“Clean, pretty, and efficient--a very nice stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

This is indeed a "boutique" motel, as the operators have taken care to use good taste in the their decorations and furniture. We even had a jacuzi in the bathroom! The view was low key, suburban inspiring; the hosts were very, very helpful, giving us advice on dining and directions to Abel Tasman National Park (which is worth a walk, for sure). Our hosts were quite concerned about our well-being and about our needs. Perhaps one of the best features of this particular motel is that we had unlimited free internet access. While so many backpackers, hotels, and motels advertise "access" (which is a kind of bait and switch) this pretty Boutique Motel in Nelson actually provides high-speed free internet. I cannot overstate the importance of this ammenity in this day and age when it is absolutely necessary for a traveler to book accommodation and tours on-line, especially during high season. Well, hats-off to Boutique Motel Nelson! Downtown Nelson is modest and well organized with well lit cafes and streets that are easy to cross.

My Husband and I stayed 7 nights, great service from the cat that greeted us to the Nicky and Frank. Nothing was too much trouble. Could not fault the cleaniness of the unit. Found it one of the quietest places we have stayed, no noise from the other units. Geat having free internet to keep an eye on my business while away! Have already booked out next stay in Febuary.

We were down in Nelson for a funeral, so it wasn't the best of reasons to be visiting what is a fantastic location for tourists.

We were given a room at the back of the motel and found this to be really quiet and peaceful. The bed was big and comfortable, and although there was a nice big spa bath in the well sized bathroom, we didn't use this. There is also a microwave, facilities to make tea and coffee and a flat-screen tv in the room, as well as a two-seater couch and a small table and chairs.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend the motel for those visiting Nelson.

Room Tip: We were in room 6 and this was definitely nice and quiet.

Great quiet and very clean location to base our 3 day stay in the Nelson area. Excellent hosts, restaurants and supermarkets over the road. Guest laundry and free Wi-Fi was appreciated. Would easily recommend.

JoyNelson, Owner at Boutique Motel Nelson, responded to this review, 11 October 2012
Thank you Jacqui for your review. This is much appreciated. We are pleased you had a good time here in Nelson and that you enjoyed your stay.
We too would like to provide the full Sky package for our guests ( we do have Sky Sport 1 & 2 , Movies 1, History, CNN News, Trackside, Prime, TV 1, TV2, TV3, TV3+ & TV2+ ) but as the costs charged by Sky for their services are prohibitive we cannot justify doing this. As most other accommodation suppliers pass on these extra charges to their guests we choose not to do this so that we can keep our promise of providing sensible rates for excellent accommodation.
Please, on your next visit if you are staying a few nights mention to us which particular channel you would like and we can have one of our regular channels changed over for you. This is just one of the many services we offer.
We look forward to seeing you when you are next in Nelson.
