Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stayed in the studio room and thought it was perfect for our long weekend away. Kitchenette was basic but had everything you needed, even biscuits to go with your tea! The cleaners even washed up our dishes during the day! The whole studio was very tidy and the bed was comfortable. A little noisy with some people stomping around upstairs on the first night, but the other 3 nights were fine. Very close to town!

We stayed in the studio apartment with kitchenette. Basic utilities but exceptionally clean and tidy. Well recommended. Separate toilet and shower rooms finished to a very good standard. Sky tv available and internet .

This is a very conveniently located, nice and clean little motel. The owners are very friendly people and very hepful when it comes to planning the next parts of the trip. Our unit came with a nice little kitchen and a small but clean bathroom with everything one needed.

This small lodge near downtown Nelson was a perfect place to stay for 2 nights on our recent visit. We especially enjoyed meeting the director, Georgina McGrath, and chatting with her. She made us feel very welcome and apologized for the small room we were placed in. We did not mind the slight inconvenience of having a small room, the location and hospitality of Georgina made up for that!

We would stay there again! A great price for a good room!

We have written an earlier review on this accommodation which, for some reason, has not made it onto the website. Although well situated in Nelson, our supposedly king size room was almost filled by the king sized bed, which left almost no room for luggage and movement. The toilet, miniscule wash basin and shower also filled the very small space available in the ensuite copboard. No more to say really, other than that this was the smallest, and for us the worst, accommodation we experienced in our 5 weeks in NZ. Not recommended!

We stayed one terrifying night at a hostel in town and then stumbled upon this quaint little lodge. Georgina and the man that was working the front(can't remember name) were great hosts. Room was cleaned daily and it is only a couple blocks from town centre. It was only $30 more than the hostel for two of us and we got our money's worth by using the kitchen
