"This property is centrally located. Short walk to City Center and a path along the river. The staff weren’t particularly friendly but they were helpful when posed a question. This was a normal stay. Nothing to rave about but nothing to complain about either. We would stay here again."…"

Accommodation in Nelson

Come discover Nelson, New Zealand’s second oldest city. While its history dates back to 1871, there’s more to this coastal community than its past. Nelson sits on the eastern shores of Tasman Bay on the South Island, and it’s home to some picturesque scenery; lush mountains and turquoise water surround the holiday spot. If you’re the outdoorsy type, you’ve come to the right place. Nelson is teeming with outdoor adventures, from caving around Takaka Hill to kayaking along the coast of Rabbit Island. While you’re in town, get some height and paraglide over Tasman Bay, or go below the surface and snorkel at nearby Tonga Island. For those who prefer to bask on the shores, grab your sandals, unfold a beach chair, and stake a claim at Tahunanui Beach. Meanwhile, if you’d rather stay on dry land and get to know a bit about the city’s history, saunter around the exhibits at the Nelson Provincial Museum, which is the oldest museum in New Zealand. Other interesting exhibits around town include those at The World of Wearable Art and Collectable Cars and the Suter Art Gallery. Whether you spend your Nelson getaway exploring the great outdoors or venturing around the local attractions, this is one island holiday you won’t forget.
