This motel is near a golf course. We had a room on the first floor accomodating for five people. The rooms are spacious and it was clean. It was not near the town centre but if you have a car that is not a problem. We had problem with the wifi, just could not connect even though we had the...

This motel is quite a bit out of town, and there are no restaurants nearby, but it is right at the entrance to the golf course. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was large with separate double room and a good sized open plan area with 2 single beds, settee and a dinning space with table and 4 chairs...

This is a reasonably priced motel in a nice location. Unfortunately the WiFi is generally hopeless. I had plans of doing some work that involved more than a bit of internet access, and frankly the connection was unavailable more often than not, and when I did manage to connect the service was painfully slow. I would not return.

This service will be upgraded as we are also disappointed in the service provider.

Recently renovated, spacious rooms. Nice outdoor area with picnic table Very close to airport with free transfer (730am onwards altho the manager was very nice and took us a few mins earlier). The only negative is the wifi was weak.

We travelled around South Island for two weeks and experienced a range of different New Zealand motels, most of them very nice, well managed and carefully maintained. Greens motel was among the highest priced, and we expected something in the top range, but were disappointed. The place has certainly seen better days. Particularly the bathroom was not very clean and...

The facility is next to a golf course. Nice room. Clean. Full kitchenette. The room was handi-capped accessible, so it was large. There was some free wi-fi, but the signal wasn't very strong. Not noisy. Good value.

Thanks for your review I'm glad you enjoyed the location.The wifi is a Nelson wide problem and also we have limited service providers.We have made it Free for this reason and I fully understand the frustration.

Great place especially if your a golfer. We shared a 2 bedroom unit with friends over Easter and enjoyed the peace of this great motel close to the Airport (which I knew about). The planes didnt bother us as last flight is before 10pm and first is around 7am. The only downer was that smokers populate the balconies and the...

Thank you for your comments about the smokers I totally agree as I'm a non smoker and that would have been disappointing to me.I will look forward to the future when New Zealand becomes totally smoke free.When you stay again we will make sure you are not in this position again.

We spent just one night here as we were attending a wedding so didn't really spend much time in the unit however our stay was comfortable & the studio was clean & well equipped for our requirements. Rate was very reasonable for Nelson.
