Beautiful towels. Clean fresh and very thirsty. A very peasant touch often skimped on by pretentious much more expensive joints that think they are better. Top notch included WiFi is going to help us remember this place.

Stayed Here Before

Pros: Friendly staff and they have some rooms with Spa Baths!
Cons: Close to airport (both a positive & negative) At least the airport doesn't operate all night
Location: Walked the Heaphy Track (4 days) then stayed here 2 nights to recover in the Spa Bath ! Nelson is close to lots of Hiking Tracks, Beaches & Wineries
Stayed here before so it was a no-brainer. Friendly staff, close to airport If you don't have a car there is a courtesy coach to the local Ale House that picks you up and returns you. Ask the manager for a 10% voucher.
