Oceanside Motel Whitianga
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Whitianga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 October 2017

Stayed for three nights at the end of school holidays and had a fab time. The motel is right across the road from a lovely beach but still walking distance to town. Really really clean , older style units but has been tastefully renovated and has everything you need. Bedroom quite small but good sized lounge/dining. Hosts very friendly and gave good recommendations on places to eat etc

We felt like we won lotto when we found this motel right on beach. It was a smaller type room tbut the unit was clean, useful, practical and really tasteful. But oh my goodness the view was to die for. I have never had such a nice view when staying in a motel, it was so lovely. It really relaxed us and it was good. The wifi worked ok, the servicing was really good. We slept really well and had a lovely time. Les and Jill where really neat to meet.

Room Tip: Book ahead, I am sure many know of this gem.

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
