Stayed here as there were little options left available in Nelson last minute. We stayed 2 nights and felt it had the basics but was out dated and the shower pressure was pretty average. Also the bathroom smelt of spew upon arrival. Other than that the staff were friendly but would not stay here again.

We booked late and had very little choice in the area, this or ten bed mixed dorm, which was never going to happen, nice quick check in, big room and clean apart from cobwebs around wall lights. It was a nice touch to have ice in the freezer. The bed is really big and comfy. It also made a change...

What can I say. This is exactly what you want when you are on holiday - nothing was a problem in this place! Staff are so friendly. The Manager Justine even let me put my motorbike in her own garage. Room were clean and the housekeeper - the lady with tattoos was so sweet and she did go out of...

Short stop for a night before moving on to Hokitika. The room was alright but could be better. The kettle was dirtyish black on the inside so we used the microwave instead to make hot drinks. Overall it was tidy.

Found the fridge very noisy, so soon killed that with the off switch, I just hate it when people don't advise reception when faults are in the unit. eg, shower temp could not be adjusted, found it nearly impossible to reach the hot water mark. Its just not fair on the owner or the people paying for the room. The...

Very welcoming receptionist on the Friday night we stayed, really clean studio unit, quiet, had everything we needed. Lots of wifi and all of the Sky channels. We were impressed, so decided to stay a second night. Thanks for a great stay.

Aside from the noisiness of some drunken visitors on a Saturday night and subsequent Sunday morning in the car park outside our window, everything else was okay. Room was decent but the shower has basically no water pressure and there is no fan so the room got really hot even with the windows open. Great location: close to the beach...
