Reviews and Customer Comments

★★★★★ Great motel

Excellent motel in the heart of Richmond, Nelson. I stayed in a tidy studio unit. Close to a main road but extremely sound proofed. Friendly hosts also! Very tidy and clean. First time I have been here. Will stay again!

★★★★★ Very professional

From the time I called from Auckland to book a motel to attend a family bereavement I was super impressed with the thoughtful, respectful customer service. I spoke at that time to Lesley the owner. We duly arrived Wednesday and were greeted with the same excellent customer service at check in …. especially recalling while we were in Nelson and offering condolences. The rooms were very clean and tidy, amenities perfect. A very professionally operated motel. I say 5 Stars.

★★★★★ Great Service

This would honestly have to be the cleanest motel I have EVER stayed in. There were roadworks going on and the host knocked on my door to advise me that they were happening overnight and gave me some ear plugs. Within walking distance of the Richmond Mall and shops. Great service. Will definitely stay again next time I am in Nelson.

★★★★★ Very accommodating

The Gladstone Motel saved us after a complete bulls up with another motel in Nelson. The owner was friendly, compassionate and very understanding of our unplanned situation. The wheelchair accessible unit is truly wheelchair friendly, the owner is very aware of different types of disabilities and nothing is an issue.

★★★★★ Gem of a motel

This gem of a motel is just amazing. The new owners couldn’t be more helpful and offer a wonderfully clean, tidy and modern facility at a very reasonable price. The furnishings were very stylish, the bed comfortable and massive (super King I think) and the bathroom was outstanding I would say this is probably the best accommodation to be found in Richmond.
