Nelson Motel Accommodation

A warm welcome awaits you.

Ascot Lodge Motel & Encaustic Art Gallery,
Art & Accommodation Nelson New Zealand

Welcome to Ascot Lodge

Lynn & Stephan invite you to relax in spacious, sunny and private Nelson accommodation, amidst trees and gardens away from the main road noise, yet minutes drive from the Nelson city centre and Nelson airport. Our boutique Nelson motel accommodation is handily placed for cafes, restaurants, golf courses, beautiful Tahunanui Beach and its many amenities, with the added bonus of only being a short distance to join onto the Nelson Cycle Trail.

We offer you a choice of smoke-free studios to family-size units and apartments, all rooms with full kitchens, some with fridge/freezers, so you can cater for yourself, or if you choose we can supply you with a choice of continental style or cooked breakfasts.

Encaustic Art Gallery

The Ascot Encaustic Art Gallery is your chance to feel part of the Nelson art environment, especially if you take the opportunity to partake in an Encaustic Art Workshop while in Nelson and take advantage of our Art + Accommodation Combo Deal, or just take a few minutes to get an idea of how it works during a free demonstration. All units have original encaustic works hanging in them.

Being environmentally friendly we encourage recycling having containers in your unit for recycling as well as compostable products to go either in our worm farm or our worm composting unit. Our Environmental Statement has further information on our actions to help our environment.


Let us share our knowledge and enthusiasm for the region and make your stay more enjoyable.
