“good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2011

We travelled to the south island by Bus and when we arrived we were greeted and treated very well. Rooms great,clean, lovely balcony, there were nice people of reception, owners on holiday, I thought that it was a good price, there were three of us, but we had four beds, $150.00 dollars. Coffee and Tea avaiable which is always good, microwave etc. Used the washing facilities, good, I thought it was a good little place to stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2010

I had an Executive room: worth the extra for a bit more space and an outdoor area with a view over the adjoining playing fields. The room seemed to have been recently refurbished with modern furniture, a desk, good storage for a few days' stay and a small dining table with 2 chairs. Good kitchenette area - microwave and electric frying pan for cooking - and a great shower. The owner was very pleasant and helpful with information on the town and surrounding area. Well situated for the town - about 10 minutes to walk into town and also great access to the main road for driving along the coast to Abel Tasman or to the beach.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2010

Ok so my title may be a little bit sarcastic - but this place is in dire need of a refurbishment!! At the same time it served its purpose perfectly so I can understand why very little money has been spent on it.

The staff (who were filling in for the owners) were very friendly and extremely accomodating. The room was a good size and had everything we needed. We were only staying for a night on our way to Blenheim and this motel was perfect for that.

Probably my key note was that the room was spotless - easily the cleanest room I have ever stayed in (which made up for the fact it was dated by about 30 years........). This is a very basic motel but is one that I would recommend to anyone travelling to Blenheim.

One other point - I thought the price we paid was slightly expensive and would like to see it more around the $90-$100 mark.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2009

We were only able to stay one night, and would have liked to stay longer. Friendly and helpfull staff, plush furnishings, excellent ensuite, kitchenette, a pretty outlook overloioking a schools sports oval - watch the softball pm - but therefore quiet at night. Could have had a little more space for a second suitcase for 2 travellers, but we shifted the dining furniture and everything fitted. A 10 minute easy walk to the centre of Nelson - good shopping, cafes/ restaurants and sights to see.
