Our accommodation was clean quiet and spacious, we were very pleased with the room and the people were very pleasant.. Although this accommodation only had a microwave it was useful as we were tired of resturant food almost ever day. It was a little way from shops.

My favourite place in South Island. Owners really helpful and nice. All rooms well equiped. Rooms big and clean. Kitchen had everything what was needed. Nice common area in front of the rooms. Free Wifi. Good value for the money you pay.

1. Check in was fast. 2. We were in a corner spa 1x bedroom unit. It was closed to the main road so was fairly noisy with traffic all night. 3. The unit was clean and sufficient for a family of 4. Beds were comfortable. However we request 2 queen beds but were not made up when we arrived. 4.... More

Very much enjoyed our stay. We had a one bedroom suite. Very clean with a comfortable layout. The owner was very helpful. Laundry room was very convenient. The hotel is easy to find and a convenient base for our visit to Abel Tasman. Close to beach and a few good restaurants

Very clean and comfortable older style of motel. Good location for what we needed, but a few kilometres out of the city. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They rang us when we had left something behind. Quiet despite being on a main road. Would stay again.

This was our first visit to Nelson. Amber Court was very homely, clean ( I loved the bathroom) and the owners were so pleasant and helpful. It was quite hot when we arrived, so not too much trouble to supply is with a fan for our room. We were there as a family group as our daughter was getting married... More

Clean, tidy, spaceous, comfortable. The kitchenette with portable appliances was very practical and enabled us to do all we wanted – I believe this motel would have served us even better, if we could have stayed longer than two nights. The Location too, is surprisingly 'central' (even by foot); central to Nelson's activities without staying in the CBD! The laundry,... More

Spent two nights. A very clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped room. The host was very friendly and helpful. Good location, near beach and only a short drive to centre of town. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.
