Stayed at this excellent motel on 3 different nights between different tours that we did around the Nelson area. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean and a good size. The motel was in easy walking distance to the centre of town, shops and restaurants.

A very special motel in the heart of Nelson, New Zealand. The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable with a full kitchenette. All the rooms look out to a courtyard which gives it a very homely, safe atmosphere. Within walking distance to the central city and Tourist office, this is an ideal location. The staff are very pleasant and...

We stayed in this motel when returning from a Southern Wilderness guided walk on the Heaphy Track. The rooms were excellent and quiet overnight, even though it is in the city center. I would definitely stay there again.

This motel had the highest level of cleanliness I've ever seen. Everything was spotless. The rooms were fitted out in a modern, stylish way with all amenities we required. I would definitely book here again and recommend it to others. Our room was ready and waiting for us when we arrived which was fantastic.
