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

Decided to take some time traveling around NZ and when I was up at Golden Bay, I booked in with this Motel. From the start the experience was wonderful, the people were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was 5 stars. It was spotless and had a really good feel about it. I would recommend this place to anyone... More

We stayed at the Mohua Motel the night after taking the Interislander Ferry from the North Island. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The room had a kitchenette and air conditioning which were a nice change from the other places we had stayed on our trip. The free wifi was great! The only con was that the bed was... More

We spent three weeks travelling round New Zealand and this accomodation was the best we had. Very nice room with a small kitchen and modern bathroom. 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

Firstly, overall this Motel was modern and well positioned, close to the thick of things on the outskirts of Takaka. We spent 5 nights as a major part of our stay whilst we toured the awesome Golden Bay. On the down side, there was an external heat pump fan unit immediately outside and off to the right of our balcony.... More

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
