Nelson is our third stop in our trip to New Zealand, and when I booked the Sails I only expected a decent accommodation that will satisfy our basic needs, but to my surprise, what I got is much much more. I have stayed in 5 starts hotel that I was not as happy with them as much as I am with this gem. The word motel has a certain stigma, but if all motels are like the Sails, then I shall always stay in them.
First of all the owners Max and Robyn are the best. They are very friendly and helpful, and their level of hospitality is a standard that all hoteliers should aspire to. They overwhelmed us with their kindness, and they helped arrange our day trip to Abel Tasman National Park, and they gave us tips about what to do and where to eat in Town.
The room itself is fantastic, and it reminded me of my own bedroom. I felt this way for the first time of my life, and keep in mind I stayed in a lot of hotel rooms. The room has a kitchen with everything you'd need and then some. There is a stacked mini bar as well as free coffee and tea and their kits. There is a TV with 50+ Sky channels, a safe, an Iron, and much more. The room also has a little balcony with a table and two chairs with a striking view of the surrounding mountains. The bathroom is amazing, and it has luxurious toiletries, not to mentioned the bathrobes and soft towels. For or 2 nights stay, we also got to free Wi-Fi vouchers, with 200 MB in each one. The motel has a laundry room, which we gladly utilized.
If you are anywhere near Nelson, I strongly advise you to stay at the Sails. It would feel like you never left home.
