Situated just 10minutes from central Nelson this motel offers clean modern accommodation at a big price discount to places in Nelson. Enjoyed the $20 steak meal across the road at the Turf Hotel Wonderful and friendly hosts who helped us select our options to visit during our stay.

I stayed for one night. Was very well looked after. The room was warm, everything that I needed - and more, clean. The staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay again. Friends were upstairs but I could not hear anything.

Stayed at this motel 2 1/2 years ago and was impressed then. The standard has not dropped. We would stay here again anytime and although I am not a fan of recommending things I definitely would explain how pleasant both of our visits were. Good central motel and never heard any traffic noise even though it was a Saturday night.

Nelson turned on awesome sunny days for our week stay in the city and our accommodation at Boutique Motel in Stoke was excellent. Best position to enjoy easy access to the city as a whole, with a great eating place 'Squires' for meals and coffee across the road. Very well looked after by Nicky & Frank and would recommend and...

Reviewed 25 March 2016

This motel is quite lovely. It was well appointed, with amenities we require. But as in nearly every place we find in New Zealand, it only had one wash cloth for the two of us. (Why is that?) WiFi was sufficiently limited that we were unable to stay online and make the photo posts that we like to do when...

Dear mcnicolb, Thank you for your review. We are happy that your stay with us was enjoyable. Re the face cloths. In all our units there are the appropriate number of face cloths to each guest staying plus a coloured make up face cloth. These can always be found in the bathroom cupboard along with soap, extra toilet paper and...

We spent 2 weeks traveling around the south island staying at all different motels and the boutique motel was our favorite by far. Very helpful staff that were happy to advise us on activities to do around the area and traveling to our next stop. Also had a very nice, clean, comfortable and well equipped room.

We spent 4 nights at the Boutique Motel and were only in the room to sleep since our objective was to take advantage of all the sights, hikes, and activities in the area.

Again a business trip and lack of forward planning left me at the mercy of what was available. Boutique Motel, basically on the main road in Stoke, very clean and tidy, quiet location. Handy to a pub, several small takeaway/cafe dining options and supermarkets. Room was comfortable and I would have no problems getting booking again.
