Ocean View Motel
Ranked #2 of 9 Ohope B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Unbeatable location amidst lush vegetation. Just across quiet road from beach with good views of Whale Island. Older style self-catering accommodation, but spacious and clean. Friendly and helpful hosts. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Preferred rooms are upstairs with good views and balconies.

What a great place to stay! my husband and I stayed at the Ocean View Motel for 3 nights and came back for a couple more nights a week later...very clean, great location right across the road from a beautiful beach! Ohope is a wonderful quiet seaside community less then 10 min drive from a bigger town with all amnenities .We did not want to leave... Our host, Glynis and Pat were amazing, we hope to visit again and would highly recommend it!

As well as great Veiws from the Penthouse, we loved the layout of the motel pluss the Wellcome and good value we received. The upstairs unit was clean and tidy and had everything we wanted.
we also enjoyed walking along the beach which was just over the road.

Friendly hosts and an immaculately clean motel maked for a pleasant weekend away. Located in the quiet West End immediately across from the beach, an ideal location. The one bedroom unit had everything that is required for a few days away.

I would certainly be happy to stay again.

I certainly will stay again at this Motel. Nothing was to much trouble. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Clean, comfortable and well equiped. The views from the apartments are outstanding. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: I would recommend choosing an end apartment. We did have rather noisey neighbours.

We spent one night here on our way to Gisborne. The ocean front apartment (there are only three units) is huge, private, and very well furnished. The cable, large TV had a huge selection of stations, the wifi worked well, the kitchen was large and very well equipped, the furniture was modern and comfortable, the balcony was excellent, the bath and entire unit was clean. We can highly recommend the motel and the area. The owner was receptive and efficient and very helpful. A short, but memorable stay!

Stunning location and extremely hospitable owners made even just one night here an absolute pleasure. It was a stunning, hot day and we were greeted with cold drinks and fresh fruit. Later on we availed of the gas barbeque and ate on the grassy area just in front of the beach. The owners were really helpful in making our stay as comfortable as possible. The unit itself is gorgeous (with view from just about anywhere you stand). All utilities were available and the place was spotless. Would definitely stay here again, well worth the short drive from Whakatane.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'penthouse' unit 3 and it lives up to its name. Slept four comfortably, bu...
