We always stay here when visiting Nelson but recently it seems they've started locking the late night toilets....



Ok spot for one night. There was a bar nearby playing music until gone midnight and we felt a bit uneasy due to unwelcoming locals late at night.



Good spot in general. But we just had an incident. A car was parked with 5 men inside starring at us (my boyfriend and I) and then just drive quiet fast until they reach us and throw water at us, on our food, our phone.... It might be funny for some people but it was not. And you know you just end up with a bad feeling that it could have been something else or that they can come back...
