Nice experience in the hotel...God send !”
It was a wonderful stay and amazing experience at the ONS Motel and Guest House. Our trip would have been ruined if we were not helped by the wonderful family of Mr Nizam (The owner). We are couples celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary in Mauritius and my wife suffered an injury after arrival in Mauritius. Mr Nizam went out of his way and took personal care of both of us so that we could enjoy Mauritius and get the injury healed at the same time. It was God sent !! The hotel was great and if you need any personal attention and a feel of home then it is the place to be.
Great value, friendly host!”
Does what it says on the tin - a basic but perfectly adequate guest house, which is great if you want to do Mauritius on a budget and if you want to take in some of the Mauritian culture in Mahebourg. Wifi is a bit intermittent, but works well enough for checking emails etc. Air con in room works well. Ibrahim is a fantastic host - very friendly and helpful with advice and information. Hired a car from them - good value but rather beaten up! Again serves the purpose and the air-con works which is the main thing!
Shifu Wong - Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia.”
We were staying in ONS Motel & Guest House for one night because it is very near to the RRS International airport.To save our time to travel around in Mahebourg, on arrival in the noon time, we gained to travel the beautiful Blue Lagoon,Waterfront & Lion Mountain etc.Therefore we stayed in ONS Motel, it's very convenience location along the main street where we can go to the eateries and shops around.There is a Supermarket at the corner side opposite to the motel & A Good Chinese Restaurant namely-"Dragon De Chine" run by A Hakka China Man by the name:George.ONS Motel no doubts room are small but are well maintained & clean.The boss-Ibarahim is a young man of age 28, he is a very enthusiastic man with good hospitality, especially morning breakfast he serves by himself.ONS Motel is A 3 Stars Hotel but with 4 Stars Service, I was very satisfied staying there and I will definitely introduce to my family members & friends who are going to stay in Mahebourg, Mauritius Island in Africa.
Exactly what we wanted”
We had a 03:50 flight on Kenya Airways out of Mauritius, but did not want a long taxi drive at night to take us from Belle Mare to the airport, so we elected to look for a cheap and cheerful place where we'd miss breakfast, get half a night's sleep (well nearly) and it'd be a short ride to the airport. Wow, did we strike lucky!!! Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, hot shower, and a super-friendly host in Ibrahom. At a brilliant price. But how to find it? Please be aware few Mauritians we met know what street they are standing on and so finding Royal Road was almost impossible. Please, please, unlike us, use Google Maps, and put a photo on your phone. If ONS Motel is not showing, it's on Royal Road, 3 storeys up, between Rue des Flamands and Rue des Cents Gaulette. The entrance is through an iron gate/set of doors, with a sign beautifully illuminated at at night, but hard to see from a taxi during the day. This is excellent budget accommodation.
A great stay on my stop over in Mahebourg”
It was my first time I choose to book a guest house for our holidays. On our arrival we were surprised by the quality of the room, the kindness. So we decid to stay the whole stay. The ONS is 10 min from the Airport in The center of Mahebourg and 7min from Blue bay beach. The waterfront is very close to the hotel you can walk around 3 min. Well I really appreciate it and I recommend his guesthouse for every one.
Awesome Stay...Keep it up!!!”
ONS (One Nizam Square) is a lovely place very close public facilities like shops, restaurants and the local market; all within 2 to 5 minutes walking distance. It's also close to the lovely Mahebourg Water Front which is a Tourist site. The Motel is neat with lovely and helpful staff. Ibrahim especially was very kind and resourceful; he gave me tips about the town. I loved the breakfast too. The Internet was very reliable and fast. I really had value for money and will definitely come back.
Value for money - Recommended”
If you really want to explore Mauritius and also in budget, only way is to save in accommodation. This place is near by many shops and ATMs and most important Mahebourg bus station. Ibrahim(caretaker/owner of the property) is really a nice person as well as Bilal also. We like their hospitality. If in future we'll go Mauritius we'll definitely choose this place to stay. NOTE: Only if you think to stay in budget place. If money is no bar their are so many other places also. Hope this review will be helpful for all.
Good value low cost hotel.”
ONS HOTEL Good value low cost hotel. If you are looking for a low cost hotel near the airport I recoment this family run hotel. It is in the centre of Mahebourg and on the third floor of a modern building. The hotel is not very easy to find because they have only one sign about one metre by two metres which is too busy. Also they have chosen to write "ONS" in a strange medieval type face which is almost imposible to read. The entrance is by an Orange metal gate, which is also the entrance for the gym on the second floor on the same building. The gym facilites are available to guests of the hotel. If you have trouble finding the entrance, look for the police station which is easy to find, and is two blocks up from the hootel. The rooms are reasonably sized with modern furniture. The shower room a partion of the room. Be aware that the hot water is grace of a solar system, on cloudy days don't expect hot water! The beds are hard "orthopedic!". However, unlike most low cost hotels, the towels are large and very adequate. Soap bars are provided. There is a room safe. Breakfast is minimal, bread and jam plus bottle juice and tea or coffee. Wifi is only available in a small zone next to the public computer, but it is free. There is no reception as such but the public spaces are monitored ad you will normally find someone comes to you if you need something. The hotel can arrange airport transfers and carhire. Mahebourg itself is an interesting town with a waterfront and several restaurants. There is also a market most days with an expanded one on mondays.
