What an experience! From the moment we arrived and saw the marina view we loved it. The rooms with a view are slightly more expensive but well worth it. The inclusive complementary German style breakfast was excellent and having the linen and crockery replaced every day was a real treat. The adjoining restaurant was also very good.

Room Tip: Request a marina view

After contacting quite a few places in Nelson looking for somewhere where we could check in earlier than 2pm as we had a wedding at 3pm and wanted to be able to shower and change on arrival - most places either didn't bother answering or told us we would have to pay for another night. I contacted Harbourside and immediately was made to feel welcome. Rose was helpful on the phone and we were informed we could check in at anytime.

On arrival my husband and I were both greeted by Rose. Our check in was hassle free as we were shown to our room we were introduced to other staff members.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Had everything you could want.

Continental breakfast was included in the room price and the selection covered every option. Hubby decided he wanted to upgrade to a cooked breakfast which was done straight away and he was more than happy with it.

The location is in a quiet area and overlooks the Marina. There is a restaurant right next door which we didn't try but will next time we are back.

We cannot recommend this place enough and we will be back to stay again next time in Nelson.

Thank you Rose and Simon for showing how easy it is to provide such a high level of customer service. So many places have forgotten how to provide it.

Great facilities, spotlessly clean, nice & quiet location but easy access to CBD and excellent restaurants nearby = great nights sleep with complimentary continental breakfast. Left an item of clothing which Rose promptly mailed the next day at no charge!

On the way out to dinner (on a Saturday night in this town we'd never been to in our life) my wife suffered a severe bout of vertigo making her totally disoriented and unable to stand up straight. We returned to the motel and sought advice from Rose. She dropped everything, called the local hospital and then drove us to the associated Urgent Care facility. The doctor on duty explained the cause and prescribed medication. The visit took about an hour in total, after which we called Rose again and she cheerfully came back to pick us up and drove helter skelter to make the local pharmacy 2 minutes before closing. Since we'd missed dinner scheduled for two hours earlier she then offered to fix us something light to eat. We've never struck any stranger so empathic and supportive. Obviously Rose is one of those unique people who sincerely care for others. She epitomizes the best that human nature can offer. No-one could ask for more. Here folks lives one of the truly beautiful people of the world. Our heartfelt thanks Rose for treating strangers as if they were kin. You are wonderful.

Rose and Simon were extremely friendly and helpful hosts.......they went the extra mile or two for us. Location was near the airport, which was convenient for our next stop. The room was neat and clean. I would definitely recommend this motor lodge if you are staying in Nelson.
