I liked location, but was disappointed in this day and age that there was no ground coffee in the room (just instant coffee, which I dont drink), and the double spa was smaller than my standard bath at home!

Good spot and great mussels! Breakfast was very good too. Good accommodation and a very good restaurant, all just a hop skip and a jump from central Nelson.

Loved the shower head options! Also the night light in the bathroom comes on when you step out of bed in the middle of the night which is awesome! Heated tiles in the bathroom were lovely too. The room was clean and comfy. Loved our stay. We went to the restaurant The Tides and had a fab meal too
