Nice lodge if you can get one of the larger rooms

Amazing service
My wife & I came down to see a concert from Wellington do had a weekend trip to Nelson. This is a great central location within walking distance to the center of town. We also had a later flight & the host allowed us to check out a little later & held our carry on bags as we went out to lunch. We really appreciated that.

Welcoming family-run hotel
I had a very friendly welcome here from the owner (Georgina) who gave me lots of advice about where to go according to my interests - which happened to be Victorian houses & gardens and hiking. I was very pleased with Melrose (for brunch), Broadgreen and Isel House. Georgina gave me tips that weren’t in the guidebooks. I was upgraded to a bigger room which was lovely - with a well equipped kitchen. There’s a Countdown supermarket just a 5 minute walk away towards the town. The hotel is a short walk into town. I walked everywhere. I stayed 4 nights here. I’ll come back and stay longer next time.

Poor 2.0
we did not really stay as the owner kicked us out at 21:30 because as a result of us filling out the check-in questionnaire. Because we commented on the check-in experience and room condition, leaving a 'non-smiley face' (there are only 2 choices) the owner came banging on our door screaming that we have to leave immediately. When we asked her what's the deal - she told us that we are unhappy and so need to leave as this is "HER PROPERTY". She threatened to call the police (which we probably should have done as at that point the law was on our side - we paid and so entered into a contract and we did not do anything wrong). Prior to meeting the 'lovely' owner: We arrived at 3:40pm and the reception was closed with a note saying "back at 4pm". Nobody turned out till 4:30pm - a long wait in the sun when the reception supposedly is open until 7pm. Then it appeared the room was not ready so we had another 15 minutes wait. The room was OK but the bathroom has a lot to wish for (cheap hostel-style). If you after quiet night sleep - note that you are likely to enjoy the conversations or TV from other rooms.
