A spectacular location

Guests couldn't rave more about the motel’s location. Right in the heart of Nelson, this property puts guests in close proximity of shopping and transportation. There’s a supermarket right across from the motel, and guests find this to be handy enough. They also appreciate that they can walk hassle-free to the nearby group of eateries.

Spacious rooms with comfy beds

When it comes to spreading out in the rooms, this accommodation is sure to be a winner. Guests are in love with the spacious rooms here, which make for a nice spot to store excess baggage too. Bathrooms are equally roomy for guests’ convenience. And, to complement the whole thing, beds are comfortable with beautiful linen and good pillows – the reason guests enjoy a good night’s sleep during their stay on this property.

Modern facilities

According to guests, the motel comes with contemporary facilities, which is a good thing. The in-room kitchen is fully equipped: guests especially like that they have access to a toaster, microwave, and ceramic cook top. Moreover, toiletries such as shampoo and lotion come in a dispenser – and guests find this to be a nice touch. The spa bath in select units is a bonus, and the well-maintained pool thrills most guests.
