I was amazed to be able to book a room at this motel for just $130 a night. Try not to be put off by the dated and rather unattractive exterior. This motel is excellent value for money in Nelson. The units are spacious and super clean. Everything you need is provided, though not cooking facilities. It is really close,...

Stayed for a night... the place wasn't bad to be honest... room was huge... shower was ok... couldn't find any air conditioning unit nor a fan... it was summer and was really hot but did not want to open the windows as I am a light sleeper and I always hear cars parking and going, people walking pass... but the...

The rooms are large enough and have a large bed. The location is just a bit outside of Nelson on a one hour drive to Abel Tasman island. The motel has a very small swimmingpool which is only attractive to kids. Bathroom is ok although the shower spray is not very strong. Wifi was a bit slow.

Very basic and tired rooms. There was mould on the curtains and the shower pressure was virtually non-existent. The phone in our room didn't work and when we advised staff, were told nothing could be done about it. Wifi was dial-up slow and staff weren't all that friendly either. I doubt we will be returning.

Stayed here as there were little options left available in Nelson last minute. We stayed 2 nights and felt it had the basics but was out dated and the shower pressure was pretty average. Also the bathroom smelt of spew upon arrival. Other than that the staff were friendly but would not stay here again.

We booked late and had very little choice in the area, this or ten bed mixed dorm, which was never going to happen, nice quick check in, big room and clean apart from cobwebs around wall lights. It was a nice touch to have ice in the freezer. The bed is really big and comfy. It also made a change...

What can I say. This is exactly what you want when you are on holiday - nothing was a problem in this place! Staff are so friendly. The Manager Justine even let me put my motorbike in her own garage. Room were clean and the housekeeper - the lady with tattoos was so sweet and she did go out of...

Short stop for a night before moving on to Hokitika. The room was alright but could be better. The kettle was dirtyish black on the inside so we used the microwave instead to make hot drinks. Overall it was tidy.

Not too many rooms face the beach though, but still a nice clean hotel, with friendly reception.Also quiet , my only issue was the shower , was like a 5 year old boy using the toilet. they do offer a charge back system at the restaurant near by , well done
