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

Met with good, helpful service on arrival. Location of motel was very handy to nelson main centre. Our room was on the road side and very noisy, but to be expected as it is one of the main routes into Nelson. The room and furnishing are nothing special, but a good amount of space and separate kitchen. The cold tap... More

Booked a one night stay in a budget room although quite old the room was spotlessly clean and the bed was comfy, the motel has had some rooms renovated to a very good standard and if all the rooms are done to that standard it will be one of nelsons best, the manager is also a great source of information...

We only stayed one night but found the room clean and reasonably big. It was a bit dated but good value for what we paid. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - even insisting that we have their newspaper to read when we enquired about a paper. The location is good, being reasonably close to town. A nice place... More

We really liked this motel. We were warmly greeted on arrival and were shown to our ground floor room; a most welcome sight after a long day on the road in atrocious weather! The motel is well situated, a short stroll or shorter still drive to the CBD. Despite it's main road location we were not bothered by traffic noise.... More

We had a ground-floor apartment with spacious living room/bedroom and separate kitchen. All very clean and comfortable. We were next to the road behind a tall hedge, so it was a little dark with no outlook, but for what we paid we weren't expecting too much. Road noise wasn't a problem. 10 min walk into Nelson, where there are plenty... More
