Stay here for 10 days while visiting Family . Stayed in unit 11 Nice big apartment everything well thought out. Good laundry facilities on site . Staff very pleasant and helpful. Perfect location near town centre but quite at the same time. Would highly recommend it if staying in Nelson

The unit (number 8) was spotless and spacious. Breakfast was very good. However sleep was difficult in a bed that behaved like a bouncy castle, and was so low that (for someone with bad hips) getting out was very difficult.

Absolute friendly atmosphere, thanks to Matt & Myrielle! Comfy rooms, clean and spacious, kitchen to fix breakfast, lunch and dinner with ease, washing machine available in common area. Location next to Maitai River...perfect to start a morning walk or run along the beautiful riverside. Almost everything in walking distance, we even had our private entrance and parking spot.

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.

The room had the usual facilities such as kitchen and toilet, and was clean and big.
