We enjoyed 5 nights in the Director Suite on the Top story which offers an excellent view of the beach reserve that it overlooks. This suite has both a spa bath and sauna and provide an excellent way to relax after an energetic day out. If offers guests a free continental breakfast which has a good range of healthy yet... More

Stayed here whilst doing a tour with top deck. Rooms were excellent. Beds were comfy bathroom was clean and showers were excellent. Spits about a 30 minute walk into Nelson but there's busses that you can catch, there's also a KFC and a few restaurants near by if you don't want to cook yourselkpf. There's a big social area that... More

Great central location close to the beach, just off the main street and with a large park immediately in front of it. I must say these guys have amongst the best customer service I have ever experienced anywhere. The staff are friendly, welcoming and polite. The Hotel is well appointed and the only thing stopping me from giving it 5... More

We arrived late afternoon, took our luggage upstairs to our room, changed and WALKED to the beach. Perfect end to a long day. Suggestions were given for close places to eat and she also made our reservation for our "Ecotour" It felt more like a B&B with the care given. We only stayed 2 nights but will go back next... More

Our mountain view room actually had a view of a hill with houses! Closer still was a scaffold yard where they start throwing scaffold on to lorries at 07:00, followed by calor gas deliveries to the pub next door to the yard at 07:15 and then guest trundling cases and car doors slamming at 07:30. However, you'll want to be... More

A nice location with a comfy bed and excellent shower, no room for suitcases so we kept one in the bathroom. We had a mountain view room, no Mt just a hill with housing overlooking the back of a pub and a scaffolding business, also noisy from the main road, should have spent the extra and got an ocean view...

We stayed here for 1 night and used it because it was close to the airport (about 5 minute drive) it was a long walk to the town centre so I wouldn't recommend if you were staying in Nelson for that. The room itself was quite basic but we had nothing to complain about. The staff were friendly. The breakfast... More
