We really enjoyed our stay here - we stayed for 3 nights. Motel room was spacious, with a lovely bathroom and decent shower! There was a big balcony with seating, and also seating inside which we used for eating at. There is a gas BBQ available, and the owners provide the equipment (tongs etc) to use it which was great!...

We had one night stay before our Able Tasman trek. It was centrally located in Motueka and was in walking distance to supermarkets, cafes and bars. We were greeted by friendly owners and had a very clean spacious room which we shared with our son. He loved the Sky TV channels. My husband loved the cooking facilities. I love the...

Very clean and well appointed room. Friendly and welcoming staff. Conveniently situated within a 20min drive to Kaiteriteri for the start of the Abel Tasman track and boat taxis etc. Our ground floor room had a pleasant outlook over a small rear courtyard.

Stayed in room 4, spotless! Compliments to the staff! Loved how the bedroom was separate to the lounge. Well appointed Motel, even scissors and paper towels etc! Handy walking distance to restaurants and although on main road we barely even noticed traffic (and we are light sleepers). Would highly recommend and Motueka is a great place to stay if visiting...

Called in late one afternoon after seeing that a vacancy was available on the last minute website. Very large room, so clean. Was spotless! Very comfy beds and very large, generous rooms. Very close to the town centre.

We had 4 nights here, and only on the last morning was I woken by traffic on the main road. Luckily the fire station alarm only went off once while we were there - it is very close by. The motel is very handy for shops and cafes, easy to walk to the supermarket. The rooms are large especially the...

Have stayed at Nautilus Lodge a few times now, generally after a camping disaster and it always feels like such luxury coming here! Rooms are lovely, very clean, great location, easy to walk into town. They are going through change of management at the moment and new owners are lovely people as were the last. Great price to stay as...

This motel has a lot going for it - large rooms with a good bathroom, limited road noise, very friendly staff, and within walking distance of restaurants. The only thing we struggled with was having the sofa and TV on opposite sides of the room, so we had to drag the sofa closer so we could see it.

Good morning, thank you for your review. We try to make the most of the rooms and give our guests as much floor space as possible for what sometimes seems like a mountain of luggage, which is why the settee is pushed back. The placing of any furniture is a very personal issue and no layout will be suitable for...

Stayed for one night only on our way to Abel Tasman National Park. The room was large, clean, nice kitchen and bathroom facilities and a patio with an orange tree. Lovely! The managers were very nice and helpful. Restaurants and super market are close by. The price was right for sure.

This motel was centrally located. All facilities were good and cleanliness of a good standard. Despite being close to he road traffic noise was not a problem Free Wi-Fi would be an asset as offered by most accommodation throughout the world now.
