Super friendly host, reasonable cleaniness, cosy warm, super compfey bed. Surprisingly quiet, didn't hear any street noise, (always a bonus eh). Décor a tad dated, carpet walls?? Located very handy to shops/malls.

i think other reviewers have summed this place up well. I was booked by a client so had no choice where to stay. Room was very dated and not suitable for work. Haven't seen a small CRT TV in a hotel for ages! Restaurant is good and location is very convenient. So for a basic stay it's fine but for... More

This was a central location in the township of Richmond. Interior of rooms are very dated, but price reasonable. Hosts are fantastic and can't do enough for you - nothing is too much trouble. Rooms were very clean. I would be happy to stay there again. The free wi-fi was a bonus. Although right in Richmond town, it was quiet... More

Very tired unfortunately but for the price this is to be expected. This was the last triple room available on Booking.com in all of Nelson and we simply needed a bed and roof over of heads so it served it's purpose. It's a handy location and we took a stroll to restaurants and the mall. We were greeted instantly by... More

Very friendly hosts. We were made very welcome and made to feel at home. Room was nice and clean, tidy but a little dated. All the amenities available. Right in the Main Street so close to shops. Has restaurant within motor inn. Great meals and very quick service. I would happily stay here again.

The hosts at this Motor Inn are very welcoming and always look after me well. Staying here is a great no fuss, relaxing experience. Travelling with a gluten free diet is not easy and they make everything work well for me.

I travel a fair bit for work, and the Wakefield is my regular when in the Nelson / Richmond area. It`s in an unusual location - smack in the middle of Richmonds main street, but this makes it an easy walk to shops and restaurants, and very quiet at night. The owners are great to deal with, the food and... More

A very pleasant and comfortable mixture of motel and B&B with resto (excellent breakfast) attached ... everything you could want right in the centre of a lovely village (town?) .. where I just happen to have been brought up 50 years ago... I will definitely use it again when I visit ...
