      The location directly across from Buffalo Beach is fantastic. The views morning, afternoon, and evening all beautiful. In the evening I could hear the waves crashing on the shore. It's also fairly close to the main street and activities (5-10 minutes) so it was easy to walk everywhere. The Whitiangea shoreline is lovely to walk. I was in town to meet family/friends. They came and went frequently and the motel owner was extremely hospitable, taking and passing on messages when family couldnt reach me. There were several of us staying at the Motel and we all thought it was clean, friendly, and good value for the money. It has a small kitchenette w all necessary amenities, TV, and WiFi, and a good working heater for those cold NZ winter nights, comfortable bed and a good shower (impt). The place was refurbished last year, so it's fresh and modern. Rooms were cleaned daily. I never noticed street noise or noise from neighboring tenants. Both upstairs and downstairs units have good views of the beach with balconey's or porches for sitting outside and enjoying the sun and view. I highly recommend the Motel, and also want to give a shout out to the owner Alan, for making the stay so easy and enjoyable.

      It is a motel, so furnishings are those of a motel ... just basics.

      I liked staying at Oceanside Motel. My husband and I both were highly impressed with the room we stayed in. It was greet to be greeted and welcomed at the reception. We were shown to over room by a very lovely lady. The condition of the room we stayed in was clean and presentable to a very high standard. We loved the views from our room. Having a lovely kitchen space, balcony, bathroom, set up of the room was awesome. Having our room serviced everyday was great. We would like to say a huge thank you.

      We enjoyed our stay very much. The owners were nice, friendly and were interested in you having a good time while staying at Whitianga. They told us all the good places to go to and to dine at. We recommend the Mercury Bay Winery for a good meal the view and lots of lovely wine to taste. The motel was comfortable clean and just across the road from Buffalo Beach - awesome spot, and 5 minutes from town centre.

      There was nothing to dislike.

      The owners were really lovely and friendly and full of information about activities etc. The rooms the have been refurbished in really good quality - spacious and spotless and the view from the private balcony was amazing. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

      Only problem on the first day was the hot water ran out before the huge spa bath was full and the bathroom had no expel air only a window so tended to stay full of condensation for hours after use of spa bath.

      Immaculate presentation - very clean and tidy. Two light bulbs not working unfortunately with one being over a lounge/reading chair. Owners great hosts.

      The extremely cramped toilet space!!!
