We made an early evening booking and arrived later than we expected. The room was warm and toasty. Everything was so functional but attractively presented. We were surprised that so much though thought had gone into the design and everytrhing worked so well . Our hosts were helpful and offered a continental breakfast if we wished. The Wi-Fi was strong...

Very clean hotel with great location for Abel Tasman National Park and Golden Bay. Walking distance to Takaka, including nearby grocery store. Convenient laundry facilities in hotel, with great recommendations from staff on local attractions. Farewell spit and Northern tip of NZ's South Island is an easy 1-hour drive away...don't miss that. Be aware of two points. First, getting back...

Thank you for your "Top Choice in Golden Bay" review. The grocery store and Takaka Township are just a hop, skip and jump away from Mohua Motels so very convenient. We look forward to welcoming you back to Mohua Motels maybe sometime in the future.

With weather closing in, we left the West coast earlier than planned and so arrived late in Takaka with no booking. The lovely hosts at Mohua didn't mind us showing up at 10pm. The room was spotless, comfortable, and quiet - was set back from the road. The following day, we were able to store our bags during the day,...

Handy and modern place to stay. Awesome sheridan towels (a real treat) and spacious room. The owner gave us excellent directions for the local attractions. The only reason I marked this down was because I thought the mattress was a tad uncomfortable. We'd definitely stay again.

I thought we had seen the best Motel, but this one takes a lot of beating. Very well run, clean and modern, with ease of travel within the Abel Tasmin National Park and not to far from Farewell Spit. Ideal in every way. The owners Lenaire and Paul couldn't have been more friendlier and helpful.

Situated as you enter Takaka it is ideally situated to explore the town and the wider Golden Bay area The rooms are spacious and clean and there is a guest laundry which is separate from any of the rooms so no noise! Plenty of parking and the supermarket is only 2mins walk away. Would stay here again.

Mohua Motels are a great base from which to explore the Abel Tasmin National Park. The self catering apartments though functional in appearance from the outside are immaculate and extremely well thought out inside.
