“Fabulous apartment, stressed manager”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We stayed with 20 friends for a weekend.
Upon arrival we commented on the rain and older
lady behind counter started raving about being sick of hearing
such comments with a very stressed tone to her voice.
Comments about the noise were not called for as no music
just chatting and laughing over a few drinks. Maybe all our rooms should have
been grouped together...
On the plus side, VERY comfortable apartments.
Maybe manager needs a weekend away too

Trailways, General Manager at Delorenzos Studio Apartments, responded to this review, March 29, 2012
Dear Denise, thank you for taking the time to post your feedback, although I was sorry to hear our Relief Managers appeared to be under stress. They have been doing a great job, but obviously the rain and a busy Marchfest weekend caused them concern. In regards to room allocations, we always endeavour to keep groups together and we will now endeavour to gather more information from guests to see if they are traveling as part of a group. On the whole though I am pleased to see you enjoyed our comfortable apartments and look forward to welcoming you and your group back to the complex one day.
Kind regards
Garry Murno
General Manager

As international visitors, we appreciated the friendly and attentive service at this property. The managers were so generous with their time making sure we had what we needed and giving us lots of info on the area. Location was perfect for walking to the center of town and access to the highways. Rooms are super clean, well-stocked and have comfortable beds.

I stayed here for nearly a week in February 2012 and it was a perfect little spot. The location is excellent for access to Nelson, it is clean and the staff are great. Excellent value for money. The only downside to mention is that the pool is quite small so if you are thinking of getting some laps in, forget it! But who cares there is so much other stuff to do around Nelson anyway.

We found this place to be the best we have stayed in. Excellent service, helpful and friendly people to deal with. Our room was nice and clean, fresh and had everything you needed. Owners were very helpful in recommending places to go and also great places to eat. We highly recommend " a must stay ".

Room Tip: Just ask the owners.

Nice place, very helpful friendly lady at reception. Only downside was it was on main(ish) thoroughfare road, so little bit of noise... But very convenient walk to centre of town.

We spent three nights here while touring the area by car. The location was great - within walking distance to the market and restaurants. Unit was clean and comfortable and, a big plus, had a washer/dryer unit in the bathroom. Soap included. We had a little trouble finding it so you may want to map it ahead of time.
