Fabulous 8.6 From 61 reviews

Very good 8.0
Pleasant stay
Great outdoor space including bbq's and lovely view. Would be very nice for kids. Asian restaurant on site. Fairly well equipped kitchen. Separate bedroom and comfortable bed. Some updating needed eg. tub, blinds. Corner store with essentials and liquor very close. Small beach across the street - need your own towels. About 29 minutes from Nelson which is nice for relaxing.

lean and spacious
My only complaint is the smell of old cigarette smoke. It’s the first thing I notice as an allergy sufferer. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was bright and looks newly renovated.

Russell, ca2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good stay overall for my husband and I. Very friendly staff with a smooth check in/out. The resort is conveniently located about 30 mins from the hot springs and only 10 minutes outside of Nelson. For our hot springs and thanksgiving inspired visit, we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which is best suited for 2 adults, the listing mentions it can sleep 4 but this would be impossible unless the others are kids as the pullout bed is actually a very firm, small sized futon. The space worked well for us though as we were able to cook our meals in the suite’s kitchenette. There is a beautiful, new restaurant onsite which the locals raved about but sadly we did not get to try it out. Overall the suite was clean. had a comfy bed, nicely remodelled bathroom, futon couch, kitchen table and some limited kitchen items. In case you are wondering, in the kitchen you will find cutlery, 2 pots, a pan, cutting board, glasses, plates and bowls, a single serve coffee machine and a toaster. Great value stay, we will be back 👍
