Great location
Location was great! About 5 minutes walk to the Tahinanui beach. The hosts were very friendly and helpful too. Only qualm was finding a big cockroach in the wardrobe and 1 small cockroach in the living room. When we mentioned it they apologised profusely and promised to clean the room thoroughly. Other than that it was a pleasant stay :)

Happy Days.
Just one small complaint, where the micro wave is situated the corners of the base need to be rounded off as I struck my head on the corners several times other than that my daughter and I enjoyed the stay. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Wally and Autumn.

Great little gem close to the beach.
It was a busy time and my hotel choice was made at this point in a hurry. But I am glad I picked Balmoral. Great location, 5 min to the beach and max 10 to restaurants. Amazing walk to town, it is an hour long but great views and totally worth it. The room was spacious and clean. Basic necessities. It's a motel, not a hotel, so you need to get your breakfast, but the awesome lady that the front desk can get something if you ask the night before. She was very welcoming and friendly throughout my stay. Totally recommend.

A night in Nelson
Our flight home was cancelled and we needed somewhere to stay for the night. Close to the airport, the location was ideal. We were greeted warmly, space was clean, bed comfortable. Ideal for a brief stay. Happy, too, with the recommendation for dinner.

A very nice Motel
A really nice Motel just outside of Nelson. The unit was spacious, clean and well equipped. The laundry room was very useful and easy to use. Really loved the little area out the back of the units. Nice to sit in the fresh air. We ate at the Smugglers just along the road and had a really nice dinner there. I would definitely recommend the Balmoral.
