“Clean, quiet, comfortable, well located to both Taranaki and New Plymouth.”
Reviewed April 24, 2010

This was at least the second time, and probably the third, that we've stayed at the Oakura Beach Motel. We wanted to spend some time hiking around Taranaki and also poking around New Plymouth, neither of which we had done for several years. This motel isn't fancy, but it certainly has everything we needed or wanted and we really like how accessible it is to both Taranaki and New Plymouth. The Tasman Sea is right down at the bottom of the road, an easy walk to an excellent beach which is good for walking, running, or just sightseeing. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful in providing information about other things to see on our trip, one of which was artist Nigel Ogle's Tawhiti Museum (www.tawhitimuseum.com), which is widely acclaimed as the best private museum in the country. It has to be seen to be believed, but we would never have known about this jewel had they not given us a brochure. They also have a beautifully catalogued and extensive DVD collection for their guests' use. We dined one night at the award-winning Okukurukuru Winery just south of New Plymouth, and were both extremely pleased with our meals. We will definitely be staying at the Oakura Beach Motel again the next time we're down in that area.
