We had two nights in Motueka and after having traveled from Wellington on the first day it was nice to arrive in a comfortable place. The pool was right near our room, which made cooling down and relaxing easy.

Spacious, well equipped unit with carport, in large lovely garden setting. Friendly hosts and most obliging. Came for 3 days and stayed for nine! Excellent value and a great base for the Tasman region. Would stay again and recommend to all.

Awesome friendly hosts, very clean and comfortable unit . Set back from the road so very quiet at night. Would definitely recommend and would come back . Each unit has its own carport and outdoor seating area.

Really enjoyed our stay at this motel - the rooms were lovely, good sized, very clean and the owners were really friendly and helpful. They were a great help when deciding what attractions to see nearby! Would definitely stay there again!

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
