“My home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I'm a frequent traveller for work and always enjoy staying at the Saxton Lodge. My sister frequents this place alot with her sports affilliated job so she recommended it to me.
I speak more highly of the wonderful, friendly hosts- and they are the mian reason for my return visits. Very clean and spacious rooms. Fantastically comfy beds and hot, great pressured showers. Excellent value for money
There is a huge car parking area. The site itself is very quiet and very minimal (if any) road noise. They do have tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the communal kitchen supplies anything else you may require.
I would certainly recommend this place for group/family get to gethers, conferences or like myself, someone wanting a nice, quite and safe place to stay.
I look forward to my next trip :-)

Stayed 4 nights and was most impressed with the service - Staff very friendly and obliging , rooms very spacious and cleaned daily, very clean communal kitchen, shuttle free of charge to and from airport - overall a very pleasant experience and would recommend the Saxton Lodge to any travellers.

Pleasant/Professional hosts. Stayed three nights in a unit on the Saxton Rd side of the complex - no traffic noise & a spacious unit. The rate was very reasonable. Communal kitchen well stocked - white goods are due for a deep clean but other than that the kitchen area was of a good standard. Was a little disappointed that a request for daily vacuming was confirmed however never happened. Overall a very pleasant stay.. Thanks

We met my folks in Nelson for a couple of nights and Dad booked us in Saxton Lodge. My sister & I literally chanced upon the hotel before needing to pull up a map. Huge amount of parking (so many other hotels/motels have one park per room). Iron & board, hair-dryer, coffee & tea making facilities in the room. We expected there to be a toaster etc and when there wasn't one we thought "oh - more like a hotel than motel then". Then Dad went for a walk & found the communal kitchen for his toast in the morning. Great idea. The rooms are VERY spacious - four of us in one room & not squashed. The rooms were very clean and had a wee courtyard (several chairs missing from outside rooms though). Some road noise, but did not keep me awake at all and the bed was good quality.

I stayed at Saxton Lodge for one night and really liked it. The linen is spotlessly clean and the furnishing make you feel like you are in a luxury lodge. The room was huge and about the size of my studio/bed-sit apartment when I lived in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Really liked the huge shower and private balcony facing the sunset. It is a bit out of town, but central to driving to town, beach etc. Ample parking and easy to find. Nice quiet neighbourhood (no bars!) so a good quiet place to sleep.

Room Tip: Upstairs has no lift but the have balconies to sit outside.

We've stayed at Saxton Lodge several times on overnight trips to Nelson. Rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable; service is great. There's a bit of traffic noise sometimes but not enough to prevent a good night's sleep. Location between Nelson and Richmond suits us perfectly as we always have the car and we find Richmond convenient and well-serviced.
