We stayed at the Torlesse Motel at Christmas time. Given local holidays it was difficult to find an accomodation. The Motel is just 5min from the lovely beach of little Kaiteriteri, which is perfect for swimming and sunbathing. The neighbouring beach can be reached via a short walk and you can catch boats and tours to Able Tasman from there.
The motel rooms were a little old and a bit dark. Its all a big room with a bed and a sitting table on the side. You can also sit on the terrace but quite narrow and not great for eating outdoors. For a couple of days it was alright.
Pls. be aware that restaurants are closed on Christmas Eve, however most shops and restos open on 26 Dec.
