Balmoral Motel, Tahunanui
A night in Nelson
Our flight home was cancelled and we needed somewhere to stay for the night. Close to the airport, the location was ideal. We were greeted warmly, space was clean, bed comfortable. Ideal for a brief stay. Happy, too, with the recommendation for dinner.

Great location
Location was great! About 5 minutes walk to the Tahinanui beach. The hosts were very friendly and helpful too. Only qualm was finding a big cockroach in the wardrobe and 1 small cockroach in the living room. When we mentioned it they apologised profusely and promised to clean the room thoroughly. Other than that it was a pleasant stay :)

A very nice Motel
A really nice Motel just outside of Nelson. The unit was spacious, clean and well equipped. The laundry room was very useful and easy to use. Really loved the little area out the back of the units. Nice to sit in the fresh air. We ate at the Smugglers just along the road and had a really nice dinner there. I would definitely recommend the Balmoral.

Happy Days.
Just one small complaint, where the micro wave is situated the corners of the base need to be rounded off as I struck my head on the corners several times other than that my daughter and I enjoyed the stay. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Wally and Autumn.

Most helpful and conciderate Hosts.
We were visiting Nelson for Medical reasons and had a few personal difficulties. The hosts couldn't have been more understanding or helpful.
