We stayed here for one night in February while attending a wedding. It was a last minute booking and we got a great price. They also let us check in early which was great. The room had 3 beds and a small bathroom and no kitchen, but this was fine for us. We liked the small courtyard out in the... More

Good points. Spacious, reasonably clean rooms. Bad points. Dirty stairwells and balconies. Forbidding exterior. This is a large, stark building. We spent 3 nights here and it was virtually empty. Our room was pretty good although there was no kitchen sink or hotplate. There is a communal kitchen though but we only discovered this by accident from a cleaning lady.... More

Saxton Lodge is half way between Stoke & Richmond so as long as you have transport, it is handy to a lot of locations plus only a 30min drive from Motueka, with lots of markets & beaches in the vicinity. I extended my stay by a couple of days either side of my original booking & management was very accommodating... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently - a couple of days after Christmas. The host (Darryn) was very friendly and welcoming. The cleaning staff were also very friendly. We had a downstairs room facing the road. The room was spacious and we could hardly hear much from the road itself. The motel had an excellent communal kitchen and dining... More

We stayed one night in Saxton Lodge. The communal kitchen was large and well stocked and the motel very handy to the Richmond mall. Friendly and efficient check in and check out. The room was huge and the beds comfortable. The bathroom could have done with a more thorough clean (toothpaste marks etc visible on the bathroom vanity and mirror)... More

Pleasant/Professional hosts. Stayed three nights in a unit on the Saxton Rd side of the complex - no traffic noise & a spacious unit. The rate was very reasonable. Communal kitchen well stocked - white goods are due for a deep clean but other than that the kitchen area was of a good standard. Was a little disappointed that a... More

We met my folks in Nelson for a couple of nights and Dad booked us in Saxton Lodge. My sister & I literally chanced upon the hotel before needing to pull up a map. Huge amount of parking (so many other hotels/motels have one park per room). Iron & board, hair-dryer, coffee & tea making facilities in the room. We... More
