          Nothing to fault here. We stayed one night in unit 8 but could have happily stayed longer. A clean, comfortable and quiet motel in a beautiful location, about 30 seconds walk to the beach. Friendly and helpful customer service. Would happily return.

          This motel lived up to its star reviews. Excellent spot right on the beach. Well appointed and clean with the best beds of our trip. The owner was great and helped us upstairs with our luggage. Would return any time.

          Hi Cathi, Thanks for your enquiry. Nelson is about a two hour drive from Pohara. You go over the Takaka Hill which is a winding road, but sealed. Look forward to hearing from you :)
