Is also very easy to find on the main street. Hosts were friendly and gave us a choice of rooms as had noticed our request for a quiet room. Would recommend... More

While we reserved a room with king size bed on arrival 15 minutes later we were told no king size beds are available. After further conversation, the king size room was located and we took it (room... More

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.

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

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.
