      Amazing spa shower - didn't want to get out! Great location, right on the river. Amazing to see the tides going in and out and how it totally transformed the place. Staff were very friendly and the room was spotless. They also had free internet, which was fantastic.

      Nothing.

      This is our 4th visit to your Hotel since moving to Westport from the North Island 8 months ago, the first time we loved it and so have stayed there for weekend breaks or to do some shopping.

      Although my husband and I do like to have a cooked breakfast on the weekend he can easily eat a full breakfast,on the other hand I cannot being of smaller frame,so I asked the waitress if I could have a childrens cooked breakfast she went away and when she came back said no I couldnt because of the discount we were given on arrival for breakfast in the morning,she also said they could cook me a smaller breakfast but it would be the same price,so I ordered a full breakfast which half was sent back,maybe you could look into half breakfasts half price.

      Kia ora, I was upgraded to Di Lorenzo's, so my answers are for that motel apartment.

      I felt the website gave misleading pictures about the room we were staying in - it gave a much more luxurious idea which caused us to be disappointed in the reality of the room I also paid extra to book a room with a spa but the spa was so small we didn't end up using it - there was o way two people could fit in! Disappointing

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Nice room, good food, friendly staff.

      Nothing really. Very minor point was that we were given a pool-side rather than the river-side room we had booked but by time I realised, it was too late to change and everything else was fine.

      I enjoyed the breakfast i cant wait to come next time for tea

    • Single

      My stay was brief however I found the staff friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean and well priced. It was well situated in waling distance to centre of Nelson.

      I felt the decor was a little tired the vanity in the bathroom was cracked and one of the jets on the spa bath wasn't functioning.
