Stayed here for 4 nights whilst on holiday in Nelson. Rooms are excellent; very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is also very good, and it's only a short 5 minute walk to the main streets of Nelson (and less than a ten minute drive to the airport). Highly recommended.

Stayed here based on other TA reviews and I must stay they are spot on. The rooms are beautiful and feel luxurious, everything is brand new, the beds are very comfortable. The staff was friendly and the location was great. You're on the edge of town but really it's like a 5-7 minute walk to all the restaurants and bars... More

We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful motelier who was very happy to share his knowledge of real estate in the city with us. I am sure we will stay in touch to take advantage of his expertise. The unit was very tidy, very clean, new, and everything we could need was provided.

This was a very pleasant, comfortable stay. The room was perfect, very clean and had everything I needed. The owners are a lovely, friendly, helpful family. I would highly recommend staying here, and would definitely stay again.

We originally did not plan to drive through to Nelson so contacted this property late and got the last available room, a lovely suite with spa tub and functional kitchen. Since we really only needed one bedroom (what was showing on Agoda through TA) but they only had a two bedroom available, they said they would just charge us the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a very large studio unit (Number 201) which was tastefully decorated, roomy, comfortable and very quiet. The huge king-size bed was just right, the bathroom had a spa bath, the kitchen area had a one-drawer dishwasher and filtered drinking water. There was even a safe in the large wardrobe, which is very handy... More

Lovely property located a short 5 minute walk from restaurants and shops . Spacious 2 bedrooms . Lovely kitchen and lounge area. Would have loved to use the spa and gas fire but weather too warm and too busy going to beautiful restaurants and sights around Nelson . Great hosts who don't intrude on your stay. Do yourself a favour... More

After a disastrous night in what would be classed as a 1 rated motel and with most of Nelson booked out, we had the absolute luck in a fried finding this motel which had a cancellation. If there was a rate of 100/100 this motel would get it. We are not surprised at the awards this motel gets, because it... More

We only stayed one night but this motel was the perfect location for us as it is very easy walking distance to the centre of town. Jan was very welcoming giving us local maps and info about events happening in the town. The room was very clean and modern. Would definitely stay again.

This motel thoroughly deserves its rave reviews. We stayed here in 2011, and were delighted to return in Feb 2015. Very comfortable and stylish, it is ideally located for the town. Look no further if you are visiting Nelson.
