Torlesse Motel was one of the best places that we stayed throughout New Zealand. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The offered a washing machine in the room as well which was great since this was about the halfway point of our trip. The rooms also offered a kitchen and large balcony overlooking the sea.

Arrived at the motel completely drenched! Host was very accommodating and had prepared our room and kept it warm as we needed it! Very clean unit. Don't forget to go out and about to experience gorgeous views of the beach.

We checked out online with TripAdvisor the price of a room in the morning at $147NZ. Not wanting to commit to arriving that evening we did not book. We however did arrive in Kaiteriteri that evening and asked at the motel if they still had rooms available. The lady at reception stated that she only had one room left at...

We made our stay longer as it was such a great location, the room was bright and clean and hosts lance and kris were amazing. The beach is beautiful and only a short stroll into the main centre with easy access to the abel Tasman national park area.

We only had a few waking hours in Little Kaiteriteri. We got a friendly greeting, and a most excellent recommendation where to stay at our next stop (Hanmer Springs - so thanks for that great tip). Our room was at the top of the facility. Nice view. Very clean inside and on the grounds. Spacious - loads of floor space...

We stayed here passing through and were pleasantly surprised how great it was. The whole town. We wished we had longer here. The accomodation is so clean and well set out.
