8/10 Very good

Nice and clean room. Private porch in the back for the morning coffee or evening wine. 3 minutes walk to the beach to see the sunrise (weather permitting). Pizza trailer arrives at around 5 pm. We were pleased with everything except the heating that was blowing directly on the bed. A bit uncomfortable.

8/10 Very good

A well presented property which had privacy and good parking. Only negative is the shower which should have a curtain to prevent water splashing all over the bathroom which is also used for dressing due to the only mirror being in the bathroom.

Better than the VaxPass asking place down the Rd
At least Ocean Beach motel are friendly and welcoming and arent still asking for Covd Vax Passes like their nearest competitor.... Clean tidy & friendly place. Bed comfort was a 6/10 and the walls are rather sound conductive. Wd stay again though :)

The property was under refurbishment or something as there was scaffolding all over the place, however the apartment we stayed in was lovely and clean and tidy. There was plenty of space for our family with a fully equipped kitchen and lounge area to relax. The beds however were uncomfortable and there weren’t enough pillows which was definitely a downside for us.

4/10 Fair

Not impressed, after a long trip we just wanted to take a nap. No aircon, there’s a ceiling fan that helps a little. Carpets smelled like wet dog. A lot of flies. Room was very outdated. Cups and glasses were dirty. Really did not enjoy this stay, quite expensive for Gisborne. Floors were sticky and very dangerous to shower as it’s very slippery. Price is - $60 more than other properties in the area and in my opinion not worth it, the property needs a lot of TLC.
