    Went to check in and was greeted with a warm welcome. Room very clean with all amenities. So pleased to have a shower that does not have a shower curtain. Very comfortable bed. Décor is a little dated. Environmentally friendly, quiet location. Definitely recommend.

    Thank Cherie P

    Thank you for your positive review. We had mounted the TV onto the wall after you left us. It certainly changed the look and the space of the room. Hopefully, you will like our room even more next time.

    Amazing, friendly and exceptionally accommodating owners. Our room was spotlessly clean and beds super comfortable. Handy location to town, airport and beach. Definitely recommend staying here when you're in Nelson!

    Great location, very close to town, beach and airport. Staff was helpful and friendly, and our rooms were super tidy. Definitely recommend taking a walk around the area, lots of walkways and parks around.

    Best place to go if you are travelling without knowing where you will be at any one moment. Only local accomodation that answered after hours and actually advertised their vacancy accurately. Very helpful and friendly. Rooms clean, comfortable and well equiped.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. As the hotel is quite close to the city center, I will definitely come again next year. The staff was kind, the rooms really clean and the kitchen practicable. Thanks
