Stayed at this motel, which I found to be generally comfortable, clean, and quiet. Despite being next to the backpackers I didn't find this to be an issue at all. Staff were accommodating with us changing our bookings at the last minute, which was appreciated after a long hike in the national park. Wouldn't mind staying here again next time... More

This was the first time to Nelson and first time staying here. The apartments were very clean and tidy and the beds very comfortable. My only complaint would be too many mirrors in the place. Two huge ones in the bathroom and another wall one beside the bed. Despite the mirror issue, I would recommend this place to friends and... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights to enjoy the mountain biking around Nelson. The first thing that should be noted is that the motel is attached to a large and busy backpackers' lodge. The pool is accessed through the lodge and via the dining room of the house. If, like me, you go for an evening soak in... More

This is a great Motel for relaxing. A weekend away was very much enjoyed here as the staff were very welcoming and had time to chat and make you feel very relaxed. The grounds were wonderful and very picturesque - despite the weather being overcast. Beds were soft but very comfortable. Very clean wherever you looked. Hot pool and Sauna... More

Apartments Paradiso in Nelson NZ is not what is advertised. It is a backpackers & has a fake picture of a pool in the front of tacky decorated motels. Booking.com led us to believe different. Both outfits are guilty of fraud in our opinion. They have taken our deposit declaring a no show on our part. No one showed up... More

I traveled for work and thought I should try somewhere different. I will not be coming back here if unless other places are booked out. The Apartments are linked to the Paradiso Back Packers so service it substandard. The room was clean. Parking is a nightmare, If you drive anything bigger than a mini or scooter you will battle to...

This is our second stay here, our first being in 2012. Again we were made very welcome by Helen the host. We had unit 1 which was on the ground floor in the right hand corner (looking from the road) and it was a very spacious unit which contained a large bathroom with a great shower. The bed was very...

3 night stay. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. 10 -15 minute walk to the city center. Staff are super helpful and the cherry on top is a free breakfast and free soup for your evening meal, though you have to take these in the communal backpackers kitchen. All in all good value for money.

Great location, within walking distance from city, yet quiet location. Stayed one night, for business trip, bed was comfy, room was good size and included kitchenette. Also included airconditioning which was perfect for a balmy Nelson night

The Paradiso is clean, comfortable and well presented. It has everything you need for nice relaxed stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only minor criticisms are that the shower head was not the best (the water pattern was a bit too spread for my liking) and the wifi was a bit hit and miss. Otherwise all was great.... More
