Room extremely well appointed. Very comfortable bed and spacious room. Close to CBD, park/bridge and nearby restaurants. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms are well appointed, clean and tidy. We would certainly stay here again. Great location.

This motel is back off the main street so is a lot quieter than the main group of motels. The motel was pretty basic but did have everything required for a comfortable nights stay. It certainly had the feel of going back in time - but not in a bad way.

We were just staying one night and it was great. It was reasonably priced, friendly & comfortable. We were intrigued by the bed in the cupboard but the main bed was comfortable and the the facilities were clean & tidy.

We spent a night in Riverlodge and were very impressed with the warmth and kindness of the owner as well as his helpfulness. The room had the usual facilities such as kitchen and toilet, and was clean and big. Although there is a flight of stairs to climb before reaching our room(and needing to take our luggage up the same...

Facilities clean and comfortable and very sunny. The room was dated though and for the price I felt was very overpriced. If your...

We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights in January 2015 and were more than happy with the accommodation. The fixtures & fittings in the cottage were a little dated, however, it was all thoroughly clean and everything was provided that you could need. The location was superb, with an easy walk into Nelson where there is plenty of choice...

Our upstairs unit was clean, fresh and airy. A high stud adds to the feeling of space. Good beds - a queen and a single and all other facilities adequate for this type of unit/price. Free unlimited Wifi was brilliant and a welcome change from the overpriced, low capped offerings from most hotels and motels. Great location for access to...

The owners were amazing. Chris booked us into the cottage on our second night at no extra cost when a cancellation made it available and was a really great guy. It was central and convenient for town and the supermarkets and he was a fountain of knowledge regarding local tourist spots. It is on the market and could do with...

We stayed for two nights and were more than happy with the accommodation. We arrived quite late but were given a warm welcome. It was an easy walk to the supermarket to pick up some supplies and with a toaster, microwave and hob we had all the facilities we needed to make supper. The Internet was free and very good....
