Perhaps more expensive than other motor lodges in the town - we were invited on arrival to try the others but we did not bother! - the stay was comfortable, inviting and enjoyable. The excellent fish and chip shop opposite, although a little scruffy, nevertheless produced some excellent fare; supplemented by the local supermarket. Well worth finding as we travelled... More

Best motel I've ever come across in New Zealand. I was traveling to Gisborne and had to turn back due to a slip on the road. When I arrived the owners were so welcoming and I felt safe on my own in an unfamiliar town. When entering the unit everything was spotless and clean. Great!

We had a good comfortable night stay here. The rooms were well laid out with a spa bath and seperate bedroom. The lounge dining area had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly. We were close enough to the main road and had an excellent bakery across the road. Loved Opotiki second hand shops.

This is a very good motel and probably the best in Opotiki. The units are very clean and i would suggest you ask for one of the updated units if they are available. While it is on the main road, the traffic dies down from early evening onwards so was not an issue. Directly opposite there is a Bakery Cafe... More

Eastland Pacific Motor Lodge is a typical motel in a small town, so you cannot expect all amenities of a hotel. The rooms are clean and nice in the newer building of the motel. There is no air-conditioning, but you can open windows to get a bit of breeze, if it is otherwise too warm. If you hear a loud... More

Arriving before check-in was no inconvenience for Lynn and Gary... As busy as they were Lynn was so professional and hospitable, including her lovely cleaning ladies. When I couldn't find an iron the staff showed me where it was located. They were most helpful. I received extra milk for my unit with no extra charge. Our unit had a spa... More

We stop at Opotiki every year to break the journey to the East Cape. It was lovely to arrive here after a tiring day, to find an immaculately presented place to stay. The room and facilities were sparkling clean and spotless. I was anxious that the proximity of the Lodge might make for a noisy sleep, but I was pleasantly... More

Excellent friendly hosts. Made to feel very welcome and our patronage appreciated. Accommodation absolutely spotless. We stay here whenever we go to Opotiki. Gardens are weed-free and the roses are gorgeous.

Went to Opotiki to have a look around and see what the town was like. Went with a friend. WE walked around town and this place looked what we were looking for. Opotiki is a small town that is a functional town. We walked into town for dinner and back again.

A very good choice for a short stay. Well located opposite takeaway food outlets and a small supermarket. Our stay was very comfortable. The unit was immaculately clean and beds comfortable. The small kitchen had everything we needed. Recommend a stay here if you are in Opotiki.
