Accommodation is RutherfordHotel Nelsonyour own responsibility, however 20 rooms (with more available if required at this stage) have been penciled in at the Rutherford Hotel in central Nelson for $210 per night (two people) – Premium Room (the only type available unless you go for a much more expensive suite which takes the same amount of people) that includes one queen and one single bed, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilites and an ensuite with shower over bath.

Our research on other accommodation in both Blenheim and Nelson shows they are either solidly booked due to the airshow or they were of a very similar price, and the Rutherford is a good quality hotel.
