We stayed here 2 nights. On the backsite of the room is a really big general lawn (with a brand new barbecue which we did not use) And pleasant trees that gave the shade we needed (it was 30 degrees) You get 500MB free wifi and a wifi which is really broadband. At 10 dollars you get everything for a... More

We stayed here overnight while going to Abel Tasman park. Rooms and grounds are spacious, amenities worked (including internet). Free laundry and lots of space to dry on clothesline. What's not to like? Nothing important, just the grounds while spacious are dry, parched, and no special care has been taken with them. Not a problem, but we had more memorable... More

Great to find a real motel not concrete jungle. Older style but our room had been modernized and was perfect size for us - one bedroom unit. Nice view out to lawn area which was great for sitting out. Good to see families playing cricket out back. Owners friendly and we used the pool daily.

Stayed 2 nights in one of the original little units. Loved the "old style" of a carport for each unit and two cooking hobs as well as a microwave. This was a no frills unit but had everything you would want and the main thing being it had a comfy bed and was spotlessly clean, lovely and sunny with out... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Really liked it. Very close to Abel Tasman national park. I liked that there was a separate kitchen/ sitting room and bedroom. Kitchen was decent- good cooking facilities. It was very clean. The owners were really friendly. The wifi was free- login with a voucher code. I would recommend it. Out of all the golden... More

A clean and comfortable Motel, no frills but have everything we needed. Travelling with a dog can be difficult but we were welcomed and felt that our medium sized dog was included in that welcome. Very comfortable bed and good information in regards to dining willingly offered. Large area for exercising pets and their owners!

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.
