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

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 The shower was outdated, with mould on the extrusions and ceiling.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

Stayed for 1 night before going into Wellington. On the way back from south island, we stayed here again. Large rooms and very very quiet grounds. Hosts were exceptional and friendly. Rooms were spotless and kitchen was clean. Bathroom large. Unfortunately, no view of Paraparaumu Beach but thats fine.

Chilled out here for three days before moving on to Wellington and South Island . The hosts , Mel and Thomas , were charming and really welcoming . We spent a very pleaseant sunny afternoon with them eating Korean food and drinking Australian wine . Lovely people ! The room was spacious and spotlessly clean . Highly recommended !
