Nelson - my favourite town in New Zealand's South Island and this could be my favourite motel. We stayed here eight years ago and loved it and stayed here for one night in April and loved it even more! It's run by a charming couple from Serbia who have lived in Nelson for well over 20 years and they certainly... More

This is a treasure just outside the hustle and congestion of the Nelson core. It is a quick easy 5 minute drive into the city. And it is a short walk to the beach. Tudor Lodge is owner operated. They are a congenial warm friendly couple who ensure their guests are well treated. The unit was spacious and comfortable. Air... More

We had a great stay! Very nice and accommodating owners! Lots of room to move about! Affordable prices on rooms!! Helped with printing out our ferry details!! Nice stay between Abel Tasman and catching the ferry! Close to highway but minimal noise at night! Slept well!

Had another stay in Nelson, this time for business, and I wouldn't go anywhere else but Tudor Lodge. Apart from the great hospitality, the rooms and motel area itself are so comfortable that it makes a business trip feel like a holiday. Again, new furnishing and equipment added since my last stay. Well done!

I have been staying at Tudor Lodge for the past few years when I'm in Nelson on business, about 6 times a year. The hosts are wonderful,very helpful and kind. I love the new Sky 50+ channels as I can watch whatever I would at home. Others have commented on road noise but I don't really notice it. Immaculately clean... More

We had a great stay at this lovely motel in Nelson. We were welcomed by the two friendly hosts of this motel and they were very helpful. It was only a ten minute walk to the beach where we spent a couple of perfect summer days. The rooms were very clean, had modern features (such as HD tv's) and were... More

Bravo Tudor Lodge. Every time we come back you have something new to offer. This time you have surprised us with over 50 TV channels, and your entertainment features, as a whole, are just what we need to unwind after a busy day. Great stay and will be seeing you again shortly.

Having stayed in motels 8 years ago when we visited NZ and now, the motels dont seem to have 'improved' and switches and beddings are all looking tired. The location was good but a little far away. We were only here for a night so it was a comfortable stay. Nothing special but nothing that bad either.

The unit was clean, with reasonably spacious rooms. there were sufficient cooking gear in the kitchen and the rooms had lovely warm electric blankets. Also pretty convenient to Nelson CBD Rooms were in slightly rough condition with holes in the walls not yet repaired.

We stayed here as a group for the masters games. What lovely friendly staff. Would definitely be back again. Only problem was the road noise if staying in front unit. Also found unit a bit damp and musty. Overall nice place though.
