Superb 9.0 From 18 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
A great place to stay
I stayed here both before and after a kayak trip. I gad different rooms each time and was perfectly happy with both. Rooms are large, well appointed, clean and nicely services with very comfy beds and good kitchenette equipment. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Its not a posh 5 star but it is a really nice and convenient place to stay if you are in Nelson. Highly recommended.

Exceptional 10.0
Passing through for single nights on either end of a kayaking trip. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with goo kitchen facilities and wifi, laundry and pool. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. A short (5 min) walk from the center meant it was not too hectic and was a nice place to stay.

Good 6.0
Nelson Kings Gate Motel
Arrived late afternoon and greeted with a friendly welcome. Room had been left open which had meant many fly's had made there way in before us. Clean, but dated a little, bed wasn't the most comfortable. facilities were fine and suitable, separate toilet. All in all a satisfactory motel.

Very Good 8.0
Small room good location motel
The motel is in good location close to city center about 10 to 12 minutes walk. It's quiet and clean enough but a bit run down and a doing up will be good. Our room is also extremely small. We were staying one night so it's okay.
