Our room was beautiful with a full kitchen. Everything was stylish and comfortable and the room was immaculate. We had everything we needed and were so comfortable we decided to stay a second night. The Mohua is right at the edge of Takaka and all the shops are within walking distance, including a full supermarket right across the street. I... More

Enjoyed a very pleasant, relaxing stay here over Easter 2015. Excellent amenities, including free wi-fi, clean new rooms with quality furnishings & decor, a very comfortable bed, and private patio with a stunning view of the Takaka hills. Located at the entrance to Takaka township, easy walking distance to restaurants, bars & cafes, where I enjoyed the most delicious local... More

This is quite a new motel complex on the edge of town but still within easy walking distance to the centre of town. There is good parking and we had a downstairs studio unit. The decor is pleasing, plenty of room, and overlooks farm land rather than other motel rooms or houses, The internet is reliable and fast and allows... More

A fantastic place to stay. We have stayed here twice in the last three weeks. Fantastic welcoming staff, awesome facilitates, comfy beds, great kitchenette and the best shower's Ive had a motel! Our room was quite close to the road so trucks woke us up in the night but over all, cant complain.

The room was modern, well equipped, and fitted out with good quality furnishings. There was a pleasant balcony. Bed was extremely comfortable. Everything needed... More

Hello DCM821, Thank you for your 'Quality Accommodation' review of Mohua Motels. The hosepipe and sponge was used by many with the weather being as dry as it was. We look forward to welcoming you back to Mohua Motels maybe sometime in the future. More

We looked for somewhere to stay in Takaka and came across this motel. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. The room we stayed in was large, well equipped, immaculately clean and overlooked fields at the back. The bathroom was huge and included a spa bath. We received a good welcome and our request to book out... More

Located directly next to an iSite and across from a super market, this was a real find. We had a second floor unit overlooking a cornfield with a mountain vista in the distance. There was a patio, AC, flat screen TV, free unlimited WIFI, up-to-date decor, a very large comfy chair, a queen bed, and single bed. The room was... More
