We stayed here for 1 night and found the staff very friendly and helpful. We had a nice courtyard off the bedroom to use. There is a guest laundry that has a free washing machine and free washing powder, if you need to dry your clothes in the dryer it only costs $2. The room was very clean and tidy,... More

Lovely stay for one night on New Year's Eve. Very attentive owner who offered to carry our bags in, as we had to park a little away from the unit. The owner even dropped my husband back at our car down in Raumati South after we had left it there after the New Years celebrations. Comfy bed and the unit... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay The Ocean Motel, Mel and Thomas were just lovely. We stayed the night before in a hotel that was to say the least terrible, so it was really good to find a good one. If we come back to Paraparaumu we will be staying in The Ocean Motel. Mel also showed us how... More

As I have family and business in Wellington, I travel to the region on at least a monthly basis. Since writing my last review on the Ocean Motels I have stayed there five more times. A great motel is not just about buildings and location, but about the people who run it. Mel and Thomas are tremendous hosts who have... More

The bedding was lovely, the kitchenette well provided, an ironing board, wardrobe with coat hangers. Towels. flannels, soap etc nicely set out in bathroom. Hair dryer an option if you want... More

From the moment I called for a room that night, the attention to anything I needed was offered without having to ask. A plate of fresh fruit was even brought to our room at no extra charge, while we felt comfortable and happy with everything we requested - the room was very tidy, clean, modern, and the heater was turned...

Stayed here as an option to staying in city. Was very disappointed. While room was spotless, it was very small. The shower was outdated, with mould on the extrusions and ceiling. The owner was lovely and friendly. She brought an extra blanket and fruit on our arrival.

We stay one night with friends in the two bedroom unit. What a wonderful greeting we received when we arrived and we hadn't even booked. We were asked if we would like to view the room to see if it was suitable. The room motel was very clean and tidy with a lovely little courtyard through the doors off the... More

We stayed one night after taking the ferry from Picton. The hotel is a short walk to the town center, convenient, clean, comfortable, and blessed with thoughtful hosts. We were tired after a long day and the manager offered to bring us hot dinners which were delicious full meals -- perfect for us.

We stayed two nights at this motel and we were very good. The room was clean and comfortable. The place is very quiet, close to the town center and shops near the beach. Little courtyard at the back of the room with table and chairs and free wifi. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We were so good that... More
