          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.

          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 :)
