Really good value, excellent experience. Best motel cup of tea ever. Real tea leaves and a teapot. Nice touch. And a mini bar! Great service and very flexible when our ferry sailing was delayed. Clean and spacious.

We were greeted by friendly staff. The room was immaculately presented, exceptionally clean, modern, well appointed and very comfortable. If you enjoy a cooked breakfast, then do try the cooked breakfast. It was very tasty! It’s less than 10 minutes walk to town.

First time staying in Nelson and it won’t be the last. The Sails has it all and the hosts were super accomodating. Bed was super comfortable. The breakfast service has a great selection and delicious too. Minibar stocked with goodies - needed some extra chocolate bars though. A short walk into Nelson where you’ll find some delicious food options.
