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.

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.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.Thank you for mentioning that the plane's aren't very noise after living here for three year I have got use to the noise.Glad to hear people who only stay a short time don't notice them either.

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...

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.

Nice and clean. Beautiful spot. Close to tahunanui beach and restaurants. Great value too. Staff were helpful but also kept away so you had privacy. They were very easy to deal with too. Will definitely be choosing to stay again.

I quite liked the industrial design; it is clean, quiet and and close to the beach. But in one respect I have never encountered a motel quite like it before: there are little typed notices saying that anyone cooking 'smelly food' will be charged a cleaning fee; that hitting the orange button on the TV remote will result in a...

ManagerGreensMotel, Owner at Greens Motel Nelson, responded to this review

This is your interpretation of the notices. These are used as guilds to inform guest to ask for help before trying to fix things as our TV's are not user friendly for motels.Without the notice we where fixing TV's every day and this was very time consuming.We do understand this is not the guest fault we had purchased very complicated...

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....

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!

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...
