Stayed here with family of 5. Two bedrooms and bed settee. Accommodation was spotless with a fantastic view from the balcony. It was a flying visit but we could have stayed a lot longer. The area has so much to see and do. Would like to return one day.

Our room was beautiful & clean with a nice view, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated the in-room washing machine and complimentary detergent. We would have liked to stay longer.

We stayed at the Torlesse Motels for three nights. The hosts were fantastic, offering plenty of information about restaurants and things to do, also turned on our heater for us on a very cold evening when we were out so came back to a lovely warm room. The motels are very clean and well equipped. Would definitely stay again.

We recently stayed one night. Had ground floor unit which I think might be their cheaper option. Nothing wrong with it though. Is very roomy, much larger than most motel units. Well equipped and nice and clean. Close to action at Kaiteriteri. We would happily stay there again. Highly recommended from us.

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Recommended tours and activities as we hadn't booked anything in advance. I picked this motel for its location as we wanted to venture to see the Abel Tasman National Park. It was max 10 minutes walk from where the ferries left (although you could drive and park if you wanted to). Lovely views from sea...

Our Torlesse Motel double studio unit on the upper level was a super comfortable base for our adventures in and near Kaiteriteri. Staff was great, room was great. Parking was near the room, with a short level walk, then a few steps up to the room. The layout was convenient, the view from our balcony just wonderful. We could see...

We stayed 2 nights as part of a bike tour. Large rooms with kitchen and outdoor balcony with great views. Comfortable beds. Handy laundry by the kitchen. Owners were very nice. The beach is across the road, and a 10 min walk into town for ferry and restaurants.

We loved staying here for two nights. Beautiful spotlessly maintained accommodation with a laundry in the suite which was a real bonus. Plenty of car parking space outside the suite. Fully equipped kitchen and we also enjoyed the lovely set up for the barbecue. There is a terrific Jacuzzi for use by guests which is great after a day exploring...
