We actually live in Nelson and LOVE going to stay at Beaches, it has been our home away from home three times as our own home has been uninhabital. We choose to go back there over anywhere else in nelson. The owner is friendly and always goes out of his way to ensure we are comfortable, the rooms and facilities i cannot fault at all and for a family to be able to come home to the motel and unwind and relax in the in room spa that is big enough for the three of us (two adults and toddler) is highly enjoyable. Thanks for taking such great care of us.

Room Tip: being in a main road, the rooms towards the back of the complex are alot quiter, but we ended up in...

Last night of a two week trip around the South Island brought us to Nelson. Our stay was at the Beaches Motor Inn and what a gem of a place. It is new and ultra modern. The rooms are large and well appointed with every feature you require. A real credit to the owners. Highly recommended.

We stayed here in Dec. 2013 for a few nights and thoroughly enjoyed this Motel.
The staff are friendly but not intrusive at all, which was lovely after coming from a Motel in another town where we felt the need to leave early each day for servicing.

We stayed two units back from the Main Road, and did not notice the traffic so much. It was no problem at all. The only issue is the walk in shower, there is a need to be careful if you don't pull the shower curtain as the whole bathroom gets wet and you have to be careful not to slip. When we worked out what we had done wrong there was no further problem.

This Motel is in a good location, and you can walk to the beach easily.

It was very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: I think Unit 2 is very good for anyone needing a downstairs unit with a walk in shower.

I ended up overnighting in Nelson, due to a flight disrupt. After a long day at the airport we found this gem of a place. The host was friendly and the rooms were really clean,tidy and quiet - with lots of little extras, plunger coffee, lollies etc. Well above expectations for the rate they charged. Highly recommend this place, a great location near to the Tahunanui beach and the nearby restaurants.

Based on a 1 night stay, we can only recommend this place. It is clean, the rooms are large, light and airy(our was anyway), and all rooms have a patio or balcony. We were on the side of the hotel so there was a little road noise, although this disappeared as the traffic got lighter later in the evening. Staff were very helpful and thanks to George for helping us upstairs with our large cases. Good wifi too and walking distance to the beach and eating places/bars

Recently stayed for 2 nights with overseas friends in a 2 bedroom unit. Very spacious,clean and comfortable with all amenities. Helpful and courteous owners and staff. On busy main road but didn't notice too much road noise.Motel was full and a bit of "people" noise at night. Would recommend to anyone not wanting CBD.
