I specifically chose this hotel for the "hot tub" listed in the description on the choice hotels website. "Guests of this Nelson, New Zealand hotel can enjoy on-site features like a free weekday newspaper, an outdoor pool, sauna, hot tub, public computer with Internet access and meeting rooms.". Me along with the 2 other guests were backpacking for the previous... More

So nice to find an older establishment that is so clean, we were very happy with the room which was inexpensive had 2 queen size beds coffee and tea facilities etc. Because the property is so large it would be a great place for a reunion or large gathering. Only a 5 minute walk to town and incudes restaurant, swimming... More

Open address a great size. Bedrooms tight. Modern and clean rooms. No internet a real deficiency. Room servicing just adequate. You can tell receptionist was not owner as generally the customer service IN NZ is excellent but this was just ok. Same for room service.

Generally tidy and maintained to a good standard. The was no "do not disturb" sign for the door, this meant that the room got serviced every day even if not wanted. The ground floor has noise from other guests coming and going, generally a pleasant stay.

Ok, this place doesn't offer anything luxurious but it is clean, the service is friendly and it's in a good location. The staff were friendly and helpful. I got what I paid for so I have no complaints about the room. On the downside, the breakfast was awful and their coffee has the distinction of the worst I've had in... More

Now I love Nelson and have stayed in some fabulous places (think Baywicks and Shelbourne Villas). Sadly, on this trip, my work booked and paid for this place (not that they can have paid much judging by it). There is nothing specifically wrong with it. It's just tired and depressing. The room I had was up some stairs. There is... More

Excellent lounge, kitchen area and even though there were 10 of us we felt there was plenty of room. Only conplaint was that there was no easy access... More

The room was clean and the bed was ok but the service was shocking. We had a ground floor room that had a note saying we had to run the basin tap for at least 4 minutes before having a shower as the tank was at the other end of the building. This was right alongside the note that said... More

Clean modern spacious room & bathroom. Nice & quiet Our room was upstairs (no lift) so may pay to check when booking if stairs would be inconenient for you. Location is not withing walking distance to Nelson city which didn't bother us as we had a car.
