I was, admittedly quite sadly, over excited when my husband told me we were staying at the Equestrian Lodge as I thought I would be spending two nights in an Anna Sewell novel. When we arrived, there were no horses and I was quite disappointed. Add to the fact that my 16 week old son was losing it in the... More

This is my second review of the equestrian lodge, I have holidayed here often over the last 14 years. Alan and Lisa have a clear commitment to providing a quality service. Our room was fresh and spotlessly clean. Beds are new and bedding appears to have been updated, all clean and fresh. No bad back during this motel stay! Kitchens... More

Wow that's a bold statement! Thank you very much for the review, we really appreciate it as we do all our reviews. There's not a lot I can say about this review, I don't think anyone could ask for more. The only thing that concerns me is that you mentioned staying in Noosa for the last few years - if... More

We only stayed one night in Equestrian Lodge but had a lovely stay. Alan and Lisa are great hosts - they clearly love what they do. We really enjoyed our time - including their restaurant recommendation. Rooms are simple but spacious and well equipped. Great base ahead of our trip into Abel Tasman.

Can't speak highly enough of this place. Stayed here twice and always so clean. Owners are so friendly and can't do enough for you. Lovely spacious grounds with spa and pool. Lovely start each year to our camping holiday in golden bay.

This motel was delightful. The unit was very large and very clean. The grounds were very nice and the pool was a favourite of the kids. The location was excellent with supermarket nearby but no traffic noise. We would stay here again . Highly recommend.

This is a perfect place to stay. The owners are super friendly, the rooms are spacious clean and have everything you wished for. Even the wifi is pretty fast. The huge garden is an absolute gem! If you have the chance, book this place!

We stayed for 4 nights and were very happy with the lodge and the friendly and helpful owners. It was very clean and the stuff very friendly. It´s just a short walk from city center. To start to the Able Tasman it´s a great stay...We can recommand that Motel to everyone else.

We stayed here for 1 night in a two bedroom before going to Abel Taskman national park. After a long drive from Picton, we were greeted warmly by owner Lisa and she even showed us all the way to our room. Upon entering the room we were instantely impressed by how clean and well presented the rooms were. Although it... More

Quite the best motel we have ever found in NZ, with friendly and very helpful owners, beautiful setting in effectively a botanical garden with pool, comfortable and spacious rooms with particularly well appointed bathrooms, and great location in relation to Motuepa, shops and coast. If I have to find a fault ... the mugs were a little on the small... More
