Motel is just across the road from the beach and the hosts were very friendly and helpful as were the staff. Rooms very comfortable. Got a takeaway from the Thai place just down the road and it was good.

Fabulous motel - not the most modern but clean, comfortable, and roomy. Fantastic location on dead end street and over the road from The best beach in the world! And the Ocean View is genuinely pet friendly. We discovered some other places were “pet friendly” providing your pet stayed locked in your car or the motel owner’s garage, but at Ocean View our wee pooch was welcome inside the unit. Our first ever visit to Ohope - but we’ll be back!

We only stayed here one night in the 'Studio Unit' but were made so welcome by the warm & friendly owner. The unit had orange juice in the fridge + biscuits & chocolate !!!! Yum .... The owner recommended places to go just down the road for dinner & for breakfast the next morning which was so handy for someone from out of town. This unit was immaculate & everything spotlessly clean with a view to die for. Highly recommend this place.

My wife and I stayed here two nights and really enjoyed the property. We had a studio unit that looked across the street directly at the ocean. The unit was spotlessly clean and had several kitchen appliances that would be handy if we had stayed longer. The owner was very amiable and the pricing was very reasonable (about $75 US a night). The location couldn't have been better, very easy walk to several decent restaurants. Very nice beach walks. Just a wonderful stay. Would highly recommend.
