I certainly will stay again at this Motel. Nothing was to much trouble. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Clean, comfortable and well equiped. The views from the apartments are outstanding. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: I would recommend choosing an end apartment. We did have rather noisey neighbours.

We spent one night here on our way to Gisborne. The ocean front apartment (there are only three units) is huge, private, and very well furnished. The cable, large TV had a huge selection of stations, the wifi worked well, the kitchen was large and very well equipped, the furniture was modern and comfortable, the balcony was excellent, the bath and entire unit was clean. We can highly recommend the motel and the area. The owner was receptive and efficient and very helpful. A short, but memorable stay!

Stunning location and extremely hospitable owners made even just one night here an absolute pleasure. It was a stunning, hot day and we were greeted with cold drinks and fresh fruit. Later on we availed of the gas barbeque and ate on the grassy area just in front of the beach. The owners were really helpful in making our stay as comfortable as possible. The unit itself is gorgeous (with view from just about anywhere you stand). All utilities were available and the place was spotless. Would definitely stay here again, well worth the short drive from Whakatane.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'penthouse' unit 3 and it lives up to its name. Slept four comfortably, but definitely room for more. Just one private room (double) and one bathroom for everyone though, in case that's important to people.

We arrived in Ohope on a very stormy and rainy day. Not the kind of weather you want to have at a beach resort. But it did not matter much as we stayed at beautiful Ocean View Motel. The owners are very welcoming and the views from the cosy upstairs apartment onto the sea (and up to White Island in good weather) are superb. After all, a great place to make yourself comfortable, even on a rainy day!

Over 17 years I have used this motel on a regular basis for my business, however over the last 10 years while retired I still go there, I rate it as the best motel in NZ, its place right on the beach, views, service, friendly operators, clean and well priced.
Near bye is cafes, takaways, but each unit has a cooking place.
2 units at the rear still have great views, the large upstairs unit has outstanding views, you can see White Island from the decks, great surf beach but safe swimming. You will find the owners really helpful and The Cleaning Lady has been there over 16 years and with only 3 units they are kept in great order, need to book. 5 minutes drive by car from Whakatane, If planning trip from Auckland to Gisborne this is the best place to stop.

Room Tip: 2 units at rear are bit cheaper and still excellent views, the big upstairs front unit has 360 views all units are quiet and contain everything you need, owners live front downstairs and nothing is too much trouble, my pick unit 1 or 3
