Renovated bathrooms with kitchenette and plenty of free data to use. it was an old kitchen which we didn't use so not much comment on the kitchen. Close drive to city centre. very close walk to McDonalds and petrol station also. Beds were comfy. i would definitely stay here again if I was to return to Nelson.

We stayed here for two nights before and a night after a trip to Abel Tasman National Park and had Room 701 both times, just opposite the pool. The solar-heated pool was too cool and small for my liking, but the room was just fine, clean and comfortable. It had a small, but handy, full kitchen. The hotel was a... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights on either side of a day trip to Abel Tasman National Park. About ten minutes drive from the city centre, the motel is far from new, but the rooms are more than adequate with, in th case of Room 701, a large double bed and a single divan, a settee, flat screen...

We have stayed at this motel now twice, a couple of years apart and will keep coming back. The pool is great, owners are friendly and there is free wifi. Not to mention the very short walk to the beach and bottle store and a lovely clean room. We have stayed in the downstairs rooms opposite the pool both times... More

We stayed just the one night en route south from Picton to Franz Josef. It was all we could ask for in a stopover, despite its slightly unglamorous appearance. A cheerful, friendly host; a large, comfortable set of rooms and a spotless bathroom - all seemingly recently modernised . The bed was especially comfortable! A short walk from the beautiful...

When I first the outdated exterior I was beginning to wonder what I'd gotten myself into. Room was tidy enough though good sized bathroom free wifi was good. Biggest problem was if you get a bottom floor room you can here every step nearly every word and much to my delight other holidayers trips to the toilet.

We booked this motel as it is close to the airport and has a number of restaurants within walking distance. We were not disappointed as the motel is clean and tidy and on a relatively quiet street. It is close to Tahuna beach and a short drive into Nelson City. Mapua and the vineyards are also only a short drive.... More

Clean and comfortable with kitchen facilities. Staff were friendly and able to assist with advise on sights and eateries. Rooms are ground level. About 10mins drive from town centre and eateries. Easy parking and access.

My two bedroom room was very clean and spacious. Pricing was not bad at for what they offer. However the outdoor pool is really small compared to what they have posted online and it was much dirtier as well. Other than that I have no other complaints.
