    Equestrian Lodge Motel......much more than a motel
    We stayed here three the end of our 18 days on the South Island of New Zealand. What a find! This motel is like a home away from home.......a spacious suite.....very well equipped kitchen and bath.....a heated pool just outside our door.......grill and picnic table where we enjoyed a steak dinner.....laundry facility with ironing board and extra freezer space......and a lawn and flower gardens that is nicer than our own yard. We took a coastal cruise on a water taxi from Kaiteriteri (about a 15 - 20 minute drive from the motel), and hiked one of the trails in the Abel Tasman National Park. The Equestrian Lodge Motel is conveniently located for a visit to Abel Tasman and Golden Bay. Lisa and Nathan (the owners) are very welcoming, and have made continuous enhancements to this property in the nine years they have owned it. We enjoyed our stay here, and you will too.

    Very clean and in a great location.
    Great service. They really go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. We wanted to cook and didn't want to buy a whole bottle of oil for one time use, so they let us use theirs.

    Very Good8.0
    Great stopover for Abel Tasman
    Nice place, even better owners! Would love to stay here again - they were so welcoming, spent time giving tips and advice on local activities & restaurants. Motel is a little off the main road in town, a short walk to the city center, but set in a nice, secluded garden. Slightly older facilities, but well-kept!
