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...

Handy to location, close to the beach, restaurants and handy to town or the other direction to Richmond etc. Clean, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen and we had a lovely spa bath in our apartment. Owners very friendly.

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.

Lovely clean elegant accommodation. Very clean and well presented. Quiet and well located to the beaches and some shops. Great bed (comfortable) and well maintained room. The room felt like home away from home. Well done team.

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. We were greeted by a lovely owner who showed us her studio unit and turned on the heater and electric blanket and was just so...

We love to stay at Beaches - very modern with everything you can need. Great location near Tahinanui Beach, a couple of restaurants and town. The Manager, George, is always friendly and accommodating.

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.

Clean and comfortable, and within walking distance to shops, etc The only gripe really is that an electric blanket didn't work on one of the beds and we stayed in the middle of the winter. A heater in the bathroom would've been a bonus too, for warmth and to prevent the bathroom from misting up. An average two bedroom unit...
