Just a short walk from the centre of Nelson (opp Trafalgar Park sports ground), I-SITE Visitor centre and bus station if you don't have a car. Debbie and Ross were most helpful and friendly with ideas of places to eat, letting us wash clothes late and store luggage while we tramped. The rooms are large and clean with a very... More

We stayed for 2 nights in what turned out to be a spacious, comfortable, and modern unit with all fittings and equipment of a very high quality. Our hosts Debbie and Ross were very helpful and friendly and when asked were able to recommend restaurants which they had been to. Both restaurants were brilliant. We stayed on a Friday and... More

room fresh and clean, nice kitchenette and good to have it separate from living area. Hosts friendly, an easy walk to shops. Cute grocery shop/dairy with fresh fruit and veg right next door. Compared to other motels I have stayed at in Nelson, it is an economical option. The only improvement I would like to see is stays on the... More

Recently stayed at Kings gate motel for three nights for my first visit to Nelson. The motels are very clean, modern and really well priced for four star accommodation. Debbie and Ross were so helpful during our stay and gave us lots of advice, thanks for the great cafe hints! Would recommend Kings gate for anyone looking to stay in... More

We stayed here for 6 days, nice room with everything we needed. The hosts were lovely and at the end of our stay our flight was later than the check out time of 10am, they kindly offered us another room for us to relax in until it was time to leave. It's a nice walk to town too.

Wonderful hosts, amazing service, and everything a visitor could expect for. Very close to town center. We had a wonderful time in Nelson during our family trip. Our children relaxed in the pool after long days out doors. Very family friendly, even provided pool toys for the children to play with. Thomas/Sudha

The owners were very welcoming... More

Kingsgate was lovely and we had a relaxing stay. We really liked how close to the city centre we were although it was a little loud - not a huge deal though because it definitely quietened by 8.30pm both nights we were. Rooms were clean and a decent size.

Kingsgate was a pleasant place to stay. The rooms were fresh and welcoming, and we loved the little pot of mints! It was nice how the motel was so close to town, but if you were to walk up, you'd still get some exercise. The motel isn't 'the flashiest ever,' but it is a sweet and inviting motel to stop... More

Motel is in a good location near city centre. Room was clean. Bathroom needs updating and water pressure in shower was very bad.
