Lots of delightful details appeal at Sails Motel, Nelson. Silent cooling air at night. A choice of tea for the real teapot. Comfortable king size bed. A warm welcome even when we arrived after 8pm.

We both loved staying at The Sails Nelson. Our hosts were friendly and great with recommendations of things to do and see during our stay. All of the toiletries are eco-friendly and sustainable. The bed was very comfortable. The Sails Nelson is by far the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at before, it exceeded our expectations and we look forward to staying again in the future.
