The room was nicely appointed with king bed and aircon, which was appreciated on the very warm days we were there. The property is only 10min from town but...

Such a relaxing stay with amazing views over looking the stunning Nelson region. Not to mention the breakfast with some delicious home made muffins cooked that morning. Icing on the cake was that Spa, watching the sunset go down over the ranges. Thank you for your hospitality and making our Anniversary magical.

I had a wonderful stay in Nelson at Parautane Lodge. Alan and Candace were very happy to give suggestions on where to visit in town. They also serve up a hearty and tasty breakfast! Stunning views and access to one of the most spacious and luxurious decks I've ever seen.
