“Another work trip to NZ, another wonderful stay at "the Lodge"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Came back to Nelson for business and enjoyed a couple of nights at the Tudor Lodge Motel that made
me wish I had a week to spend there!

The room I had was in between the road and inner-most part of the complex. It was quiet, tidy, the hosts were friendly and welcoming as always which is why I felt I owed them this praise.

We travelled as a group of six (4 adults and two children) we stayed in the holiday home at this property, it was nicely set out with three bedrooms, décor was slightly dated but overall it was very tidy and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, wi-fi access was limited due to the weather it kept dropping out, but otherwise a very enjoyable stay. The bed were comfortable and there was lots of space for everyone, I really enjoyed being able to sit out in the conservatory to read and being able to shut the door so others could watch tv. Reasonblely priced as well. Would definitely recommend to others.

This Motel with self catering facilities had one of the most comprehensive layouts during our tour of NZ in January to end of March this year. The kitchen and bathroom were the largest and the bedroom was also one of the largest, with huge comfortable beds, all modern and spotless. The welcome and help with advice on local restauarants and entertainment was just outstanding. So good in fact that we returned to it on our way back home to enjoy the welcome all over again.

Dear Monica and Allan,
It was our pleasure to have you at Tudor Lodge Motel and in Nelson.
Your review gives us proof that our efforts are directed in the right areas. Having the opportunity to chat with both of you about everything was a wonderful experience for Vuki and me. Your description of the unit is much better than mine, so I will ask for your permit to copy –paste your description in the official description of the unit :)
And we hope to see you again as we made “agreement” on your departure.
Regards from Vuki and Ivo

We stayed in January with two kids, we were in the roadside room and I had read the reviews about truck noise, but we didn't really notice it. Had a lovely private courtyard with chairs to relax in. The owners were lovely and give the girls extra Milo at check-in. Room was immaculately clean and had quite a few little extras that I wouldn't have expected for this rate. Was very handy having kitchen facilities. Kids stayed in twin single room and we had the Queen bed in the lounge, was great for watching TV in bed. Would definitely stay here again.

This was the second time we stayed here and we enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time. We stayed for 3 nights in a family unit, which was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the location was just perfect for the beach. Great value too. We look forward to our next visit!

We are back again after one year, this time for business. Again, the stay was just great. We we're welcomed by the friendly hosts, who remembered us from our last visit. the rooms were obviously upgraded since our last visit with new carpet and even newer flatscreen TV's. The grounds were very relaxing and the garden is very pleasant for a nice coffee! Will def. be back again soon.

Motel room fairly clean minus chipping paint and stained carpet. No frills here, basic sky, basic/uncomfortable bedding. Shower than ran hot and cold or just cold. Friendly hosts. May be good value for a family but not the best for a business traveller.
