It's a small motel, only 6 units I think. We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom units and were very happy. It was a good size, tidy and clean, everything we needed. The 1 bedroom units do front the road so there is a little bit of noise, but it's hardly a constant stream of cars going past in... More

Small motel (5 or 6 units) but very well presented, lots of amenities and plenty of room to spread out and relax. Owner Steve is very helpful with information about the town. On site parking is fine and beach is across the road.

Great place to stay at the beach, units are clean and tidy and good value, can't fault a thing. Steve is a great host, so helpful and a credit to the industry. Thanks for a great stay Steve, we will be back for sure!

Great place to stay. Friendly owners, good clean apartment that had everything that we needed. Beach across the road and shops/cafés a short 5 min walk away. Great outdoor area with trampoline and swings for the kids. Would without a doubt stay again.

We like a place with a little room to move around and a lot of kitchen to cook in. Beaches Motel is tops on both accounts, and owner Steve is the icing on the cake. He's helpful, friendly, happy, and accommodating. Knowledgeable about the area too. He recommended what turned out to be a glorious walk to Orokawa Bay. Easy... More

We are self sufficient travellers. If we could find accommodation like this everywhere we went, it would make us very happy. The facilities are great - very well appointed kitchen & plenty of room elsewhere. We highly recommend Beaches Motel.

A chance discovery after driving through then village trying to find somewhere to stay. All the positive comments below are appropriate_ friendly, clean, convenient, comfortable, close to the beach. We received good recommendations for dinner at Flat White Cafe, within walking distance. Cannot speak highly enough of the friendly approach of the owners.

It is not the most modern, nor is it flash and the taps/hot water were installed by someone with a good sense of humor, but from the very first contact to the moment we left I was impressed by the owner, Steve, who had a relaxed style of hospitality but still gave terrific service. The motel s really well sited... More
