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.

Beautiful surroundings and clean accommodations. Hosts were really friendly and helpful. We stayed here for two days and don't want to go to home. It is a place for access to Abel Tasman.We will be back again.

Alan and Lisa go out of their way to make our stopovers in Motueka truly relaxing and peaceful. They pick us up from the local airport at the most unsociable hours which is a huge plus for visiting pilots. The lodge has spacious gardens with pool and spa and the rooms are always spotless and tidy. We can easily walk... More

Right up front I need to confess that this corner of the world is one of my favorite places on the planet. We kayaked here more than a decade ago,and wanted to revisit with our kids for a long time. The equestrian is great because of the open, green space, swimming pool and roomy pleasant rooms. We stayed two nights... More
