We stayed here while in Nelson. Good spacious clean room. Easy walk to the city centre and local attractions like the Japanese gardens and history park. The Lady who runs it is very friendly and helpful, with good advisee on local attractions

Situated very conveniently to the CBD and a supermarket. Our room was spotlessly clean and just adequately equipped for making a light meal. We were welcomed by the very friendly owner who offered us a wealth of information. We were warm and comfortable and the shower pressure could have blown us away! It was a cold and frosty morning to...

We wanted to cook our own meals and this room provided all the facilities we needed. The room and bathroom were spotless, the bed comfortable and the shower hot. We were welcomed by a very friendly lady who gave us some local insights. The hotel is located a short walk from the supermarket, main street and restaurants. Overall a great...

The rooms are spacious and very clean. The owner is delightful and cannot do enough for the guests. There is a laundry on site at a low cost. The units are self contained and the location is fabulous - a very short walk to the main street and supermarket. Have stayed here a number of times and will stay again....

We booked the place using trip advisor just by having a look at the pics and when we arrived we found a very nice cottage style motel. Near the center of the beautiful Nelson. We picked a small room upstairs but felt very comfortable withe size and extended our stay for an extra day. Strongly recommended.

Friendly and genuine greeting on checkin. I stayed in the Nelson Room. This was newly decorated with fresh carpet and paint. I found the paint smell very strong which I did find difficult. It had a very large bed and a tiny Bathroom. There was no usable desk, and the iron and ironing board 'travel' style. Toiletries were in unmarked...

Thank you for your review. There are many discrepancies in this review. Firstly, there were no vacancies in Central Nelson on the night that this gentleman booked the Nelson Room. The Lodge had been completed renovated and finished by June 2015, some 4 months prior to this gentelman’s stay in the Nelson Room. Incidentally, the only renovation to the Nelson...
