Lovely motel not too far from the CBD and off the main drag. Very friendly and helpful reception. Room was cosy, large enough for comfortable stay. King size bed. 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!) Just to point out to others looking for beach location etc, we are NOT 1 km from the beach! It is virtually over the road... More

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.

Great place to stay close to the beach, food and not far from Tasman national park. Being our first time in New Zealand the staff were really helpful and knowledgeable in everything we wanted to do. Highly recommend

We had a family reunion in Nelson. 16 of us came from Australia. From the very first contact Ngaire was fantastic, friendly and efficient to deal with.

We booked trhough an online booking engine but there was an error and the room was not available. Less than 30 minutes later we received a call to apologise about the mix up (not that it was Asure's fault) and recommend a nice available motel nearby. You can't ask for better service that that.
