Motueka, Tasman and Nelson - Top of New Zealand's South Island.

Motueka is situated in the sunny Tasman region at the top of New Zealand's South Island. It is well located for trips to Nelson, Mapua, the Moutere, the Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes and Kahurangi national parks, Kaiteriteri and for day forays to Golden Bay over Takaka Hill. Its glorious climate, safe swimming beaches and water sports makes it the ideal summer holiday location. Its walking tracks, fishing rivers, arts, crafts, wineries, vineyards and outdoor activities makes it an all year round New Zealand destination.

Take a tour of the Nelson region's local wineries, vineyards, artists and galleries, or explore the golden beaches of Kaiteriteri - only a 15 minute drive away. Visit Golden Bay and take an organised 4WD trip along the Farewell Spit to view unique wildlife (including the gannet colony) and landscapes. While travelling to or from Golden Bay, discover the world's clearest springs at Pupu Springs. We'll happily book your local excursions or activities.

The Motueka 18 hole golf course is only a 5 minute walk down the road. This prestigious course has a seaside layout and is playable all year round. Golf clubs and carts are available for hire from the pro-shop. Anyone, at any level, is welcome.

For the trampers (hiking or hill walking) amongst you, the hills of the Kahurangi National Park can be seen from the motel gardens. You can even see Farewell Spit from the top of Mt Arthur on a clear day.

A friendly and relaxed family environment is always here for you. We believe that once you stay with us, you will want to return.
