We have stayed for 2 nights at Amber Court. It is an an excellent accomodation in Nelson, very clean and tidy, and an excellent base to visit the area. The owners were also very nice and helpful and sent us a jacket we forgot by courier. Recommend *****

This is our favourite motel in Nelson. The rooms are being refurbished, in fact they may all be completed by now. Ours was very nicely furnished with a lovely modern bathroom and very spacious. It's just off the main road so not too noisy, and is situated well for the sun. The car park for each unit is directly outside,...

Stayed here with a group. Really friendly and helpful owners. The rooms are spacious and clean. Even though it's close to a main road it is quiet. Close to good places to eat and a 10 min walk to the beach. Thoroughly recommend

Excellent facilities. Room large n comfortable, best shower n toiletries yet! Loved having small bottle of milk on arrival to make a drink in the room!! Slight traffic noise as on main road into Nelson, but no real issue. A few restaurants down the road in local neighbourhood if arriving late as we did.

I booked one night in the motel as I was passing through andI was picked up at the airport as promised, really useful in the pouring rain! In no time at all I was installed in a comfortable room with everything I needed. There was much useful information available, which helped to make my stay alone perfectly right. My luggage...

Rooms totally comfortable, lots of space and facilities on hand. Very pleasant stay, shower after bush trip was a joy! 15 min walk to Tahunanui beach, bus stop...

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....

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
