Positive Reviews

Good central location

The reviews show that guests are very satisfied with the location of this motel. Situated on a main road, motorists seem to find it quite easily. In addition, those keen to explore Nelson's town centre note it is just a short walk away. This makes it easy for them to access the dining, shopping, and attractions at its heart.

Lovely owner and staff

Guests are very impressed with the owner of this motel, often mentioning her by name in their glowing reviews. She is said to be both friendly and efficient, offering a warm welcome on arrival and excellent service during the course of a guest's stay.

Clean and spacious rooms

The main takeaways regarding the rooms are that they are found to be both clean and spacious. Guests seem to have all the space they need to stretch out a little, and the fact that they are clean on check-in makes for a very good first impression.

Negative Reviews

Dated in appearance

Though guests acknowledge that it doesn't really affect functionality, they do say that the rooms look very dated and have clearly not seen an interior update for some time.

Paper-thin walls

Those unlucky enough to have inconsiderate neighbours point out that the walls here must be quite thin, since it is easy to hear noise coming from adjacent rooms.
