My wife and I spent two nights at the Captains Rose last November and we had a wonderful time. Evelyn and Nick made us feel very welcome and were wonderful hosts. They know their town very well and were therefore full of helpful advice on how to get around and who to talk to if you want to book a tour to the Abel Tasman.
The B&B is located on a side road in Motueky, and therefore it's nicely quiet - nothing to disturb a good night's sleep. The seaside is less than a 5-minutes walk away.
The room we had was very clean, comfy, and had everything we needed for our stay. It did not have an en-suite toilet, but a private toilet down the corridor, which was more than alright for us. We didn't make use of the swimming pool as it was still quite chilly when we were there.
In the morning Evelyn made us a sensational breakfast, with the obligatory coffee/tea and toast, but also with home-made mueslis, self-made jam, fresh fruit and yoghurt, and more.
We enjoyed our stay very much and can highly recommend the Captain's Rose for a stay in Motueka. Thanks loads, Evelyn and Nick!
