Great location right by dropzone..plenty of room to dry out damp parachutes. Awesome service..clean..friendly...the swimming wasn't active at the time being winter but we stole some lemons from the tree next to it and they were awesome.

Thanks to Vince and his family for looking after my family and I while in Motueka for my son's wedding. We found the motels very comfortable and resonably priced and Vince was able accommodate us all over six units from 18 months through to seniors. We all enjoyed the pool and the kids loved the play ground and sandpit, Vince... More

Our large family group stayed at this motel for two nights while we were sadly in the area to bury a loved one. This was over the Easter Weekend while the motel was very busy. Due to flooding the funeral was delayed and we had no accommodation booked. The Motueka Garden Motel staff were so caring and kind, they let... More

Thank you guys. We stayed 10 days as our bathroom was being upgraded. Nice clean spacious rooms. Had the best sleeps. Our dogs were allowed to stay as well. Our daughter enjoyed the use of the pool and playground. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend your motel to others. 👍

My partner and I stayed at this motel for two nights recently. We couldn’t fault it. The owner was friendly and welcoming. He walked us to the unit and showed us through it which is quite refreshing as so many moteliers just hand you the key and off you go. We had an upgrade to a larger unit. The unit... More

We stayed here for two nights and I absolutely loved this place. Our unit was nice and clean and we had free shampoo, conditioner and soap. Only minus is the bed was hard (I'm a lightweight and need very soft beds - so I guess the experience of the hardness of the bed would depend on the person lying in... More

We stayed here 2 nights. On the backsite of the room is a really big general lawn (with a brand new barbecue which we did not use) And pleasant trees that gave the shade we needed (it was 30 degrees) You get 500MB free wifi and a wifi which is really broadband. At 10 dollars you get everything for a... More

We stayed here overnight while going to Abel Tasman park. Rooms and grounds are spacious, amenities worked (including internet). Free laundry and lots of space to dry on clothesline. What's not to like? Nothing important, just the grounds while spacious are dry, parched, and no special care has been taken with them. Not a problem, but we had more memorable... More

Great to find a real motel not concrete jungle. Older style but our room had been modernized and was perfect size for us - one bedroom unit. Nice view out to lawn area which was great for sitting out. Good to see families playing cricket out back. Owners friendly and we used the pool daily.
