Pleasant accommodations

Guests enjoy a comfortable stay thanks to the motel’s clean and well-maintained rooms. They describe their accommodations as spacious, bright, and airy, praising the large windows that allow for plenty of natural light. Meanwhile, those lucky enough to be booked into a room with a balcony or a view of the marina are even more pleased, pointing out the view adds something special to their stay.

Tasty breakfast

It’s easy to start the day right, guests explain, thanks to the breakfast options available. A continental breakfast is included in the price of a stay, with guests pointing out that offerings are fresh and tasty. Travellers also have the option of a cooked breakfast for an additional charge. Those tucking into the hot meal suggest that it’s more than worth the price paid.

Marina location

The motel is located at the marina in Port Nelson, about a mile or so from Nelson city centre. The marina setting proves a popular choice with guests, who enjoy the quiet, calming atmosphere, as well as the novelty of being able to look out on yachts and boats. Travellers suggest that it’s a pleasant stroll or a quick drive to the city centre.
