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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Very large and light room, wonderful bathroom, great water pressure, better than we ever met in NZ. Friendly host, very close to the beach and lots of places to eat nearby, we opted to cook the 2 nights we were there, and the room has a great place to sit outside. Still dream of the shower, wow the water pressure.... More

Got a special via Jasons Travelers. The place looks new with lovely decore and facilities, modern and very clean. Room had good heating and was warm. We had a studio and it was spacious for a studio.

We stayed 4 nights on our second stay at Beaches Motor Inn. It is a realy superb place. Very modern and clean. So close to resturants, food outlets and close to the beach. Being a sports fun realy loved the Guest Select 50+ CHANNELS with 5 Sports and 2 Racing. GOOD ONE! WE SHALL BE BACK.
