Pioneer Motels is located in the heart of Collingwood township where you will find cafes, the Collingwood Tavern & restaurant, as well as the general store which sells the famous ‘Scallop Pies’ –  definitely worth a taste test. Our Motels are just a stroll to the beach and Aorere river.
Collingwood is located just over the Takaka Hill from Nelson which is the nearest city and domestic airport, it takes around two hours from Nelson and is a beautiful drive. The area of Golden Bay attracts thousands of tourists every year because of the fantastic scenery, Farewell Spit tours and calm ocean that surrounds the Bay. Have a look at what’s on offer in Golden Bay.


Your Hosts

We would like to welcome you to this beautiful area of New Zealand – Golden Bay. We have been holidaying in Collingwood for over 20 years and have now made this our home. We would like to extend a warm welcome to you to come and experience a relaxing break here with us at Pioneer Motels. We look forward to being of service to you in the near future.

Warm Regards,

Your hosts, Brent and Barbara Bright
