“Overlooking Golf Course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We recently had a couple of nights here, the rooms were clean and tidy. We were on the 2nd floor so had a nice view of the golf course and could also see the planes taking off and landing. Not too noisy considering how close it is to the airport. My only complaint is the light left on outside the room at night which lit up the bedroom like daylight, need block out curtains or wear an eye mask!!

Room was not overly fancy, rather a little dated, but expected for money as it was very well priced. Very clean though and had everything we needed. Good service - helpful when wanting to organize something to do in town. Nice views over golf course. Great location, close to airport and a $3 bus ride to town! Good for a quick stay, not needing a swimming pool or gym, etc.

We found it very convenient, clean, beds were too soft for our liking, nice size rooms with private balcony. Also value for money. We picked this because we only had one night in Nelson and didn't have much time to spend in the room, so definitely value for money.

Room Tip: Higher floors are nicer, with good view over the houses behind the hotel.

I agree the view would be amazing if we where just that little higher, what you can see in great in the winter with the mountains covered in snow with powder blue sky's.The motel is great for Airport stop over's.

Great stay. Everything excellent. Helpful friendly staff. Nice clean room with good facilities. Kitchenette is handy.

(That my review. Why does it have to be at least 200 characters . It's annoying. Ever heard of short and sweet trip advisor. That must be 200 characters now.)

We found Green Hotel very convenient for the beach (without having to go on a main road)and for going into Nelson. It was very clean and comfortable and although close to the airport, jet noise was very limited morning and late evening. I would happily recommend this to anyone.

All in all we enjoyed staying here, with a nice room and decent location (out of town, very close to the beach and airport), plus friendly owner. Only problems we had were screaming (obviously very drunk) girls a few doors down, who could be heard loud and clear at 10pm due to thin walls, and loud showers / boilers that could be heard for the same reason. Also had to re-tune the TV as a previous guest (possibly kids) had deleted half the channels and made everyone look more orange than Dale Winton. If you want / need to be near the airport or beach I'd definitely recommend staying here, just hope you don't have screaming morons 3 doors down!

I'm sorry a few silly people made your stay less enjoyable.Showers have very high water pressure due to being on the golf course irrigation system.Some say they can strip away 10 years.So if you like a good shower you would love these.

Best 3 days in Nelson thanks to this place:) Great rooms, good location and friendly staff. We loved the little balcony og garden. Don't be afraid of staying at this place because of the airport near by, because you hardly hear them. And they don't fly to early or to late! We would stay here again. Thanks.
