    « Road noise and terrible bed »

    Stayed in quite a small room close to road and it was very noisy. I travel a lot and this would have to be the worst bed I have ever slept in. Microwave did not work either. I would say owner was very pleasant, the place was clean and had a good shower. Just a shame about the noise and bed.

    « Large Room - Terrible Bed and Road Noise »

    We stayed in a suite which was well stocked and spacious. All good, except the bed was the worst of a three week trip and the road noise was quite high until early in the morning when trucks and traffic died down. There may be rooms away from the street, but for the rate, I would have expected better sound proofing

    « Disappointing experience »

    We wished we had chosen a hotel on a quiet street as it was very hard to sleep with the traffic noise. We did close all of the windows but that did little to reduce the sound. Perhaps rooms on the back of the property would be quieter. The location is on the highway, near a beach but not walkable into town. The studio units are quite small. The manager was friendly.

    « Great hotel »

    I really enjoyed the three night stay at Tuscany Gardens. We stayed in a room out the back with a beautiful garden area with seating to enjoy the sun. The owners are very friendly & helpful. Recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants to be close to Tahunanui beach with quick easy access into Nelson or out to Richmond & beyond

    « Cycle holiday »

    I have stayed here before. This time had a studio unit upstairs. Wonderful spot being private and a great view and an avocado tree freely accessible from the deck. However the designer or architect has not stayed here. Too small with no room for any luggage. Choose a one bedroom if you can. Great hosts and very acommodating letting us store our bikes in their garage. However all being equal I think I will be back.

    « Disappointing by Best Western Standards »

    The hotel was on a very busy arterial road and very noisy indeed. We stayed in a two bedroomed apartment but the twin bedded room was very small, rather a challenge to fit our luggage in. The staff however, were friendly and helpful. There was plenty of tourist info in reception and an excellent and very useful map of the area on the laundry wall.

    « Sunny Nelson »

    Very friendly, helpful staff. Large unit with lovely outlook from sitting room. Really comfy bed..I had a wonderful sleep. Room was well stocked with everything you might need. Great water pressure in the shower in a spacious bathroom. Would definitely stop here again.

    « Awesome but chilly Nelson »

    The staff are wonderfully helpful and friendly. It was really cold during my stay and the room heater was often on ready for my late return from work, which was must appreciated. Nice touches such as make-up remover, heated towel rail, filter coffee, dvd, a good range of kitchen utensils and microwave bowls. A little road noise but not enough to disturb me. Lots of tourist info at the reception.

    « First rate in Nelson »

    Have seen some comments as to road noise, perhaps their windows weren't shut as I have stayed here quite a few times and never noticed it. Have found all rooms that I have stayed in here to be spotless and welcoming and have no need or intention of staying elsewhere when in Nelson. The beds, showers and baths (for those rooms that have them) are all first rate as is the host(ess).

    « Badly maintained »

    Unfortunately in all our years of travel this is the first time we have left a motel earlier than arranged.The main problem, the bed was old, tired, sagging (much like us after our first night). Turning off water suddenly in bathroom produced a very loud and scary machine gun noise, managed to fix each time by rushing to kitchen and turning on that tap!. The wooden blind in bedroom would not allow Louvre to close then when finally actioned the whole top panel crashed to floor replaced by myself several times. The microwave lights totally blank no times, or timing showing. (it did work but own stop watch was needed) To top this all off when unit serviced replacement face cloths were forgotten. The staff we met were all very pleasant,(the owner, manager, was not present when we departed so we could not explain the problems in person) BUT the unit was tired in need of care. For the very high nightly tariff a better standard should be set. The inconvenience of having to repack, move and start again on our holiday was stressful to say the least, we were not prepared to wait and take the chance they could or would fix the bed, plumbing etc all in one day. So we relocated.
