but there were still a few problems. I checked in at 7pm, the temperature was 4 degrees and the window in my room was open! I closed it and didn't think further. But coming back to the room after dinner it was still 4 degrees. I had to get the lovely receptionist to help me turn on the heat pump,... More

Reception staff very helpful with directions and suggestions for things to do in Nelson. For the fitness minded they have an arrangement with an excellent nearby 24 hour gym at a very... More

Upon entering lobby, I questioned the receptionist about the quality and condition of the rooms. I don't think my own family would have made the effort as much as this friendly receptionist did to me showing me the different options room by room with personal attention. We were very pleased with the cleanliness and size of our rooms. 2 minute... More

Had a great stay and didn't want to leave. Located near the city centre next to the river. Had a balcony by the river which we used for breakfast. Spa bath was a real luxury. Clean and very comfortable.

We chose a riverside room on the first floor which was very pleasant. Our room had a power shower, sofa bed, table/2 chairs and balcony overlooking the river. The room was a... More

everything about this place is pretty spot on, it is very nice and very affordable, extremely good value. My only quibble, and it is a small complaint at worst, was the resturant which is beautifully appointed was to my mind a little overpriced, we ate elsewhere. Regardless of that l would still rate it an excellent place to be, and... More

Good check-in from friendly receptionist. Doors to hallway to room difficult to handle with luggage. Automatic doors would be great. Room was comfortable, however not soundproof. Woke early to an alarm in next room, a couple having a conversation, then took a shower, then another conversation, than another shower!
