“Fantastic Accomodation!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

My friend and I stayed in a Studio Unit for 2 nights recently, and we could not have had better accommodation. The unit was spacious, spotlessly clean, and had a lovely balcony which we made great use of. The hosts were particularly friendly, and had gone that little bit extra in the unit, with plenty of soap, shampoo, tea, coffee and hot chocolate sachets. They even had a coffee plunger, and provided a container of the correct coffee!!! The Press paper was delivered each morning, at no extra charge. The motels are only 5 minutes from the centre of town, very reasonably priced, and I will certainly be returning there.

My son and I stayed here for two nights during our trip around the southern island. Nice friendly hosts, who take all the time to give information or to help you out. Quit, spacious studio, with kitchen facilities, bathroom with bath, private parking places. Across the river central nelson with stores, information centre and supermarket.
A beautiful base to start your exploration of nelson and the things to do, like f.e. walk to central point nz approximately 45 minutes walk, founders park 20 minutes walk, and go back through milton street and grab some food at the milton street take/out,

whenever we will visit Nelson, we will stay here

Room Tip: we stayed in studio 8 with a nice balcony, early in the evening a great place to sit and play cards...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days. We were intending to stay only 2, but my wife got sick. The motel is in an excellent location. In a quiet spot near a river and park, but only a short walk to the CBD. Many other places are on busy streets but this combines peaceful location with nearness to facilities if you need, them.

Excellent hosts who did all they could to make us comfortable while she recovered. The only minor down side was that the TV did not always work properly. But you don’t go on holidays to watch TV.

Loved the motel dog. He'd greet you every morning with a wagging tail and a naughty grin that said "feed me your bacon". The location is fantastic, only a hop-skip to the centre of town. The complimentary airport transfer was greatly appreciated after the hell we went through arriving in Auckland. Nelson was by far the best stop in a stunning tour around Kiwi-Land.

A pleasant few nights stay. Have not many complaints other than the two twin mattresses pushed together but it was very livable. And the friendly staff made my stay that much better. I will for sure stay here again as it is great location, within walking distance of all the CBD. Thank you Riverlodge.

Stayed here with my Dad and step mum for 4-5 days in March after recommendation from our previous accommodation. It had all the facilities we needed and there were very few problems. The only reason I've dropped to 4/5 rating is because the apartment next to ours had a large BBQ party and seemed to invite dozens of people over and it went on for an extremely long time. Bar the noise that night though, the rest of the stay was extremely pleasant. Great hot chocolate sachets by the way. Thanks for the stay.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in Nelson and had the best night's rest of our entire 2 week stay in New Zealand. The room was quite nice, very clean, with comfortable beds. The owner and his wife were nice enough to give us great suggestions on things to do around the area. The location was just a short stroll from downtown and very near to the sports/rugby stadium. We would definitley stay again if we return to New Zealand in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor room nearest the office.
