When I first the outdated exterior I was beginning to wonder what I'd gotten myself into.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.

When first arrived the man at reception was very hard to understand and motel looked very dated and unkept. As we were meant to stay for three nights we were very unsure if we should. Once we settled into our room we noticed how clean the rooms and bathroom was. Lady at reception next few days was lovely and helpful,... More

We were welcomed warmly on arrival, and our room was changed from the booked upstairs unit to one at ground level when they saw I was a bit lame. The room was spotless and the large bed very comfortable. The kitchen had a range and a microwave, and the frying pan was non-stick which is unusual for a NZ motel.... More

We spent two nights at the Balmoral Motel. We found this Motel to be extremely clean and comfortable. Well situated close to the beach and easily accessible to the city. The motelliers were helpful and always pleasant to deal with. Motel room is self-contained - kitchen sufficiently well-equipped for cooking meals. What a pleasant surprise to find good quality pots... More
