Not the youngest place, but well looked after. Kitchen functions, good size fridge in our unit. Clean to be cosy, and just the sunset beach outside with good hunting for muscles and cockles ... And their free WiFi can still be reached even on the beach.

This was a great place to stay for a couple of days. We wanted to enjoy this part of NZ but wanted to avoid the crowds of Abel Tasman. We were able to get a beachfront unit here, and if one is available, go for it. It is nicely furnished, quiet, and very comfortable. It looks out on gorgeous Golden Bay and it is only a few feet to the beach. While here, we rented sea kayaks and kayaked around the headland towards Abel Tasman. We also spent a fantastic afternoon exploring Wharariki Beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches we visited in all of NZ.

Room Tip: go for a beachfront unit

As usual PBM was ideal for a coupe of days "chilling out" and we"ll be back in the spring. If you were any closer to the beach, high tide would be in you room. Room was spotless, Barry the manager was very helpful & the weather was magic. It is good that the unit had a proper sized stove, fridge & microwave. We were impressed with the update of decor and furnishings in our unit too!

This is a great Motel. Having spent 4 weeks travelling around New Zealand we have seen and stayed in a good selection of hotels and motels. This is head and shoulders above the standards of many. The location is excellent. It's right on he beach and well placed to explore he Abel Tasman Narional Park and Farewell Spit. The apartments/rooms are well furnished and very comfortable with everything needed to self cater, plus sky TV, comfortable beds and the level of cleanliness was very good. the gardens are immaculately kept and the managers were incredibly helpful. They can't do enough to make sure your stay is a good one. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 1-bedroom which had a double and single bed in he bedroom plus a sofa bed in the livi...

Pohara is a very good location to discover the beautiful Golden Bay. The Pohara Beach Motel is nearly direct tot he beach front in a sunny area. The Beach itself is long and wide when the tide is low. We stayed in one of the Garden Units with two rooms, a bedroom and a living room with full kitchen. There is a washing machine (paying with coins) and a dryer in the garden. The bathroom is very small and the WIFI could be better, BUT we love to use one of the BBQ stations and the herbal garden in the shared large Garden area. Fiona and Barry are very friendly hosts they like to have guests. They gave us many good hints what to do. You will find the next supermarket in Takaka. There is also a post office, gas station and everything else you need for your vacation. We warmly recommend this accommodation.

As the name says it is right on the beach so excellent location. We stayed there one night only and that motel has everything you can wish for. We had one bedroom unit and it was very spacious.
We also had a balcony with a beach view. The place was spotless clean.

Room Tip: Ask for a apartment with a sea view.
