This is another in a series of reviews experienced on a recent trip to the
South Island of New Zealand. I arrived in New Zealand with no predetermined schedule and no hotel reservations. As I was entering the Nelson area, it was getting late in the day and deciding to take no chances happend upon the Best Western Tuscany Garden Motor Lodge.
The manager was very nice and negotiated a price on the room that may have been a little high given the location and quality of the property. First off, the room was actually a small suite with living/kitchen area, separate bedroom with queen bed and a good size bathroom with walk-in shower and spa-type shower heads at different heights in the shower.
While the room was clean, the very first impression I had on walking in was a smell, faintly of onion-garlic variety combined with smoky overtones. This persisted throughout my stay in the room. It was a second floor room with no elevator access. It was furnished with fridge, microwave and a small counter cooktop. Also, as noted in previous Tripadvisor review, traffic sounds were prevalent during all hours, although probably less due to the room being at the back of the hotel- in general, my sleep was not too disturbed by the noise.
Overall averageto low average experience, except for the unpleasant smell of the room.
