Positives: Very friendly owners who provided great information and good introduction to hotel. Room was extremely clean and felt very inviting. Nice jacuzzi bath tub.

Negatives: None really. The hotel is located a few block from downtown, but is a very quick walk and not sure there are any hotels closer.

Overall, great stay at good value - would recommend to anyone.

We had a great night's sleep here, on what was our last night in NZ.
The room was really lovely, well decorated and presented.
The staff were lovely and very helpful. They even have a loan pair of bikes for us to ride around the town!
We were sorry we were only here for 1 night!

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room when we booked, as we had had some noisy rooms on our trip!

Kiera and Bob are what we most remember from our three night stay at their clean, comfortable and conveniently located Nelson hotel. From the moment we arrived they were providing helpful recommendations and insight. We found their restaurant suggestions to be spot on and recommendations on hikes helpful. They assisted in our use of the guest laundry and offered us the use of hotel bikes to explore the area at a slower pace.

The hotel itself is well designed, modern and well equipped. Daily room service ensured that the high standard of quality was maintained throughout our stay. We would definitely stay again if we visit Nelson in the future.

We initially booked 2 nights but ended up staying 5. The motel has 4 star hotel standard accommation (5 star by Sydney's stingy standards) with loads of space, very good cooking facilities/equipment (saving NZ$50-100 per night) and is in easy walking distance to everything in town.
Free car parking and good free internet connections a plus. Owners and staff very helpful and hard to find a fault.
Nelson itself is a lovely base to explore Abel Tasmen, Rabbit Island and wineries.

What a great place to stay. The rooms are massive and really we'll equipped. You are only 5 minutes walk from the cathedral and the centre of town and on Bob,s recommendation we visited the free house which is a converted church now a pub which is great. Our hosts could not have been more helpful and this is a place I would certainly recommend not only. For the room but also for the great service from both Bob and Kiera. I would certainly stay here again.

I am a business traveller and stay here roughly every 2-3 months for a couple of nights. Every stay is just "easy" it's just like been at home, the rooms are in excellent clean condition, modern and have everything you need. Kiara and her husband are very warm and welcoming and nothing is ever to much....for example my last stay I came down with a tummy buy and Kiara, hassle free picked up some bits and pieces for me from the supermarket to see me through! Nothing was a problem!
I would totally recommend this motel to all business, holiday or just mini break travellers, it's A+++++

The room was very nice. Had everything we needed as well as a small patio. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The location is great ! We could walk to a variety of very good restaurants as well as to the downtown area.
