We were just staying one night and it was great. It was reasonably priced, friendly & comfortable. We were intrigued by the bed in the cupboard but the main bed was comfortable and the the facilities were clean & tidy.

We spent a night in Riverlodge and were very impressed with the warmth and kindness of the owner as well as his helpfulness. The room had the usual facilities such as kitchen and toilet, and was clean and big. Although there is a flight of stairs to climb before reaching our room(and needing to take our luggage up the same... More

I chose this Motel as it was close to town and had good reviews. I stayed in a very spacious studio unit. Location very close to town and yet very quiet. Host were very friendly and accommodating. Facilities clean and comfortable and very sunny. The room was dated though and for the price I felt was very overpriced. If your... More

We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights in January 2015 and were more than happy with the accommodation. The fixtures & fittings in the cottage were a little dated, however, it was all thoroughly clean and everything was provided that you could need. The location was superb, with an easy walk into Nelson where there is plenty of choice... More

Our upstairs unit was clean, fresh and airy. A high stud adds to the feeling of space. Good beds - a queen and a single and all other facilities adequate for this type of unit/price. Free unlimited Wifi was brilliant and a welcome change from the overpriced, low capped offerings from most hotels and motels. Great location for access to... More

The owners were amazing. Chris booked us into the cottage on our second night at no extra cost when a cancellation made it available and was a really great guy. It was central and convenient for town and the supermarkets and he was a fountain of knowledge regarding local tourist spots. It is on the market and could do with... More

We stayed for two nights and were more than happy with the accommodation. We arrived quite late but were given a warm welcome.

Stayed only one night. Booked through i-Site who told us it was only accommodation left in town - discovered later in the trip that i-Site statements are not always entirely accurate :-) Anyway, room was smallest we found on our holiday but it did the job. Quiet location with easy walk into town. A little pricey for what it was.
