We arrived late in the day due to weather as we could not get across Cook strait. A room was quickly found for us. We wanted to know if there was anyone in town that could deliver takeaways as we had no car. The owner gave us the keys to his car and off we went. We put some fuel... More

My wife and I travelled from ChCh to Motueka for a wedding and our four night stay was booked for us by a friend who lived in the very pretty town. On our arrival we pushed the bell at the entrance to the office but this obviously did not work so rung the hand bell on the counter. After some... More

Reminding us of a small Pontins camp straight from the early 1960s, this very basic accommodation was just about okay - it seemed clean and everything worked. For children there are good grassy areas, a playground and even a small pool. Decent free WiFi. Decent pre-order breakfast, toaster and microwave.

We only spent one night here because we had been unable to find online somewhere closer to Marahau where our son and his wife were living. The hotel is on a quiet side street a longish walk from the town centre – not a problem if you have a car but might be a consideration if you don't or want... More

Lots of space for the money. Nothing fancy. If you are looking for something a little upscale, this isn’t the place for you. The owners live on the premises. Great location if you are planning to do activities in Abel Tasman National Park. Free wifi.

I can see from other reviews that there are presumably many rooms which offer a good standard but my partner and I had the misfortune to get a one bedroom unit that was so dated and old in its furniture and fittings that although it was clean it looked and felt grubby. We were there for a couple of days... More

Motueka doesn't have a lot of accommodations so the choice is quite limited if you are planning an Abel Tasman hike or kayak. This motel is really set up for families, so the spacious rooms, the swimming pool and the picnic tables are great for kids and parents wanting good value stays. For couples, it doesn't have a lot to... More

We were disappointed we were not booked into accommodation it Nelson however, we travelled the 30 km to Motueka and what a surprise we had. We were greeted at reception with a welcoming conversation and taken to our room. While the Motel looks old and in need of an upgrade from the outside, the interior was inviting, modern and well...

Well maintained and clean 60's construction motel with childrens playground, pool and lots of open grassed areas. Laundry with free washing machine was a bonus - if you can time your loads between the motel's own towel washing. An adequate kitchen to keep you fed for a few days. Whilst there were electric blankets, there was no sign of any... More

A great family run motel! So well equipped and beautifully fitted out! This little motel was a gem of a find! We stayed 2 days and could not have asked for better accommodation! It was spotlessly clean and smartly decorated! The owners were were very accommodating! We highly recommend this motel!
