I stayed here for one night while on my road trip through NZ. This was my favorite hotel out of the 10 I stayed in over the course of a month. Owner is super nice. Hotel is in a good location, spotlessly clean with good ammenities. I would definitely stay here again.

Sails was very nice. Fully appointed and close to everything. Chris is wonderful and very helpful with what ever you might need. There is a full kitchen and a nice little private sitting area off of the room. Highly recommend if you plan to stay in Nelson!

I don't need to write much except to say that this is a wonderful place to stay if you visit Nelson. We had a lovely few days here in July 2018 and will definitely stay again next time we are in the area. The host is very friendly, helpful and the room was very clean and well equipped.

Location is great - only a few minutes from city center but very peaceful. The room (Spa Apartment) is very clean and new. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. My husband got slipped disc so he couldn’t lift up the heavy bag so Mark helped to bring the bags up to the room. Excellent service for a motel!

Convenient and upmarket accommodation. Terrific service (and very well dressed) and the room was quite opulent. Quiet and very tidy. Remember this is just 3 minutes walk into town so fantastic location.
