Reviewed 9 August 2017

Found this place while looking outside of Gisborne, Looks amazing and shown our room after booking in. Your key is your power so just slot it in just inside the door and you have power, Our room was large and had a spa bath. Outside looked onto our deck with a table and chairs, to a paddock where wildlife was plentiful.
There was milk but it was them small cartons that nobody likes so we took a walk across the road to a dairy and got ourselves some real milk. Also stocked up on a few things. Oh and one more thing the heater in the room was very small on the wall and cut out regular.
It's close to the sea although you can't see it from the hotel, A short walk. I've left a few photos for you to look at,
Bad points for us was finding a great place thinking it was going to be quiet we were overwhelmed with the amount of road noise all night long, Trucks especially very loud.
It's a place we will defo want to come back to though due to its location but will bring ear plugs. Spa great shower was good but tended to fill the whole room up may have had a small blockage? Tea and coffee also our favourite Cookies.

Hi daiback999
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review. It was lovely to have you both stay with us. Can't do much about the trucks from Monday through Thursday as it is such a busy time for our timber industry. Great for the Gisborne economy though. Glad to hear you enjoyed the spa and the lovely private, sunny courtyard. Do come back soon, you will be so welcome.
Best regards
Ruth

Three enjoyable days. Nice to come in from a walk on the beach and enjoy the lovely hot spa. Immaculate standards at this place and the staff so obliging. Highly recommend. The drive up the coast was beautiful. Great to be back in Gisborne.

Room Tip: Being able to cook a full meal such an advantage.

Yes, the spa suites have been in hot demand over these cold winter nights. It was lovely to have you stay at Ocean Beach Wainui. Nice for you to get a break from your busy schedule. Thank you for taking the time to review us.

We had a spacious ground floor unit opening onto a private terrace and large grassy area. The sun streamed in the room in the morning, which was particularly nice in June. Huge bathroom, well equipped kitchen, excellent free wi-fi, and plenty of room overall.
The heater did a great job, the luggage rack was a good size and the bed very comfortable. Just a short drive into Gisborne for restaurants.
The beach is just minutes away, and is a great place to walk and watch the surfers.

Hi PatriciaJoy
Such an articulate review and so much appreciated. Great also that you could enjoy the 50+ Sky channels we now have. Wrapping up warmly and enjoying the walk on the beach was a great idea. Do come again and stay when the weather is warmer and you will be able to get in and have a swim.
Thank you both so much. It was a pleasure to have you stay.
Best regards
Ruth and Peter

An awe inspiring place, great service, fabulous staff, court yard an added bounds and
a great location. Some of Gisborne's best surf breaks powerful thick waves.
Really enjoyed walks along the beach and in the areas.
Will definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: Enjoy the 50+ channels, especially Soho.
