Nicky is a friendly and caring host and everything is spotless in the room, albeit a bit cramped with 2 suitcases. Great to have use of free bikes too as there are a number of designated bicycle routes totally car-free on the doorstep. Easy 10 minute drive in to Nelson.

free Wifi welcome, small room and shower, and replacement tea and coffee was lacking, but ok stay. Thought it was a bit pricey for stoke at $140 a night and can get much bigger motel in Nelson with bath and balcony

Good shower in the wet room. Comfortable bed, but we would have preferred a duvet, rather than blankets. Nicely decorated with quality fittings. Very friendly host. Not a good outside seating area, but it is in a city. It was difficult to watch the TV from the sofa, as it was mounted above the door. We were very impressed with... More

The Boutique was a pleasant place to stay, the approach was welcoming with lots of beautiful well kept plants. We found the owner a little off putting at first (used my credit card to book but my husbands name she did a bit of a rant) but after that we found her very friendly and helpful.

The Boutique Motel is perfect in every way. The hosts are the most friendly, helpful kiwis you are likely to find anywhere. The location is very good, not far from the airport and close to the supermarket, pharmacy, bakery and convenience store etc. The facilities are fantastic, comfortable beds and pillows, nice bedding, immaculately clean everything. There are lots of... More

The owners were very friendly and give us excellent advice. They recommended an excellent restaurant - The Squires (about 2 minutes by foot from the hotel) and really not expensive.
