Paul greeted us with a wealth of local knowledge and was VERY helpful in planning our stay. We had a two bed unit with a kitchen area/dining area. All VERY clean and kept so tidy. VERY close to town for all Takaka has to offer ( Which is ALOT more than most people realise! Just come over Takaka Hill and... More

The Mohua Motels is a quiet and easy place to stay and explore the remote Takaka region. The rooms are comfortable and it was pretty easy to get moved to a room with a king size bed. the motel is comfortable and clean without being spectacular, and the wifi speed was amongst the best we have found in the shakey...

After 5 nights camping in AT this was exactly what we needed! Unbelievably clean and brilliant bathroom, great kitchen, supermarket just over road, plenty of space for kit drying and washing facilities were good too. Perfect. Nice owner too!

This was a lovely motel to stay in while exploring the area. The room was well-equipped and comfortable - we were able to cook our own dinner in the kitchen area (small cooker, but sufficient for our needs). The manager of the motel was very good in that we were leaving early on a Sunday morning and he opened up... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the place was fantastic. The gentleman who checked us in was brilliant helping with information and advice on what to do in the timeframe we had, along with what interested us. The room was clean, tidy and really spacious... And the kitchenette was decent and useable. Additionally, the cleaning staff were super... More

We had a two bedroom unit at the far end of the complex. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. It has a nice outlook to the back area where you can sit and have breakfast. Only a couple of minutes walk to town and eateries. One comment only is that the beds are little too soft... More

The gent who runs the place was very helpful upon our check in, giving us information on where we should visit during our stay. Our room was cleaned and bed made daily (I can never arrange the multiple layers of sheets correctly), use of BBQ area available and laundry on site which was handy. The jet bath was great, view...

Good bathroom facilities, large double spa bath but with very small sink. Stayed here for two nights but the bed was not made up for the second night. Good location - easy walk to shops and eateries. Let down by poor sleep quality in unit 14. Noise from air conditioners on outside wall next to room.

My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights here and we initially weren't really sure what we should do for the two days we were in the Golden Bay however on arrival we were given plenty of information by the helpful and friendly staff which cleared it up for us. We booked early so we got to choose an upstairs... More

This is one of the most clean and organized place we have ever stay at. The beds are comfortable and the towels are soft and fluffy, the kitchen is very well equip and on top of that the view is beautifull. The position of the motels could not be better just on the entrance to town and a short walk... More
