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

Visiting New Zealand with another couple we happened upon the Torlesse Motel. We were able to get one of the larger apartments that was perfect for the 4 of us. We had a nice kitchen and lovely deck with a view. It is situated on a quiet street and a great location close to the Abel Tasmin Reserve. Most important... More

Stayed here with my parents for a couple of days and the apartments are just awesome. Wake a up and have breakfast with ocean views in the morning! We will recommend this place to everybody who'll visit the area. The wifi-allowance is a bit on the low side, but hey - it's fee.

The apartment itself was very big and all equipment was very good quality including all kitchen things. We also had some nice chat with the very friendly owner and the price we payed was really very good if... More

The owners were very helpful and friendly. From Little K we walked u and over the small bluff to Kaiteriteri Beach and took the Sands and Seals boat trip to Tonga... More

We enjoined the friendly welcome and the hints about the best local places to visit for a meal and sightseeing. Very quite and peaceful at Little Kaiteretere Beach. Its a short stroll along the beach and over the hill from the busier holiday camping ground, café and visitor information spots

Thankyou for taking the time to comment about your stay here..We are in a little pocket of New Zealand paradise and so close the the Golden Beach and Abel Tasman National park walks. Most of our units have sea views but the upper level ones have the very best views. Maybe we will see you back in Kaiteriteri in the... More
