We flew to Paraparaumu for a steam train trip. Mel picked us up from airport, took us back, took us to the train station. Weather was atrocious so trip cancelled and we took trains to Wellington for day. Mel had heaters on when we got back. Handy walking distance to town to food, supplies, beach, x. Room (9) was very...

The beautiful Kapiti Coast and value for money the Ocean Motel had it all. Nice and clean, good heating, quiet, very friendly and obliging staff. I would recommend to anyone wanting accommodation that is not a ridiculous price.

A inoffensive large room that was very cold, probably fine in the summer when heating is not an issue. On the plus side: Absolutely spotlessly clean through out, the bed was, big, comfortable and made with fabulously crisp linen and thanks to the electric blanket gratefully warm. Lovely white fluffy towels and plenty of hot water for the shower. A... More

Master bedroom was comfortable with an extra single bed. The 2nd bedroom was large with 3 single beds. A family of 5 fitted into this unit fine there was plenty of room. It... More

The star of the stay is Mal - what an incredible hostess. We had travelled from Wellington by bus so she offered to take us to the beachfront with our gear to go to Kapiti Island. She kindly stored our luggage while we were away. On our return she took us to the bus stop and provided coffee as well.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Motel very clean and tidy. Our unit was quite small and a little cramped but had everything you needed. It was ideal for a night, comfortable bed and very quiet. Heater worked well and the spa bath was great..

I recently stayed for four nights at the Ocean Motel whilst on business in Paraparaumu, and opted for the "one bedroom villa". The villa itself was very spacious and with a double bed and three single beds in a separate room could have easily accommodated a family. Whilst the décor and furnishings were relatively aged / "old school", it was... More

We stayed one night in the one bedroom villa. It was spacious, clean and had full cooking facilities. The owner went out of her way to be welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay there again and recommend.
