Nice room, clean and reasonably modern. Fairly central to Nelson city, Richmond, Stoke etc. Reasonable rates, good friendly customer service. Overall, very good. Quiet neighbourhood. Good scheme staying at ASURE Motels with the loyalty system with your 10th night free.

As a manager of a sports team visiting Nelson for a netball tournament, I can't say enough about how wonderful this motel was. The rooms were spotless and very well fit out for larger groups - especially the kitchen facilities. Rachel and Brent went out of their way to help us in any way they could, from cleaning out the...

Drove here from the ferry at Picton, about a two hour journey, Lovely motel located in a quiet residential area. Host very helpful, but retired the day we left.

Great quiet place to stay. Wonderfully presented by Brent and Rachel who both make you feel extremely welcome and at home. They also go out of their way to help with all you need. Awesome pool and area for the kids to play out the back. Highly recommended.

The Auckland Masters Ladies Hockey teams stayed at Fountain Resort and one other venue in Nelson. We found the new owners Rachel and Brent Wilson really friendly and welcoming. We had a meet and greet evening for the 70+ players that attended the tournament and given the generous lawn area, they allowed us to gather as a group for the... More

I booked this motel mostly for the pool area and the price, rather than paying an extra hundred per night at one of the hotels with a pool. It looked a lot nicer from the photos online though and the reality was pretty drab and in need of a facelift. The pool area is very exposed to the wind and... More

Was a nice quiet location, a bit far from town if walking, however only 10 minute walk to beach and water park. Clean and tidy with a small kitchen (with strict instructions not to cook any curry dishes) and a good children's playground (for young kids). Staff were very friendly. The gym was disappointing.

Thank you Craig for taking the time to review our property and thank you for your nice comments. We are pleased to offer full kitchens and we consider them spacious by motel standards, especially in our two bedroom units. You are correct, we do ask guests not to cook "odorous" foods as these can take the room out of service... More

We live in Golden Bay and stayed the night in Nelson in order to catch our early plane. Not only did they look after our car for the 2 weeks we were away but they also dropped us off at the airport and picked us uup....all this for no extra charge. Cheers Ngaire and Tony, we will definitely be back.
