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

We stayed two nights in one of the 2 Bedroom Tourist units. The unit was very dated and tired but was also extremely clean. At $130 a night for a family this was good value accommodation for those more interested in value than luxury. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and the location was excellent - in the centre of... More

We booked 3 rooms for our family as we attended a wedding in Nelson for two nights recently. We were delighted we chose this motel. The rooms were clean, well appointed and roomy. It was a perfect location for our stay, and nice and close to town. The Owner/Managers were lovely and very helpful and friendly. We will certainly come... More

This is by far the best value for money motel that I have ever stayed in. We were impressed by the friendly manner with which were greeted and the presentation of our room. The motel proved to be quiet despite being on a main road - our unit was probably the closest to the road. We arrived 4 hours earlier... More

Efficient heater, great shower, Sky TV and a very comfortable bed. Ticks all the boxes for me. Karen is a great host too. Although situated on a main road, I wasn't bothered by traffic noise. This is the second time I've stayed at this motel and will definitely stay again when in Nelson.

We were initially booked into a different motel in Richmond but due to flooding were transferred over to Admirals Motor Inn. Check in and check out was a breeze as I had already paid for my booking on-line for the first motel (they would transfer the paymet for me). The staff were friendly and interested in our travels. We were... More
