Lisa & Richard were very welcoming and the rooms were fantastic. All very clean, good sheets, a television that worked and positioned near enough to walk into town for supper! Also we were able to use their laundry facilities, for a small fee, which was excellent as we were heading north of Auckland where my sister has a severe water...

We arrived at the Admirals motor Inn to an extremely warm welcome. The room was great well equipped and clean. Great local knowledge & great recommendations for food & wine tasting from Richard. Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Not that close to downtown - probably about a 20 minute walk. We had 2 different rooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) but there is no privacy as no doors can be shut for either room. They have a clothesline which was great, along with a washer and dryer. Overall met all our needs and...

Basic motor lodge which is fine if you're just stopping through for a night. But note, it's a very dated building: we had lights that wouldn't work and curtains that wouldn't shut. Door to unit was chipped and knackered. Also, very noisy next to main road - we were woken by a passing truck at early doors. That said, friendly...

We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the motel was given the cheap price and time of year! The room was immaculately clean, cleaned each day and was a decent size room. There was a toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge and tea/coffee supplies including milk. It was only a short walk into town so was very handy, and the service we...

Nelson was booked out over Christmas so there was not a lot of choice where to stay. We got a tourist studio with a kitchenette which was extremely clean but fairly standard for New Zealand motels. The owners are VERY helpful and nice. Top tip: ask for a room away from the main road to reduce traffic noise. Also there...

Went down to visit Nelson, flew down and booked at the Admirals Motor Inn, handy to the airport as well as the town. Great Host, very friendly and able to assist one with answer to the questions we asked him. Good pricing which helps out most people on a 2 day break.

It's OK.... It's got a lot bedroom upstairs with 2 single beds but wooden floors so with kids sounds very loud above... We had a done up apartment room which was nice with a TV in lounge and a TV in the bedroom. Had microwave and a small fridge. You'll need a car from here to get around but it's...
