Gary and Karen welcome you to Golden Bay Motel

We offer you friendly personal service, and the perfect location to stay a while to experience what Golden Bay has to offer – including beautiful beaches, National Parks, Cape Farewell and Pupu Springs. We are only a few minutes walk to Takaka township where you will find shops, cafes and restaurants – and we are just 9 kms from the beach. Our spacious, sunny accommodation consists of a selection of 9 clean, quiet and comfortable, self contained ground floor units. These are made up of studio, one bedroom, and family units with two or three bedrooms. All units overlook our large lawn and attractive garden with children’s play area. There is plenty of parking for boats and trailers, covered parking for motorbikes and secure garaging for mountain bikes.

Please feel free to phone us on 0800 40 12 12 or 03 525 9428 to make a personalised booking. Because each room is configured differently, this will ensure that you receive advice about the most suitable room for you.

Alternatively you can book online via our Little Hotelier booking page.

traveller-reviewsReally well stocked kitchen equipment including coffee plunger and glass bowls of good size for microwave, and a real stove and full sized fridge/freezer.

traveller-reviewsOlder motel, but more room than some of the more expensive places I have stayed and a lovely town. Very clean and owners could not have done more.

traveller-reviewsGreat stay, very comfortable. We were made to feel welcome from the start. Good area out back of motel for kids to play, kick a ball etc easy walking distance to town. Will be back to stay again. Really felt like a holiday.

traveller-reviewsThe motelliers were delightful and most helpful with any questions I had. Just really liked the atmosphere of the unit as well. Nothing was a bother. Everything was spick and span. Would certainly like to stay there again.

traveller-reviewsThis property is well kept and maintained as it is of the older style. It was very clean and had lovely grounds out the back. Everything was very comfortable. Couldn’t fault it and would go back.

traveller-reviewsVery friendly welcome with excellent suggestions about local restaurants and amenities Spacious bedrooms, spotlessly clean and tidy. The owners clearly take great pride in what they offer.

traveller-reviewsOur Studio was light, clean and roomy – king-sized bed and seating area. Separate door to the kitchenette which could be closed. Pleasant garden. We liked it so much that we decided to stay another 3 nights and would stay there again if in NZ. Walking distance to village and restaurants.

traveller-reviewsWe were greeted like old friends when we arrived and made to feel welcome. The rooms were lovely and well presented and every thing was clean. Our towels were changed daily and the teas and coffees we refilled. I would certainly stay there again and would recommend them to friends travelling in that area.
