"Ideal for sports teams"
Our stay at Saxton Lodge couldn't be better. The managers David & Desma were wonderful, always present, extremely helpful and very accommodating - the ultimate "good sort".
Rooms are large, well equipped with decent bathroom/showers, heat pump/air conditioning, glass double glazed to prevent noise from the main road, rooms in general were very quiet, you couldn't hear any noise from adjoining rooms or the road when windows are closed (or you can open them up for fresh air which would be great in summer). Beds are very comfortable, wifi available on request. We had all room types - studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and all these were great. Rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, kettle and microwave.
The communal kitchen is extremely well equipped with plates, cutlery, serving platters, jugs, pots & pans, toasters & kettles, 2 large fridge/freezers and seating, along with outside picnic tables. There is also a small meeting/conference room which comfortably seats 30. Laundry room with 2 washing machines and dryers - $3 per machine (Jul15).
Proximity to Saxton Fields and Complex ideal for sporting groups, plenty of parking on site. About 10 minutes drive to the airport, 15 minutes to the centre of Nelson. Complimentary airport transfers - which is a great saving if not driving.
I have no hesitation in recommending Saxton Lodge, and would return.
