Welcoming and accommodating hosts. Nice room with everything we needed, including a kitchenette. Would definitely stay here again. Convenient for visiting the Golden Bay area.

Reviewed 25 February 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights in February 2012, in a one bedroom unit which was booked online.
The host was helpful and pleasant. The room was spacious well capable of accommodating 4 adults (there were 2 of us) and was spotless. It was particularly quiet even though it was situated near the centre of Takaka. Outside the back door of the units was a quiet area with seating for each unit - a pleasant place to sit with a glass of wine whilst getting over the rigours of the day. The bed in the main room was a good size. The wet room style shower unit was very good. The kitchenette was well laid out with a quality oven plus all the equipment required. A table and chairs was provided plus comfy chairs. The TV had 50+ sky channels and wifi was provided (free for first 200MGB's) with a strong signal and adequate speed for normal use.
There was an indoor swimming pool on-site heated by solar power that we viewed, but did not use.
A really great motel that we were fortunate to find as our normal first choice in Pohara was fully booked - and we would return here again, now, in preference to Pohara.

We have stayed here for two nights - before and after walking the Heaphy Track. We could leave our car and luggage at the Lodge which was very helpful. The owners are lovely and their restaurant recommendations were very good!

Anatoki Lodge is in the centre of town. The rooms are large, quiet and very clean. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Anatoki Lodge during our recent visit to Takaka in March. Our family was very surprised at the size and cleanliness of the units. The staff members (Lisa and Mark) were outstanding. They worked very hard to ensure our place was perfect for our stay and were very friendly. They made us feel like family.
Although we only stayed 4 days, we had a great time and thanks to the location, were able to do a lot of fun things in Takaka. Lisa recommended many touristy things to do of which, we managed to do a couple. She was bang-on with the activities and our family enjoyed every outing. Thanks Lisa and Mark for a wonderful stay at your motel. Keep up the great work!

Room Tip: Book one of the family suites! Worked well for us!

My wife and I checked in to Anatoki in the middle of the day, as both of us were not well. Lisa, the owner had genuine concern for us, and came to the room several times to bring medicine and make sure we were ok. She decided that I needed to see the doctor, and made the appointment. We are so grateful for her concern and support.

The motel was located on the main road through Takaka and close to the local shops and cafes, but the units were set back from the road and were extremely quiet. Facilities in our unit were excellent, including a well equipped kitchen area. The motel had a solar heated swimming pool available for guest use, which was a nice bonus.

Gaye and Garth are friendly and very helpful hosts who run an extremely pleasant and clean motel in the lovely town of Takaka and amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in New Zealand.
A great place to stay and we will definitely return
