Had a great stay here - room had everything we needed in the family suite. Beds were comfy, and it was great having two bathrooms for all of us to get ready. We didn't use the communal kitchen, but it looked nice and clean. Thanks David, we will be back again!

Large units which are warm but the ones next to the main road are noisy...but thats to be expected next to the road. 5 mins drive... More

We have stayed here several times before as it is handy to family. Had the best room yet #121, bed was comfortable and the unit was spotless. Continuous hot water in the bathroom, only downside was that the extractor fan seemed a bit too slow to clear the steam - we just wiped the mirror with the towel. No sign... More

Ground floor room, 2 dble beds, lots of wardrobe space, nice shower. Small patio outside. Very cheerful & friendly host & hostess. Issued with small bottle of milk on arrival, to put in the fridge. Located in Stoke, a suburb of Nelson, between Nelson and Richmond. As might be expected for a motel, you need a car to get anywhere.

I chose this hotel based on location and thought I wouldn't care what it was like as long as it was close to my family.
