Things to do

With a full range of accommodation to suit all types of travelers, the Rutherford Hotel Nelson, like the district, has something to suit all types of visitors, whether couples or friends, families or business travelers.

Stay and relax in the sauna, workout in the gym, or in the summer months relax by our secluded outdoor pool. After you’ve worked up an appetite or earned that treat you can dine at Miyazu, see why Oceano is considered the best Nelson restaurant for seafood, or pop into the Port o Call. There’s Wi-Fi in the public areas to catch up with your friends or check into work, and a handy car park if you’ve brought your own car. If you just feel like retiring to your room there’s the convenience of 24 hour room service. 

When venturing out there are plenty of things to do. Snow capped mountains to golden beaches, lush green forest in the awe inspiring national parks to vineyards in their world famous stony soil. To help you choose be sure to read our notes about Nelson attractions for an overview and visit our in-house activity centre, provided to facilitate guests in their enjoyment of the diverse activities on offer.
