Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
A fantastic weekend at Driftwood Motel, our leisure marching team spent two nights while attending Nationals. It was just like being in our own backyard with all the outdoor equipment we needed for our `quiet drinks and nibbles' each day. Inside, the very spacious, very clean units were all and more we needed. Heads up to Dave who I had to get out of his bed as our unit key was temporarily misplaced, even greeted me with a smile with the replacement key, well I think it was a smile. Thanks guys, loved it.

Thank you for your review, Maida and I are glad you had a good weekend. Thanks for see it as a smile I was still half asleep so not shore myself, we are happy to you again any time its good to see a group enjoying what we have to offer here at Driftwood Motel.
Nelson is a beautiful area, and the Driftwood is a wonderful place to stay. We were warmly greeted by David and Maida, and very pleasantly surprised by the large and very comfortable accommodations. It was just a short walk to the beach and several restaurants. A day trip to Abel Tasman for hiking ended with berry picking just outside of town. This was a great start to our trip around the South Island.
Thank you for your comments we are glad you enjoyed your stay and trust the rest of your time in New Zealand is as good.
Regards Maida and David
The room was spacious and very clean and tidy. Hosts were extremely helpful. It was great to be able to sit outside in the garden in the late afternoon sun. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. The beach is only a short walk away. Will definitely book here again next time we visit Nelson.
Thank you for your review, all reviews are helpful in keeping us on track to give the best service and value we can with what we have to offer here at Driftwood Motel.
Awsome place to stay - We stayed as a sports team of 10 kids and 10 adults. Dave and Maida sorted out the room allocarion with me so that we could ahve the kdis staying with each other and the parents could keep an eye on them. The beds are comfortable . It's yummy and warm and the Maida and Dave are the perfect hosts.
Thank you for a lovely stay
Thank you for your review. Your team were great and a pleasure to have, we would welcome your team back anytime.
Toward the end of our 3 week South Island holiday, we decided at the last minute to return to Nelson to visit with friends. The Driftwood was one of the only affordable options left available at 5:00 on Friday night so we booked it.
What a pleasant suprise! The hosts were so, so helpful and welcoming. The rooms were immaculate (new furnishings gave it a great updated feeling) and we decided to book for 2 nights so they upgraded us to the large suite! Very nice, quiet area off the main highway. Easy, 5-10 minute drive to the Nelson CBD. Classic Kiwi hospitality, SKY, clean, safe and friendly. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
