My parents stayed here for 4 nights recently and loved it. Warm unit with the sun flooding in, extremely comfortable beds and good facilities. And of course its in a great location, close to the beach and easy to find. Very friendly - would recommend it

Unit was beautifully presented and extremely clean you couldn't help but notice when you first walked in. Beds were fresh, everything you would need was available in the cupboards. Hosts were very obliging, We couldn't have been happier.. Suite was Excellent ++ would go back and definitely recommend to others

We were very pleasantly surprised at this lovely motel. We stayed for 6 nights and the owners, Lynn and Stephen were amazing. They were warm, kind and generous and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Our 1 bedroom unit was exceptionally well outfitted and spotlessly clean. And, as a cook, I appreciated the quality... More

Things we liked. Spotlessly clean , friendly manager, well maintained. The kitchen is really fully equipped,you could easily self cater, although we didn't. Welcome cookies and real milk in a real jug and plunger coffee were nice touches. On the downside parking is tight. Beds a bit soft for us.. These things were only minor but the big downside is...

We stayed for 3 days at Ascot Lodge in Nelson and had a lovely time. The room was well equipped, perfectly clean and very comfortable. Lynn, the proprietor, was very welcoming and provided lots of really useful information about places to visit and place to eat. Located a few minutes walk from the beach and a few minutes drive from... More

Our stay at the Ascot Lodge was excellent. The room was perfect for a couple and had all the facilities required for making food, including a grill in a cosy back yard.

Found by chance after a loooong drive. Have since read the reviews & all are very correct & still very current. Look, praise is not my usual concern but Lynn (your host) was supremely welcoming & just bloody friendly. She is a charf bag of knowledge be it local or regional. Gave us some great tips for our forward journey... More

Stayed 2 nights in February for my birthday - we had stayed here a few years before and liked it so much we were determined to return although we were well overdue a visit.

Last year we stayed at the Ascot Lodge. We were so impressed with the cleanliness, comfort, and super friendly hosts that we decided to make the Ascot Lodge our base home in Nelson during December 2014 and January 2015. With just five units, the Lodge feels like a small community of people rather than our being a few of the... More
