“Great place to stay when you are in Nelson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

To start with, Hosts John and Sally are really great. We felt very welcomed right away. They are very accommodating and helpful. We stayed in four of their units during our time in Nelson, and they were all immaculate, well appointed, and pleasant. Their location is super as well. It is just outside of Nelson City proper. In just a few minutes, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and find yourself on a quiet street. Nice area to bike or walk. The free wifi is excellent as well. Great place to stay!

Room Tip: We liked the upstairs room the best of all four.

John is a top host. Stayed in 2bdrm unit. Compact lounge, spacious bdrms. Clean & quiet. Handy to beach and eating places. Imagine they get a lot of repeat business. Love the cute refillable milk bottles. Smugglers restaurant has always been a favourite - kitchen obviously in rush this time serving cold & under cooked meals. Spare ribs redeemed them though.

We were lucky to be gifted a two-night stay at this motel for our wedding anniversary by family. The idea was to explore and see Nelson, without children as tourists since it is our home town. As we didn't have a car available, it was great to have so many cafes, pubs and restaurants all within an easy ten minute walk. The taxi-fare into town was hardly anything either. The motel unit was well-equipped, clean and tidy, had a wonderfully comfortable bed, and the bonus of a spa bath. Being on the flight-path for the local airport, we thought it would be noisy at times, but the rooms must have been well-insulated with this in mind, making the noise minimal.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. We'd gladly recommend this motel to anyone looking for a quality home away from home atmosphere.

John & Sally are such great hosts, friendly, accomodating and interested in anything you are going to do or want to do. Our accomodation which was upgraded (lovely surprise) was immaculate. From the Merc for shopping to the Limo to our drop off at Intercity nothing was any trouble. Our whole weekend was so relaxing and stress free. We will definetly be back next year.

Planning a wedding in Nelson when you are from away is not so easy.
But John & Sally went out of their way to assist us in as many ways as they possibly could and to accommodate the wedding party and any other guests who chose to stay.
The rooms were all clean and beds very comfortable.
Facilities provided made us all feel right at home.
It is so close to the beach and cafes those who were not as busy as others were able to wander off and enjoy the surroundings.
They were also very helpful with all other aspects of the wedding preparations.
We used their Executive Limousine's for transporting us all.
All in all it was a fantastic week.
Thanks heaps for helping to make the wedding such a successful and happy event.

It is great to have John & Sally back at Arrow Motel Apartments, along with Karl & Fiona as hosts. They are all so welcoming, friendly and can never do enough to ensure our visits there are comfortable and stress free. They have refurbished almost everything since their return.
The rooms are always immaculately clean and tidy. The beds are so comfortable and cosy. The kids enjoy the pool.
The passion for recycling and eco friendly nature of the motel is commendable.
The free shuttle service to the airport is wonderful - makes you feel like a movie star when they rock up in the Merc!
The beach, restaurants, playgrounds, parks and other essential amenities are only a few minutes stroll away.
