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.

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.

Our enjoyable stay at Ocean Motel started with the smiling and informative greeting from Mel and a complimentary chilled bottle of mineral water. Our unit, although of a somewhat dated design, was spotlessly clean and all the equipment in proper working order. Apart from the occasional car and aircraft about 0700 the motel is quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed... More
