Brilliant location, about a 15 min walk to kaiteriteri, and only a few minutes walk to little kaiteriteri. The cabins are all neat and tidy, and there's a good feel about the accomodation. Highly recommend!

Our 2 bedroom Torlesse Motel in Kaiteriteri was by far the best Motel we have ever stayed in. Location, quality, service, size, view we really could not fault anything. We can't wait to go back. Christine was fantastic to deal with.

The Torlesse Motels are a collection of small buildings on a hillside with fully equipped rooms overlooking Tasman Bay. They're part of a residentital neighborhood with an easy walk to Kaiteriteri Beach. The location is perfect for exploring Abel Tasman National Park.

We stayed in Torlesse Motels in 2011 and were so happy with it that we choose it again in our 2nd New Zealand holiday in 2014. In the meantime the owners have changed - but they even improved the place! Owners Christine greeted us upon arrival and she really had done a good job! She knew all the details from... More

Super helpful receptionist will help you get the most out of absolutely gorgeous parts of the island. The room was clean and fully equipped with kitchen supply, iron and even laundry machine. Great for long or short stay. The room also comes with a wonderful view of the ocean and birds singing around you morning and night.

We were very pleased with this accommodation. The room was very clean and it was spacious. The kitchen was complete and well equipped. The spa and bbq were a very big plus for this accommodation, we enjoyed those. The location is perfect, near everything in Kaiteriteri. The staff is very nice and very helpful.

As part of a small tour, we did not choose this hotel but I would return here in a heartbeat. A very short stroll to a gorgeous beach with rocks covered in mussels, stunning roses and other flowers covered the grounds and a lovely view of the sea were welcome extras. Our room was spotless and fully furnished including a... More

Great place to stay, large apartment, clean and quiet. Managers amazing, got home one evening and it was cosy inside as Christine had turned our heat pump on. What a lovely thought to make our stay so pleasant. A beautiful spot close to the lovely bay, cafe, restaurant and all activities. Would definitely stay there again
