“Couldn't have asked for more”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

We booked three rooms as we had 11 in our party (6 adults / 5 children). From the time of our initial enquiry to the time of our departure the hosts, Alan & Lisa, were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they always went the extra mile to make sure our needs we're taken care of.

The units were spotlessly clean upon our arrival and maintained to this level during our 5 night stay. The pool was clean, safe and warm. The grounds are very spacious and it was good to know that while we relaxed we knew our children were safe and secure either playing on the spacious lawns or bouncing on the trampoline.

Location wise, it's perfect with the supermarket less than 5 mins away, along with all the other attractions of Motukea's Main Street.

This motel was recommended to us and we recommend it others.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 6 days with our teenage daughters. The accommodation was good , very clean and serviced daily. The motel is easy to find and in a very good location to walk to the shops. There is plenty of parking and Lisa and Alan (owners) were very helpful. There is a large (300) free DVD library to use which is really good and also free wifi ( up to a limit) which is great.
We would definitely use this place again.

We stayed for a week recently and could not fault this property. The hosts Alan and Lisa are very friendly and helpful and you can see they take great pride in their property. The motel is in a quiet location and only a short walk to shops, restaurants and the golf course. There is a nice swimming pool and spacious gardens which gives a very relaxing feel. This would have to be the cleanest motel we have stayed at, a real credit to Lisa and her team.
We highly recommend this motel and will definitely be staying here next time we are in Motueka.

Great rooms and facilities, cleanliness second to none, beautfiul gardens, perfect location and to top it all off... friendly helpful hosts!

We really couldn't have asked for more and, in comparision to other accomodation we've stayed in on various trips around the north and south islands, the Equestrian Lodge Motel is easliy one of the best places and really good value.

We stayed at the lovely Equestraian Lodge last year during our travels through New Zealand. Alan was so very instrumental in helping us plan our hike in Abel Tasman the next day. He arranged our water taxi and advised us on the best way to see the park. He even let us store our luggage in his garage and our food in his fridge while we hiked and pick it up way past checkout time. It was nice to feel like we were 'home' even though we were halfway around the world! The suite was perfect for us, with a well-stocked kitchenette and lovely place to dine outdoors. The grounds are breathtaking and well maintained. Thank you for a most wonderful memory!!

Room Tip: Book early!!

We were very lucky to book into Equestrian Lodge - especially when our arrival time was quite seriously delayed, it was so nice to see a friendly face at the end of a long journey! Everything had been thought about in these spacious apartments, a lovely kitchen and lounge and comfortable beds. Would have loved to barbecue in the gardens - the weather was against us so we went in the hot tub instead! Be sure to ask about what to do in the area, the information about the Abel Tasman water taxis and the local vineyards was very welcome.
