10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location & excellent view over the waterway for sunset / happy hour drinks. All staff were professional from reception to breakfast kitchen staff. Thanks Sally :) Evening staff went out of their way on a very busy evening to get us into the Restaurant THANKYOU Tommy :) Rosemary who was on waiting staff for the evening was very pleasant & said when she didn’t know something about ingredients on the menu...honesty always best option in my humble opinion & better than bluffing your way through. Go Rosie now you know about delicious Chai flavoured pumpkin pie. Thanks Chef it was Yum!! We will be recommending to all our Australian friends visiting Nelson in the future Joan W :)
Cons: Nothing except I didn’t like hearing the magnificent gum (Aust Eucalyptus) out on edge of waterway may be removed to make way for the new deck!! Do as we do and build the deck around it. Your guests and the birds especially the beautiful Kingfisher will appreciate it forever. It’s estimated at least 28 species of birds alone use large old trees such as this and they are truly irreplaceable. It also takes approx 150- 200 years for trees such as this to form hollows that are suitable as nesting sites for birds and bats etc.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location
Cons: We had a room with a kitchen. This was well equipped. The downside was the room and balcony overlooked the car park. We asked to move as would have preferred a better view and not the kitchen.

7.1 Good
Pros: Clean, nice rooms, good bed lining, really good shared spaces.
Cons: The morning shift receptionist was nice, but the evening one was not, it felt like she was doing me a favor . The showers were hot or cold not in between, and the top bunk bed was really low so the bottom bunk was tight. And most important- free parking is 5 minutes by walk at “paru paru” road. There’s free parking between 17:00 pm and 08:00 am.
