Trailways Hotel Nelson is located on the banks of Maitai River, in the center of Nelson. It features a restaurant, a heated outdoor pool and free WiFi access. Free on-site parking is provided. I liked the layout in the rooms, everything accessible not hidden away in cupboards. I liked the night light in the bathroom and the underfloor heating. I liked that it was downstairs and we didn’t have a long walk. Really pleasant genuinely friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Near the town for shopping and everything else. Very comfy bed.
Located in Nelson City Center, The Hotel Nelson is a 4-star Qualmark rated property within walking distance of Nelson Saturday Market, and the main business, shopping and entertainment precinct. Spa bath and sky tv was brilliant, restaurant is handy.

Pretty small town and easy to get around. Great kebabs at Paarsha’s and good coffee everywhere Nice for some relaxed shopping. Whitcoulls bookshop is excellent. Steep walk up to Centre of New Zealand lookout afforded a great 360 degree view. Tahunanui Beach was lovely- surprisingly warm and not too crowded. Nelson was great for a day and a night. As non Watersport / Winery people, 2 days was too much for us.
Aneat little town to get around in. Parking difficult at times. No parking in one of the main car parks after we had paid for a ticket so we left. Should be able to stop people coming into the car park if it’s full. Will drive in first and find a spot before paying in future. Lots of interesting shops eating places and art galleries with parks. Particularly liked the Suter. Good cafe.
The sun, the views, the small town feel whilst not compromising on facilities and amenities. Nelson is a beautiful little place, perfectly located to explore the Tasman National Park from and packs a lot of quirky little places into a relatively small area. Great places to eat and drink and loads of quirky little second-hand shops to pick up some revamped treasures.
A pleasant small city with a good selection of restaurants, shops and other facilities. A good base for the surrounding areas including Abel Tasman (about an hour’s drive). We used it as a refuelling and provisioning stop before heading down the West coast
We went to the Suter Memorial Art Gallery. What a great place and the introduction and explanation we received by the first staff member we met was fantastic!! And what a great place for a cafe after we had viewed the exhibitions.
Abel Tasman national park is an absolute MUST!!! by boat. 5-star lunch, food and view, at Awaroa Lodge. Great food at Cod & Lobster, Urban Oyster. Craft Beer at Free House. Tiny, walkable town center.

Woodi helped us so much in order we enjoyed the best of Nelson: booking activities, best tables in restaurants, recommandations...! The house is absolutely fantastic, the main deck offers a stunning view and is a perfect place to share a drink with Woodi and the other guests. We had an amazing time. Could not complete the review without a word on the breakfast; Woodi is a great cook, breakfast changes every day and we particularly appreciated the old fashion cooked scramble eggs! Best experience in New Zealand! Thank you so much.

Tasman Bay backpackers was quaint and charming. I arrived after dark and couldn’t believe how lovely just the front porch area was - nice lighting and tables for socializing outside. I loved their quotes everywhere and even though I just missed hot chocolate pudding hour there was still much socializing occurring in the common areas. I wish more hostels were like this one! Thank you to the accommodating, kind staff as well! If I’m ever in Nelson again I will definitely be staying here!

Excellent room in beautiful Victorian house. We had our own private access to the verandah which made our stay there even more special. Our hosts, Ray and Jules were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very good and cooked to order. We loved Nelson too. Overall, everything about the property and its locations surpassed any expectations we had.

Our rooms were spacious, very clean and comfy. Andrea and Gerhard ,very nice owners,who were happy for us to share their lovely garden space and pool. (Albeit a little chilly!) helpful with local knowledge and booking trips etc A little outside Nelson but well placed for beaches and trips to Abel Tasmin and Golden Bay.

The position in the middle of town was great. No need to use the car. Would go there again. Its cheap, clean and the staff friendly. Not luxury but everything needed for a few days stay in Nelson.
