Stayed here with family of 5. Two bedrooms and bed settee. Accommodation was spotless with a fantastic view from the balcony. It was a flying visit but we could have stayed a lot longer. The area has so much to see and do. Would like to return one day.

I would just like to say that our stay for 1 night here was lovely.Nothing was too much trouble for Christine and she was a lovely person.There is a 2 minute walk to one of the nicest little quiet beaches>Little Kaikerikeri. The walk along the beach at dusk is so serene and apparently there are penguins there sometimes too.The motel... More

Our room was beautiful & clean with a nice view, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated the in-room washing machine and complimentary detergent. We would have liked to stay longer.

We stayed at the Torlesse Motels for three nights. The hosts were fantastic, offering plenty of information about restaurants and things to do, also turned on our heater for us on a very cold evening when we were out so came back to a lovely warm room. The motels are very clean and well equipped. Would definitely stay again.

We recently stayed one night. Had ground floor unit which I think might be their cheaper option. Nothing wrong with it though. Is very roomy, much larger than most motel units. Well equipped and nice and clean. Close to action at Kaiteriteri. We would happily stay there again. Highly recommended from us.

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Recommended tours and activities as we hadn't booked anything in advance. I picked this motel for its location as we wanted to venture to see the Abel Tasman National Park. It was max 10 minutes walk from where the ferries left (although you could drive and park if you wanted to). Lovely views from sea... More

We were a group of 9 people cycling around the Tasman Great Taste Trail and arrived in the evening after cycling a hard 64 kms.

Our Torlesse Motel double studio unit on the upper level was a super comfortable base for our adventures in and near Kaiteriteri. Staff was great, room was great. Parking was near the room, with a short level walk, then a few steps up to the room. The layout was convenient, the view from our balcony just wonderful. We could see... More

We stayed 2 nights as part of a bike tour. Large rooms with kitchen and outdoor balcony with great views. Comfortable beds. Handy laundry by the kitchen. Owners were very nice. The beach is across the road, and a 10 min walk into town for ferry and restaurants.
