We loved our stay at the Bay Crest. It is the nicest place we have stayed so far in New Zealand! The rooms are amazing and affordable and everyone on staff was so warm and welcoming! We only planned on one night but had to stay 2 nights because it was so nice. The in room jacuzzis are also amazing!

Very kind and helping owner; clean and modern room with nice attention to detail; unlimited free wi-fi. Sometimes a plane flies over but not at Night and therefore quiet when it matters. Good location close to Nelson CBD and about three quarters of an hour away from Abel Tasman National Park.

We enjoyed our very clean, well located, well appointed motel stay at the Bay Crest in Nelson. It is close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The owners are very service oriented and friendly. We do not hesitate to recommend it.

Immaculately kept units, very comfortable & clean. Quiet surroundings away from busy / noisy roads. Owners are so friendly, very obliging and helpful, great with local knowledge and advice. Continental breakfast is substantial & very satisfying. Owners certainly take pride in their motel. Definitely will return when next in Nelson.
