“Restful and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had a llovely three nights here. Right from the word go when owners shifted us to a room with a larger bed for my husbands size, to the chocolates on the bed on arrival to friendly farewell when we left our stay was wonderful. Although two kilometres from the town this was not a hindrance to us with our bikes which we used as our transport the whole time in Motueka. Very handy to the salt pool and harbour.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

We stayed in the Motel for 4 nights. The room was very large and in a good condition. The interiour was a little old fashioned, but tidy. The host Earl is very friendly and conciderate. We paid 100 NZ$ per night, an acceptable price for this accomodation.

An excellent value for money motel, ideally located to explore Abel Tasman. An exceptionally clean , well equipped motel. Situated just off the main street, yet with no traffic noise whatsoever. Only 4 motel rooms so little noise from people coming & going. We had a room comprising a single & a double bed, dinng area & sofa, with plenty of room to move around. If I was ever fortunate enough to be in Motueka again I wouldnt hesitate to stay at the Elianse again

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2010

I found this motel in a NZ Motel touring guide. It is centrally located off the main street into Motueka.
The unit we had was quite large and we discovered it was the one adapted for wheelchairs, the other units were as nice but not so 'open' in appearance. Everything was modern and decorated in lovely muted tones of blue ( nothing dull and jaded like some motels can end up). Typical motel layout outside with parking and some seating outside the units. The kitchen area was well equiped with an electric fry pan ( these are very popular in NZ motels) and usual fridge, microwave etc.
The shower room was very large due to design for wheelchair users. There was also a laundry at the end of the block, which guests could use for free-just pay for washing powder and tokens for dryer or use washing line out the back. The owners were very friendly. Shame we only had 1 night.

We visited Motueka as a base to explore the Abel Tasman national park in Dec 08. We paid $90 a night for a unit in the Elianse and it was perfect. The unit was huge and absolutely spotless throughout. We had a very comfortable queen bed and the living area contained a sofa bed. There are only four units so very quiet and a great place to chill after a day of kayaking or tramping. The owners Ann and Earl are so friendly and we would definitely stay there again if we ever return to the area.
