Ocean Beach Motor Lodge Gisborne Reviews
First sun of the day Mar 04, 2002
For a week every month for a couple of years I was staying at the Ocean Beach Motor Lodge, from where I started my work day in Gisborne city.
Situated in the beach-side suburb of Wainui (just 5 mins East of Gisborne) this is a slightly above average motel.
I chose it initially because attached to the complex is a restaurant and bar. At the end of my day I would walk across the carpark and enjoy a cool beer with dinner at the Tsunami Restaurant.
Gisborne is the first city in the world to get the sun each day so this coastal suburb must see it earlier still.
The management couldn't do enough for me. Most of their week day guests, like me, seemed to be professionals, but weekends tourists would rule.
There is a range of suits sleeping from 1-5 guests. All have modern facilities, Sky television, internet access and DVD hire.
Fully equipped kitchens and minibars are also the norm.
All rooms are smoke free. Tariff (2 persons) $125-$170 per night.
Each suite has a private courtyard where you can sit/dine outside if you wish (ask to borrow the Bar-be-que) and several of the suites have spa baths.
Being right off the highway some of the rooms suffer some road noise.
The location is still more relaxed than being in Gisborne city itself though, and of course the white sand of Wainui Beach is a mere 2 min walk away.
