Highly overpriced. Stayed elsewhere the night before and wish we had stayed another night. Room was comfortable, service was below average and I don't know where the "resort" comes in to it... Regularly stay with Asure group and recommend all except this one.

Sorry that you feel it was overpriced but as was explained to you when you book for 4 guests and check-in with 5 Yes the price will change. As for the ASURE loyalty card, this was also explained to you, that it can only be used for accommodation and not restaurant charge-backs. This is an ASURE rule not ours. It... More

The room was spacious enough for the three of us, all spotlessly clean, change of towels everyday. The service from the owners was excellent nothing was too much trouble. Location and amenities was great. Highly recommend.

Nice room, clean and reasonably modern. Fairly central to Nelson city, Richmond, Stoke etc. Reasonable rates, good friendly customer service. Overall, very good. Quiet neighbourhood. Good scheme staying at ASURE Motels with the loyalty system with your 10th night free.

As a manager of a sports team visiting Nelson for a netball tournament, I can't say enough about how wonderful this motel was.

Great quiet place to stay. Wonderfully presented by Brent and Rachel who both make you feel extremely welcome and at home. They also go out of their way to help with all you need. Awesome pool and area for the kids to play out the back. Highly recommended.

The Auckland Masters Ladies Hockey teams stayed at Fountain Resort and one other venue in Nelson. We found the new owners Rachel and Brent Wilson really friendly and welcoming.

I booked this motel mostly for the pool area and the price, rather than paying an extra hundred per night at one of the hotels with a pool. It looked a lot nicer from the photos online though and the reality was pretty drab and in need of a facelift. The pool area is very exposed to the wind and... More

Was a nice quiet location, a bit far from town if walking, however only 10 minute walk to beach and water park. Clean and tidy with a small kitchen (with strict instructions not to cook any curry dishes) and a good children's playground (for young kids). Staff were very friendly. The gym was disappointing.
