I travel to Nelson every four weeks on business and always stay at a different motel in the central city. This time almost all accommodation was taken up by the National Conference in town. After looking on the Internet I found The Boutique Motel. I have to say I was quite impressed with the price, service, warmth and cleanliness of... More

This was the cleanest and most well appointed motel we have ever stayed with. We stayed in one of the two bedroom units. The rooms were quiet and spacious. Hosts were very welcoming. We will definitely be back! Thank you.

I have stayed here three times on business in this area and have never had the quality of service and surroundings for this price. Rooms are small, but it feels very European, which I like, and scrupulously clean. Free internet, good fittings, warm and comfortable what else could you want?

Dear dubois-wood, Many thanks for your lovely review on Trip Advisor regarding your last stay with us. It is much appreciated. One of the benefits of being a small property is that we get to meet all our guests personally (unless we have managed to sneak a break away in) & this allows us to interact with many people.

Great hotel, one downfall in my opinion would be the location quite inland in stoke, Nelson if that's where you want to be great, all though it was roughly a 10 minute drive to nelson CBD. Apart from that the 'motel' was hotel quality just without the Restaurant and Bar. Price is very reasonable for level of quality The pictures... More

This is actually some way from Nelson ie in Stoke so best for those with cars if you want to be close to city. Stoke has nice parks also supermarket pubs etc. Although rooms small they're modern and comfortable. Friendly staff. T

Dear Cordt, Thank you for your review regarding your stay with us at the Boutique Motel. Stoke is a suburb of Nelson. An approximate 10 -15 minute drive away from the city centre.

Readers of Trip Advisor, The 5Griswalds were clients of a 3rd party internet booking site.

The owners were friendly and helpful, the room was really well maintained, clean and with nice decor and it is set well back from the busy road. Definitely a boutique motel. The only downsides is that the motel is a long way from Nelson CBD and the rooms are small.
