Lynne and Ian were welcoming and helpful hosts The room was immaculate with brilliant facilities. The Motel is ideally situated to explore Golden Bay, and only a five minute walk from the town centre, also only a short drive to Kaiterteri. We would highly recommend Nautilus Lodge Motel.

Stayed here following the second leg of our Great Taste Cycling Trail. Friendly owners who helped us with our luggage and bikes. Spacious unit, clean and comfortable. Minutes walk away from some nice casual dining places in Motueka.

Room Tip: Probably best to ask for unit away from main street if you want peace and quiet

We stayed for 2 nights with a tour group. A car accident blacked out the power just after we arrived and with our washing in the machine. Manager kindly looked after it for us and it was returned to our room next day while we were out. Much appreciated. Room was large and very clean. No restaurant so breakfast is basic and delivered to the room the night before which limits choice to toast and cereal but still OK. No internet while we were there as the blackout lasted for 8 hours and then blew up the router with a power surge when restored. Location of motel is just out of main part of town but still easy walking to restaurants and shops.

We stayed at the lodge for 3 nights in January. We found the place to be clean, spacious and in a good location. Lyn and Ian were also most helpful when providing us with ideas on what and where to go. This really was a lovely place and a relatively close distance to the Able Tasman National Park.

We had a large room which was really nice. It's super clean and tidy.

Located just on the edge of town but in close to the supermarket and places to eat.

We stayed here before we went kayaking in the Abel Tasman National park so it's only a short distance by car from Marahau and most of the activities will also pick you up in the morning to take you on your activity.
