Review: Quality Inn Nelson

Trip to New Zealand & Flying with the King of Sweden on my 100th Flight in Business Class

Earlier this month, I was able to explore New Zealand, thanks to Singelresor. We flew with Emirates to Christchurch where we explored the South Island; then took the ferry boat to North Island and after visiting Wellington, Rotorua and Auckland, flew back home. As I had enough Emirates Skywards miles, I decided to upgrade my flight from Dubai to Stockholm in Business Class where I also had the chance to see King Gustav of Sweden as he was seated in front of me! I've flown 99 times in business class prior to this flight so this flight was actually my 100th time to fly in business class. Here are some reviews of the hotels we stayed at, as well as the top attractions we visited while in New Zealand, the land of the Kiwis!

A few weeks ago, I was able to spend a night in Nelson together with the Singelresor group. We stayed at the Quality Inn and during check-in, I was given a 3-bedroom apartment by the receptionist which was so cool! Checking the rates for this apartment on the hotel's website for next month, a night costs about 125 USD which I think is reasonable. I thought the apartment was really spacious and the kitchen was also nicely furnished. Complimentary wifi in the room was also a big plus. On sunny days, one can also enjoy the hotel's outdoor pool. Although the location is not that close to the city center, it was still about 10 to 15 minutes walk which is not too bad. Overall, this is a nice hotel and is highly recommended when in Nelson.
