Well I guess they say, 'You get what you pay for'. It was pretty average at best. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean but could have done with some decent bedding on the bed. Very dated and the duvet cover had moons and stars on it - felt a little unprofessional especially since it... More

A very comfortable 8 nights at the Greens Motel with a large group of 16. We were there for a golf event, so the location, right on the boundary of the fantastic Nelson Golf Club, was perfect. Plus it was only a short drive into Nelson CBD or Richmond. Excellent sized rooms, clean and tidy, very good value. The owner... More

Stayed here a couple of nights whilst I rand out and did sales calls in the area, it was a good base. The rooms were clean and spacious. The area was quiet, apart from the odd plane landing but you would have to be really sensitive to let that bother you! (The airport is closed between 10pm-7am so it doesn't... More

The rooms were comfortable but the shower drainage wasn't working well and wasn't draining off as fast as it should. The wifi connection was much to be desired and as we were only there for 1 night, did not let that affect our stay. It was a warm night and we needed some ice, but the manager was not very... More

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.

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.

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.

Particularly the bathroom was not very clean and... More
