We stayed for 2 nights in what turned out to be a spacious, comfortable, and modern unit with all fittings and equipment of a very high quality. Our hosts Debbie and Ross were very helpful and friendly and when asked were able to recommend restaurants which they had been to. Both restaurants were brilliant. We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night with no noise at all either from revellers or traffic. The walk into town was only a few minutes and the riverside walk was very close by as well. This motel had everything that we look for in a motel, and the free Wifi was another bonus.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 1st floor which was nice to sit outside with a view of the mouintains, albeit not close by.

room fresh and clean, nice kitchenette and good to have it separate from living area. Hosts friendly, an easy walk to shops. Cute grocery shop/dairy with fresh fruit and veg right next door. Compared to other motels I have stayed at in Nelson, it is an economical option. The only improvement I would like to see is stays on the windows so they can be left open on hot summer nights, as without air conditioning it can get a bit hot. Also nice to get a couch rather than separate chairs.

Recently stayed at Kings gate motel for three nights for my first visit to Nelson. The motels are very clean, modern and really well priced for four star accommodation. Debbie and Ross were so helpful during our stay and gave us lots of advice, thanks for the great cafe hints! Would recommend Kings gate for anyone looking to stay in central Nelson and wanting to a great carefree experience.

We stayed here for 6 days, nice room with everything we needed. The hosts were lovely and at the end of our stay our flight was later than the check out time of 10am, they kindly offered us another room for us to relax in until it was time to leave. It's a nice walk to town too.

Room Tip: There are no A/C's in the rooms. Get a can of spray for the ants and some insect repellant if your prone to sandfly or Mozzie bites.

Wonderful hosts, amazing service, and everything a visitor could expect for. Very close to town center. We had a wonderful time in Nelson during our family trip. Our children relaxed in the pool after long days out doors. Very family friendly, even provided pool toys for the children to play with.
