Kate was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Rooms were modern and tidy with a surprising amount of space considering we were a group of 8 girls. We had to pool to ourselves most of the time. It was very quiet with no disturbances. We loved the short distance to Wainui Beach! I would definitely return here to stay.

A hidden gem! Clean, tidy, modern and with amazing service. Ideal location away from the noise but still very close to all local amenities. Exceptional value for money and a fantastic experience. Hamish and Kate, the two hosts, took great care of us and we will definitely visit them soon again. Thank you Oasis!

Room Tip: Sponge beach is a must!

Great location in that it is NOT in the central city, which was good for us as we wanted to just relax with our dog, but for people who have no wheels this might be a problem. 10 min walk from Sponge Bay which is a great place for throwing sticks in the sea for the dog to fetch (but not really a swimming beach). Being Gisborne, there are plenty of other beaches within 5-10 min drive.
Staff were really friendly, and being able to take the dog was great. The room was simple but clean and functional, with quite a heavy duty carpet and no or little underlay (probably due to being a pet room). This made the floor quite cold, and combined with the cool breeze from the ocean meant a nice cool room in the summer, but might be a bit too cool in the winter. However, there is a heat pump, so no problem there. The fridge wasn't noisy, the shower wasn't too hot too cold or too weak, there were free soaps, shampoo, tea, coffee as you'd expect, in general a great room! My only niggle would be the fact that there was no sink in the kitchen, but for this type of room I guess that is the norm. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: If you're paranoid about road noise then keep away from the end two units, but with the windows closed and heat pump on noise isn't really a problem.

Hi Smcananey
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough and thoughtful review of Motel Oasis! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with your lovely and very well behaved dog. :)
It was a pleasure to have you and we hope to see you all again. Next time we recommend a one bedroom unit for you – it has the kitchen sink! We wish you a very Happy New Year!

Kate and Hamish are tending the place and they are doing a good job. They even help out in the tidying of the rooms which shows the kind of work culture they have. The rooms are clean and the wifi works well. The bed is comfy and it really comes with everything you need - a washer, dryer, microwave, electric kettle, heater, fan and aircon. Hamish even came to help out when we had a flat tyre. I'm really glad i stayed with them.

Hi Sheena
Thank you so much for your lovely review of Motel Oasis! You and your new husband were an absolute delight to host and we very much enjoyed the few days you had here with us. It was a pleasure to see you off enjoying all Gisborne’s sites and attractions, you packed a lot in during your stay! It is gratifying to know you were comfortable and had everything you needed in your room. Hamish was only too happy to help with the tyre.
We wish you both all the very best during the rest of your honeymoon in New Zealand. We would love to welcome you again if you ever return to Gisborne!
Kind regards
Hamish & Kate
