Stayed at this hotel as part of a tour. Nelson is a beautiful spot....pretty sunny in comparison to the rest of the south island of NZ. Only a short walk across the park and you are at the beach. Also close to restaurants and bus stops to get into Nelson city.

Perfectly located just a few minute's walk from the beach and surrounded by bars and eateries, the Aloha Lodge is just the ticket. The rooms are large, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Parking is on site and free WiFi completes the package. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and breakfast is simple but adequate. Definitely stay here if you can.

Large room and bathroom, excellent Internet, great host, complimentary breakfast, and in a good location. My wife and I spent three weeks in NZ between the north and south islands, and consider the Aloha Lodge to be one of the best places that we stayed at!

A nicely situated and well kept accommodation run by the irrepressible Tony who was informative, welcoming and friendly. A complimentary buffet breakfast was included in the price. Would certainly recommend a stay here. We caught the bus into the town of Nelson which was easy from here.

Extremely comfortable and well equipped rooms / apartment. We were lucky to have the top room with the panoramic views. Free wifi, spacious and clean rooms and directly opposite the beach. We didn't use out sauna but the spa bath was blissful. A basic but sufficient breakfast is provided too. The host is extremely knowledgeable about Nelson and very friendly....
