I spent a weekend away in Nelson at Beaches. It's in a great location - 5 minutes from the airport, and walking distance to the beach. The new manager was very welcoming, helping me with what do see and where to go in Nelson. I'll definitely be back :)

We sent some specific instructions with our booking (we gave them 1 month notice of them) and the owner was very obliging and able to meet our request. Thanks - we really appreciated it as that made our stay comfortable and made us feel welcomed. The property is a great base - good parking - and lovely and clean. We...

Stayed here for buisness. Has a room with a spa bath. Close to the road and traffic can keep you awake if you used to quiet. The pressure in the shower is great. Bed is also comfortable. This it the third time staying and recommend this place to all.

We arrived at the Beaches Motor Inn on a wet cold Saturday night, I had the flu and we had been renovating so just felt like a comfortable bed away from the mess at home.

Just wanted a studio for two for one night. we walked in off the street and got a better price than from the www, pays to ask. Nice room, clean & tidy, and far enough from the road as to not hear the street noise The bed was to soft for us, but you cant please everybody.
