Well managed motel just out of Gisborne but stones throw from the beach. Very quiet and 1 bedroom units spacious, clean and airy. Would definitely use property again. Although there is no restaurant there are plenty 10 minutes up the road.

Booked the 2 bedroom apartment, really clean and modern and lots of space for a family of 4. Good kitchen and nice courtyard to sit in. Close to local shop and a short walk to beach. Only small problem was the outside light was very bright and the children found it annoying when trying to get to sleep, though it did go off later in the night.

Hi Suzanne
Thank you very much for your great review. We are pleased you enjoyed all that we have to offer at Ocean Beach. Thank you for your comments regarding the outdoor lighting affecting the children's bedroom. Our lights are timed to turn off just after 9.30pm, to give guests a chance to return from an evening out and get safely to their rooms. We do appreciate this can be late for children however, and we will look into the blind situation of this particular bedroom and see what may be able to be done to prevent light shining in.
Thank you once again for taking the time to share your experience with others and the helpful critique, it is appreciated.
Kind regards
Hamish and Kate

Very well set out unit equipped with everything we needed - we were pleasantly surprised. Well maintained and excellent service. Staff very friendly and helpful. Quiet location/room with private courtyard and outdoor furniture. Very reasonable price considering the quality of the facilities and service.

We stayed here recently when attending a friends 40th birthday party. Loved our large apartment, we had group of friends back the morning after for a big breakfast on the bbq and the owners were great about it - helping get things set up. Had'nt been to Gisborne before but we are now keen to return, can't think of a better place to soak up some summer sunshine. Beautiful beach across the road.

Room Tip: We shared a two bedroom with another couple - plenty of room, great kitchen, can't remember the...

the room was perfect ... aesthetically pleasing, a private outdoor space, welcoming, impeccably clean and the management was helpful, kind and generous. If you reserve on their website, you get a bottle of local wine and a generous cheese and fruit board. Good value for the money.
