We stayed in a first floor studio in February 2013 as part of a nine week trip round NZ. The room was very clean and well equipped and well serviced. The bed linen was particularly good. Parking was good and the daily Internet allowance (100MB) was generous. The studios include microwave etc. but no hob or electric frying pan. However, we used the local Thai restaurant and take-away (Chokdee) just a few minutes walk away at 109 High Street where the food and service were excellent. The motel is located on Motueka's high street and traffic noise was an issue, particularly since the room was not double-glazed. The room would have benefited from a fan since the windows were kept shut due to the traffic noise. Very pleasant helpful owners.

We stayed here before heading off to kayak the Abel Tasman National Park and were very impressed with the friendliness at reception and comfort of the room. Absolutely no complaints - close to everything, quiet, free DVDs for hire at reception, small bottle of milk on arrival. You really do a good job of keeping up the tradition of good old kiwi service!

The room was huge with good clean facilities. The wifi was free (to a certain Mb limit) and the owners were very helpful. Motueka is a good place to stay to explore Abel Tasman. Restuarants and bars are very close as was the big supermarket.

We stayed for 2 nights on our first visit to the Abel Tasman area. Great motel, really nice room om the ground floor with ournown courtyard with small table, chairs and umbrella. The managers were very helpful, welcoming and friendly. Very clean, good bathroom, sky channels plus free WiFi, although limited it suited our needs at the time. Very good location, close to main street restaurants and supermarket, easy walking so don't need to use car.

Room Tip: No swimmmimg pool to review

We spent 2 nights here and used it as a base for the Abel Tasman National Park. The room was cleanly, tidy, well furnished and we also had an outside patio to ourselves. Lorraine was very charming and helpful. We also used the excellent BBQ. The Wifi is good and although the allowance is limited, this was adequate for our purposes. The only downside was traffic noise. We had a room away from the main road but could still hear the cars. It would clearly be worse for those nearer the front.

Room Tip: As far from the road as possible.

We stayed at the Nautilus Lodge for two nights for a concert at Riwaka. We had a wonderful stay the bathrooms are very clean and the rooms are very spacious. It is walking distance to restuarants and the town centre. It is very clean and tidy and the shower water pressure is great as is the white fluffy towels. We would definately recommend this place and we would stay here again if we were in Motueka.
