Pleasant enough stay here and only 5 minutes walk from the main restaurant / tourist area of Nelson and very close to the cathedral. Room adequate and staff pleasant. Swimming pool was small but quiet when we were there. Car parking is overly complicated. You...More

Quiet and spacious rooms, with a good view from the top floors. Not the most modern, and the restaurants not very appealing to us, so we ate out. Swimming pool not signposted, and too small for other than a footbath. Handy laundry room. Reception staff...More

We were there for three nights and really appreciated the beauty, the neighborhood and the friendly service. We even had a great view from the window. The front desk was unfailingly courteous and helpful.

This was booked last minute due to changes to our itinerary as a result of Cyclone Gita but turned out to be superb. Room great, staff lovely and location spot on. The two restaurants not quite our choice but otherwise we would recommend this hotel.

Located well to CBD, but certainly dated in its rooms. Front of house staff not very helpful with alternatives or hospitality knowledge for overseas visitors questions relating to TC Cyclone Gita. Suggest better alternatives available.
