This property started with a smile of welcome and then a yes we have a room. Perfect room for just the right price. Cosy, clean, comfortable. Close to Tahunanui beach. Easy drive in to Nelson city. Quiet.

We stayed one night during Christmas break. Upon arriving I went into the office only to stand there waiting for 10 minutes and no sign or bell to ring for service. I hunted a lady down in the kitchen prep area and she was eating. No apology given. I paid for a room and left. We found our room boiling... More

As a new Zealander and a past tourist operator I appreciate the kiwi friendliness, I want them to work for my return, I have stayed there a few years ago. The receptionist was genuine in her welcome. I appreciate the closeness of various restaurants, it was convenient to have choices within walking distace

Room was tidy and neat when we arrived, very spacious. The only downfall was the really soft single bed in the room. Very uncomfortable night sleep on this bed. The other bed was a king bed and was comfortable. Staff were lovely when we checked in.

Overall location very good, near all services but hot water pressure terrible. Could not have good shower due to the water. Breakfast very good, room tidy and parking no issue. The bar out the front (smugglers) have good meals.

We booked in on the day of travel choosing from the AA accommodation book and looking from the outside. Taking off the top cover of the bed after checking in I discovered a bad stain on the duvet! The linen also at first glance looked as though it had not been changed as they were not ironed. Because of this... More

We stayed here for one night in early January and booked this motel because of its proximity to the beach, cafes etc and because it had a pool. On arrival, we were lucky to be able to book into our room straightaway because it had been vacant the night before. Our room was perfectly adequate but the bed cover needed... More
