My wife and I have been making our way across the world and have stayed at a lot of hotels now. You can tell that the staff truly cares about what they do! This hotel is perfect and has a complimentary continental breakfast! This was a first for us in NZ. We loved the location because it was quiet. Would...

Found the location by the marina excellent, was an easy walk to town but away from the busy streets. Set next to the marina means a scenic and tranquil location. Bed was very comfortable and shower pressure very good. Excellent selection on cable TV and nice complementary breckfast in the breakfast room. Would absolutely stay here again.

This motel is right by the harbour in Port Nelson. At first sight I thought it was in the middle of an industrial area, and was a little disappointed. My opinion soon changed when we arrived at the motel. The room was immaculate and had all amenities necessary to have an enjoyable stay. The moteliers were absolutely fantastic and could...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Harbourside Motor Lodge. Staff friendly, room's were very clean and tidy, bed comfortable and good selection of channels on the TV. Only issue was that we did not get any milk in our room.Thanks

We had booked a courtyard room here for one night before and after walking the Abel Tasman track. The owners kindly upgraded us to a harbour view room on our return and on the ground floor to save our legs! Both rooms were very comfortable and pleasant and we did appreciate the view from the second room. Breakfast was included,...

Thank you for your lovely review of Harbourside. It is always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their time with us.

This motel is so nice! The room was big and tidy, the bed really comfortable. The included breakfast was large and really tasty. Would maybe have liked to have a small kitchenette to cook something small in the evening.

Thank you for your lovely review, all of our beds have quality latex toppers to ensure you get a good nights sleep. Unfortunately the rooms were not designed to have more than the microwave for cooking. Luckily for us we have a great restaurant next door that offers room service all day with no delivery charge.

Lovely motel, rooms are spacious and comfy, great harbour view and a fantastic breakfast. Excellent value for money, we stayed at another hotel in Nelson that was the same per night, but was just not as good regarding the customer service, the decor and the in-room facilities.

This place is clean, well designed and the rooms have a balcony looking over the harbour. They also have everything you might reasonably need. It is not luxury but it is appealing and the new management, since 10/2016, are clearly intent on doing their best. There is a pleasant walk from the premises to the centre of Nelson. Worthwhile in...

Our room was quite large, parking was easy, breakfast was simple but ample. We could have walked into town for dinner but decided on taking out Chinese food one night and eating at the the Anchor restaurant next door the second night. Good heating controls, small shower but full bathtub for a change.
