Our room was clean and comfortable with a large terrace overlooking the sea. The owners were helpful and friendly. Our only issue was the road noise. The motel is situated on a busy street. We could not shut the doors to the terrace because there was no air conditioning and sleeping was a challenge at times.

Our one bedroom room was perfect for our 2 day stay with our baby. Everything we needed was provided and the place was very clean and with modern bathroom. It is close to the shops and ample parking. The location by the beautiful beach makes it a great choice. The owners were also nice and helpful.

This motel had a nicely equipped kitchenette and a spacious living area with a view of the beach. The motel is a short walk into town to the restaurants, but the breakfast options are limited and I recommend that you stock up at the grocery store and make your own breakfast. I should also add that the proprietors of this... More

Alan and Jo have done a fantastic job. Awesome view and can't fault a thing and only a 4 minute walk to The Lost Spring. Totally recommend the Coromandel Coast it has beautiful beaches and bays the highlight would have to be cathedral cove.

We stayed here for two nights over Labour weekend. Got a call from the owner saying we left the place in a state and there will be an extra hefty charge! We left a few rinsed dishes and a pot on the bench (rinsed)!! and left the place very tidy! Ridiculous!! Also this place is way too expensive for what... More

The unit was left in a disgraceful state, we should have charged more than we did to clean it up. We do not cater for this calibre of guest! More

We stayed at Oceanside for 3 nights during our road trip around the Coromandel. We found the accommodation excellent. The location is good - a flat walk into town for restaurants and ferries. This is good choice for Whittianga.

We only stayed one night here, but I could have enjoyed at least a week. The property is located directly across from the beach, and our spacious one-bedroom unit had a large sliding glass door that led to a little sitting porch to enjoy coffee in the morning or wine in the evening as you watch the waves lap the...

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved every thing about Oceanside Motel . We stayed in an upper level unit with amazing views and a large balcony to sit and relax on.
