This was the view from our room. Beautiful beach just across the road. Short stroll to restaurants, pub, shops & boat harbour. Our room was warm & cosy. Our king size bed was so comfy with soft cloud like pillows. Such a relaxing place to stay

We stayed here for one night on a weekend that was a mixture of business and pleasure. The booking system worked well and we had one of the older apartments. This was fine. The arrangement of the rooms is a bit odd, in that you open the back door and are next to the toilet and into the bathroom. Better to come in the sliders from the ocean side. Our one gripe was the bed which we found too soft and a little old. You know, the ones that sag in the middle so you both roll towards each other.

Room Tip: Go for the newer rooms if you do not mind paying a few more dollars.

Hi Neil,
Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback on your stay at The Oceanside - we really appreciate it. Thank you for raising the issue surrounding our bed we will look into fixing this as soon as possible as we like our guests to be as comfortable as possible during their stay. Yes we agree the beach sliders are the best doors to enter and exit from as they lead you right to the beach and path towards town.
Again thank you so much for reviewing your stay and we hope we see you again.
Thank You

We were a little early but room was ready. Very easy and pleasant check in from owner. These folks also run the Sea Cave Adventures that we went on yesterday. Room is excellent, upper level with large glass front opening to big balcony. Ocean is right across the road so lots of beautiful music of waves crashing in. Bath has big soaking tub combination shower. Works great as we used it after being in the ocean in the afternoon. Great sleep all three nights, wished we could have stayed longer. Excellent location, right across the road from the big sandy beach and ocean, you can easily walk down town to food and other attractions. This motel is owned and operated by the same people that run the Sea Cave Adventure Tour, which is an excellent tour. Both Les and Jill are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Hi Kenneth,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us here at The Oceanside Motel, we really appreciate hearing all the feedback from each of our guests. Yes, our upper level rooms are pretty great, the elevation gives that little bit of an extra view. Our location is pretty great to get around and see everything Whitianga has to offer, only a short walk along the beachside to get to all the great eateries. So glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip with Les on Sea Cave Adventures, it is a great trip and a lot of our guests take advantage of booking a trip down in reception.
Thank you again for writing such a kind review and we do hope to see you again in the future.
Les & Jill
