We have been touring both the north and South Island and were fortunate enough to stay at the Oasis motel booked by the very good information centre in Gisborne. Bruce and Jenny, owners of the motel are excellent hosts. The motel is clean and rooms very well presented/maintained

Thank you Colin and Heather for your glowing review, we really appreciate the great feedbacks we get from our guests from all over the world. Its the same old story, if we are treated with respect, we respect back and you guys were fantastic and we certainly don't mind helping anyone out, if needed and if possible. Bruce & I are so lucky to have the girls we have who help out with all the cleaning. They do a fantastic job - nothing is too much for them, which is so appreciated. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your journey in NZ, didn't get too wet on the bike and had a safe trip to your homeland. We hope to see you again some time in the future, but in the meantime, Take Care and travel safely. Cheers

Bruce & Jenny are amazing hosts and went out of their way to do what they could for my family at a very traumatic time after loosing my precious Nana. We arrived at Oasis grief stricken and sleep deprived after a massive 48 hour long journey from Perth where everything had gone w

Thank you so much for your beautiful review Voyage25851448833, It is really appreciated. What we done for you guys is what we would do for anyone at such a sad and devastating time. Unfortunately we couldn't help you out with the missing luggage though. We hope your journey home was a little bit more successful. Again, I must commend our Cleaners - they do a wonderful job for us and keep our rooms to the standard that we expect. We are so lucky to have the girls we do have. What we do for guests in the same situation as you found yourselves is of no problem to us as we know you would have had a lot on your mind and if we can do those little jobs like the washing etc we are happy to do so. The bikes and scooters are a great hit with the kids and it gives Mums,Dads and Grandparents a bit of peace time to organise what the need to. We hope that you have settled back at home safely and like we said, we would love to see you all again - hopefully on a happier occasion. Take Care, Travel Safely and Thank you again so much.

Motel is located about 5 minutes drive out of Gisborne so you will need a rental car. Nice modern room décor and good sized comfortable units. Motel is on the main road north so can be quite noisy but it does quieten down at night. Walkway outside the motel is good for a walk to

Thank you Ambrose for your very warm and kind review. It was certainly our pleasure having your beautiful family stay with us to enjoy the comfort and being able to relax. With the warmer weather beginning, the scooters and bikes are getting well utilized and for those who choose to chillax with a movie or two, I think we have a pretty good selection. To go that "extra mile" for our guests is no problem,as we would like our guests to be happy. We look forward to your return and hope that your journey home was a safe trip. There is always a minority that want to spoil the reputation of a motel, but one only has to look at other reviews to see that that particular guest had a personal issue with themselves and are born to be nasty. Unfortunately for us it can affect our ratings which is so unfair, but we know in our hearts and minds that we do the best job we can to have everyone happy. Many Thanks again, Take Care & ENJOY :) Bruce & Jenny

"All rooms have pretty much the same outlook"
"Get a king bed room, as those are apparently the updated ones."
"Our room was closest to the road. Rooms off the office would have less noise."
"ask for a Wet floor shower if you have disability issues"
"As far from road as possible"
