 My second visit and I would stay again. Rooms are warm, clean and comfortable. The personalised service is excellent without being intrusive. Heater in room had been put on so I was cosy on arrival and my car windscrean was defrosted each morning - much appreciated. Close to beach, restaurants and airport. Definitely recommend

 Friendly and very welcoming. Ready to help advise and book trip if required.   Went out of their way to be helpful. Even washed our few dishes we left in sink and vacuumed our room as well as did our washing while we were gone for the day (which wasn't expected).All our beds made as well.

Small sized motel ~ advantage being you don't feel like your are just another customer.

10/10 Provided “old school service” very hard to find these days.
- Julie, New Plymouth NZ
 Upon arrival at 9:15 pm Phil very kindly arranged food and refreshments for us, Di arranged medical aid and transported my sister to her appointment.  Phil very kindly completed washing and drying and placed clothing in our apartment.

Even though we had no car we found eateries and bars and golf within walking distance.  Local buses were reliable and cheap for Nelson and Richmond.

Having stayed in 15 different motels/hotels in Australia and New Zealand this is well deserved of its very high star rating on and Trip Advisor. Well done to you all.

Helpful & nice staff. Beautiful motel. Everything was perfect. Such nice, helpful people.
- Mr & Mrs Tony Cotton, Somerset UK
Fantastic customer service given the rather 'spectacular' nature of our arrival. Assistance given to us to help clean up our car was much appreciated. Owner went out of his way to assist and give advise on things to do in Nelson (eg. Kaiteriteri, Totaranui Cruise - loved it!). Nice room, great place to stay. We appreciated the space to 'unfold' everything after nearly 2 weeks on the road in the South Island. We'll be back again.
- Michael & Joanne Bickhill, NSW Australia
Staff were amazing. We loved our motel unit - very clean & roomy. We loved our stay in Nelson. Really enjoyed our meal at the Smugglers restaurant.
