“Perfect for one night”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We stayed here one evening, and found the room a bit small, but clean and comfortable. The rooms are odd shaped as the exterior is in the form of a pagoda, but the windows provided a lot of sunlight in the morning. A continental breakfast was provided free of charge in the large common room the next morning. Internet was available for a fee. There are several restaurants within a 5 minute walk, and the beach is also a 5 minute walk across the park.

Have stayed here several times. Staff always friendly, and the complimentary breakfast is a plus. Pleasant garden setting and spacious accomodation, convenient for beach and cafes etc. I have made it my local when visiting Nelson

I only stayed here for one night. The room was generally clean (the wardrobe wasn't or behind tables) and so was the bathroom. Friendly staff and nice facilities and location. I woud stay here again.

Quite a coincidence that we had spent a few days earlier in the year in Hawaii to book a couple of days here as a result of it being recommended by an agency. Found the location central and easy to find among a shopping area which catered for most. Ideal suites for just a couple on a short stay but found that the units weren't very sound proof. The walls and acoustics were a little thin to the point that guests next door and above were inconsiderate and annoying by being extremely noisy which carried late into the night.
The Continental breakfast was a plus as was the friendliness of the receptionist.

Reviewed 18 August 2011

This is my second review of Aloha Lodge, I wrote one last years as well.

The reason for the update is that I was critical of the 20 year old TVs. They seem to have purchased some flat screen TVs which are very impressive. Not those awful little things that some places have these are big enough to actually see what's going on, excellent !

Also, the room I was in had new curtains, real blockout-type curtains that do the job superbly.

Still the internet is crap along with the crappy little heaters, though this time there were at least 2 of them, noisy as they were.

This is a great place to stay, stay here and don't pay too much attention to my criticisms unless you need total luxury, which I'm not sure you will easily get in Nelson anyway.

Best wishes
