As the motel had recently changed hands I rang to book accommodation as we have been caught out with places closing down. We were booked into a studio apartment for 2 nights. A few days before our arrival we received a text advising us about the keybox and the number for it. We hadn't realised that the new owners did...

We stayed for three nights on a side trip from Wellington and we were very impressed by the cleanliness of the accommodation, and the fact that the TV worked properly. Staff were very friendly and we had everything we needed and more. It's a pity this motel will be closing soon.

My family stayed here two nights. It was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a van and it was a bit tight parking by our room. It was in a good location not too far a drive to town. We ate at the next door hotel restaurant which was very good. There was a...

Three friends shared a two bedroom, one bath unit with kitchen for one night. The suite was very large, almost too big for what we needed. It would be great for longer visits as cooking would be very easy in the unit. The room was clean well-appointed, and staff helpful and friendly. Wifi was free but limited (as seems to...

A slightly older style motel on the outskirts of Nelson city center. Our double room was spacious and clean with an open kitchenette and a bathroom with a shower. The decor is partly a bit dated, especially in the bathroom, but everything is spotlessly clean and functional. Free wifi access and easy parking in front of the unit. Friendly staff,...

I would happily book again at this hotel. You get a free wifi pass also for each day of stay and I was able to leave my luggage with the motelier,...

On arrival at Picton, by ferry, we drove to Nelson by car (a two hour drive if you take the scenic route). Online we had made a booking for the Carmel Court Motel in Nelson to stay two nights. Nelson has many many motels, and we have only stayed at Carmel Court Motel, so we cannot say its better than...

We wanted an affordable studio close to the centre of town and came across this using the NZ Motels app. It was clean and comfortable and although on a main road and we were in unit next but one to the road, the noise was minimal. Internet was reliable and fast, and there was an option to purchase more when...

We found this a very good motel - all facilities including Wifi , roomy and a very helpful staff. Would happily stay here again if I was in Nelson and I consider this good value for money. I travel around 8 months a year and am pretty fussy and possibly a bit overcritical but this motel - despite being unpretentious...
