10,0 Excellent
Pros: Clean, well appointed units, beautiful grounds, and a lovely pool, what more can you say
Cons: The photos online don’t do it justice!
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Friendliness of motel staff, especially the owners were very helpful. The quietness and motel was so close to all the shops, restaurants, and beach etc. The cleanliness and 2 bedroom apartment was value for money!
Cons: I really can't think of anything I didn't like.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts are amazingly friendly, the place is quiet and comfy. Its close to town. Beds are comfy and the place is spotlessly clean.
Cons: Just the outside lights, if we could turn them off we would. We're from the country so we don't have lights outside.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: This has to be one of the most memorable stays in the past few years. Why? Because of the owner, Alan, who is the most friendly, easy going, accommodating and helpful hotelier/host that I've ever met. This is what hospitality is all about! Thanks Alan for a great stay!. As for the property itself, it is on a plot of land just a 1 minute's drive off the main highway through Motueka, but it is an oasis of rest. The layout of the buildings is perfect, with all rooms having a private parking spot near the frontdoor, and a rear patio that looks out onto a beautiful shared lawn area that also gives access to the pool and barbecue area. The pool (8am-9pm) is heated to 28C, on the small side, but still large enough to swim a few short laps. The barbecue area was equipped with a gas fired BBQ and looked good, we did not use it though. The rooms are large and immaculately clean. They have a full kitchen with all the cutlery and utensils you need. Fresh milk is provided if you need it. All rooms are heated and cooled with a modern and silent heatpump aircon system. We were in two different rooms during this stay. First room was a studio with a single queen bed and seating area with a couch. The other room was a two bedroom suite with a seperate living room area, 1 bedroom with queen bed and 1 bedroom with two twins. Both rooms had a patio area looking out onto the shared lawn. Both rooms had a large TV with Sky and Netflix (all set up using a hotel account). The interior of the rooms is not plush or luxury, but (very) clean, tidy and comfortable. Everything you need is there and you really notice that the owners have an eye for detail. Just very good and consistent is what the owners seem to be aiming for and they're doing an excellent job, not just on the inside, but also on the outside, as all the building are in immaculate condition.
Cons: Nothing really. There is just one single thing that comes to mind as something which could have been better. That is the fact that there is a single, large indoor aircon unit in the living room of the two-bedroom suite, instead of a multisplit system with separate units in the bedrooms. Cooling the whole unit down from the living room with the bedroom door open wastes a lot of energy if you only want the bedroom to be cool at night. It also takes a while for the bedroom to really start cooling down that way. So if you prefer a cool bedroom at night and have no need for the seperate living room and bedroom, just settle for the studio type room.

Rowan Cottage Organic B&B - Motueka - Bedroom
4
9,3 Excellent (20 reviews)
R1 331+
Overview Reviews
Rowan Cottage has been lovingly transformed from a sheep paddock into an organic Garden of Eden and is situated only 10 mins walk from the Motueka town. It is quiet, peaceful and off the main road. Our Garden studio is sunny, light and modernly furnished. It adjoins our house but has its own private entrance, an ensuite bathroom, a well-equipped kitchen and a small television. Perfect for a couple.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable, well designed and well appointed room and bath, with a beautiful garden right out the door. The hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. They shared organic peaches, apples, and grapes just picked from their garden. And I picked luscious blackberries for breakfast. One of the best places we stayed in NZ.

Great value for money, happy to recommend this to others

Motueka Garden Motel - Motueka - Bedroom

8,5 Excellent (355 reviews)
R1 424+
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Motueka Garden Motel in Motueka, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Motueka District Museum. Featured amenities include a business center, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Not the most modern of Motels but everything was clean & tidy. Kids loved the swimming pool & watching the parachutists land at the airfield.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Door between bedroom and lounge/kitchen meant could shut out fridge noise whilst sleeping. Car port next to unit meant car did not get too hot, and reduced noise between units.
Cons: Minor thing. Position of soap dispenser over sink made it tricky when brushing teeth.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was just fine.
6,0 Good
Pros: two bedroom unit with full cooking facilities, spacious room that can fit 5 persons, friendly host. the area has a swimming pool, a small aviary and a huge outdoor area .
Cons: because we were on the bottom unit, we did not have a good sleep having to put up with noises from guests upstairs in the middle of the night and wee hours of the morning.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, clean, free laundry,
Cons: The only thing we could say was you could hear people walking in the unit above
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely family oriented motel. A park, pool and space for children to enjoy! Staff were super friendly and went out of their way to help. Many thanks for our stay.
Cons: Property is a little dated but I think the benefits listed above outweigh this!
7,0 Good
Pros: The quiet location and the fact the motel had a swimming pool. Also the fact the units were partly serviced every day including stocking of tea and coffee and toilet paper.
Cons: There were a few maintenance issues that could be attended to . I notified the owners of eg. a dripping tap but a number of doors needed easing also. It was not made clear that there was no full sized stove in the unit - it only mentioned cook top and oven, which was really just a "rangette" which was inadequate for cooking a full meal so we ate out mostly.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The apartment was spacious and modern with multiple beds, and was spotlessly clean. It was good to have additional mirrors available outside the bathroom too. The owners were lovely and very helpful, and quickly sorted out a noise issue with the upstairs neighbours. Parking was available right in front of our room. It's also a nice quiet location close to town but without any traffic noise.
Cons: If you have neighbours upstairs, their footfalls can be very noisy. There are a pair of ringnecks in an aviary in the garden, however their cage was filthy and they only had dirty water bowls and seed that had probably piled up over many months. They were not being fed a varied diet either, but this was raised with the owners.

5,0 Okay
Pros: Great location.

5,0 Okay
Pros: The lodge is very close to the beach and all the activities in and around Kaiteriteri.

7,5 Good
Pros: Great location , although proximity to restaurants meant food smells in our room.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location, friendly staff. Also we ate in the Beached Whale next door and the food was outstanding, and reasonable prices. friendly staff, equipped kitchen, comfy beds.
Cons: No storage or ability to hang clothes or wet towels etc. no clothesline. As we were on the beach all day it would have been great to have somewhere to hang wet things. It was a very small room-no storage or anywhere to put clothes away which left us cramped -will pack less next time!!!!!
6,7 Good
Pros: The lodge was ideally placed in the centre of the resort and close to all amenities.. The staff at the lodge were super helpful..
Cons: This accommodation is ideal for young travellers as this is exactly what it is geared up for.. But I would still consider staying here again given the location and the staff who work at at the lodge could not be faulted..
