We needed a base for four days whilst showing friends around the region and found and booked the motel online. The staff were very friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable and had what we needed. The covered car ports between the units meant there weren't any neighbour noises through the walls, outdoor furniture was available...

Nice, comfortable place to regroup after doing the Abel Tasman. The owner and manager here are what make the place so special. Really kind people who go out of their way to accommodate you. 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.

Great little place in Motueka. Inflated prices from some of the accommodation in the region makes that summer family holiday pricey but this wee gem offers realistic pricing for the accommodation offered. 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...

Here's my overdue review (doh! My daughter and I thought each had done one). Fab place in a good location. A decent sized, clean room with good facilities. The grounds etc were well maintained. The hospitality was great with a warm welcome from Vince, who incidentally even helped me look in the dark for my mislaid car keys (we found...

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!
