Not what we expected, not bad a bit dated maybe, good size as has bedroom and bathroom on second level, comfortable bed, large bathroom, kitchen with washing machine, wifi. Not really close to the town of Nelson, not that it looked like the town has much going on anyway. Not far from the vineyards, which why we were there. If...

Dear avenue12016 Thanks so much for your review; hopefully "not what we expected" is a good thing! Our olde world English Village appearance of the buildings and accommodation is something a bit different, and we like to thing, rather special!

We booked a king hotel room but they only had a room with two twin beds so they upgraded us to a two room apartment type room with a kitchenette. It was very nice with plenty of space. The place has an older European feel. I would definitely stay here again. The only problem was the carpet was a bit...

We were part of a large group of people who attended a convention here over a weekend. In all we ate two meals here, which included drinks each night in the marquee. The marquee itself is a great venue for weddings or large social occasions, but I felt the bar let the entire place down. $5 for a soda water,...

This place was not at all what we were expecting but we were pleasantly surprised. Arranged in the style of an English village with terraced, brick-built cottages in a random arrangement. We had a two storey cottage, complete with four-poster bed and roses round the door. It also had a small, private garden at the back. Not what I would...

I liked the village theme, well maintained landscape and the peaceful atmosphere. Check in was very easy and fast, our room was spacious and clean. We got a kitchenette, fridge and other kitchen supplies which is convenient. The bathroom is nice and beds are very comfortable. Near the airport as well

The slightly surreal English village theme may or may not appeal to everyone, but the concept works, with individual houses having kitchen and lounge downstairs, with bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The location in Monaco is pleasant, and the onsite restaurant is good for a casual evening meal - less good for breakfast. It is some distance out of Nelson, if...
