Motueka Garden Motel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Motueka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We stayed at Motueka Garden Motel the nights before and after a 3-day kayaking trip in Abel Tasman. It is conveniently placed for driving into the National Park and also very comfortable, clean and warm to welcome us back to civilisation! The rooms were a good size and had everything we needed.The hosts were also very helpful. I would definitely recommend Motueka Garden Motel to others.

we stayed for 2 nights at this motel on our honeymoon. our purpose to stay here was to visit abel tasman region. the motel provides all the basic facilities and is peaceful. the reception is very helpful in guiding you around the town and make booking for your for your trip to the national park. over all a nice, clean, peaceful property with basic amenities and a wonderful reception.

Neat little motel located just out from Motueka town Centre, and off the main roads which is great for peace, quiet and not to mention children! Definitely nothing fancy about this motel, our large bdrm unit had everything we needed, enough space for a little family of 3, comfortable beds & semi tidy rooms but nothing extravagant. We stayed here around Xmas time which was very hot and there is no A/C however they do have a pool to dip in which was lovely! Great little park located just outside our unit which was perfect for our toddler! The use of the washing machine is FREE, which is a plus when you're out and about beaching and exploring. Things I wold like to recommend would be to have their carpet cleaned as the unit we stayed in had quite a few stains and to de-mould the bathroom a little (it's not terrible but could be cleaned up) and if possible provide free internet ( not a biggy though as a wee internet kiosk is provided free of charge in the reception). On the plus side the hosts were lovely, the owner even offered to dig out fresh spuds & veg for our Xmas dinner, the owners and their family were all really helpful and friendly and we would go back again!

Room Tip: If you have small children with you who would like to play on the wee playground and swim in the poo...

Nothing fancy about this place, but it was clean, warm and dry.
Basic block construction units in small blocks mean a reasonable amount of privacy and outside space.
Bathroom and tea making facilities were basic but worked fine
There was no evidence of airconditioning so a stay in the middle of summer might not be wise, but in early November it was no issue.
We were on a couple's self-drive holiday and this was good value and worked out well as an overnight stop.

We appreciate this Motel has new owners, but we do urge them to look at supplying internet free of charge. A large number of Motels allow at least a few MB's (then a charge) but this Motel charges for every connection.
Nice garden setting, comfortable large unit, with undercover parking alongside. Quiet as this is off the main road, but it's not in the centre of the town (or even within walking distance), so you need to drive.

We've stayed at around 20 motels in New Zealand so far and this was without a doubt the best. All the rooms must have recently been renovated because everything is brand new and modern. The staff were really helpful and went the extra mile.

I recently stayed here while in Motueka for business. I stayed in the studio room, which was less than $100 a night. The room was quite small but perfect for my needs, and they have a number of larger units as well. I was very happy with my choice, as the motel is situated just out of Motueka and the units are set well back from the road. It was very quiet and the room was comfortable.

The television is a smallish CRT but had a good selection of channels including Sky Sport 1 and 2. The bed was comfortable and the shower hot and powerful, which is always appreciated. The staff were friendly and non-intrusive and I was very happy with my stay. If I need to go to Motueka again I would stay there without hesitation.
