We really enjoyed our stay in Motueka Garden Motel. The owners were helpful and friendly and the room was perfect for us. We were hiking and kayaking in Abel Tasman Park and stayed for 2 nights before the kayaking began. Even when we had an inquiry after the stay, we were contacted immediately to answer our question.

Great to find this motel, from the look of the outside I probably would have driven past, but recommended to Garden Motel as I needed somewhere to stay with my dog. Rooms are basic yet everything you need is here, good grounds, under cover parking, clean and tidy, even peppermints in a wee bowl in the kitchen. Great size seperate... More

The room was very clean and comfortable with full kitchen. The units are situated away from the road so no noise. The reception person was very friendly and helpful. The unit had a carport which would be useful in the winter.

We arrived late in Motueka and decided to make a booking at the i centre, we were shown an image of a two bedroom unit at the Motueka Garden Motel and booked it on that basis. When we arrived the two bedroom unit we were shown was dated and very tired looking, the sofa arms were split and the seats... More

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.

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
