Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were on a driving tour thru New Zealand for a month and this was best place we stayed at. We had thought we would need a rest so had deliberately chosen a quiet place. This was a huge apartment with a balcony and a view directly onto the beach: good facilities bed/bathroom / kitchen : 5 mins walk to cafe/ restaurants.Not much to do but that was why we were here: wander up and down the never ending beach.

Fabulous motel - not the most modern but clean, comfortable, and roomy. Fantastic location on dead end street and over the road from The best beach in the world! And the Ocean View is genuinely pet friendly. We discovered some other places were “pet friendly” providing your pet stayed locked in your car or the motel owner’s garage, but at Ocean View our wee pooch was welcome inside the unit. Our first ever visit to Ohope - but we’ll be back!

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

Location: This motel is in a dead-end street, so very quiet and relaxed. The beach is right across the street, so as close as it gets. Ohope itself is a small settlement, 5 minutes drive (or 30-50 minutes walk) from Whakatane. Ocean View Motel is on the western end of the very long beach - that's where the surf is best, swimming is also safe. The beach is endless and like most NZ beaches pretty empty (for a European) - for us it was just perfect. You can jog or walk along the beach or through the bush, explore some coves/bays - without having to drive anywhere. The motel is also only 3-5 minutes walk away from the Ohope shops/restaurants.

Accommodation: The rooms were very clean, as was the whole property (well, at least the parts we got to see). The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, so self-catering is not a problem. (Next supermarket is in Whakatane) You can also borrow body-boards and kayaks for free, using the washing machine and wi-fi is also free.

To sum-up, for us this was a perfect location: quiet, peaceful, close to beach and walks, but also to town/shops/restaurant, beautiful setting. We will definitely stay there again next time we get to NZ. Value for money is excellent here.

You cannot fault the position of this motel, right on glorious Ohope beach. We stayed in the penthouse which had a fully appointed kitchen and large living room - all very comfortable - and included a balcony overlooking the blue waters of the Bay of Plenty. The hosts were very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble. An absolute pleasure to stay here. Try a walk on the beach before breakfast, do go on the walk around the headland.

This was a lovely motel, superb location, and the owner couldn't have been more welcoming. Very comfortable accommodation and beautiful views of the ocean from the penthouse. We would have loved to have been able to stay longer.

What a superb spot!! Penthouse suite with views to White Island, and only a few metres to the beautiful beach. Accommodation was clean, modern and spacious, with all facilities needed to complete the deal. Hosts Glynis & Pat were always on ready with a cheerie wave and a hello and only to happy to make us feel welcome. Thanks

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!
