The manager was very helpful, gave us tips of what to do in the Golden Bay and helped us get some clothes we left behind back. The only negative thing was, we only had... More

We were really happy with Mohua Motels. Our room as great - modern, clean & well appointed. The motel is a two minute walk from the supermarket and cafes, such a great location. The manager was very helpful with info about activities in the area & was able to help us order a taxi.

Very unbderstated. A great wecome and the nice little touch of a bottle of milk to take to your room. The room was spacious and very clean. It had everything you could wish for. A spacious fridge, hob and microwave. The beds were comfy and spacious. I would most definitly recommend this motel

Best studio unit we have ever stayed in. Spacious, clean, stylish, friendly host and handy to shops etc Loved staying there. We will be back. Takaka is central to so many activities. Shops have something for everyone and priced reasonably.

I stayed two nights in this excellent motel. It was roomy, clean, modern, new and the bed was very comfortable. Nice fluffy towels too! The sliding doors opened to a nice deck with view of a cornfield, a sea of green. On arrival I was warmly welcomed and afterwards the very friendly lady took me to Takaka Airport, early in... More

I needed a central and reasonably priced place to stay one night as Mum and I had to attend a funeral :( It was the perfect choice as very well located, central, yet not in the middle of shops and restaurants, which helped us have a quiet evening after an emotional afternoon. It was very useful that they lent us... More
