We stayed one night in Nelson, and the I-sites ( which we used every day and also loved) guided us to the Ascot Lodge. Of our 20 nights in New Zealand motels on both islands, this was our favorite motel by far.
Lynn and Stephan are such friendly, gracoius hosts. Besides running a fabulous motel, they were also extremely helpful as travel guides with great recommendations for the rest of our tour of the South Island.
Ascot Lodge was spotlessly clean and extremelhy comfortable, so much so that we wished we were staying multiple nights. Extra touches like current magazines, a nice play to sit outside, and a couple of cookies waiting for us made us feel so cared for. There's also a really lovely garden in back to enjoy.
Lynn and Stephan are such modest but conscientous recyclers that they caused us re-examine our own recycling efforts when we returned home. ( Be sure to read the in-room information book for more insight into who they are.)
Lynn and Stephan are just delightful people, and it shows in what a great experience we had for that one night. We've already recommended Ascot Lodge to friends in Wellington who frequently visit Nelson area.
