“Great motel and Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

We had a great stay and felt well rested before our trip to the Abel Tasman coastal track. The room was clean and fresh and nicely decorated. There was garden out side the room with a covered area and BBQ we would have love to use it but didn't get a chance as we were only there for 1 night. The motel owners were very friendly and went the extra mile to help us out. When we asked where the nearest supermarket was the owner offered to give us a lift as we did not have a car. We felt this was above and beyond our expectations. The studio rooms have a bed and sofa which is great to relax in. We felt this was very good value for money and would stay again.

We go to Airport Greens whenever we have an early morning flight from Nelson. We have stayed about 7 times and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The rooms are always clean and beds super comfortable. The owners are always accommodating and don't mind us arriving late. Certainly worth a visit!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Stayed here over Easter.
Room was clean and check in easy.
Was surprised at how industrial the area was but if you are happy to walk you can get to the beach in 20 minutes easily.
The room and bathroom were a good size but these units are very noisy due to incredibly thin walls and single glazing. We could hear the people in neighboring units as well as the children running round and round the motel.

There were a couple of things that needed looking at...electric blanket switch broken so could only be turn on at the wall and smoke alarm missing (only the bracket!)

Room Tip: Upstairs view looks over houses which are very very close

Stayed one night with a group of four of us. Rang up on the day of the booked and was able to fit us in no problem and they even came and picked us up from the airport.

Owners that run the place are very friendly and happy to help with anything.

Rooms clean tidy and just what we needed. It is within walking distance to resturants and the beech at Tahunanui, and if your into golf the course is only 30 seconds away.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

Stayed for three nights in February 2012. This motel has a good location, handy to the Tahunanui Beach area, Nelson Airport, the Nelson Airport and the WOW and Classic Cars museum.

The room rate was about average for Nelson but as someone else mentioned in another review, the Wifi internet charges are a bit steep compared to what I've paid at other motels. We decided to go without. To the management, you'd be doing yourself a favour by changing your provider from Voila to someone else.

Another issue is that we only seemed to have access to Freeview channels in our unit and not the Sky channels advertised. This didn't worry us much as we had a lot planned and weren't planning on watching much TV. That said, the TV was a modern Hi-Definition LCD and we found there was plenty on Freeview to keep us entertained.

The room was modern and the high-pressure shower and spa bath were welcome.

4 of 5 bubbles 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.
