This place is amazing, we liked it so much that we changed our plans to stay another night. We are hiking in the national park and this is the perfect place to stay. Laundry room and common kitchen helps for longer stays but we are more just enjoying the beautiful private back patio and great room

Great cabin, nice helpful people
Very helpful about suggesting hikes. Made a dinner reservation for us to make sure restaurant would stay open that late. Room was very comfortable and had everything you would need, fridge, cooktop, microwave. We shopped in Nelson so we could make our own breakfast and lunches. There are only 2 restaurants in town. Good WIFI. We were very happy with the lodge and the park is very beautiful though we were not able to hike as much as we wanted because of the heavy rain.

Great location and facilities.
Excellent location near the Able Tasman track and the facilities are great. BBQ and kitchen supplied so you can cook yourself (not the greatest Vegetarian options in town). Rooms are a good size and clean. Owners leave you alone unless you need something. quite and good birdlife.
