Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

We spent four nights at Kaiteri Motels in Jan, and were impressed by how clean and well equiped the Motel Units were. Even a washing machine in the kitchen. Just a short walk to beautiful Little Kaiteriteri beach, and only a few minutes more over to Kaitertieri. We used the Spa every night, and their BBQ facilities which had all the utensils provided. The managers were very helpful, and keen to make our stay a pleasant one.Would highly recommend this accommodation, and would stay there again if returning to Kaiteriteri.

Room Tip: We paid less by choosing a Garden view motel unit, rather than sea view.

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.

We rang the Kaiteri Motels and Apartments on our way to Kaiteriteri, early evening. We were so lucky they still had a vacancy as this was the perfect place to stay. We only stayed one night as we were on a tight schedule but would have loved to stay longer.
Great unit and at a great price. It was clean and tidy and even had a washing machine.
The only complaint I had is there was no normal tea to drink, only green tea and no bathmat for the shower.
Offering soap as well as body wash would also be a nice touch as some people like my fiance prefer to use soap for shaving.

We agree with the other poor reviews. This motel we would rate as only two to three star and was by far the worst value unit we had on our two week South Island holiday. The unit was dark and cold with no good heating(2 Warehouse ones) and the appliances and couch were also cheap. No clock or radio. Great location and friendly manager. We recommend trying elsewhere close by.

Kaiteriteri was our first stop on our holiday in New Zealand. Kaiteri motels and apartments was perfect, we booked a studio with sea views, and they were great views towards the coast, only a few minutes walk to Little Kaiteriteri beach. The studio had everything we needed. The manager was great, very friendly and helpful. Loved it, thank you!

We stayed during the off season and felt it was great value. The king sized bed very comfortable, the shower fantastic. having a laundry in the studio was a bonus. lovely balcony area. The kitchen is a tight fit, but had everything we wanted and needed.
would definitely recommend and good value in the off season.

We loved the coffee machines in the units - they made great cafe coffees.

We had a lovely stay at this place. The owners are super friendly and relaxed. The apartment was very spacious with a great view. It even had a washing machine inside the apartment. There is a heating unit on the wall, that is a little loud, but works fast if you need to heat the room. Kitchen was fully equipped. Bed was very comfortable and balcony with seaside. We got fresh milk upon arrival. I would certainly come again at this place and felt very at home. Also it’s close by Abel Tasman park, an absolutely wonderful place for endless hikes.

Lovely friendly cheerful staff. Rooms very clean and well stocked with everything you can think of even down to drying racks. Great BBQ area & even offer free laundry service if you don’t have a washing machine in your room. So great we went back a week later.