A night transit in Mauritius”
We had a transit to Mauritius and took a night stay at this motel. From the airport to the motel, it was about 10-15 minutes drive and it cost 600 rupees to get there. Upon reaching the motel, we had to press the doorbell to get in as it was already dark by then. We were greeted by a nice lady who is the owner of the motel and her young girl. Got in our room and rested for the night. Most shops around are closed so theres no where for us to go. Weather is cool at night. Breakfast is nice even though it's little but its sufficient. We also managed to make arrangement with the owner to send us off to the airport early in the morning.
Great value for money”
We stayed in the ons motel for 2 nights and were very happy with our choice. The neighbourhood is not crowded with tourists which we loved. Our pick up service from the airport went perfectly fine (25€ for both ways. Way cheaper than taxi or other hotels!) Our dear host Ibrahim recommended a nice restaurant with local food (try the sizzle squid!!!) and organised a trip to the islands the next day, again for very fair prices. The room was clean and simple but had everything you would need, including a safe. Breakfast is very simple (baguette with ham, tea and some fruit) but ok. The bus to the beach takes 20 minutes (bluebay). There is no beach close to the motel! The staff is very friendly and helpful. You feel rather couchsurfing than staying in a hotel We definitivly enjoyed our stay,
Cute guesthouse in great location”
The guesthouse is located in the heart of Mahebourg. The owner is very nice and makes an effort to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Clean and quite rooms, clean showers. Nice balcony with few on the busy Mahebourg streets. The breakfast could be a bit bigger (you get baguette, butter & jelly and a bowl of one fruit) but other than that great place!
Ibrahim organized us a pick-up from another hotel. The taxi driver was on time, had a nice and clean car and was very friendly. The price was fair as well. The check-in at the motel was fast and very friendly and everyone helped us immediately with the luggage. The room was clean and we had a nice stay with our 7 moths old baby girl. The airport shuttle on the next morning also worked out great and we were extremely satisfied about the amazing service.
Glad to have booked this motel”
Ibrahim is friendly and helpful. The motel is quiet at night eventhough it is on the main street. Walking distance to bus stop, waterfront, Mahebourg wet market as well as Monday Flea market. Walking distance to Capitaine Restaurant which sells reasonably priced food. Motel guests can use the gym/fitness centre too. Supermarket is across the road, but if you want to look for more variety, walk further to Kong Supermarket. Museum is about 20 min walk.
We are "oldies" that needed to overnight in Mauritius between flights. Our incoming flight was 1 hour and 15 mins late, but as they knew the flight number we were arriving on - they fetched us in a nice clean spacious car, right on time ---- at 8pm. They have a lift (elevator) which saved us walking up 2 flights of stairs. The room was lovely and clean and airy. Comfy beds, extra pillows and blankets in the cupboard. Next morning they took us back to the airport at 7am for our flight out again. Lovely people, excellent service, what more does one want!!!!!!
Excellent value at a central location!”
Absolutely no complaints! The staff was most friendly and helpful from the very start when they met us arriving in our rental car and helped us find a parking space and get our luggage inside. It could have been a challenging arrival otherwise as ONS Motel is right in the busiest part of the city and the reception is on the third floor, plus we arrived during rush hour. The neat rooms had everything we needed and there was a nice common space and a terrace with a view for breakfast and hanging out in general. Central market, waterfront, bus terminal and national museum all very near. I only wish we'd had more time to get to try out their complimentary well-equipped gym :-)
Home away from home”
I was overwhelmed with the personal care and attention I got from Mr Nizam (the hotel owner) and his whole family. It was a cozy hotel with a nice scenery and I loved every bit of it. The food was great and it was cooked as per our wish. I would always recommend this hotel to everyone who visits Mauritius.
Everything and more”
Ibrahim and the other staff at ONS are so friendly and helpful. They went out of the way to make my stay the most comfortable and welcoming stay possible. Ibrahim also recommended a great little local eatery where I had a very tasty shrimp curry, and he organised transport to the airport on 1 minute notice. I really felt I was staying by an old friend rather than a motel. Thanks so much!
Near to the airport ”
Located in Mahebourg which is only 10 minutes by bus from the airport (24 rupees). Easy to find from the bus station. Just behind there is a mosque, so there'll be an early "morning alarm". Blue bay beach is only a short bus ride or an interesting walk away.
Great value and service ”
We stayed there for 2 nights and Ibrahim was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located in downtown of Mahebourg, not too far from the airport. We had to park our rental car on the side street. It was easy to get a spot especially after 5pm as everything closed after that!
Quite place in city center. ”
Everything was fine, good value for money. Guest House is located near the bus terminal and near the embankment and also is supermarket, KFC and some local cafes.
