3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Was a nice quiet location, a bit far from town if walking, however only 10 minute walk to beach and water park. Clean and tidy with a small kitchen (with strict instructions not to cook any curry dishes) and a good children's playground (for young kids). Staff were very friendly. The gym was disappointing.

Thank you Craig for taking the time to review our property and thank you for your nice comments. We are pleased to offer full kitchens and we consider them spacious by motel standards, especially in our two bedroom units. You are correct, we do ask guests not to cook "odorous" foods as these can take the room out of service... More

Had a great play area with various playground equipment & pool in back area which was great for kids to play. Rooms were well presented, cooking facilities and outside area for a coffee. Out of Nelson (about 15 mins) but close to shops and coast. The staff were very helpful to us, as we needed to get something shipped from... More

We live in Golden Bay and stayed the night in Nelson in order to catch our early plane. Not only did they look after our car for the 2 weeks we were away but they also dropped us off at the airport and picked us uup....all this for no extra charge. Cheers Ngaire and Tony, we will definitely be back.

Table and chairs and a comfortable single seat as well. Good kitchen with everything you will need. Large bathroom. Good shower. Parking outside your door. Swimming pool, conference room and gym....

We had a lovely and spacious room that was spotlessly clean. The well equipped kitchen enabled us to prepare meals as we wished. The swimming pool was a welcome treat at the end of the day, though rather too shallow for swimming at one end. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. the only downside was the close proximity of the... More

Thank you Annie for taking time to review our property during you summer stay. Great to hear you enjoyed staying with us and yes, I agree with you, the car parking in front of the unit does limit your outdoor space a little. BIG property, lots of room on site so it could have been done differently from the outset.... More

We stayed here with our 2 young children in one of the 2 bedroom units for 4 nights. It was of a reasonable size and clearly renovated quite recently. There was a king size bed in one room, and two single beds in the other. There was a separate kitchen with sufficient space to cook in, and a lounge/dining area... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property and for your positive comments. The playground is definitely a big plus for families, 1/4 acre paradise for kids. (Most don't have a flying fox!)

Very friendly and efficient owners of this pleasant complex near to Nelson. Rooms are a good size with decent facilities, clean and well maintained. Quiet location that may need a little help from satnav to find, it is just off the main highway 6.
