We happened on this motel quit by accident and could not have been more pleased. We have stayed in about 29 different motels and resorts in our 35 days in New Zealand and this is the best we have found. Only a 2 minute walk to anything in Takaka and the Hosts have been great.

Our family of five stayed in two rooms, the double room in particular was very generous in space allowing a larger family to feel more at home. All the rooms were very clean, with very comfortable beds and good showers and generally well appointed. The location is great, being situated at the top of town, so walking into town was... More

We stayed here in mid-February, as a base to explore Abel Tasman National Park, and Farewell Spit. We were greeted warmly, and showed a few places of interest on the map, which was really helpful, even though we had both been to Golden Bay area before.

Mohua motel is modern, clean, well managed and friendly, well placed on the Edge of Takaka Main Street. Takaka is an ideal base from which to explore the marvellous Golden Bay Area. Especially recommend Rawhiti beach
