St Arnaud is a beautiful location right next to Lake Rotoiti in the Tasman district of New Zealand. On a sunny day it is as good as anywhere in the world....but it can be cold in Winter. The motel is first class and well equipped for the self catering traveller, which you need to be if travelling in this area... More

Stayed here a couple of times and it's great. The staff are super friendly and accomodating. We got back from Rainbow Ski field and got drenched, Yvonne saw us trying to dry our clothes on the line and offered the drying room.. Awesome!!!

We stayed in the 1 bedroom log cabin motel room and were quite comfortable. The staff were friendly and allowed an early check in. The room had a basic kitchenette with a small oven/grill and a cooktop. There is an onsite laundry. The motel is a 10 minute walk from the national parks visitor centre or a short drive to... More

I was really impressed by the friendly and efficient service. So willing to help out with the minor disasters(lost phone) and trivial needs (how can I enjoy my holiday without a kitchen whisk). We had frosty weather, but the unit was warm and comfortable. Good value for St Arnaud.

Our unit at Nelson Lakes Motels was very comfortable and well-equipped - with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. We were a little surprised at the costly wifi (most places do not charge for wifi) but maybe this was because of the isolated location. Certainly not something that would put us off staying here again. The local general store... More

I stayed in both the cabins & lodge recently (April 2014) and found both to be excellent value for money. Service is top-notch and I was most impressed by how clean everything is. Well done, Nelson Lakes Motels! Your efforts are appreciated

Stayed for one night in a studio unit and received warm welcome. Unit was modern in design and well appointed throughout, Fantastic panoramic views of the mountains and a 5 minute walk to Lake Rotoiti made this an idyllic stay! Easy to walk to small village centre. Would recommend without hesitation!

We had a one bedroom motel unit which had a number of differences from most motels we have stayed at in New Zealand. Positive differences were: (obviously) a separate bedroom, and a further single bed in the main room; a small oven (as well as a hob and microwave); a couch that would easily seat 3; great water pressure in...

Stayed here as part of our annual South Island Xmas 'tiki' tour. Very nice log cabin studio that was comfy, clean and quiet. Great track at the back to the property to Lake Rotoiti, which is very beautiful (shame about the rain). Reasonably priced considering there aren't a lot of options in St Arnaud.
