Second visit and it lived up to our previous experience. In fact was better as they have done a lot of work upgrading the rooms- great linen, clean and tidy rooms, comfortable beds. Great hosts, really helpful and welcoming. Great location as well- easy walk into the town centre.

We arrived to check in and met Barry the hotel owner/manager who was extremely friendly and happy to help. He firstly advised that he was going to upgrade us from our queen room to a king room at no extra cost before taking us over to the room and showing us everything. Car parking for one car which is more... More

We got an online deal. The hosts Lee and Barry are absolutely lovely, rooms are impeccably clean and of very high standard. Also we ordered breakfast which was delicious! I would highly recommend this motor lodge to any one looking for a high quality affordable place to stay in Nelson.
