Our first night, we stayed in a regular room which had a big bed, nice sized shower room and seating area with kitchenette. On our return we had a sauna/spa bath room which was also very nice. Aloha is a nice place, reasonably priced and...

Well located near to the beach and only a short drive from Nelson. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was smaller than some of the motels we stayed in but it was adequate and clean. There was no air con which made for an uncomfortable nights sleep as it was very warm and there was no breeze. Reasonably priced...

First time we have stayed in this motel. Good location close to the airport, beach, restaurants etc. Good size room with spa bath and sauna along with great views of the local area. Maybe a bit close to the airport if you are a light sleeper but we would stay here again

The location just next to this wonderful beach is simply excellent. We loved the Chinese style of the hotel building. The rooms were small, but sufficient, and our bathroom was quite spacious. The General Manger is absolutely charming, helpful and attentive to all questions of his clients, a very nice person! For a bite, try the "Smuggler" restaurant with access...

Lovely big room on the ground floor with a very comfortable bed. Large bathroom - I think a disabled room, although we did not require it. Convenient parking next to our room, and a very friendly kitty to greet us. Tony was very helpful and welcoming. Continental breakfast was included which was perfect. My only negative comment would be that...

Our stay was part of our Topdeck tour. Only a short walk to the beach, parks, mini golf and other attractions. Comfortable room with spacious bathroom. While no restaurant facilities onsite definitely also suitable school or tour groups. Thanks for the stay.
