Well long story short they deserve all the awards . Rooms well appointed and exceptionally clean . Big thumbs up for this place.

This is a well equipped motel offering modern rooms with kitchenette and ensuite with spa!! Our groundfloor room even had a little courtyard. The bed was large and comfy and the motel is in walking distance to the centre of town.

Best motel we have stayed in on our travels. The appartment is really comfortable, modern furnishings, every thought has been made to ensure a great stay. We booked two nights and we're sorry it wasn't longer. Friendly staff. Close to the action. Highly recommend

Our rooms were modern, comfortable, very clean and well furnished. Would certainly return if we go back to Nelson. Our hostess was helpful with providing information. Not far from the cathedral, easy walk.

Visited for one night with wife and 2 young children in December. We stayed in the President's Suite. We had reserved 2 bedroom suite - not sure if this is the same or if this was an upgrade. We only stayed here as we had late flight arriving into Nelson and preferred to stay in Nelson rather than drive up...

Stayed here in Dec 2016. Way better than it looks from the outside! Nice grassy view from the window. Plenty of space. Quiet. Helpful directions given by the lobby person. A bit too far to walk to the restaurant row in town, otherwise this is a very good choice in Nelson.
