This is a really relaxing and comfortable place. Close to the beach and we had the most beautiful sea view! The room is cleaner then my home and when we where out on a walk the owners hanged out our clothes to dry and did our dishes. They do this because they love what they do and that really makes...

Stayed here with family of 5. Two bedrooms and bed settee. Accommodation was spotless with a fantastic view from the balcony. It was a flying visit but we could have stayed a lot longer. The area has so much to see and do. Would like to return one day.

Our room was beautiful & clean with a nice view, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated the in-room washing machine and complimentary detergent. We would have liked to stay longer.

We stayed at the Torlesse Motels for three nights. The hosts were fantastic, offering plenty of information about restaurants and things to do, also turned on our heater for us on a very cold evening when we were out so came back to a lovely warm room. The motels are very clean and well equipped. Would definitely stay again.

We recently stayed one night. Had ground floor unit which I think might be their cheaper option. Nothing wrong with it though. Is very roomy, much larger than most motel units. Well equipped and nice and clean. Close to action at Kaiteriteri. We would happily stay there again. Highly recommended from us.

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Recommended tours and activities as we hadn't booked anything in advance. I picked this motel for its location as we wanted to venture to see the Abel Tasman National Park. It was max 10 minutes walk from where the ferries left (although you could drive and park if you wanted to). Lovely views from sea... More
