Travellers' Choice
Come and enjoy Golden Bay's warm and friendly lifestyle...Perfectly situated at the entrance to Takaka Township, next door to the Golden Bay Visitor Centre, bus stop and supermarket. Ideal for the traveller arriving into Takaka by bus. The motel's ambience is one of restful colours, warmth and serenity, enjoying rural views and the ranges in the west from a sun-drenched patio. Mohua Motels makes an ideal base from which to explore all this wonderful region has to offer. You really need to spend at least a week or more in Golden Bay; time to visit the rugged beauty at its northern most tip and the numerous beaches that stretch from Farewell Spit to the golden sands of Totaranui at the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park.

I would highly recommend this motel. Myself, my daughter and 2 granddaughters stayed for 2 nights. The office lady was very bright, smiley and helpful. Motel room was perfect, spectacular views and quiet. Loved the peace and able to look out to paddocks. Beautiful weather for the weekend. Next time we go to Takaka I will be booking this motel again. Thank you so much

Perfect location plus an amazing view of the Sunset, We have an amazing stay. Best spot as a base for taking those beautiful short trips. The design of the room for me is excellent. The location is a big plus, it is in the heart of the town and just a walking distance to the supermarket and the shops. I have booked again for January 2023!

Perfect location, walking distance to Takaka restaurants and cafes. The room was very clean and the facilities modern. There was a nice sunny verandah out the back to unwind with a G & T. The owner gave us a couple of good tips of places to visit (Pupu Springs and The Grove). Overall we were blown away with the beauty of Takaka and loved our holiday there, despite the arduous trip over the infamous Takaka hill.

Very basic and comfortable place to be. Very clean. Have spent not much time as it was a business trip. But really like the shower and how clean the place was. Close to a very good restaurant called DADA.

We stayed 5 nights at this motel and found it was an excellent base to use for our exploration of Golden Bay and Farewell Spit. The rooms were spacious and clean and very relaxing to return to after a day of walking. It was within easy reach of the supermarket and the township of Takaka.

We used this motel for 2 nights going away for a night in between. It was a good base for the area. I had a single bed that was not very comfortable. It had a saggy side and the mattress was leaning to the outside edge.

Thanks for your review, we are working towards replacing all the beds. We have only been here going on 3rd year now and unfortunately COVID hit when we took over :-( so has now taken a bit longer to afford bed replacements, but in saying that we have almost 90 % replaced all our queens, kings and Super Kings and working on our singles that are needing it too :-)

The Hohua Motel was a delight to stay with. The room was fresh, modern and extremely clean, with some lovely homely touches that made it feel not like ‘just another motel’. The bed was super comfy. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to others.
