Reviewed 9 March 2014

We enjoyed are first night stay so much that we returned to Nelson two more times during our travels and stayed at the Bay Crest. Phil (the owner) was very accommodating to all of our needs. Our room was modern, very clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend.

We were so pleased with our stay at the Bay Crest that we extended a night. There was even a handy laundry room on the premises, and the helpful manager even transferred our load from the washer to the dryer while we went to dinner. The room was spacious and clean and the bed very comfortable. We were so glad to have made the choice to stay at the Bay Crest Motor Lodge in Nelson.

I am a company rep, and it took me a long time to find decent accommodation close to Tahuna Beach..... I'm here every 2 weeks and here are the reasons I choose Bay Crest Motor Lodge:

"Bay Crest" is:
-Friendly
-Extremely Clean, tidy and Modern
-Very good value for money
-Constantly good patrons (yes this makes a huge difference)
-Quiet
-Fantastic hosts with great local knowledge.

Thanks, I totally recommend a few nights here!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, the studios are probably the most modern, value for money in the South Island.

We were delighted with our 3-night stay at Bay Crest. It was somewhat further from the city center than we expected, but no more than 8-10 minutes by car and there were nearby options for dining and groceries. All of the rooms were large and recently redone with new furniture, countertops and efficient kitchen facilities. There was some road noise during the afternoon, and the airport was close by, but all of the noise fell away during nightime and early morning hours. As it turns out, I suffered a knee injury during my visit to Nelson. The motel owner, Phil, could not have been more caring and helpful, a genuinely nice man with a warm laugh and a generous spirit. I don't expect you to spend two days icing your injury, but it was rewarding to know that a local owner was very much in your corner. We would definitely choose this place if we visited the Nelson area again.
