Good location - an easy walk into town. Buildings were a little tired but well maintained. Bathrooms and bedding all modern. Service was a little hit and miss - sometimes very helpful and friendly; other times somewhat pedantic and unwelcoming. On the whole good value.

This motel was extremely clean, it has been recently redecorated and bathroom revamped. The bedding was great and the lounge furniture was very comfortable. The 2 bedroom unit was very spacious. Good Wi-Fi. Close enough to walk into the city to dine. Unable to fault our stay.

Really liked the location and the value. Kings Gate is an easy walk into town and as the rooms are set back from the road we found ours quiet. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and they are well equipped. I noticed they are refurbishing the bathrooms so they will be even nicer soon but we were happy with our... More

We just recently spent 6 days at Kings Gate and highly recommend. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which was spacious, clean and tidy. Beds were comfortable. Handy to shops and other tourist attractions. Friendly owners. Would definitely stay there again.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Pointed us to a good restaurant nearby which was great. The bathroom was older style but very well maintained and clean. Handy to everything. Would happily stay again.

The service received when checking in and the duration of my stay welcoming and friendly. The room was inviting and clean. I felt comfortable in my unit. This Motel is close to Nelson town centre and I was able to walk to the supermarket as well. Thank you for a lovely couple of days.

The staff were very friendly and gave me great advice about what to do while I was in Nelson. The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. There was free unlimited, super fast wifi and the free washing machines were such a bonus. The pool and sun loungers were much needed in the sunny Nelson weather. It was defiantly... More

Wardrobe was small and housed an iron and board. Reasonably sized living area with TV, sofa, small dining table and small single bed. Basic but well equipped kitchenette, tea & coffee plus fresh milk... More

First time for me in Nelson and a nice break from staying in a chain motel. Friendly staff, very clean and well equipped rooms. Short walk to town or restaurants. Will definitely stay here again if I get back to NZ.

An older style motel that has been partially renovated. Living suite was really nice, had a functional kitchenette off the livibg area. An older bathroom was clean enough and served the purpose. We would stay there again if we were in the area.
