Booked for one night and ending up staying for three nights using as a base for Able Tasman National Park. Styling may look a little dated from the outside, but inside the room was spotless and was large with plenty of light and a view of the well manicured gardens. The room had a kitchenette which enabled us to cook...

We booked a studio room which was very spacious and clean, this made for a comfortable stay and meant we had room to arrange our luggage without cluttering the room. The kitchen had good fundamentals and the quiet accommodation allowed a good few nights sleep. The service was tremendous with very friendly owners who were more than happy to help...

I have been travelling & working around Westland, Tasman & Marlborough for 5 yrs. I tried quite a few motels until I tried the Equestrian in Motueka, what a difference it made to being away from home. From that point I only ever stayed at the Equestrian while working in the Tasman area. Private, secure, excellent standards, fantastic owners who...

Lovely clean motel. Very comfortable beds. The grounds are well looked after and very peaceful. Booked this motel due to the singing of the birds for my mother! There is a lovely swimming pool, but sadly it was closed as it is winter. The owners are fantastic, so helpful and friendly. They were so good to help my mother with...

My family and I stayed for four nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect motel. Nothing was a problem, with everything you could ever want on offer from a motel. The hosts were wonderful, friendly and helpful. Great location, close to town etc. The motel was a real retreat, quiet and peaceful....

My family and I had stayed for two nights in 2-bedroom apartment. Excellent Stay! Position: quite convenient to pay a day trip to Abel Tasman NP, within 20 min by driving. Two big supermarkets nearby, within 20 min by driving. Hosts: the couple are very friendly and pretty helpful. Because lack of using experience, actually we had made a bit...

This place was so cute and had everything we needed! It was clean and was in a great location, easy access to restaurants and groceries and only about 20 minutes to Abel Tasman. Would definitely stay here again.
