    It was comfortable, centrally positioned, easy to walk to the city and set in a lovely quiet, very pretty, older part of the city. It was a worthwhile and comfortable place to stay and good value for the money we paid. We stayed for over a week.

    Very spacious with good facilities, and in a nice part of town not too far (10-15 minutes' walk) from the city centre. A beautiful garden right outside the front door helps.

    Lovely little studio appartment within walking distance of the amenities of Nelson, but quiet and secluded. The apartment was well laid out with good equipment. We especially liked the garden and the ability to sit in sun or shade. We were able to do washing and drying no bother, and make simple meals.
