We stayed for 4 nights and were very happy with the lodge and the friendly and helpful owners. It was very clean and the stuff very friendly. It´s just a short walk from city center. To start to the Able Tasman it´s a great stay...We can recommand that Motel to everyone else.

We stayed here for 1 night in a two bedroom before going to Abel Taskman national park. After a long drive from Picton, we were greeted warmly by owner Lisa and she even showed us all the way to our room. Upon entering the room we were instantely impressed by how clean and well presented the rooms were. Although it...

Quite the best motel we have ever found in NZ, with friendly and very helpful owners, beautiful setting in effectively a botanical garden with pool, comfortable and spacious rooms with particularly well appointed bathrooms, and great location in relation to Motuepa, shops and coast. If I have to find a fault ... the mugs were a little on the small...

A roomy, comfortable and clean motel with a lovely outdoor space and helpful and friendly owners. It's also a close walking distance from the shops and eateries. We had a pleasant stay at this place for a couple of nights.

The grounds are beautiful. There is a pool. There is a hottub but it cost $8/30 min to use. The hosts were very friendly and...

Stayed 3 nights. Brand new bathroom, spacious lounge/dining. Spent most evenings sipping great NZ wine outside overlooking beautifully cared for gardens. Alan made sure we were well looked after customer service was excellent! Very close to shops & supermarket. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed here two nights sandwiching a night in nearby Abel Tasman Natl Park. We thus stayed in two units that were in tip-top shape: very clean, well-provisioned, good size, and everything in like-new condition. While the units were excellent, they were topped by the superb hosts, Lisa and Alan, who were extremely kind, friendly and helpful. For example, we...

This is our motel of choice when we have a night in Motueka because it is walking distance to town so one can have a few drinks and find one's way back quite easily. The garden setting is beautiful. We stayed in a studio unit (no 2) which was really spacious. Very tidy and clean. We were welcomed by a...

This is one of our favorite motel. The place is very comfortable and there's a great view overlooking the yard from our room. The staffs were wonderful and very friendly. They gave us great tips about where to go. We would definitely come back here again the next time we are in New Zealand.
