          Stopped here for a quick night in Nelson. Beds were comfy, rooms were warm and the staff very accomodating. Appreciated the backpacker prices on food and drinks in the bar. The breakfast was also a great start to the day.

          Is there a cost for the shuttle bus service? And Where does it go?

          Hi Natalie - We provide a Free shuttle service to and from the bus terminals in town (of which there are two) between the hours of 8am and 9pm. All that we ask is that you pre-book it.
