A fairly ordinary one bedroom unit, but well equipped with a very comfortable bed and good cooking facilities. The internet is a bit wobbly, and TV channels are limited, but maybe geography is the issue here?
We stayed in a ‘Upper level super king studio with sea view’ for 3 nights. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. The view from our room was superb and we were struck by how quiet and peaceful the location was. Sandra one of the managers was very helpful giving us advice on what to do and see, and in booking boat trips for us. We have stayed in many motels/apartments in New Zealand and to date this was certainly the best. We would return like a shot.
Wish we could have extended our 3-night stay here! Our hosts were really welcoming. The studio-bedroom was large and spotlessly clean throughout. The living-room area was comfortably furnished and the kitchen area was very well equipped, including a washing machine. The beach is only a few minutes stroll from the motel and we enjoyed taking our aperitivi on our balcony with the sun setting over the sea. ln fact, this was probably our favourite of over a dozen hotels/motels in which we stayed during our 6-week stay in Oz & NZ.
We managed to upgrade to the best apartment with a sea view. The manager was lovely and very welcoming. Amenities were great, washing machine and kitchen perfect for a 2 night stay. Well finished apartment - lots of room but also cosy too. Extremely comfortable bed! Walking distance from Kaiteriteri main beach. Would definitely recommend.
Wife and I stayed for three nights while touring NZ. The room we had didn't have great views or anything, but was clean, comfortable, well equipped and came with a friendly welcome! The room so had a washing machine, which is always useful on an extended holiday!
The motel also has a good hot tub and bbq area. (We made use of the former and would recommend it after a day in Abel Tasman.)
The motel is a 15 minute walk from Kaiteriteri using either the road or along the beach and over the small headland.
All in all, a good place to stay to access the park and/or the beach.
