We stayed in these motels many years ago and were impressed by the beach setting so decided to revisit Pohara. We were not disappointed by the motels again (only the weather!!). The beach front setting is lovely and the motel was very comfortable. A wonderful place to stay for a nice peaceful break.

We chose this motel because they had a good Grabone deal and we wanted a nice location to have some time out! We were upgraded to a beachfront unit and being winter, not many people about so was nice and quiet. The unit was well-stocked with everything you can think of and is walking distance to some reasonably-priced restaurants. The... More

The surroundings play a huge part in this review of course - Pohara Beachfront Motel is right on the beach, and oh what a beach. The owners were lovely and friendly and even though we had booked their cheapest room, they gave us a better one because they had one available and they had decided to no longer let their... More

Of all the places our group stayed on South Island this was the best all around. The rooms were all clean and well appointed. Nothing extraordinary, just very nice and completely adequate. The view of the Bay both day and night was a memorable experience. The local eateries were like most we found in NZ, very good! The AC remote... More

This was the highlight of a trip to the South Island, with stays in several locations. Hosts are superb, and the motel units are located right by the beachfront - in a quiet cul-de-sac. Peaceful The units are tastefully decorated, every need met. Reasonably priced. Great furnishings, quality bedding and attractive art work on walls. Extremely clean. Located near great... More

Our chalet was on the front overlooking the Bay with lovely views and sunsets over the water. Spotlessly clean and well appointed this was a great place to stay and recharge our batteries whilst travelling around... More
