“Overall excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

New owners are superb providing outstanding service (even do your dishes each day).
Motel is adjacent to camping ground which was great for me with family staying there. There is a small swimming pool which is ideal for young children.
I'm booked for another holiday next year.

We stayed in the Arcadia motel over the New Years period 2010 - 2011. When we arrived the hosts were very friendly and helpful, telling us about the Nelson area and where the most popular places to go are. Our room had a king bed, new lcd tv, dvd player, full oven and fridge. All the appliances were modern. The pool and barbeque area were great, would definitely recommend this motel to everyone.

The service was great. Very friendly and efficient. Told us everything we needed to know like how to get to different places, decent places to eat on different budgets and which activities were nearby.
The rooms were very spacious with good sized beds, clean sheets and dishes and a good tv and DVD player for use during our down time.
The location was extremely good. Only a two minute walk to the beach and restaurants. The motel also had a pool which was a bonus. It is solar heated and perfect for after the beach!
The King-sized bed, pool and friendly efficient service was my favourite part of my experience here. Not a bad word to say. They even gave us a spare key at no extra charge when it was needed. I will definitely return to stay when I go back to Nelson.
