  • Lemon Tree Cottage was very well located, in a quiet street near...

    Lemon Tree Cottage was very well located, in a quiet street near parks and CBD and also routes in and out of Nelson. The cottage was spacious and very comfortable with a lovely open plan kitchen / family area opening out onto a private sunny deck and backyard which was fully fenced. This was perfect for my small dog who came with us. All in all it was a very relaxing stay and Lemon Tree Cottage provided every amenity that we required.
