Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed in a studio apartment for 5 nights, had a queen and single bed, plenty of space, separate kitchen area with full oven for cooking, also had a BBQ to use. Has a swimming pool. Loved that we could walk to Tahunanui Beach. The airport is close by and yes there are planes flying over but it is not constant and the noise doesn’t last very long. Free use of washing machine and 3 clothesline’s spread around the complex.

A great place to stay. A hidden gem. The rooms are clean, very reasonable and have plenty of facilities. They are really close to heaps of amenities. The hosts are friendly and super helpful. The swimming pool is fabulous with lots of pool toys to keep the kids entertained. My one minor criticism is the onsite parking is very tight. We had a small car and found it tricky, I imagine parking could be difficult for a larger SUV. I highly recommend if you are after reasonable accommodation in a great location.

The motel was perfect for our family of 6 and had a nice little backyard area for the kids to play in. It’s also a great location close to the beach and fun activities. The owner was very helpful and we’d definitely choose to stay here again.

Super clean and great value! We stayed with our family of 4 in a family unit and thought it was perfectly located for our holiday.

Room was spacious and clean, full kitchen and separate bathroom. Beds comfortable and swimming pool outside… thanks

Run by the nicest couple. The rooms are clean and spacious. They allow guests to use the washer and dryer for free which is nice (the guests however abuse it by overusing it and/or not emptying the machines on time). The beach is just a ten minute walk and so are a handful of nice pubs and restaurants.

Thank you for taking your time to review your stay. We like to make our guests feel comfortable when they stay with us. The guest laundry can be a bit of an issue but we endeavor to monitor it so everybody gets their turn. We are in a good location with the beach and many nice cafes and restaurants handy.

This is a smaller older style family run motel that is extremely spacious and very clean. There is a small pool and free laundry available on-site and the room rate was very reasonable. Although the property is a short drive to town, it is located close to the beach in a quiet area. What makes this motel stand out is the friendliness of the owner. At check in, she spent considerable time explaining what was available in the local area and made suggestions for the remainder or our trip. Old fashioned "above and beyond" service like that is increasingly hard to find.

Conveniently located within walking distance of Tahunanui beach. This is an older motel but perfectly adequate and appropriately priced for what it is. The one bedroom unit was quite small so probably best suited for a one or two night stay if more than two people

The units were old, but well maintained, situated in a quiet area away from the main road. When entering the unit it made me think of my grandmother’s house.
There was a little hallway leading to the kitchen with a glass partition between the kitchen and living area. Chairs, table, couch and comfortable king size bed. One of the heaters was not working and the other one was very noisy. Every day there were fresh towels for us and very kind hosts.
When we stayed it was not busy, but when all units occupied parking might be cramped for all cars.
The motel is situated just a few minutes from the beach and about ten minutes drive by car from Nelson along the coastal road.

Recently stayed one night at Courtesy Court on our way thru to the Marlborough Sounds. For $115 we enjoyed a studio unit which was adequate in size . A large kingsize bed overlooked the lounge area where 2 lazyboy recliners were positioned in front of a medium sized television. Sky television was available offering a suitable selection of channels.

The kitchen and bathroom were both spotless clean and suitably stocked with all that was required for a comfortable stay.

The hotel is within comfortable walking distance to the beach and a relaxing 10 minute drive to the city.

All in all we were very happy with our stay at Courtesy Court Motel and would happily recommend it as a nice place to stay.
