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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I never leave reviews but need to for Beaches Suites, as it is so wonderful. I picked it for its location for our family holiday in Nelson, but was delighted with the quality of our apartment. The blankets on the beds are pure wool; there is a filtered water tap in the kitchen for drinking water; the windows are double-glazed; the toiletries and bathroom are high quality with great water pressure and the kitchen is thoughtfully appointed - there's a proper-sized plunger, organic coffee, biscuits and proper tea! Our children loved the big bath and the novelty of Sky TV, with all the channels. A great place to return to after a big day out and really kind, lovely hosts too.

Had 2 nights here recently when down for a wedding, off street parking, extremely clean rooms, everything you need for a stay was provided- don't think I've seen a bathroom with so many extras like bath salts, hand and body lotion etc. While we didn't cook great cooking facilities too, balcony with views which got lots of sun.
Really friendly staff and so close to beach, town etc.
Definitely worth 5 *

We were a group of 9 and stayed at Beaches for 5 nights over Christmas. We would definitely recommend this motel - it ticked all the boxes! We had 5 rooms and they were all top notch in terms of decor, facilities, cleanliness and comfort. The super friendly hosts went out of their way to make sure we were well set up for spending Christmas day at the motel. We were a short walk to restaurants, takeaways and the lovely Tahunanui Beach. We ranged in age from 18 to 85 and everybody was thrilled with our stay! We will definitely stay at the Beaches again!

I stayed here for a work trip (bonus that I'm a working parent and get some rest and relaxation whilst missing the kids, haha). I really enjoyed staying here as I was given one of the recently updated suites. I really like that the toiletries are NZ made and use recycled packaging. The tea and coffee sachets were good quality and I've had before so I know they tasted good. There's Netflix, Disney Plus and Prime Video which was great. Really central to Tahunanui so all the eateries is walking distance. Bathroom large and clean, bed was huge and comfy. I'd definitely stay here again. Great hospitality from the manager also.

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 were warmly welcomed by Wayne and his wife. We loved the location of the Motel, close to many eateries, and the beach. It was a central location - 10 minutes into downtown Nelson, and 10 minutes to Richmond.

The room was perfect for our family - fully equiped for a comfortable stay. I did enjoy having Sky TV in the bedroom as well - what a treat ! Also the wonderful spa bath in the room. 4 nights wasnt quite enough. Highly recommend. Thank you again

We stayed for 2 nights this week. The location is good, close to the beach and 10 minute drive to the town centre. Almost all nelson accommodation is on the road, we were in room 307, which was quiet. The owners are very helpful. Our unit has a kitchen. Only downside is that the room smelt if cigarette smoke, despite the no smoking rule.

Ask the owners for their suggestions of places to visit.

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 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.
