that you were unable to comment upon the more positive aspects of your stay with us.
