“WEEKEND AWAY - 5 star motel!”

Not sure what to expect but this is one of the nicest motels we've ever stayed in. Superbly clean studio unit with lovely decor and nice furnishings. A short stroll to town, good parking, nice views from the unit and very friendly reception staff. Couldn't be faulted actually. We will be back. Thank you.

“Excellent ”

We stayed at the Nelson Lakes Motels and loved everything about it! The units are really well equipped and offer cosy, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The location is great too as it's close to places to eat, shops and tramping and hiking trails. Suitable for couples and families. Really lovely!

“Great stuff”

Stayed 3 nights with the family and explored the area further. Stunning location. Staff here are brilliant - friendly, easy to communicate with and helpful. Accommodation is really neat and fits in well with the environment.

“WOW”

When making a phone booking I was asked whether we wanted the standard studio or the large one. I said the large as I had visions of the standard being so small otherwise why would you offer a large - I was soooooo wrong. The unit was huge - bigger than most units that have a separate bedroom. It was very well appointed and very comfortable. Also very quiet and nice to hear the birds in the bush out the back.

“Family Log Cabin - beautiful & recommendable”

We (2 Adults / 2 kids 4 years & 0.5 years) stayed here for one night on our way south. The Family log motel unit was beautiful and well equipped with all necessary kitchen utensils. The motel is nicely located off the main road to Westport and has direct access to the Black Valley Walking Track directly leading to a Lake Rotoiti - in deed a perfect morning run along the shoreline. Staff were super friendly and helpful with recommendations. Great place for a family stay.
