The hotel is very well run with consistent management (I am a repeat guest) and an extremely responsive and pleasant front desk. Breakfast is excellent - cold buffet (local preserves, honey) with hot available... More

Fantastic rooms, very clean. The food in the restaurant (The Tides) is absolutely divine and the staff are so attentive and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended. A side note for the ladies, the moisturiser supplied in the bathroom is the best in NZ 😊

This was an excellent place to stay, the room was clean and tidy and exactly as advertised, including a balcony overlooking the river. The evening meal was delicious, one of the best I have had in a restaurant, and the staff were lovely. The breakfast crew were a disappointment, they were not welcoming at all, nor were they approachable. The... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It is well located on the fringe of the town centre. It is very professionally run, the staff are very friendly and the rooms well appointed. I stayed for one night in Room 62, at the top of the stairs by reception. Unfortunately it didn't look out onto the river but it was... More

If you are looking for accommodation in Nelson - Look No Further. This is, without a doubt, the best option in town.

Under floor heating in the bathroom -What a Bonus!!! and amazing water... More

We so appreciate your fabulous feedback, and your time in placing this online. You are absolutely right, being by the water is nice in any season, and the location here is ideal for making the most of Nelson's attractions. I have to say the heated bathroom floors are a real treat, especially mornings like today - with a 2degree start,... More
