The rooms here are fully equipped with anything you might need. Very clean and tidy, and the hosts check up if there is anything else they can do. Lovely shower! Bed linen nice and fluffy, extra blanket available. Looked like there was new soft carpet. Beautiful views as located a bit higher up the hill but easy walking distance to...

4 of us stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It had excellent water views. It was comfortable enough. We cooked some veggies and all the pots were very small. We had to use 2 pots and even then, it was boiling over. There were Mosquitos on the first night, but there are no fly screens. I also think that it...

We stayed with friends in 2 'cabins' & we were very impressed with the spaciousness, the cleanliness & the thoughtful extras. These cabins are truly self-contained with your own laundry (detergent included) and kitchen (fully equipped). Your hosts, Christine & Lance, are helpful, informative & genuine. Kaiteriteri is the gateway to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park. If you are...

We stayed at Torlesse Motel for 2 nights as part of a bike tour of the Nelson region.

Neat little motel with a series of separate buildings scattered on a hillside. Upper rooms have nice views over the beach. Walkable (along the beach) to Kaiteriteri where there are a few places to eat. Laundry in the room. Thanks for a lovely stay.
