Handy and modern place to stay. Awesome sheridan towels (a real treat) and spacious room. The owner gave us excellent directions for the local attractions. The only reason I marked this down was because I thought the mattress was a tad uncomfortable. We'd definitely stay again.

I thought we had seen the best Motel, but this one takes a lot of beating. Very well run, clean and modern, with ease of travel within the Abel Tasmin National Park and not to far from Farewell Spit. Ideal in every way. The owners Lenaire and Paul couldn't have been more friendlier and helpful.

Situated as you enter Takaka it is ideally situated to explore the town and the wider Golden Bay area The rooms are spacious and clean and there is a guest laundry which is separate from any of the rooms so no noise! Plenty of parking and the supermarket is only 2mins walk away. Would stay here again.

Mohua Motels are a great base from which to explore the Abel Tasmin National Park. The self catering apartments though functional in appearance from the outside are immaculate and extremely well thought out inside. The staff are all very helpful and knowledgable about the area and you can walk into town. The fish and chips at the Curry Leaf on...

Hi Susanne H, we too think it's "Always a good place to stay". The weather has been perfect for the many people visiting beautiful Golden Bay. The bird song this morning is crisp and clear, great to listen to while having an early morning coffee on the patios' at Mohua Motels. All the best for 2017. Kind regards Lenaire

We only stayed one night, but the room was very comfortable and all the amenities were provided, as well as free Wifi. We didn't have a car, and didn't realize quite how far attractions were from the town. Paul and his wife took very good care of us, however, even taking us to the springs, salmon farm, and dropping us...

These motels are right on the edge of Takaka but still within easy walking distance to the shopping area and restaurants. They are well appointed with lovely red towels in the bathroom. We had a one bedroom unit and did think it strange that the king size bed was in the lounge area rather than the bedroom. Although a bed...
