5 out of 5
The Nelson proved be one of the rare all around excellent hotels, while i was exhausted after a long day, and didn't leave my room after check in, i can say the reception staff were friendly and accommodating the room modern and clean, the bed just right, shower great pressure, the pillows were perfect with a soft fluffy feeling? I ordered a steak meal from room service and the meet was cooked absolutely perfectly. I didn't use the restaurant in person for breakfast but did notice that it seemed very popular with the guests when I past by. In my Travels around NZ currently i can only think of one other south Island hotel i regularly stay in that is = with the Nelson for all around excellence...sadly its rare for me to make it to nelson!
