Murchison, Nelson

Mataki Motel


Peace and quiet in a rural setting but only a 4-minute stroll to the centre of town.

Here in Murchison there is plenty for you to do. A fantastic golf course, swimming holes in the beautiful Buller River, an interesting museum and a lovely art gallery. We are the closest accommodation and offer transport to the Old Ghost bike trail (Lyell end) and can transport or drive to either end. The longest swing bridge in New Zealand is only a 13-minute drive away and home to the Nature Flames. If you're a keen outdoors person then we have great fishing spots, lots of wonderful walking tracks, and for the more adventurous you can go jet boating, kayaking or rafting. So whatever YOU want to do on your holiday, there is something for everyone in Murchison, and the Mataki Motel is the place to stay.

We have 6 spacious, executive studio units, 2 self-contained 2-bedroom units (sleep 4-6) with shower over spa bath and 2 self-contained 1-bedroom units with full kitchens and carports. We also offer 6 standard studio units.

All units are on the ground floor with 9 TV channels. A guest laundry, playground, BBQ and swimming pool are all available for guest use. Free WiFi for those that need to keep in touch with the outside world and we do offer family discounts so please ask at the time of booking.

We pride ourselves on making your stay as relaxing as possible and our units are very sunny and warm. Having lived here for many years, we can give you all the right advice and help for whatever you want to do. We look forward to meeting you and helping you create a special holiday.
