It’s always interesting asking local business operators how they ended up…
Located at 21 Trafalgar Street, just opposite the Trafalgar park grandstand, Kingsgate Motel is a self-rated 4 star Motel with 11 fully self-contained accommodation options. From one-bedroom units, double rooms, Queen and King size that sleeps even more. There’s something for everyone.
Kingsgate Motel is locally owned and operated by Mark and Rose. Their guests get a good understanding of what we call ‘Kiwi hospitality’. You know that genuine feeling you get when someone says “Gidday mate, welcome to our place.”
Mark and Rose hail from the deep south, where people call a spade a spade. Down to earth, warm and welcoming are great virtues to enjoy when you arrive in town for a weekend holiday, attend a conference or have an outdoors adventure. They’ve done all sorts of different things in the past from running a farm to engineering, to nursing just to name a few. It’s clear that they enjoy what they do and run a tidy ship.
“We take pride in looking after the guests and go the extra mile to make sure they feel looked after and the rooms are in top condition when they arrive. We have people stay from all over New Zealand and the world. We love it when travellers are genuinely grateful just to be here in this amazing region. In the busy 5 years we’ve been in the Motel game we’ve been asked all sorts of questions, some very bizarre (laughs) but we understand that people are sometimes exhausted when they arrive, so we give them a smile and try our best to point them in the right direction.” says Mark.
There’s a heated swimming pool for the kids, Smart TV’s all linked up with Netflix etc (which their guests love), safe convenient car parks and it’s all just a short stroll from the CBD. It’s the ideal location for anyone visiting Nelson.
If you are looking for tidiness, sweet location and great value in motel accommodation look no further than Kingsgate Motel.
