“Just what we were looking for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2011

We had to change our travel plans to the South Island because of the earthquake, which included having to fly back to Auckland. We wanted a quiet motel for a couple of days located near the airport as we had an early flight. As this is a regional airport there are no flights at night, so its location overlooking the golf course and runway was really peaceful. Despite this it was only a short drive to the CBD, restaurants and places of interest in the town.

The room (one bedroomed) was spacious and well equipped, imaculate and we really couldn't fault it, so are only too happy to recommend the motel to anyone.

The unit we stayed in was fresh and spotlessly clean. It had two bedrooms with ample room in the second bedroom for 3 young children. The bathroom was spacious and included both a shower and spa-bath. The cooking facilities were clean and sufficiently equipped for a five night stay. There was also a secure and sunny garden area for our young children to play in.
Our hosts were very accommodating and though the motel is next to the airport, the noise was minimal.

Our stay in Nelson was perfect. Airport Greens Motel is perfectly located near Tahunanui Beach and the golf course. Our hosts, Jim and Brenda, were always friendly and helpful and ready to assist in any way. Nothing was too much bother.
The unit was modern and spacious and had 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen and loads of towels in the bathroom Doing laundry was easy and no-fuss. A very enjoyable stay in a lovely clean and quiet location, with wonderful hosts - what more could you ask for. We'll be back ! !

Accommodation of a very high standard with self catering facilities - ceramic cooker top and microwave, plus well appointed fridge. WiFi available at a small charge. Milk provided. Although close to the local airport, aircraft noise was at a minimum and did not distrub us. If we are in Nelson again, we will certainly use this motel.

We stayed for two nights on our sons recomendation and agreed wholeheartedly with his statement that it is probably one of the best motels in Nelson. Come to that it was deffinately the best accomodation of our entire trip to the south island!!
I needed help to locate the Nelson Brass Band rehearsal room, "Both" of owners dropped what they were doing and found all the details for me.
The rooms were super and the nights sleep was uninterupted by any kind of noise.
On leaving I made a small obsevation and was thanked for it, which is a wonderful change from some attitudes experienced.
If you want Nelson? Do NOT stay anywhere else!
