We traveled to the area for a wedding so just needed a reasonable bed for a couple of nights. This worked well, comfortable bed, kitchen facilities to make our own breakfast, an iron to press our wedding gear, parking at the door, friendly staff and a very friendly cat!

Great location walking distance to the beach and the shops. Great to be able to walk on tracks around the mountain and great to look around New Plymouth and what that part of the Taranaki offers. The motel unit was very comfortable and having a unit around the corner, tucked away was very private. I found the staff friendly.

Totally awesome couple who have been very supportive with our travels with our young dog Tyga. Beautiful location. Awesomely set up rooms. Beach so handy for you to let your dog run on. There is a hose by the room, which was very handy for cleaning the dog after playing on the beach. Would highly recommend them to any responsible...

We recently stayed at the Oakura Beach Motel and were impressed with the proximity to New Plymouth, the Pukeiti Gardens and the beach. However, when the bulb in the bathroom, and one other, had previously blown, the towels, bath mat etc. all extremely thin, many cobwebs evident, and only luke warm water in the shower (it was O.K. in the...

I love Oakura and this Motel is certainly nice but I've stayed at the Oakura Holiday Park several times before and, after two nights at the Oakura Motel, I moved back to be at the Holiday Park on my most recent visit. There's nothing inherently wrong with the motel - it is cute, the people are nice - but it's...

A peaceful niche (when the neighbours are not mowing lawns) with some mature trees and plants. Not too far from the beach and the township services. Not very modern, but the amenities were there and kept clean and in good order. A newspaper at the door and a range of beverages and some biscuits. Friendly and obliging service ... no...

There is a lot to like about this place. The location is excellent just half a k or so from the magnificent beach, with the small shopping centre nearby (although avoid the Oakura Fish Shop - poor quality and exorbitant pricing). It is also only 15 minutes to New Plymouth. The grounds are very nice and there is a bbq...

Comfortable motel unit, set a lovely garden setting. Unit had everything you needed, space , comfortable bed and was very clean. If you like modern , then this place will disappoint. The owner was very friendly , however the cats are really friendly and quite happy to make themselves at home in your unit. Short walk to beach . Nice...
