Stopped over here for one night in Gisborne. Couldn't have picked a better place - there were others a bit further central, but nothing as good as this one and for the price. Had a lovely apartment style unit the spa bath, cleanliness and room comfort were top notch.The location is on the edge of town but even those closer...

Two room options, compact studio with huge bathroom for an in out stay or a larger studio lounge with large kitchen and bathroom. Amazed at how quiet and private this location was - on the main road into town but far enough out to miss all the city noise. Great host!

Motel is really nice and clean. Price is reasonable. Microwave oven in the room and cutlery in the room. Bathroom is quite big and clean. Also have hair dryer. Room itself is quite small. It's only a night for us so it's okay. Located close to town.

Clean, warm and well presented. Very spacious, two TV's. Friendly welcome and service. Knowledgeable and gave us clear ideas for things to do and places to eat such as watching sunrise. Get the room with a wonderful spa bath. Would come back again.

We stayed here over Easter, and were very pleasantly greeted. The people who run the place are so nice, cheerful and helpful. Room was nice, everything we needed really. I even jumped in the pool briefly! Location is pretty good, but a short drive from the city centre.

We were a group of 42 adults and 4 children and the rooms and hospitality from David were brilliant! We need to come back again next again and if they have the room for us - we will most definitely be staying again! Highly recommend.

On the edge of town, this motor lodge provides easy access to the shopping centre. We enjoyed a King Spa One Bedroom unit on ground level which was very spacious, with parking at the door. Our host Debbie was happy, welcoming and gave a great recommendation for dinner at the renovated hotel in town. A great place to stay.

The room was well equipped and, more important, there were good BBQ facilities next to the pool. Our host had a good answer to every question and provided whatever we need with exemplary speed. Well positioned for both entering and leaving Gisborne.
