We stayed over the holidays. As others have said, the motel is in a good position in a quiet street but near town. The units are basic but clean. The main problem however is the plumbing, the shower and washbasin look like relics from the 1970s, simply not good enough nowadays. We did see some of the ants others mention,... More

Very happy with our stay so far (still here as I write this). As some have said its not modern looking but it's tidy and our unit is in very good condition. It has new carpet and a comfortable bed. The kids beds are memory foam and very comfy. The pools has been great fun and the manager is very... More

This motel is in need of repairs has a real 1970s look, it was very tired and the bed was saggy, it was clean but had ants in the kitchen and no where to put your suitcases. It also had paper thin walls and next door were night owls so we slept badly.no extras like shampoo etc. We only had... More

We stayed here for two nights. The complex is in urgent need of refurbishment, appeared untouched since the 1970's. Ants were crawling around the edge of the living room walls, as well as carpet and furnishings. If any food was left out ants immediately were crawling over it. On check in, I requested a complimentary newspaper, this was never delivered,... More

I stayed here as I know nelson well and all the other main hotels are on the busy main rd but as they say 'near the beach'. Dudley the owner was kind and helpful and runs an affordable clean motel. During my swim in the pool I could have been in Samoa. The unit wasa a good size and at... More

A generally nice site with a small pool in the centre. The rooms are equipped with everything that is necessary, but also everything (with exception of the modern and large TV) was more or less old and need to be replace. The bed was'nt comfortable and has a hollow in the middle so that there was no good sleep possible.... More

The complex is reasonably large, so my review relates only to a small block of what is offered. The single story units are made of concrete block with no attempt to hide this internally. Decor therefore was painted concrete block both internally and externally. Not particularly attractive. Worse still, however, is that such units are notoriously difficult to heat and... More

Nice big unit - very good value for money. Clean, with everything you could want whether staying just 1 night or a week or more. Hosts were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Would recommend this motel to anyone.

We found this place by accident in Nelson. Stopped in another place that was booked up and was referred. These beautiful chalets are nestled in a quiet neighborhood. We stayed in a two story structure which featured bevelled glass on the front door and cool wrought iron on the winding staircase heading upstairs. Owner apologized for the age of the... More

Milton Chalet has older style units which are kept spotlessly clean. A quiet setting close to the town centre. Great friendly service with good local information. We were made very welcome.
