The apartment space was functional. The double beds were very small so not easy to sleep in if used to something bigger. The single bed was lumpy, you could feel the metal springs - so not good given the price. I would probably not stay here again because although the space was functional i.e the beds were clean, the sofas comfortable, there was nothing personal about the place, nothing loved. The bedrooms had no bedside tables, and no side lamps for example...just a bed in an empty room with cool blue-light utlitarian cieling lights. Not dissimilar to a cheap room in Bangkok, only for quite a lot more money!

Kind and friendly staff. Very clean. Central to town but still quiet and relaxing with easy parking.

quiet place and good location. Only annoying thing is there’s no private car park, needs to park off street, it’s not really safe. Otherwise it’s a good experience.

So close to the city centre. Only a 20 minute walk to the centre of NZ. Modern, clean, secure.

great location

Pros: The staff
Cons: Blinds could be replaced
Location: Great location close to city centre
While the apartments are in a great location a few things were lacking. For example the stove was very slow to heat up....the blinds were damaged and didn't close properly...there was an oven but no large baking dish. Cleanliness was excellent and the staff were very helpful. On arrival the gentleman on duty helped us carry our luggage to the third floor as there was no lift.

Great apartment

Pros: The woman at reception was the most friendly, helpful person you would ever need: nothing was too much trouble. She is a great asset to the business.
Cons: Needs a laminated card indicating what buttons do what on the microwave as the texta replacement of the original indicators has also disappeared.
Location: Very close to all shops and CBD activities.
We had a great stay in Nelson, and really enjoyed the apartment.
