The owners of the Equestrian are the most hospitable people I have come across if there is anything you need they were more than happy to help! The beds are lovely and comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make your meals in the comfort of your own room. The bathroom is stocked with some... More

What a lovely spot and the owners couldn't have been more helpful or kind. Our Studio unit was huge, pleasant and a very comfy bed. My only issue would be that the native birds woke me early with their dawn chorus - but what a way to be woken :-)

We just have spent two nights at the Equestrian Lodge Motel and we would like to come back in the summer time. Excellent location, perfectly quiet. Our son enjoyed playing outside in the garden and jumping on trampoline. Very friendly and welcoming owners Alan and Lisa. We love travelling and this place is one of the tidiest and friendliest place... More

We stay here whenever we are in Motueka and we would not stay anywhere else. A great location close to town and the facilities both inside the units and outside are tops. A great outdoor setting which would do well in any garden competition. Great hosts and we would recommend the Equestrian to anyone travelling to Motueka.

Spent the night here while exploring the area. Excellent location and perfectly quiet. Had a great night's sleep on some super-comfortable beds. Temp reliever was awesome as were owners upon their return. We spent an extra $5 dollars (normally $8) to use the spa for 25 minutes - was fantastic way to wind down the evening - last session (which... More

Have just spent four nights at the Equestrian Lodge Motel and we were very impressed with the whole facility. Having tried other accommodation in this area over the past five years this would have to be the cleanest, tidiest, friendliest place we have stayed. First class unit with everything you could need and serviced daily. Found heating to be rather... More

My wife and I stayed two nights and couldn't fault it. Close to town, nearby brewery and wineries and also Abel Tasman N.P. The unit was quiet, clean and spacious with good heating and a sunny aspect keeping it warm. The hosts were a young English couple and they went out of their way to ensure our visit was thoroughly...

Great friendly service. A lovely place to stay. One if the cleanest rooms I've stayed in. The buildings are 70s era but have been well modernized. Big park like ground which our 2 boys loved running around in. Would happily come back.
