Naturally visitors would prefer to stay in Nelson, that's usually the destination, however the town fills up pretty quick in holiday seasons. I arrived late evening early January and there were NO ROOMS in Nelson, Richmond or immediate surrounds.
Fortunately I had noticed the Brightwater on my drive in (it's about 16 km from town).
They had rooms, the price was Ok for the time, they serve food.
Room clean smallish but adequate (average roadside motel).
Value & welcome in a jam.
Bring the Rid or Aeroguard.
