A very friendly, clean and comfortable place to stay. Richard had great suggestions for walks and bike trails and Lisa was a lovely and friendly face to see each day. Highly recommend this motor inn. Close to Nelson city; very handy.

We had a studio unit which had more than I expected, separate small kitchen with microwave. We were upstairs, there was a floor to ceiling window on to a teeny balcony. Tastefully decorated. There was actually another small room with a desk which we didn't really use. The bathroom was very dated, but so what, it was spotless, and a...

Just a quick trip to Nelson so only one night needed, Admirals was just perfect! Spacious unit with a double and a single suited us perfectly! Although an older complex it has been tastefully updated with lovely soft furnishings as well as tiling and vanity units. Extremely clean and tidy, free wifi and super friendly hosts. Will definitely stay again...

Given that the place next door is called "Quality Inn", this place is the diagonal opposite. No quality - just nasty. Somewhere between a 1960s build, "Outrageous Fortune" coloured glass, stairs to nowhere, cold hot water, taps which you couldnt get your toothbrush under and a distinct smell in the room, I figured "OK, at least the place was clean"....

Nelson was very busy and all accommodation booked out so I was glad I had chosen to stay for my 3 nights in town at the Admirals Inn. The room was gorgeous looking out across the park with the sun streaming in the ranch sliders in the morning. Very comfortable bed and beautiful furnishings. So handy to everything and I...

Stayed here for a week with a pal. Great layout as we had a room each. It was comfortable, clean and had a kitchen with toaster, microwave, kettle and hob. All kitchen utensils provided too. Only 10-15 minute walk to town centre and there's also a nice restaurant and bar next door incase you don't feel like the walk. Hosts...

We stayed here for two nights. It was the most dated decor we have seen in a Motel BUT the cleanest room that we have stayed in. Not a spot of dust or dirt anywhere which made our stay comfortable 😊 would recommend 😊😊😊😊

Lovely greeting and shown to my room. Older motel but has been updated and is clean with modern furnishings. Shame a main road is right beside the room but handy location to city. Quality Inn up the road offers a restaurant with some great kiwi meals. I will check it out tonight.

Thank tarnanne
