We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. When we arrived it was a little bit like stepping back in time, we were already sending our families photos before we had even opened the door to our room! It was very unique and authentic, a lovely little place of its own and reasonably priced as well.

We enjoyed our stay. The terrace rooms were great for the family. The restaurant had great food and the location is beautiful. The staff were helpful and friendly. The only downside was they didn't give any recognition of our Platinum Accor status but forgivable in this instance due to the great value price we paid.

Booked this place because I am often amused by kitsch but actually t was rather charming. Constructed with slavish devotion to the English country mews, it's a perfectly nice place to stay when you arrive at airport late and want to travel west in the morning so you don't miss the views. Town is three kms away. Very nice restaurants... More

Hi Gollyman, I'm glad you enjoyed our cute hotel - it certainly has character and charm. I think Nelson and this region deserves a place like the Grand Mercure Monaco - it just fits in so well. Imagine our little village setting as the venue for your daughters wedding! It's smashing. Anyway, I hope you had a great trip further... More

We only used the accommodation not the restaurant, as we had our meals elsewhere. Our room was beautifully decorated with a vintage flavour. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We would use this hotel again. The ensuite bathroom was spacious and well appointed. The room was warm and cosy which was comforting in the middle of winter. Our floor... More

Located in a peaceful seaside Nelson suburb near the airport (20 minutes walk along a scenic walkway).The room was quiet, clean, spacious and had a pleasant sea view (tidal inlet) and mountains in the distance. (Apartments are situated further back on the property village style). Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a fresh modern feel also with the... More

My wife, two boys and I stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages and thought it was fantastic. Cosy fireplace and comfortable beds. Lots of room and everything you could possibly need. The grounds are well maintained and the boys played in the "Village Green" with a ball until they realised that bare feet on winter grass was quite... More

At first sight this place is so cute. The set up is perfect to feel like you've escaped. The rooms are warm and comfortable. We upgraded to the suit, 2 stories, fire place, bath. It was well worth the money and it's not expensive at all. The reception was fantastic and so helpful, she walked me through the 2 rooms... More

Had a stay of two nights and found the rooms really nice with with old style but great furniture. Great shower facilities. The jug and coffee items in the corner did not really fit as clothes hangers directly above would not allow clothes to hang and use the hot water jug/kettle. It is a unique style hotel rather quirky.

Very close to the airport in a very good location. The premise is well laid out, lots of parking and everything is clearly sign posted. Stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The rooms are very spacious, with living space downstairs, including full kitchen facilities. Bedrooms upstairs. Very warm, though it was 0 C overnight. Breakfast was the highlight, stunning views...
