Our room is self contained which is great, the unit is very clean & quiet & the owners are very welcoming. There is a great play ground for kids, not that we have any and beautiful gardens. Great location, only a couple of blocks away from the main street,

I first stayed at the Equestrian when I shifted down to Motueka some 8 years ago and even going back this week been Alan and Lisa remembered me! My parents make a point of staying here as well whenever they come to town; it's a fantastic hotel and right in the heart of Mot. As well as the facilities, Alan...

My son, grandson and myself stayed here for 3 nights this week and were astounded by this place. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was spotlessly clean and warm. The grounds were meticulously taken care of and all in all we had a fantastic stay. Thanks Andy and Lisa

We were only there for one night, but wished we'd booked for longer! The apartment was very well set out with everything that you need and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Nicely tucked away in a back street so really quiet, but only a 5 minute walk to the shops and cafes. We will definitely be back!

Excellent motel tucked away in a quiet residential area of Motueka but only 5 minutes walk to New World supermarket and the main area of town. Alan and Lisa are very good hosts and always very helpful. The rooms are well equipped and gardens are spacious with a good pool.

Great little spot to stay in Motueka. Kind of a sleepy town but a nice place to stay after our hike in Abel Tasman. Alan the owner greeted us and took us to our room. We got upgraded as someone requested to stay an extra night in the lesser room we had originally booked. He also gave us some recommendations...

We are in NZ for a 3 week break. We started in Queenstown and travelled up the west coast and this by far the best motel we have stayed in. Great size, spotlessly clean and Alan and Lisa were very friendly and willing to assist with any queries. In addition it had a really pleasant garden area where you could...
