Fabulous 8.6 From 83 reviews

Oceanside Motel, Whitianga, New Zealand
Will definitely return!!
The hotel was right across from the ocean so had a great view, huge balcony, and the spa tub 👌. The weather was complete crap, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the hotel or the local area. The Irish pubs food was great as well....o’malleys I believe which was recommended by hotel staff. Will come back when i plan better taking weather into account lol

Beautiful location!
Fantastic location right opposite the beautiful beach. The owners were on holiday themselves and the man looking after the place was most helpful with local information and ensuring I had everything I needed. Really enjoyed my stay and would stay again.
