I have stayed at Fountain Resort motel on many occasions now. Once you experience the hospitality of this family run business, you will never want to move out! Lovely facility including pool, gym full playground. True blue kiwi hospitality, clean, well maintained and private. Nothing is to much trouble for this team.

We had a 3 day stop at Nelson with Ngaire & Tony. This family was only too helpful in their endeavour to help us out. They recommended Speight's ale house and boy was the meal good. The beer was even better they picked you up and dropped you back. Thanks guys for all your help and recommendation.

We stayed here for 2 nights after a long drive from Greymouth. This motel served all our needs (except maybe the suburb is a bit down market). The owners were very, very helpful and the rooms were good. I love the NZ standard of having a kitchen in a motel Room. Only a few minutes form town - and what... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay in Nelson and our motel. Tahuna is a great beachside suburb and can only improve once we have a supermarket etc. The location is great as you say.

Owners very friend ly and helpful, even putting an extra bed in our unit to accommodate our family.Room exceptionally clean and full kitchen (although we didn't use it).

Thank you Anita for your lovely review of your stay while in Nelson. Glad you children loved the flying fox, and pleased you enjoyed Nelsons wonderful beach.

Very clean, thoughtfully well equipped units (even a night light built into the wall), comfortable beds. Great playground which the kids loved, lovely solar heated pool, handy laundry facilities. Good and quiet location, nice walk to the beach. Ngaire and Tony thank you for your attentive hospitality. We loved our stay here and hope to return!

Stayed here for only one night but would definitely stay here again. Situated in a quite area but we'll within reach of amenities. Spacious and clean units and a comfortable bed there was nothing more we could ask for. Friendly staff on check in and check out. Happy to recommend as a good place to stay.

While the location is good in terms of distance to the airport and beach, the downside is that you are under the flight path of the runway approach. Luckily, the jets are small ones and aren't too noisy. We stayed in a two bedroom unit (unit 1), which was clean, neat and tidy. In fact, the beds were were very... More

Thank you Steve for staying at our property and taking the time to review it.

We stayed here for 2 nights in August on our NZ tour , as we were getting into the Asure loyalty programme. This motel was well up to expectations, and we weren't even disturbed on the second night when several girl's sports teams stayed. It is family friendly, with a pool and kid's play area, although we didn't need this.... More

We wanted a motel close to the airport with a comfy bed and nice shower and tv to watch the all blacks beat australia!! This motel provided all those things with fabulous hosts who even drove us to the airport at 7am to save us getting a taxi, Thanks heaps!!-plus a nice takeaway within walking distance for a fish supper.

this motel was advertised on wotif as being pet friendly however on arrival I was told this is no longer the case. They did however accept us and our small dog and the room was clean and comfortable and the bed good. It had recently been renovated. The management were helpful and friendly.

Thanks Clare for writing your review of the property. We are sorry you were mislead with info on pet-friendlyness. However I will continue to try to get that corrected by Wotif and any others that have not removed it. Unfortunately not all dog owners are as considerate as yourselves, so thank you for that.
