The staff were friendly, the breakfast was continental. The rooms were fine and clean and the bathroom very spacious. No air con though. Very close to the beach which was lovely, but no supermarket nearby, you had to go into Nelson TC but with no car it was too long a walk.

I think having the hand rail by the shower and toilet an excellent idea but the tiles were slippy so needs to have non slip ones put down for safety. The room was clean and tidy and the towels changed daily. The only thing that needed to be cleaned was the venetian blind in the bathroom which was very dusty. Excellent features as regards window locks so air can be let in as it was very hot. Tea and coffee making facilities provided and the complimentary continental breakfast was great with a good variety. Would recommend and stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a studio room which was spacious and big enough for two people with a good size bathroom.

We stayed there for one night in the studio room. Very comfortable and clean. Good wifi. Breakfast included. It's a short drive to the golf course if you are into that, and a shorter walk to the beach. It's about 5 klms out of the cbd but there are enough restaurants and shops in the area so you don't have to go into the main part of town anyway.
The staff could not do enough to help, they even helped with our ongoing accommodation. The phoned ahead to a place in Arrowtown and also to our Milford Sound trip. Nothing was too much trouble.

Rooms are small but why are you in your room with so much to see and do?
Breakfast area also has couch and chairs seating area and outside patio seating area. Breakfast was juice, cerals, fruits toast jams coffee and tea. Staff helpful and available as soon as you page them from front desk.

We liked the look of the promotional photo - took a chance and phoned, and got an amazing deal.
We were upgraded to an executive suite, which was not only had great views, but also, being octagonal, was kind of quirky, yet fun! The suite contained everything we needed, and more. Although we were not able to get the wifi to work (we were offered use of the computer kiosk, but chose not to as we came in late at night, and couldn't be bothered).
A continental breakfast was included in the price, and offered a great selection and plenty of it.
The management couple have only just taken over that week, couldn't do enough for us, and I get the impression there is even more good things to come. Good luck (but don't change the front garden as it a beautiful oasis and a real feature).
We'll be back!

Room Tip: We got a great deal on the Executive Suite. Value for money, worth a phone call to grab a bargain.

felt more like a hostel at hotel prices. Advertised wifi ( didn't work) and a spa but turned out this was only in certain more expensive rooms rather than a facility for all to use. Definitely mis advertising. Breakfast v poor too and no one on hand to refill when things ran out. We ended up searching the kitchen ourselves! Location was good though close to the beach with lots of places to eat nearby. Parking a real problem too, not enough room and they were not helpful with suggestions as to where would be best to park instead. Overall disappointing for the price.

We had a great stay. Night staff are friendly and accommodating. Comfortable beds. Nice to wake up to a healthy breakfast and then walk over the park to the beach and its neat kidz playground. Thanks. We will be back. J Hay (Richmond)
