“Wonderful stay ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

My sister, my cousin and I had a wonderful three night stay at the Boutique. Everything was clean, great colours and we loved the bathroom, especially the shower! We had a lovely secluded, quiet room and could relax and "nanny nap". The outside was surrounded by beautiful pots etc. of colourful flowers, just like the photo. We were between Nelson and Richmond, and not far from my son's wedding venue at The Monaco. Also, we were across the road from a Tavern Cafe Restaurant and had a fantastic meal on our last night. The petrol station next door was one of the cheapest. Very much recommend the Boutique to anyone who is looking for friendly owners who take great pride in their motel, and who took photos and shared a couple of laughs. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter

My family loves the furnishing of the motel room, looks brand new. Great shower! The toiletries were well provided that reflect the thoughtfulness of the motel owners. Near to supermarket and we even found an Indian take-away eatery that provides delicious Indian cuisine.

They even have a swing for a great family photo.

Hi Karen,
Thank you for your lovely review and your comments regarding the decor of the unit and the amenities we provide. I am constantly updating the Units as I believe it pays in the long run to keep up to date & I believe if guests are paying to stay somewhere the accommodation should be up to a high standard.
The swing area in the front is proving to be a popular place for guests to sit and relax in. Our summer so far has been very condusive to being outside.
We hope to see you again when you are next here in Nelson.

small motel located a bit away from downtown Nelson, very nice rooms fully self contained and very helpful staff offering recommendations for restaurants etc.; very warm welcome; unfortunately located next to a major road so a bit noisy in the morning

Room Tip: recommendable if you want to explore Nelson and the surroundings; maybe not for a relaxing beach hol...

Hi Daniela,
Thank you for taking time to review the Boutique Motel. We are pleased you enjoyed your time here but apologise if the traffic passing through affected you.
Just to point out to future guests we are well set back from the road. We are situated off Main Road Stoke which before the Motel was built was the main road from the south into Nelson. Nowadays there is the bypass around Stoke that caters for the heavy traffic that goes up through Tahunanui on its way into the City. We would be one of the very few motels in Nelson that does not have night time traffic passing by.
Traffic dies back after our 5pm traffic rush and is usually non existent during evening hours.

The hotel was great, with an excellent clean room & kitchenette. The owners were friendly, and gave accurate and helpful information about sites in the area. A bit outside of central Nelson if you wanted to walk around town, but close to many good shops and places to visit.
I would highly recommend this as a good place to stay.
Everything was very clean, good setup in the room with kitchenette & ensuite, TV & DVD player. Good selection of channels for NZ.

This was a beautiful clean up market motel with everything we needed off the main road now due to new road to Nelson but worth the stay
Owners awesome and bailey the cat so friendly thank so much.
Each room had en suite with all the things you needed to be self catering.
Quiet and close to shops and food outlets.
Fully equipped kitchenette and you only had to ask or anything and it was there.
Great hand cleaner dispenser too thanks.
Plenty of safe parking and bus outside gate park across the road and good pub meals across the road if needed

Room Tip: any room they are all awesome

This was a great hotel. The staff were courteous, helpful and really nice to deal with. The hotel was in a good location and very close to all amenities. The room was exactly as described, it was clean, tidy and I couldn't find any faults.

I would have loved to had Sky sport and ESPN, but apart from that the internet service was excellent and I enjoyed my stay here. I will happily return again.

Hi Jacqui, my apologies for my reply to your review of the Boutique Motel taking so long to appear. I replied on the 10th of October but somehow the administration team at Trip Advisor attached it to a review from a previous guest who wrote a review in 2011. I have not been able to get them to move your review to where it should be so I have rewritten it. Once again please accept my apology for the slowness in this matter.

Thank you Jacqui for your review. This is much appreciated. We are pleased you had a good time here in Nelson and that you enjoyed your stay.
We too would like to provide the full Sky package for our guests ( we do have Sky Sport 1 & 2 , Movies 1, History, CNN News, Trackside, Prime, TV 1, TV2, TV3, TV3+ & TV2+ ) but as the costs charged by Sky for their services are prohibitive we cannot justify doing this. As most other accommodation suppliers pass on these extra charges to their guests we choose not to do this so that we can keep our promise of providing sensible rates for excellent accommodation.
Please, on your next visit if you are staying a few nights mention to us which particular channel you would like and we can have one of our regular channels changed over for you. This is just one of the many services we offer.
We look forward to seeing you when you are next in Nelson.
