I'm leaving a review despite never having stayed at ONS. I'm leaving it because I was so impressed with the way the team handled my situation at extremely short notice and wer flexible enough to accommodate me when my plans changed again at even later notice. Thank you and keep up the good work!

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 jam, 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,

Was looking for convenient location out of season in Mahebourg whilst on budget but requiring reliable internet and some additional services like airport pick-up / taxi service etc. Hotel is ideally located on major thoroughfare but didn't find noise too intrusive and more than compensated by excellent location close to all amenities like shops ,weekly market (a must see!) , bus station etc. Communication with owner Ibrahim excellent both before and during stay. Nothing too much trouble and can highly recommend optional evening meal which was really good value. Would definitely recommend and stay at in future if you are looking for budget friendly lodgings and realistic with expectations commensurate with price. Thanks Ibrahim!

We drove past twice before noticing the sign. The guest house is on the 3rd floor, accessed though a closed pair of gates. The lift had an out of service sign but apparently that's to discourage the 2nd floor gym patrons. There's no parking - we had to park in a nearby side street. After such a discouraging arrival, we were a bit worried but things then got better. The room was generous and everything worked, although the fittings were basic but that's to be expected at this price. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The ONS is in the main street of Mahebourg, close to the Waterfront, where there are several good looking restaurant (we went to the Dragon de Chine). Breakfast was simple but adequate.

Hello,

Thanks for your review.
We would like to thanks you for staying with us and was nice to meet you there.
For the parking unfortunately we don't have on site that's in written on the website but you can park on the alley next to the hotel that is 100% safe where we park all our rental car. As we are situated on the heart of Mahebourg and the police station is just 1 min walking distance from our place. Generally is very easy to find us as we are on the main street of the town but maybe for you as was in the night you have not paid attention.
We will definitely put a more large sign board in the future so that will be more easy for future guest to find us.
Feel free to contact us for your next trip in Mahebourg, we will do our best to receive you again at ONS Motel & Guest House.

Cheers & all the best.

Regards

The ONS Motel in Mahebourg, Mauritius is a great place to stay, especially if you are looking for budget-friendly lodging outside of the major touristy spots.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast included delicious fresh fruit and a crusty baguette with accompaniments. A pleasant surprise was the Fitness Centre on the floor below the motel; guests were allowed to use the gym for free.

Ibrahim, the manager of ONS Motel, is a friendly, helpful, flexible, and kind young man. He was available at all hours, if needed, and worked hard to take care of his guests. As I only had vague ideas of what I wanted to see, Ibrahim gave me great suggestions on what to see and how to get there. I did two day tours with him in different areas of the island and he was very open and patient with my 10,000 questions about all things Mauritian. The motel also offers airport transfers, which always makes things easier. As a female traveling solo, I also appreciated the very safe accommodations and town.

I highly recommend the ONS Motel to all travelers. Ibrahim was the best!
