Comfy and super clean
A very attentive owner greeted me as I artived tired and stressed at almost 10pm. After i told him i had left my husband at the hospital with sudden complications from a cold, he even checked if I had had dinner. The unit had all the comforts of a small apartment and was very tidy. If your sleep is lught, the low-flying planes can wake you up early.

Cycling Trip
One positive for the Bay Crest Motor Lodge is its location in Golf Road, well away from the busy road from Nelson to Richmond but just a few minutes from the Tahunanui beach and shops and restaurants. I found the very reasonably-priced upstairs motel unit I was given comfortable and spotlessly clean, with a well-equipped kitchenette and excellent wifi. The owner was particularly helpful in getting my e-bike battery (which I couldn’t remove from the bike) recharged for my second day’s cycling. Again the motel’s location is ideal as a starting point for rides on the Great Taste Trail, much better than starting from Nelson City. I can recommend the Bay Crest without reservation.
