We stayed for 2 nights in this motel. The motel unit was very roomy and clean with comfortable beds. However this accommodation is definitely past it's use by date. The carpet on the floor is smudged and worn and so are the curtains. The bathroom is really old and the kitchen would not be out of place on a camp... More

It's always hard finding a place that will take our small dog, and we drove past Golden Bay Motel at first, because from the street it looked a bit old and tired. However, a lady at Takaka's Tourist Information Office recommended it.....and how right she was. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and the motel unit turned out to be... More

A quiet motel in Takaka with a beautiful garden off the patio. We returned here because we liked it very much last time we stayed here. The kitchen is a real kitchen, with everything you need and a full sized fridge....great for a family. We were in the two bedroom unit so the parents got a bit of quiet space... More

Arrived at the Motel Easter holidays. Had been promised a room suitable for 3 adults. The room was small & the bedroom was little more than a cubicle in the room with a metre gap around the top of the walls. Ventilation I presume. We left & found suitable rooms elsewhere. We telephoned & advised that we would not need... More

I booked a night here at the last minute in the Easter Holidays, on the way to a tent site elsewhere in golden bay. I must admit there was not much choice and I was looking for a good price. I found that...a reasonable priced motel. But I was very pleased with the lovely facilities. The living area looks out... More

Our tramping party occupied 2 units for one night before completing the Heaphy Track. Found these units to be adequate for a little town. Had everything we needed, were spacious enough, clean and enjoyed the BBQ. Nice and central to the township and friendly hosts. Would recommend and would stay here again.

My husband and I were very warmly welcomed by our host. The motel unit was nice and roomy, and clean. The one major thing that let it down was the bed. I believe the bed was definitely past it's use by date.
