We had 2 nights here, it was superb value for money. A short walk into town, well appointed rooms, spotlessly clean and the owners were very friendly, accommodating and helpful. I can strongly recommend the ELM for a Motueka stay.

We stayed four nights & just loved it. I had two swims in the pool, an added bonus. Easy to get your washing washed &...

We loved everything about this place! It was very comfy, quiet, spotlessly clean, and spacious. The grounds are the most beautiful gardens and the BBQ, hot tub and pool are great ! It's a great location that is close to everything you need and a good base for Abel Tasman National Park. Alan and Lisa make you feel like you...

We love this part of the world, but, have struggled before this to find 'nice' rooms, with cooking facilities, that is quiet in the evening. This place really hits the spot. The Owners are also very helpful in terms of trip suggestions. The lay out is wonderful, with the pool, spa BBQ and gardens. We look forwards to coming back...

There is also a hot tub and even a clothing line. It is the perfect place to relax for a few days if you have young children. The...
