The Aloha Lodge was in a delightful location a little out of Nelson city centre with easy access and ample parking. The building was lovely with a small, welcoming courtyard to sit out in. Tony and the other staff were excellent. Our room was perfectly adequate, clean and with fridge and kettle facilities. No air con. The guest laundry is...

Thank you for the great review. both myself and the staff are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Lodge and had time to relax in the common area at the end of the day. The breakfast does start the day nicely and a place to plan the days events over a coffee. Kind Regard Tony

We stayed here over Christmas as part of our trip to New Zealand as it was close to where our family live. We had a wonderful stay with our twin girls who overcame their fear of dogs in the 4 nights we stopped there and were cuddling the 2 gorgeous resident puppies by the end of our stay! The room...

Tony wears many hats at Aloha. He greets you at the desk, dispenses pamphlets and advice about local sites, fixes breakfast, and entertains with his wit, cute dogs and cat. He looks up topics that we mention and later tells us of more local places to see that he has tailored to our interests. He remembered our names! He is...

We loved everything about this place; the location, the room, the views, the ambience, the owner's welcoming and friendly vibe- thank you, Tony! We (especially our wee boy Micah) also loved the motel matriarch, Titan the magnificent cat! Honestly, we can't wait to come back- we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. Thank you, Tony!

The beach is close by, there is a park right across the road and a couple of bars offering craft beers and a few eateries are also within walking distance.

We could not have been happier with our stay at Aloha lodge. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and so clean. The location is absolutely perfect, just across from the beach and a nice walk in to town along the water. Within walking distance from plenty of bars and restaurants I can't recommend it enough.

The hotel is GREAT, and the host Tony is the BEST. I would recommend anyone stopping and staying in this part of the country to stay at the Aloha Lodge. Walk to beach, short drive into Nelson city. 5 out of 5 stars plus an extra star for Tony's service with a smile and laugh!
