I have stayed in a lot of motels throughout New Zealand and overseas and the Ocean Motel ranks among the best for price, service, quality and location. Our room was tastefully decorated, well set out and spotlessly clean. The service from the owners was exceptional. We arrived on New Years eve and departed the following day and we were given...

Mel is the friendliest host you could wish for. Everything we needed in our room and very clean. Close to the airport, the beach and the shops. This motel is advertised as 'quiet' and despite being near the airport, we found it to be very quiet. We will be back!

Perfect little place to stay. Everything you need, quiet and comfortable with exceptionally friendly/nice host Mel to welcome us. It isn't a big city luxury place with loads of services and facilities... just a very nice simple place to stay. Would be very happy to stay again if we were in the area

My husband and I initially booked two nights in this motel but stayed for an extra night as we enjoyed it so much! The owners could not have been more accommodating. Every detail was thought of from biscuits in the room to generous tea and coffee, good internet connection, wide selection of tv channels, heating, electric blankets, cooking facilities. The...

The hostess at Ocean Motel would have to one the of the nicest, warmest person you could ever meet. My wife and I were blown away by her incredible loveless. The facility is kept immaculate and very comfortable. We would not be able to fault anything about our stay here. We would recommend this motel to anyone who is looking... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Ocean Motel in a Queen Studio unit. The units are older, but they are very clean and have everything you need for an overnight stay. Quiet location and easy walking distance to the shops and beach. The host Mel, is lovely and couldn't be more obliging, she even picked us up... More

This motel does not have ocean views as the name suggests but is a short drive from the ocean. The room was spacious, comfortable bed and couch and was also clean. The bathroom was not too roomy but was adequate for our needs. It was in a quiet area and a good nights sleep was achieved.

Drizzling rain when we arrived after drive up from Wellington airport and Mel appeared out of nowhere with an umbrella to welcome us. After Checkin she showed us where to park and took us to our room where she had already put the heater on as it was quite cold and bleak outside. The room ( unit 3) was large... More
