Best motel in Nelson, stayed for Rep tournament, very welcoming, full kitchen, pool, safe for kids, easy access to beach and playgrounds over the back for kids. Rooms serviced daily.

Arcadia Motel is a fantastic place to stay. Andy and Jena are great hosts and they will do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are of high standard and serviced daily. The sky channels are a bonus when you're staying for a longer period. However the area has so much to offer that you can hardly stay inside, especially with the beach almost in the backyard. The motel has a small but refreshing swimming pool (for the hot Nelson days). I was staying in one of the self contained studios that is very well equipped with full kitchen, a fantastic Super King bed and ensuite bathroom.
There is no doubt that I will book at Arcadia again when I'm back in the area. Big thumbs up!

Hey Jurgen,

Awesome you had a super time here at the Arcadia. We very much enjoyed your visit and look forward to your next trip into Nelson (bring the family!) Thanks for your great comments on our Motel. I am glad that you found the Super King beds really comfy and made good use of the full kitchen facilities, guests really appreciate them and we have them in every apartment, along with the 70 My Sky TV channels or so. Every success for you in the future. Hope to see you again some time soon.

Situated in a wonderful location within walking distance to the beach. Immaculate rooms and friendly staff. The accommodation is spacious with plenty of room in the second bedroom for a third child, which as anyone with three children knows, is a rare thing! The kitchen has a proper oven and stove as well as the microwave. It also has a fridge/freezer giving you more options for family meals. 10/10, will definitely be staying here again during our next visit to Nelson.

Hi Guys,

Many thanks for an awesome review! Our large 2 bedroom apartment is great for large families, it has the option to sleep 4 guests in the second bedroom so if you have 3-4 kids it would be ideal. Thanks for mentioning the full kitchen facilities. I know most motels only have a small hob and microwave so this is a point of difference for us. We definitely look forward to your next visit. Give us a call on our free phone 0800 427 223 or book on our website.

After a very long drive from Christchurch we finally arrived at Arcadia. The room has two beds kitchen and bathroom, it is clean and to our suprise even got cleaned while we were away! It is 1.5 hours from Abel Tasman Reserve and 5 min from the beach, 10 min from city centre and supermarket. Definitely recommend this motel
