We stayed for two nights in January. We were very happy with the comfortable beds and spacious clean room. There were four of us in the room - (two adults and two teenagers) but we didn't feel cramped. Nice and modern - greatt shower pressure and very helpful reception staff.

Thank you so much for making our hockey team feel so welcome when we were staying there a few weeks ago during secondary school tournament week. Through the booking process, during our stay and on departure your team made us feel welcome and we all enjoyed our "home away from home". Being so close to the Saxton sports complex and clearly highly experienced in hosting teams, this is the no-brainer place to stay for anyone competing or managing a team.

This lodge is more a motel, but very comfortable. It's location is great, near enough to Nelson but also for those travelling further, it's an easy drive out. The rooms are huge, lots of room. Yes, Saxton Lodge is quite dated but honestly, it's very clean and you're given plenty of extras to make it comfortable. It's also quiet. We came back late one evening and only the sound of nature greeted us on our return. Overall, very happy with what we paid for.
