An incomparable combination of exceptional accommodation and one of the region’s top rating activities on the doorstep draws visitors to the Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco, a unique resort-like property on the small finger of land called Monaco Peninsula, just five minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from Nelson’s CBD.
With proximity to an expansive variety of activities from passive and relaxing to active and adventurous, with most options available yearround due to the temperate climate, a stand-out is the award-winning cycleway the Tasman’s Great Taste Trail, which passes the hotel’s entrance and provides easy access to explore nearby wineries.
The hotel has a great cycle package along with bicycles for hire at reception, enabling guests to get out and explore this delightful trail which is hugely popular due to the alluring combination of easy-grade, stunning views and a variety of artists’ studios, wineries and cafes along the way. Personal guides are also available to accompany and ensure the best is enjoyed in the time available.
Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco is built in a style that invokes an engaging village feel for guests to immerse themselves in, the designers having taken great care to create an authentic historic charm to both layout and features.
The resort feel is enhanced by its special location beside the estuary. Architectural features include recycled handmade brick work throughout, cobbled lanes, casement windows, stone flagged floors and low beamed ceilings using recycled timber salvaged from the original Nelson wharf built in 1842.
Four options of accommodation (boutique hotel room, one-bedroom studio, one-bedroom cottage with spa and two-bedroom cottage) are spaciously laid out in and around manicured cottage gardens, a large village green plus the ample parking area.
Behind the scenes, however, ultra-fast broadband, a solar-heated swimming pool, a recently refurbished gym and a team of skilled professionals ensure that this property offers guests the perfect combination of traditional elegance with the most up to date facilities and features for total comfort, whether on holiday or doing business.
