Fantastic little gem
Fantastic little motel and excellent value for money. Only disappointment was the beds, they had a LOT of roll together and were really ‘springy‘ and bouncy - we had friends staying in an adjoining unit and they had the same issue. However we had a spare single in our room so we just used 2 separate beds so that we got a decent sleep. The owner is amazing and super friendly/helpful, and the showers in the units are really good. They have microwaves, fridges and cooktops which was helpful also. The location is 2 minutes walk to the beach, cafes, the Nelson farmpark etc. We would absolutely recommend and stay again.

Terribly Rundown
The service was great. Reception was friendly and helpful. But make no mistake - this place is terribly worn down. Hasn't been updated in decades. I can tell they try their best to keep it clean, but it's just a depressing place to stay. My room reaked of cigarette smoke, and the location was incredibly noisy. The staff were all great, and I can tell their trying their best with what they have to work with. But it's terribly, terribly run down.
