Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2012. Booked a one bedroom unit for two adults by email. Beds available to accommodate 4 adults. The shower, in the bath, was modern and of a good quality. A number of extra consumable items were included for use in the bathroom. The tv had 50+ sky channels. Wifi was available at an additional, not unreasonable price, the signal was strong and the speed of download was acceptable for normal use. The room had a pleasant attached courtyard with a table and chairs.
The kitchenette was adequate and had all the necessary equipment, but was a bit cramp - the only reason for a 4* rather than 5* rating, in my opinion.
The motel is well placed for walking to the centre of Motueka, where restaurants and a supermarket can be found, in addition to a good number of interesting shops and stores.
Motueka is handy for trips to the Abel Tasman Park (only a 15 minute drive away from the boat shuttle service), and has an interesting Estuary walk (circa 1 hr) where we saw kingfishers and spoonbills (plus a number of other birds).
