Reviewed 18 January 2014

Great location in Little Kaiteriteri - only 2 minutes stroll to the gorgeous beach and 10 minutes around the headland at low tide to the river and main Kaiteriteri beach. Unit was spotless and well equipped with its own washing machine and well equipped kitchen. Outdoor bbq also available to all. Lovely and peaceful in the evenings with a small balcony to enjoy the sunsets. Whilst we did not use it the heatpump/air conditioning would be great on a balmy summer day. We only stayed one night in transit but would return.

Torlessse was pure luxury for our family. It is perfectly located only a short walk from little Kaiteriteri Beach - which is only a short walk from the main Kaiteriteri Beach (the little beach is nicer!).

The rooms were large, perfectly clean and contained everything we needed and more. The balcony looked out over the bay (room 10) and was a great spot to sit and enjoy a drink at the end of the day.

There is a spa pool and fantastic BBQ area. The owners are very friendly and clean your room and provide fresh towels every day.

Highly recommended as a holiday destination - we will definitely be back!!!

Thankyou so much for your comments and review of your stay at Torlesse. The unit you stayed in was our premium (Superior two bedroom) offer and perfect for families with recently improved furnishings and appliances to make the stay more comfortable. We focus on guest reviews and feedback to ensure our facilities can offer an enjoyable experience. Our recently improved BBQ and spa area is great for families and those who have been on long walks or kayaks enjoy the relaxation of the spa pool..Thanks again for the feedback

Well maintained, very clean, comfortable, spacious. We had no one above us so it was very quiet and private. Good value. It was nice to have a king bed. Host was very friendly and helpful. Good base from which to visit Abel Tasman.

We have just returned from our first trip to this fabulous area. We had two days and one night in the Abel Tasman national park with 2 nights on arrival and 1 night on our departure in very comfortable large single bedroom units. The management went out of their way to help us, letting us store the car there while we were in the park, providing batteries for the camera so we could take plenty of photos, and marking our tourist map with specific destinations. the location is great - away from the bustle and noise of Kaiteriteri which is within easy walking distance. We will definitely stay at this motel again. .

Hi, We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this wonderful area. There is so much to offer and we are more than happy to let other guests wanting to explore the Abel Tasman,leave their luggage and vehicle here. As we are quite new to this Area, we too are exploring every week and love sharing our experiences with our guests.There is so much to see both on land and water. Definitely worth a few days in this area if time permits. Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences at 'Torlesse'.

We stayed in a one bedroom, no sea view unit that was clean & comfortable. The location is conveniently close to the beach but know you can only walk across the sand to the stores/restaurants during low tide. When the water is high you can take a short trail that goes steeply up and steeply down to get to the beach where the water taxis to Abel Tasman, restaurants, and small store are located. Also note that the motel charges a small fee for things like use of the dryer or the jacuzzi.

Thankyou for commenting on your stay with us. The comments about charging for the Hot Spa Pool/Jacuzzi are not correct. We offer this facility along with our undercover BBQ area to our guests free of charge and provide additional towels aswell. There is a small $2 charge for the clothes dryer. Your comments are appreciated and we hope you enjoyed your travels in our country.

Good value for money. We stayed one night after only a one day Abel Tasman because of the rain. Comfortable clean spacious enough, but if you have the lower apartment you hear every step of the people above. We were warned but nevertheless.... Good helpful service.

Thankyou for taking the time to complete a review on your stay with us. We do have two units that are located below another unit. We are very careful to ensure that any person enquiring about accommodation options with us are fully aware that footsteps may be heard from above and therefore leave the decision to the guest as to whether they continue to pursue this option. The nightly cost of these two units is significantly below our other offers which in some cases suits the potential guest. Hope fully if you venture to our beautiful Tasman region again,the option to stay in one of our well positioned (Great Sea Views) , private and quiet units is available. Once again, we appreciate your feedback as we continue to strive for the very best guest experience.
