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.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great clean and affordable motel in little town in golden bay area. Friendly staff on check in. Modern and very clean decor. Nice stay. If never been to this area I might have checked out the beach town near the falls to stay as it was more lively during the day and evening. Sundays in Takaka are very quiet. Almost everything closed. Roots bar nice for dinner and drink two buildings down the road

Stayed overnight ahead of starting the Heaphy Track (50 min drive to the start point, which is only another 20min longer than Collingwood which had no vacancies). A nice bonus was being able to store our bikes safely in a lock up overnight but we could still access them early enough the next day for our early start). Another nice bonus was the 2 minute walk to Roots Bar for an early dinner. The room itself was super clean and tidy (pics offer an accurate representation). The layout with 2 singles in one room and a double in the living area was spot-on for our group of 3 singles. Location was quite and peaceful on the outskirts of town, (and in a smaller town the centre is still only a few minutes walk away). Hosts very friendly, helpful (we booked directly with them), and accommodating of our needs. Very good value for money, esp when split amongst 3 paying adults, and provided us with a fantastic springboard into the Heaphy. We would definitely stay here again if doing the same thing, or if staying in Golden Bay/Takaka for a few days.

The room was clean and nice with beautiful view. It is also very close to the supermarket - FreshChoice. The staff were also helpful. Overall, it was a good experience, and I would recommend this motel to others.

Lovely and clean. Close to shops. Plenty of equipment in kitchen for cooking etc. Found it annoying that tv was set at a volume which made it hard to hear. In the middle of the night we had a cat that wanted to come in!! Loved the cattle in the paddock nearby.

This motel is well situated at the start of the main street, offering easy access without the feel of being surrounded, not that Takaka is big enough to give you that feel! The neighbours are cattle, offering peaceful mooing at times during the night. We loved that. Clean, well equipped. I'd simply go back there without checking options.

The motel complex had everything we needed including great laundry facilities. The reason we booked this motel initially was that it had Sky tv being rugby enthusiasts & the All Blacks were playing one evening. Wouldn't book anywhere else now, great location to shops and restaurant for dinner.

Mohua Motel was a great place to relax after a couple of busy days exploring Golden Bay. Very clean, comfortable beds, an easy place to stay. The TV's on the wall in the lounge and bedrooms were too small to see from the couch/bed and the fan in the bathroom was not effective. However, great overall service.

I stayed just one night as I was in Takaka for work. The Motel host was welcoming and gave me information about the tides for a swim at Tata Beach, nearby. I found the bathroom and the bedroom spaces impeccably clean and the bed very comfortable. The wifi was good as well. Definitely recommend staying at Mohua Motel.
