I have stayed here before. This time had a studio unit upstairs. Wonderful spot being private and a great view and an avocado tree freely accessible from the deck. However the designer or architect has not stayed here. Too small with no room for any luggage. Choose a one bedroom if you can. Great hosts and very acommodating letting us... More

The hotel was on a very busy arterial road and very noisy indeed. We stayed in a two bedroomed apartment but the twin bedded room was very small, rather a challenge to fit our luggage in. The staff however, were friendly and helpful. There was plenty of tourist info in reception and an excellent and very useful map of the... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Large unit with lovely outlook from sitting room. Really comfy bed..I had a wonderful sleep. Room was well stocked with everything you might need. Great water pressure in the shower in a spacious bathroom. Would definitely stop here again.

The staff are wonderfully helpful and friendly. It was really cold during my stay and the room heater was often on ready for my late return from work, which was must appreciated. Nice touches such as make-up remover, heated towel rail, filter coffee, dvd, a good range of kitchen utensils and microwave bowls. A little road noise but not enough... More

Have seen some comments as to road noise, perhaps their windows weren't shut as I have stayed here quite a few times and never noticed it. Have found all rooms that I have stayed in here to be spotless and welcoming and have no need or intention of staying elsewhere when in Nelson. The beds, showers and baths (for those... More

Unfortunately in all our years of travel this is the first time we have left a motel earlier than arranged.The main problem, the bed was old, tired, sagging (much like us after our first night). Turning off water suddenly in bathroom produced a very loud and scary machine gun noise, managed to fix each time by rushing to kitchen and... More

We stayed three days (before and after completing the Abel Tasman walk). The place was very adequate and the hostess could not do enough for us. The only negative was the noise made by the lumber carrying trucks that were going by all the the time.

Great location and nice maintained place to stay for two days in Nelson. Enjoying the spa bath and private back yard for children. It's probably a new wave in South Island, they are no longer ironing the sheets.

We stayed at The Best Western Tuscany Gardens in Nelson on October 28th. Our studio room was well appointed and spacious and we had a nice little patio with a table and chairs. The check in was efficient and we utilized the kitchen facilities for dinner. Afterwards we walked down to the beach and with the rain front moving out... More

This was a good middle of the road motel, possibly a little overpriced as it is starting to get a little tired. Little things like cobwebs in every corner of the room, heavy dust on top of the headboard and scuff marks on the walls that could easily be removed with a quick wipe! Lady on reception was absolutely lovely... More
