On an overnight trip to Takaka in October, my husband and I found the Mohua Motel. What a lovely spot to stay - right on the outskirts of town, but absolutely easy walk to all amenities in town, good restaurants, shops, etc. The owner was...More

Thank you for your feedback and kind words. We plan on getting permanent wooden cots for next season, to eliminate the hassle of setting them up and to provide a safer environment for infants. I hope we do see you again in the future! -Ken

We enjoyed our stay very much. Had to check in early which was no hassle at all, rooms were very clean and well equipped for all our needs. Went for dinner that night which was a short walk into the main hub of Takaka 👍🏾

We were not sure what the area had to offer so only booked one night at this motel. Our biggest regret was that we didn't stay longer. The motel was fabulous. Clean, quiet and central to town. We will be back.
