    Nothing flash - a good basic motel. Nice and quiet this time of year. Place felt a little faded. Had to climb onto the sofa to turn the heater on (remote wasn't functional). Some of the kitchen wear was a little chipped etc. But hey...More

    This little motel is tidy and clean and unadorned. Not quite plain, but perfectly comfy. The point of this nicely landscaped place is the BAY....right outside of your door! The views are charming and you are steps away from a long, open, gorgeous beach....with mountains...More

    Nothing to fault here. We stayed one night in unit 8 but could have happily stayed longer. A clean, comfortable and quiet motel in a beautiful location, about 30 seconds walk to the beach. Friendly and helpful customer service. Would happily return.

    This motel lived up to its star reviews. Excellent spot right on the beach. Well appointed and clean with the best beds of our trip. The owner was great and helped us upstairs with our luggage. Would return any time.

    Hi Cathi, Thanks for your enquiry. Nelson is about a two hour drive from Pohara. You go over the Takaka Hill which is a winding road, but sealed. Look forward to hearing from you :)
