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...

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.

It is obvious the proprietors of this motel are sticklers for detail. The owners were away during our stay but the fill-in manager and her husband were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are absolutely spotless, beautifully decorated, and well-equipped. This is a great place to stay.

This motel has jacuzzi in the bath tub which is very nice. My children love it very much, and this has become one of the favorite motel during our 2 weeks vacation. The surrounding are very cozy, and the property itself is extremely clean. Outstanding.

After nearly two weeks travelling around the South Island we managed to find a night at this motel. While some aspects are a little dated we really loved: - the size of the one bedroom room - compared to some other places we stayed in it was huge and great value for money!!! - the milk that came in a...
