“Good value (internet aside)”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights, in a one bedroom. The room was spacious, clean, and well laid-out, with a balcony and decent view. Probably the worst feature was the internet access, charged at $8 for 25 MB (or $12 for 50 MB) per night (with the usage day ending at 10 am).

The hotel is close to the airport, but air traffic is light so this is not a problem. Loud guests partying outside on the weekend nights were more of a noise problem than the planes, but they mostly gave up by midnight or so.

The rooms have heaters but no fans or air conditioning. Nelson doesn't generally get too warm, but fans would be a nice addition.

This was my second stay at this motel which provides a very comfortable and homely level of accommodation. The rooms are crisp, clean and will meet your needs.

I was very impressed with the way the owners take pride in their motel and take interest in their guests. Personally I like to just come in and out without any fuss or disturbance, but it was still good to see owners/managers who care about the quality of their rooms.

The hotel is near to the airport, and like many other motels in the Tahuna area, there is some noise from the propeller planes taking off and landing at the airport. Just something to be aware of, but as I mentioned, this does affect many motels in the area.

The only downside to the rooms are the curtains. The curtains are a light colour and let almost full light in during daylight hours. Personally I like a dark room to sleep, and for many this may not affect them at all. But just something to be aware of anyway.

Otherwise highly recommended as a good base to visit the Nelson region.

Have stayed here many times over the last 4 years for business and personal and found the accommodation to be of a very good standard.

The hosts are pleasant and easy to deal with and rooms modern and well sized. Room rates are very reasonable.

It is near the airport and next to the Nelson Golf Course but still close enough to the beach or city. Being well off the road you do not get much traffic noise and the airport does not operate too early in the morning so I have never had an issue sleep wise.

If you are looking for a central motel not in the city center I would happily recommend the Airport Greens Motel.

My final day on the South Island was spent at the Airport, Greens Motel, Nelson, NZ. I had been on a week long hiking trip prior to this stay on the west coast. The showers in the bathroom of this motel was unbelievable -- I've never had so much water come down at once, and it was nice and hot. The room was clean as a whistle, and a balcony with a great view. The motel was less than a five minute drive to the airport, and the manager of the motel gave me a ride there at 6:30 in the morning. Nice people! If ever I return to Nelson, I will stay here.

I staid at Brenda&Jim's motel on the first and last night of my trip since they're close to the airport and the rental agency I got my bike form.

They were extremely accommodating (I didn't even have to ask for a ride to the airport! I was thinking of walking, as it's only 20min by foot), the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet (Nelson is a small airport, and there aren't any flights at night). The view is pretty nice, and rooms on the second floor (and possibly other ones as well, don't know) have a balcony.
