Changing Alert levels are a timely reminder that planning a holiday in New Zealand can be risky. We want to assure you that if you wish to cancel your booking with us becasue of uncertainty about future policy and regulatory changes – ie lockdowns!! – we will refund 100% of your deposit.
Many guests find our web site after first searching for “accommodation” or “holiday stay” in Mapua or Tasman – either via a search engine like Google or through one of the larger booking accommodation sites: AirBnB, Homeaway, Booking.com, etc.
You may or may not be aware that these sites typically charge service fee commissions between 8% to 10% to you, the guest, and between 5%-15% for us the host. On a 3 night booking worth around $600 those commission fees will be around $50- $60 from you and between $30-$90 for us. For longer stays those commissions increase proportionately.
You (and we) can avoid those commissions if you book directly with us. Our Little Hotelier payment gateway is secure and the booking experience is easy to navigate and use from a mobile phone, tablet, or desktop. not quite “1-click” but not more than 2 or 3!!
Note – the major online booking sites provide an excellent service in helping smaller accommodation providers like us to be discovered on the web. To a limited extent they also provide a form of “insurance” to you as first time buyers of unknown accommodation providers: eg by screening hosts and enabling user ratings.
So…we offer you a cheaper book direct alternative. Please give it a try.
We are offering a 25% discount for 7+ night stays through the Winter and early Spring right up to the end of the School holidays. We also have our usual 10% discount for 4+ night stays if you can’t stay for 7 or more days. (no, you can’t combine the two discounts !!)
Concerned about having to cancel because of changing Covid-19 alert levels? No worries – you can cancel any time with a full refund on your deposit (the deposit is 25% of the booking total).
Summer time discounts of 10% for any 4+ night stay. Book as usual or make an enquiry and we will send a quote for your stay at these discounted rates . Check out our new mobile phone/tablet friendly bookings page for availability. Select the nights you wish to book entering the relevant information for a normal booking .
Planning a late Spring early Summer getaway? How about a complimentary bottle of Neudorf Pinot Noir?
Early summer in Nelson/Tasman is terrific for cycling, walking, swimming (maybe!!), relaxing and indulging your taste buds down at the Wharf. NIWA is predicting a long hot summer this year, so… bring a friend and come on down after the usual summer crowds.
The promotion applies to bookings made directly on our website for the period 1-30 November 2018.
