      The apartment was very spacious, clean, modern and had lovely views over the water. The location to cafe/ restaurants was great. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment which we really appreciated and enjoyed.

      Perfect location for us as we wanted to be out of the city and close to the beach. (You can't get any closer than the Sands to Tahunanui Beach). The Sands is located about half way between Nelson airport and the city so either way is less than a 10minute drive away. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable with everything anyone could ever need. Great bathroon with a fantastic shower too. We also loved the ease of entry to the apartment once we hired a car. We will most definately stay at "The Sands" again when in Nelson.

      Service by the manager, comfort and location close to beach, city and shops made for a very comfortable and relaxing stay

      Hot in summer but dual air conditioning compensates.

    • Group of friends

      the presentation of the apartment, the heat pumps to keep us cool and the huge deck

      a bit noisy with 4am hoons outside

      The view from the window out onto the sea and the excellent facilities.

      Neville was incredibly helpful/courteous. We had been travelling in NZ constantly for approx 3 weeks, so enjoyed our 2 days of relaxation at the Sands. The location was perfect, lovely outlook with plenty of dining and other facilities within arms reach. We will definitely be staying again, the next time will be for an extended stay. Can't recommend the Sands enough!

      The view and quality of the accomodations. Clearly one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had.

      Reception isn't staffed full time, so getting a hold of someone to check in can be difficult, especially if you don't have a mobile phone (particularly challenging if you are travelling from outside of New Zealand).

      Had a lovely 3 night break away. The location was great, and the facilities excellent, so good that I was prepared to cook our meals, as there was such great views from the dining table! Neville who checked us in was very informative and friendly!

      Secure car parking right outside The apartment. Good laundry facilities, modern kitchen with expensive appliances, sky tv.

      Integrated fridge door broken, stains on carpet, a bit shabby in places

      I loved it's decor and the friendly welcome. Even with dishevelled appearance when turning up to get keys from hours of driving and a quick swim at hamner springs, the reception staff were very welcoming and explained everything in a clear quick manner and then left me to get on with sorting out tired children.

      It appeared that my stay just wasn't long enough. The fantastic showers and comfy beds were over much to fast.

      The apartment was beautifully furnished, lovely views and we enjoyed having separate bathrooms for each of the bedrooms.
