Rutherford Hotel

Address:
Trafalgar Sq, Nelson, New Zealand, 7010 - View the map

Welcome to Nelson: haven for cyclists, art enthusiasts, lovers of craft beer and fine wines, and everyone in between. Located in the geographical centre of New Zealand on the eastern shores of the Tasman Bay, Nelson is the perfect base for your nature-based adventures. And what could be better than staying in the only fully-serviced hotel accommodation in Nelson.

The Rutherford Hotel offers a range of accommodation to suit all types of travellers, with a full complement of dining options - two restaurants and a bar, along with 24-hour room service.

The hotel boasts a prime spot only minutes walk from Nelson's landmark cathedral and main shopping district (including just a block away from Jens Hansen Goldsmiths, creators of the ring in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy), and an equally good base from which to explore the great outdoors - with three national parks, sandy beaches, blue seas and mountain wilderness at your doorstep.

Sometimes, staying in can be just as much fun. Explore the great indoors and soak up the comforts of the hotel: enjoy a leisurely lap in the pool, relax in the steamy sauna, or workout in the gymnasium.

With so many ways to dine, unwind and take in the sights, the Rutherford offers an experience unmatched by other Nelson hotels.
