“Outstanding accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I stayed with my 2 teenage children in a 2 bedroom apartment for 6 nights in December 2012. We absolutely loved this motel! Our apartment (No 10) was at the back of the complex looking out over the beautiful swimming pool and large sports field/park at the back (where my son played cricket in the evenings). The accommodation was very spacious and with a lot of windows and sliding doors it is very light and bright. There is a lovely private patio with an outdoor setting which looks out over the pool. Our apartment was away from the road so we did not hear any traffic noise. The weather while we were in Nelson was hot and my children lived in the pool. There was a TV in the lounge as well as a small one in the main bedroom with Sky which my son was very happy about as he was able to watch the cricket. There was also a single bed as well as a king bed in the main bedroom which would be great if you had 3 children. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Parkside Motel and will not hesitate to come and stay again when we are in Nelson.

Room Tip: If looking for accommodation for your family (for 2 adults and up to 3 children), definitely book ro...

On the main road so best to get one of the rooms near the back if you are a light sleeper, but even near the road the noise is not too bad. The units are large and the owners go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. The pool looked very inviting but we didn't have time to try it.

Room Tip: Rooms beside the pool will be quieter.

Our units furtherest away from the road are undoubtedly the quietest however all of the units at the front of the site have been treated to minimise the impact of traffic noise. The treatment includes hush glass which provides an acoustic barrier proven to exceed that provided by double glazing and acoustic linings to the curtains. The pool is inviting and we have the heating system on. We are pleased our guests enjoyed their stay.

We had a 1 bed room suite.
This place was basically brand new.
All the facilities were excellent. The setting near the park is lovely, the pool is beautiful and the location is very convenient to local attractions.
This is the sort of place where you could stop and relax for a couple of days rather than just a one night stop-over.
Could not fault it.
Great for families and couples on self-drive holidays.

We stayed in room 14 for one night overlooking the pool and green fields and watched the sunset go down on the balcony
Had a good walk and bike ride on the nearby walkway. The pool was just starting to warmup -sat with our feet dangling-would have loved to have stayed longer in the heat of summer-what a great way to cool off! right in your own piece of paradise.- quiet and relaxing

we stayed here 3 nights and what beautiful and quiet units,the units are really modern with all facilities,1 more armchair would have helped we had turns on the 1 in the room,they are very clean,hosts are lovely,only problem was the hot water which hubby had a cold shower each morning,the electrician was called in each day but still not fixed as unsure where problem was,so will be fixed by the time we return,you get a paper each morning which lets you catch up with the news,also hubby loaded car etc and got a ring from motel when in blenheim to say all our hanging clothes were still in wardrobe so no problem all put into 1 bag and we got a courier to pick up and bring over,thanks guys see you next trip

I would like to thank Yvonne for this very positive review despite the problems we faced with the hot water. When we were advised of the problem by Yvonne we had the problem looked at by an electricician however it wasnt until we changed contractors that the probblem was finally correctly identified and resolved. We are confident now that the hot water system is now working as it is supposed to.

We had a two bedroom room which was very comfortable and large. Good sized twin bed room and master bedroom with extra bed for child number 3. Lovely big bathroom and good strong shower with nice tolietries. Lounge/kitchen entrance was comfortable with windows looking out on a pool which held no interest in the middle of winter but would be icing on the cake in summer. Lots of nice teas, good coffee and fresh milk very welcome.

The room 5gomad stayed in is our largest unit overlooking he pool and with access to the park behind the motel. This unit is our best suited to families with younger children. I'm delighted they enjoyed their stay and yes the pool, which is heated during the swimming season, is a definite bonus.
