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.

Highly recommend this property. Excellent, spacious and clean accommodation. All amenities including Tahunanui Beach within short walking distance. Jacqui and Glen, the owners, are such lovely people with a very focused customer service in mind. Nothing was too much trouble for them and served us so well with a smile. We loved staying here and will definitely be returning in the future.

Family of 4 stayed for 5 days. Apartment was absolutely spotless. Jackie, the manger, went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay… contacting tour providers to book trips in Golden Bay and she even did 2 loads of washing for us, dried it and left it folded in our room. An absolute star…thank you. Motel is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from Tahuna beach. Lots of places to eat nearby… bakery and 2 fantastic pubs serving food. Would highly recommend this place to anyone staying im the area

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The front office manager was a delight and went above and beyond. We got ourselves in a jam to catch our outbound flight, and she got everything sorted out. She also worked with us on arrival to find room locations that worked for us. The rooms were clean, and the manager even made sure we had bottles of cold milk in case we wanted to make coffee or tea. We would definitely stay here again.

After staying in 6 other accomodation types over the previous 10 days, this last was exceptional, so close to being number 1 . This was a 1 bedroom unit one back from the busy main road - but double glazing puts paid to that. Very spacious, wonderful bathroom with a spa bath and bath salts ! Good little kitchenette with a dishwasher! Very comfortable bed, and a big screen TV with all the necessary streaming apps. Close to the beach, the Smugglers pub across the road - yum. And a few minutes drive into town. Top place.

Well-located close to Tahunanui and Nelson this property is very-well presented and with very nice hosts. The suites are spacious with good kitchen and lounge facilities. Great location as there are restaurants/cafes/takeaways/bars etc nearby and it's a quick walk to the beach. There was no noticeable street noise.

We stayed with friends in one bedroom apartments after a 3 day walk and kayak in the Abel Tasman. It was the perfect choice with spacious, exceptionally clean rooms and a super friendly host. You were made to feel so welcome from the moment you arrived. The rooms were really great and the spa bath was enormous. Great location as there are restaurants/cafes/takeaways/bars etc all along the street and it's a quick walk to the beach. The beds were really comfy and there was no street noise. I would definitely stay again.

Hosts who know the meaning of hospitality! Very welcoming and ensured everything was as it should be. Cleanliness and everything as you would want it. Kitchen all good. Bathroom the same. Bed was a 4 on scale of 1 - soft, 10 - hard. 2 large pillows per person. Slept well.

We had a car breakdown in Takaka and after a stressful day being towed to Nelson looked for somewhere to stay. Wayne and Deb were wonderful and kind, and the room was very clean, quiet and well appointed with a very comfortable Ed and two massive tvs. The spa bath was just what we needed as well! We used the laundry and after we came back from our walk along the beach discovered that Deb had brought it back to our room and hung it for us! We have stayed in all manner of places in different countries and the experience we had a Beaches in Nelson is one of the best ever. Not just for the room itself, but mostly for the wonderful hosts.
