From the staff to the room to the restaurant - 10/10 experience. We were kindly upgraded free of charge which we were soo grateful for. The pool was an added bonus. I must mention Rubi is an amazing asset to your business - she deserves a holiday!

Wellington, New Zealand1 contribution
Staff at Hotel Nelson were very friendly and helpful. We were in the 4 bedroom apartment which had lots of room, though one of the "bedrooms" didn't have door which surprised us. Continual little things let this property down - - There was no washing powder for the washing machine - instead we had to buy tokens and use the washer in the general laundry room. It would have been pretty easy to at least provide enough for a load or two and advise that after that, the occupant needed to provide. - the milk in the fridge was curdled our first morning - Supply of dishwasher powder wasn't available on our arrival - The room wasn't serviced the first day and the rubbish bin for such a large apartment was so small we ended up dumping it ourselves. - Again, for a large apartment, the supply of pots and pans was pretty limited. - it was hard to recycle - bins in the kitchen would have been good. - The wifi connection was tortuously slow - we ended up hot spotting our phones. - We ended up only needing 3 bedrooms, but as mentioned the 4th would have not had privacy and as the photos show, one bedroom is totally internal, so no windows.

We stayed for 3 nights in Dec 21, room was great, clean and tidy. Liked the fact all toiletries smelt great and were in pump bottles and no stupid little plastic bottles to deal with. Pool is great too. Staff on check in were ok, on checkout much better.

Lovely stay at the Hotel Nelson. Nice comfortable room with space for us and the kids to move about. Swimming pool was a bonus for the kids to play. Staff were very helpful after we had left something behind, nothing was too much hassle for them. And the restaurant had the best coffee ive had from any hotel. Better than some of the local cafes.

Room was great, plenty of room for the kids to play. All of the staff were lovely and helpful, and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool area. We had a meal from the restaurant one night, which was fabulous
