They went out of their way to make our stay a great one. The unit was clean and tidy and everything worked well. Once they knew we needed a softer bed it was attended to. Close to a beautiful beach and lots of Sky channels.

A great pet friendly motel a short distance from fabulous Wainui Beach. Very welcoming hosts, and nice big room - including spa bath - and private outside area. Genuinely pet friendly & our wee pooch was allowed into the unit with us (nice big paddock at back of motel where the dog could have a good sniff). Good selection of tv channels. When we stayed here there was a pizza cart operating in the motel car park - absolutely fantastic pizzas.

A little pricey but good wifi tv and a bed that suited me. Pet friendly so I had my dog along. The suite is huge with tv in bedroom and living area. Bench top job etc. Good toilets. Clean and tidy . With a late checkout a bonus.

Thank you Warren for taking the time to review us here at Ocean Beach, Wainui. You are quite right, our suites are large, in fact they are the largest in Gisborne and so beautifully equipped. Accommodating your beautiful little dog was a pleasure. We are happy to allow a late checkout if it is possible. We aim to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Again, thank you for taking the time to review us, it is appreciated. You're welcome back anytime. Best regards Ruth

We are all very aware of cleanliness these days and felt that the motel was a bit grubby. The floor tiles felt dirty & kitchen sink waste disgusting. Didn’t think they any extra sanitising had been done.

We stayed for two nights, the room was a good size for a family, clean and tidy. A short stroll down to one of the best beach breaks in the country. The surf wasn’t great but did catch a few nice waves. They take dogs which is rare, our courtyard needed a little more dog proofing. I left a bag in the apartment and the owners sent it via courier the next day saving a massive detour to return and pick it up. Definitely return if we’re ever back In Gisborne.
