We only spend one night in Nelson so this motel did the job for us. It wasn't difficult to find and the location was good for walking into the centre - nowhere is really very far in Nelson. The apartment was spacious, although I wouldn't have arranged the furniture in the same way - as it was, there was no bedside table. The furniture was also a bit "retro" in style - similar to the ones I have seen at Camden Market - those from London will know what i mean.
The bathroom was refurbished, so it was nice and bright. The kitchenette had everything you need - we had dinner out, so only used it for making tea and breakfast.
The owner was friendly and helpful. i agree that the area around the apartments could be a bit tidier, but there we were only there to sleep. We were there in low season and weren't bothered by any noise. Again, being the low season, it was good value for us. Actually, it was the cheapest place we stayed in during our tour of NZ. But we had to pay for internet connection, albeit not expensive really. If we had to stay for several nights, we might consider somewhere, however.
