This motel was great! Our room was clean and tidy, and the family who ran the motel were fantastic - they whipped up a great breakfast for us, and even helped us find things to do on the days we were in Nelson. It's within walking distance to the heart of town, and just a short drive from some great... More

We had the separate cottage and it was wonderful. Vintage and old fashioned but smart, clean and with a well appointed kitchen and every gadget required including a wide screen TV, sky and a box of DVDs for rainy days. Very quiet with off road parking, a lovely little home. We would definitely recommend it and would stay again.

I didnt actually make it to Nelson to stay here but I cancelled the accommodation giving 6 days notice after changing my travel plans. I paid upfront through Jasons Travel NZ. I expected a cancellation fee but the proprietor refused to refund any of my $180 for 1 nights stay because I didnt have a 'good enough reason'. I think... More

Chris F, Manager at Riverlodge Motel Apartments, responded to this review

It is unfortunate this person did not contact us directly about his need to cancel as we are generally supportive of people who talk to us and explain why they are unable to meet their contractual obligations. In this instance, the booking for a January date was made in November and the booking system used makes it impossible to click... More

Although the loction might be central and therefore tempting, be warned the price is high for what you get. We were put in an annex to the rear, although we didn't reserve this when we booked on the web. This one room studio was cramped and the decor and furniture had seen better days. We heard every word our neighbours... More

Stayed at the Riverlodge for 2 nights as part of our 3 week New Zealand experience. Our room was toward the back of the complex, upstairs....sorry, don't remember the room number. Very comfortable bed, well appointed and roomy room, do-it-yourself amenities (kettle, toaster, mini-fridge, utensils etc.) tucked away out of site but still easily accessible. Excellent laundry facilities. Thought we... More

The accommodation was all fine, good clean room, great value, etc. We left behind the charger for my laptop and when we rang, they were so helpful and posted it to our niece's house for us. They couldn't have been more helpful. We are so grateful.

We only spend one night in Nelson so this motel did the job for us. It wasn't difficult to find and the location was good for walking into the centre - nowhere is really very far in Nelson. The apartment was spacious, although I wouldn't have arranged the furniture in the same way - as it was, there was no... More

We stayed here on 2nd Feb and paid $115 for a nice studio room. The owner was very pleasant and obviously loves Nelson ( the town not the sailor ! ). The studio room was very clean with a nice kitchen area and large bathroom, although there was some plumbing noise, possibly from the laundry downstairs. The outside seating on... More

I booked into the motel because it looked good on the internet and it was close to the CBD. Big Mistake! The location was good although a smell from the tidal river wafted through when the tide was out. But, that wasn't the only bad smell. The room that my two girls had was quite smelly and the whole place... More
