Me and my 2 kids have stayed here a couple of times in the family unit. Is stylee & clean, with comfortable beds & lots of space for everyone to not be on top of each other. Owners and staff were really friendly and helpful & it was really easy to get to different places from. Highly recommend

Well, the title probably says it all, we had a friendly welcome - local milk provided, the two bedroom apartment was spotlessly clean, modern and tastefully decorated. I loved the fact that they had a surround sound sound media system (although my wife didn't care so much!). We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely use this motel again... More

There was a muck up on the booking dates from booking.com, which was very distressing. However, Chris from the Gladstone Motel was very understanding and helpful. Thank you Chris for being so accommodating. Regards Rohan.

Nothing was mentioned at the time with regard to the cancellation policy (of... More

Hi Jude, Our cancellation policy is clearly spelt out in your reservation confirmation, on our website and on our partner websites. We went to extraordinary lengths to assist you even dropping our room rate to try and let the room you cancelled. We were unable to do this and therefore your room charge was not refunded.

I've stayed at this motel a number of times in the last 4 months. The unit is always immaculate and the welcome's always friendly. Very close to town! But what impressed me most was that these people genuinely care about their guests. I became ill during my last visit and the motel manager noticed that I hadn't left my unit... More

FANTASTIC motel recently rebuilt so good as new. Disabled-friendly bathroom, AMAZING kitchen, very friendly owners. Walking distance (with walker) to largest shopping Mall in South Island and five minute drive to brilliant Aquatic Centre. Close to the wine estates and a tidal sea pool on Rabbit Island (check the tides). Good restaurants in Richmond and Nelson. Sky with news channels.... More

Excellent stay. Great 2 bedroom family unit. Really nice and helpful hosts. Little touches like fresh milk are appreciated. Like the fact there is a dishwasher in the unit. Laundry easy to use. Beds comfortable and rooms large. Easy parking.

This was a nice motel for our quick getaway. Quite close to some of the attractions like Tahuna Beach and WOW & Classic Car Museum. Walking distance to the Richmond Mall and Richmond town centre. Room was serviced daily. The only small complaint we have was the bed was a little hard for our liking, but I guess you can't... More
