Arrived to stay the night as we were doing one of the local wine tours. Greeted by two lovely owners who allowed us to leave our bags prior to the check in time. Once we arrived back we were kindly given some complementary milk and shown to our room. Very comfortable bed, quiet and my partner was especially thrilled as... More

We got a room upstairs, which had two bed rooms. The main bed room with a double bed downstairs, and when you walk up some stairs you find the second room with 2 single beds. This worked out very well for my family as we have a 1 year old, and we could set up the portacot upstairs and let... More

We have been travelling through NZ and really have like all of our motels but this one was a little off. It was still in the same price range for us but it was a little drab and dark compared to others we have stayed in. The towels were not clean and the bed linens were without a blanket so... More

Walking distance to city centre and eateries, yet plenty of space to park your car on-site without any hassle. We travel mostly on a "loosely planned" basis, so despite having no booking, got upgraded to a larger room no cost. Gotta be happy with that. Happy to recommend for either leisure or business travel.

The Anderson family run a first class establishment offering excellent value for money. It is close to the Nelson C.B.D and there is plenty of parking with clean and quite spacious appartments, some of which stretch over two floors. Highly recommended.

We stayed 4 nights, and it was a good location, but was not overly clean... This was the major downside. Maid would empty garbage and that's about it. We could see that the room wasn't clean from prior guests. Rooms could use major updates and a good cleaning. We toured NZ for 4 weeks and this was the dirtiest motel.... More

We stayed 5 nights while attending a function. Booked an executive studio on ground floor. Room had been recently refurbished, and was large for a studio. Spotlessly clean and rooms were serviced daily. Nice outlook over the park. Host was helpful and friendly.Excellent value
