We first stayed in a cabin without shower, that was a mistake made by my husband, he forgot to check before booking. Then we changed to a motel room, that was pretty comfy and clean, also good value because it's just gone off the peak. The staff was helpful, the shared facilities are clean and well maintained, so we were... More

We stay in one of the motel unit and we found the room very clean, spacious and comfortable. Nice location near city center. The staff was very kind and helpful about the thing to do in the city. Awesome accomodation!!! We really recommend staying here.

My mother and I were doing a relocation campervan and only had one night to stop in Nelson sadly. I was late checking in but the man at the desk was extremely nice and gave me some good recommendations on things to do for our short stay. I'm glad I chose to stay here because we were able to walk... More

This was a very brief overnight stay in a camper site. We thought the line of trees between sites was a nice touch and added a little privacy to this city campsite. We arrived after checkin time but the staff left us details and we had no problems finding our site. It was safe and quiet and clean. The showers... More

Our campervan site was a bit cramped. We were wedged in between a tree and the kid's trampoline. But the site had some nice touches and was a bit quirky. Facilities okay but where clean. Quite a way outside the main town area was a bit of a long walk for a hot day so had to drive the van... More

Although over priced it does have some things going for it as it is clean and well managed. The kitchen and TV room are a little small, but the WiFi worked well even where being used by a few people. The pitches a compact but they are defined by trees giving some privacy, and of course the town centre is... More

Used more to RVing in Europe, USA, Canada, RSA , I find myself giving very favourable reviews to all the sites here in NZ and maybe those critical of sites such as this excellent little stop - over need to have the comparisons of your typical park in France or Italy where for the privilege of paying often significantly more...

Great place to base yourself for a quick trip to Nelson to visit the huge amount of arts and crafts gallery's etc. in the area. The studio motel was lovely and clean and the beds were comfy and warm. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It is pretty close to the city which is great but we did hire... More

Stayed in a tent for one night (44 NZD/night). Wouldn't recommended staying here: tent site is way to small, community kitchen and TV room are tiny as well. Toilettes and showers are OK but the staff was stressed and unfriendly.

I stayed here with my partner and 2 kids for 2 nights. We got the "kitchen cabin" for $90 a night. Definitely not worth the money. No where on trip advisor, the hotel website or the booking website did it mention anything about a shared bathroom. So just a heads up if your booking this room. We also had to... More
