We looked at the options but chose to eat at Oceans. It has a great ambiance and is very comfortable with a nice bar and outside dining if the weather is fine. The options were good as was the food and very friendly service. Reasonable prices and lovely coffee.

This is a gorgeous spot for a romantic or otherwise night away from home. The view of Marina is gorgeous and the rooms spacious and everything clean and spotless. The staff are tops and will certainly go back - Thanks for being on our doorstep - your facilities are fab.

The night we were at Oceans may have just been not a good night. The restaurant was very very noisy due to a large party of drinkers, you could hardly hear what your partner was saying. The restaurant was very busy as well and with only one staff member on he was run off his feet, hence a longer waiting... More

Tutukaka is something of an undiscovered gem in northland. This resturant is in the sleepy little marina of Tutukaka associated with the only hotel in the port. Given that one would not expect superior service or food but quite the opposite. Each was fantastic. We had server all meals here as a family in early April this year and really... More

Very good quality meals and lovely staff make your Oceans restaurant & hotel experience very enjoyable and relaxing. The food generally in the north is so good and my risotto was amazing.

The first day for breakfast was very good. General breakfast foods, plus muffins and crossants. Day 2 and 3, just general breakfast food, cereal, yoghurt, etc, but no peaches, as on day 1, even though they were requested and no muffins or crossants. So food was average. Dinner was better. We had one meal there. The service was not great,... More
