Hard working, helpful and friendly staff and a motel with a good range of fittings and facilities. Clean and comfortable.
Only downside was the traffic through the night, presumably increased by the current closure of the rail line to the town which will hopefully be resolved by some foresight by those concerned.
Lovely beach very close by.
A good base for exploring the area.
Useful laundry; didn't use the pool.

I recently went to Gisborne with a group of friends for a mini reunion. We all managed to get a booking at the same hotel for the duration of the stay. From the moment we arrived the staff at the hotel were friendly, welcoming and made our trip and experience wonderful. The rooms were clean and serviced daily and staff were accommodating with every request (and when you have over 25 people in one group including children this can be quite challenging). The motel also has bikes and scooters available for guests.
Overall I would highly recommend Oasis Motel (two thumbs up)!

This hotel is an absolute bargain. Located a 4 minute drive to the town centre it has everything we could ask for. Fresh milk and a drink on arrival, pool, laundry and push bikes all at our disposal. Room was large, bed was amazingly comfortable. Shower worked well! Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling through Gisborne. Staff are warm and welcoming and nothing is too difficult. Thank you for having us

Oasis Motel is one of the nicest motels I've every stayed at. we were here for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. Modern spacious rooms with air conditioning and large bathrooms. The bed was a tad on the small and soft though.

The solar heated swimming pool was wonderful and immaculately clean. Unlimited free Wifi was a bonus, as was the wide range of Sky TV channels available.

We hadn't realised that the kitchenette in the room didn't have a sink, but were able to use the bathroom so not a biggie really.

The service from owners Kate and Hamish was exemplary. They have great local knowledge and are always willing to have a chat. We enjoyed ourselves so much that it felt like we were staying with friends.

A great value stay. I thoroughly recommend Oasis Motel to anyone and everyone.

You will be pleased to know that we are presently upgrading all our beds and do have one that would suit you perfectly next time you stay – a firm King Size bed – we will be happy to make sure you get that next time!
Thank you for mentioning the great value – that is a very high priority for us and we are so glad you found that here.
It was an absolute pleasure to host you both, and we look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Gizzy!

We stayed here over christmas 2013. They had everything you would need for a family of 5. They kids went back and forth to the office choosing playstation 2 games. Between that and the pool the kids were happy. The service here was great would definitely stay here again. So close to the beach and not far from town. Rooms were clean and tidy. They had bikes to ride and a whole lot of other outdoor activities for families.
