The motel is modern, quiet, comfortable and well appointed. The owners are welcoming and helpful and there rates are very reasonable. They are only a hop, skip and jump away from town for food and sigjt seeing and provide good information on what is available in the area. I highly recommend this motel to anybody traveling to Goldern Bay.

Had a most wonderful stay here early December. Was one of our most memorable stays of a seven week stay in New Zealand. Loved the Golden Bay area and loved this Motel. This area has everything one could want. Beaches, restaurants, fishing and great touring which we thoroughly enjoyed with the help of Lenaire and Paul. Wished we could have... More

Lovely clean motel with contemporary decor. We were upstairs in the north facing side, so had an outlook onto a paddock (no neighbours). As other contributors have stated, in a good location near the supermarket and also the petrol station. Hosts were very nice and helpful, even allowed us to clean our cars in the forecourt. The laundry was great,... More

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to review Mohua Motels. Mohua Motels is ideally situated and fortunate to be at the entrance of Takaka Township with the supermarket across the road but still have the rural outlook without the neighbours on our side. Great to look out over the paddocks. Regards Lenaire. More

Once you have decided you don't want to hop from place to place to see all you can from the Southern Island - this hotel in the Golden Bay is ideal to stay in for a while. We had booked 11 days from sheer exhaustion, travelling around on the North Island, without knowing what to expect ... and it was... More

Really great place to explore Golden Bay. Good sized and comfortable rooms, and helpful owners – pointing us to really good places to visit. Great location on outskirts of Takaka, a short walk to everywhere in the town. I would highly recommend Mohua Motels.

We were two couples touring New Zealand together, staying in 10 different motels and Mohua was the best of the trip. The unit was spacious, spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished. It was very well equipped, down to a dishwasher and use of a barbecue. Other reviewers have mentioned noise but we found it very peaceful and were unaware of road... More
