We didn't have washing powder so the manager actually gave us some of his! The place is comfy with everything we needed to relax and chill...

We were just looking for somewhere in Mot to put our heads down for a night. The rooms are spacious, clean and tidy, and the management very willing and helpful. There is a small swimming pool to chill off in and relax around if you have the time.

I googled Motueka accommodation for last years holiday (and our first trip to the region) and went with these guys. We came back again in January this year...

The title says it all -- clean rooms, and off the main road so you'll get a good night's sleep. The owners went above and beyond, offering us a ride to and from a restaurant so we could enjoy a couple pints of cider and not have to drive back.

Stayed 3 night's. Friendly and very helpful staff. Everything works. Strongly recommend. Not flash but clean. Gardens are great. Very good for children with a small playground as well as the pool, which has good lounge chairs around it. Super pleasant overall.

Its a 3* star like it says on the tin but we had a better tine than a swanky place last Christmas. On Christmas day all the guests were invited to Christmas dinner by the pool, no strings attached. Thanks!

A fantastic spacious place to stay on our visit to Motueka. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and highly recommend this place to anyone. Nice pool to keep cool in for the kids. Older place but I see they are doing a lot of refurbishments and the place looks great.
