“Great Value”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We booked late and the Amber Court was one of the very few motels still available. We'll definitely return next time.

Chris was very helpful and very friendly. He even stopped by one evening expressly to see how the boys had done in the tennis tournament that day. Our room was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. Easy access either north to the city centre or south to Richmond.

We've stayed at a number of places in Nelson and the Amber Courts easily offers the best value.

Awesome place!! Having arrived in nelson harbour without transport, we we're recommended the Amber court by a local. The managers there Chris and his wife were great. Drove us into town, helped find us a hire car and more!! The room was clean and tidy and in good repair for the obvious age of the motel. THANKS this is where we will stay again next time

We really enjoyed this place and felt it was good value for money. Bikes available at no charge and complementary transfers to the airport. Although older in style, it's clean, spacious, well appointed and the spa bath was a much appreciated luxury after walking in the Abel Tasman. Breakfast was good at a reasonable price. Christmas and Sharon were friendly, knowledgeable and obliging hosts. The bus to town stops right outside.

We really enjoyed our stay in Amber Court. The free unlimited wifi was really good and the location was great. The hosts were really nice and helpful and were very fast and efficient when we needed help. Furniture was a little dated and would be nice if were replaced. Overall great place.

My husband and I arrived after hours due to a late Interislander ferry. Staff was so friendly and helpful and left a full bottle of milk in fridge for us. Large room with lots of space for 2 people, quiet street, good parking.

Room Tip: Back rooms were quiet and away from street traffic.
