We had a lovely room here. Very clean and comfortable. The owner also served a continental breakfast in our room at a reasonable price. There was ample parking and it was handy for the beach and other amenities.

Stayed for a few days to be within short walk of athletics track. Arrived very early, far earlier than check-in. I didn't expect a room to be available but was giving great treatment and I was allowed to work with access to wi-fi in dining area before a room was made available a little while later. Bonus. The rooms are...

We had a ground floor room for 2 nights and it was very spacious even with 2 Queen Beds. The décor is very elegant and the bathroom had a large bench, pull out clothesline over bath and the best shower pressure we found in South Island! Very classy hotel, well run and not too far from town centres. Road noise...

Saxton is situated about two thirds between Nelson and Richmond, making it an ideal mid-point for visiting these two enjoyable spots. The Lodge is on the main road between the two centres and has bus stops immediately outside, going each way. The room was comfortable and well presented and the bathroom etc all in good nick. But what made the...
