I was in Nelson for a business trip and this motel ticked all the boxes as it was close to the conference venue. Pauline was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and warm. I spoke to some other guests who were staying there due to the school holidays and they too were happy with their stay.

We enjoyed eleven nights at the Abelia Motor Lodge. The accessible facilities were perfect, right from getting out of the car to using the bathroom facilities. A lovely clean and spacious unit that can be rearranged to suit wheelchair and non wheelchair users. Our hosts were warm and friendly. While the accommodation is on a busy road, it is set... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Abelia Lodge, very friendly staff, comfortable bed, small kitchenette in the room, large bathroom, despite proximity to road it was not noisy, birds singing in the back was a plus, even had a view of the mountains. Free and fast Wifi, also parking... Overall very good stay for us with our 2 year old daughter.... More

My friend and I picked the Abelia as it was on the right side of the road to get all the afternoon sun. We asked to inspect a room and the lady was more than happy to split the king into 2 singles. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean, large bathroom, everything was in working order... More
