We stayed for four nights and used it as a base to do day trips out of nelson to the abel tasman walk, vineyards, and to a familys farm in brightwater. Definitely a great spot to be close to Richmond mall (where there is pak n sav for groceries, and kmart for clothing), the ASB aquatic park (5 mins) and... More

I would like to thank Lynn for the feedback. As I explained at the time you checked in your bookings were made through a travel agent who then purchased the rooms off a wholesale accommodation agent to whom we provide allocations. Our dealings were not directly with the agent that you approached and checking through the correspondence we received there... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two weeks whilst our house was being repaired after a flood and it really was our home away from home. Clean, warm and safe and secure. We felt very welcome and nothing was a problem should we have asked for it.

Stayed with 2 small dogs to take part in competitions, lovely helpful hosts, clean and comfortable room with all mod cons, the park out the back is a real bonus for walking dogs in a safe environment.

Stayed here for two nights. I must say this is one of the best motels we stayed at during our trip. We liked: - huge rooms - fully equipped with fridge, hotplates, microwave - flatscreen TV - good beds - big bathroom - good water pressure in the shower Preventing a perfect 5 star score: - limited parking, some angles...

Our one bedroom studio unit was extremely spacious and well laid out with a huge bathroom and divine extra large shower. The furniture and decor were up to date and in good condition with a wonderful kitchen and everything you could need. The standard of cleanliness could not be faulted. The size of the unit was impressive compared to many... More

Having had some excellent motels already in our tour of New Zealand we were expecting another quality motel. Parkside exceeded our expectations in all round quality. Yes we were upgraded to a family unit which made a difference in the amount of space we had available but not in the quality of the fixtures and fittings which were very good... More

I've stayed at Parkside Motel three times now and have never been disappointed, the rooms are well appointed and very clean and tidy. The service is always very good and management very accommodating. Lovely outlook over the park and very nice pool which is great for an afternoon cool off.

I would like to thank Bewitched11 for the positive review. This is the tone of response we work hard to achieve. I'm not sure what aspect of our location resulted in the loss of a point. We are not in a position to improve on the location of the complex but we are perfectly positioned to access the majority of... More

We are sorry that Cheryl did not enjoy her stay with us as the majority of our feedback is highly commended. We recall Cheryl staying for three days and showing her the room when she arrived to check in. We explained that the bathroom had recently been painted as part of our maintenance schedule and Cheryl was given a choice... More
