Reviewed 18 February 2013

This is the second year that I have stayed at the Mohua Motel in Takaka and once again I enjoyed my stay enough to stay for 4 nights. The facility is modern, very clean with all the amenities plus knowledgeable information about the sights and walks in the area The proprietors are very helpful in every regard from restaurant recommendations to arranging tours. I have spent 2 months in NZ for the past 6 years and I can recommend the Mohua Motel without reservation as an accommodation that consistently exceeds my expectations.

My husband and I found Mohua Motels on the web. We instantly thought the price was very competitive, and the complex looked new and inviting. So we booked in for 2 nights - and so glad we did! We stayed in a studio where everthing was at our fingertips. Air conditioning, comfortable bed, sky t.v, beautiful bathroom, relaxing decor, gorgeous outlook over green lush paddocks. Staff who were more than accomodating, nothing was a problem; they gave us directions on anywhere we wanted to go in the area. Our unit was serviced thouroughly each day. We both travel quite a lot within our jobs and we both would rate this a most comfotable and memorable stay. So much so we booked for a 3rd night! Liz & Nick - CHCH

Could not fault this place quite new with all the little extras with class, spa was great, great view of the mountains from our balcony.
Lenaire & Paul where very helpful, Salmon farm just up the road yum.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $20.00 for the spa worth every cent

Stayed for 6 nights in the end. This motel is a real find, recently done up, quiet and comfy with one of the best showers we found in 6 weeks of travel. The air conditioning was a real bonus when the temperature hit 29 C. Friendly, helpful owners and a good selection of pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. Golden bay area is memorable.

Not a lot of options in Takaka and Mohua is a bit deceptive; on the outside it looks like an ordinary (modern) hotel but on the inside it proves to be way more than ordinary. Large clean rooms, modern décor and great value are what will keep me coming back.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at this motel. We stayed in a studio room which was upstairs in the motel. The motel is very modern and clean. We were very impressed with our room which included a nice balconey. The room also has a well equipped kitchenette which we used to prepare several meals.

The hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and gave us some good tips. The motel is very centrally located with a super market across the road and walking distance to the township. We really enjoyed Takaka. It is a very quirky and fun place. There are also several nice restaurants and cafes to eat at.

Overall we enjoyed this motel. My only recommendation is a very small one. The motel did not supply shower caps and unfortunately the supermarket also didn't stock any.

I would definitely recommend this motel for your stay in Takaka.
