We just landed from a long international flight. We needed help and rest. The owner noticed this and we were upgraded to the spa room + all the information we needed. The stay was great. The view from the top is amazing. The facility is clean and well located near the airport.

Fantastic value, very clean, extremely friendly host and staff. All facilities freely accessible. A stroll away from beach and numerous nice restaurants in 2min walk proximity. Plenty of parking, room bright and well equipped, fridge, tv, heater, wardrobes. Lovely hot shower and very clean. Can't recommend this place enough

Good Evening Thanks for the great review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay. To have people stay for a extended visit to see the sites of Nelson and the Tasman region is fantastic. This shows the region has a great deal to offer. regards Tony

Stayed here whilst passing through driving from Auckland to Christchurch and was definitely one of the better accommodations we had. Tony was great, welcoming & helpful plus full of banter. Good room, nice breakfast & beautiful garden.

2 weeks prior to our visit to Nelson, I sent an email to Aloha to confirm my booking (which we booked through Agoda).

The only reason I did not give this property a 4 or 5 was because it is beginning to age a bit and the room was a bit tired. It was clean and large and we loved the sauna! In addition, the continental breakfast was average...(no fresh fruit, or protein) and was certainly not what we had expereinced as we...

We needed somewhere central and wanted to be close to beach. This hotel achieves this easily. Glen rooms, great breakfast and Tony, the owner/manager is very friendly and full of help and tips to make your stay more enjoyable. Good car parking and easy walking to restaurants and pubs with the beach being 3 mins walk away.
