Good location near to the beach. Room was Well equipped with plenty of space and we were able to cook proper meals. We stayed on an extra night as it was so convenient to explore the area including Abel Tasman.

When we read reviews about places to stay, we look for good comments about the people running the show. Rachel at the Balmoral got high approval rates, so we decided to spend our three nights in Nelson here. We were so pleased we did. You feel welcome from the get go and are treated royally throughout your stay. Her friendly...

We stayed here for three nights just recently. We pulled up outside and were quite worried as it's has a rather scruffy exterior as the gardens are rather unkempt. The room however was older but had been redecorated really nicely. It had a few scuffs and scratches but it was really clean and spacious, the bed was new and was...

We stayed three nights in a two bedroom unit at the front for which was part of the older part of the motel. While being clean and had all the kitchens things we needed, it is definitely a typical old style motel with carpet on the walls. The pool was clean and the kids swam for a bit. Location is...

Large spotlessly clean units, comfortable and spacious. Though on a main road, quite private. Pool was also very clean. Lots of greenery, friendly management, great WiFi and a really good location, a short walk to everything you could need, beach, restaurants, pubs etc. Nice family atmosphere. Had a nice visit from Jerry, the talkative cat. I would stay again and...

Clean, quiet motel, stayed as a family with no issues. Pool is clean and while it is out front, it is private from the street. Extra bonus for daughter was trampoline and swings to play on, which got a lot of use! Location is great, 2 minutes drive from beach and funpark, and down the road from restaurants and takeaways....

We stayed here 2 nights, it was dated inside our 2 bed unit, which had Sky TV and free wi fi. The rooms were all a good size except the kitchen which was small, with not much space to cook in. There was a shared BBQ to use and kids went in to the pool (which did not seem to...

There is a mix of older and new apartments we were in an older one but that was no problem. The owners were friendly and helpful the rooms clean and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen more than adequate. There is also a swimming pool for use in warmer weather. The Balmoral is well situated for...

Typical old NZ motel accommodation which served its purpose so thank you for that. Parts had been renovated in recent years eg: the bathroom but that still had the old louvre windows! At the end of the day it is an old motel complex and for $145 was not cheap either. Great friendly service at arrival and check out. Thanks

Checked in around 7pm on a winter's night with 4 year old in tow (we had pre-booked) so it would have been good if the room had been pre-heated for us. We walked into a fridge and the heater was anioio old style fan heater which was noisy and gave me a headache. But the room was a very good...
