“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2010

The motel unit we got was fly infested....flys were everywhere inside, and during our stay for a week i killed two cockroaches, and not only that, im not at all suprised the other review said they got robbed well we got robbed money wise, they a woman named katie who just changes the whole story of your booking, there are plenty of motels in Gisborne...try a better place then this for the same money is my suggestion!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2009

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our travels. Basic clean rooms with small kitchen. Own parking space per room. Good location for the beach (across the road) and a 10 min walk into town.

A little noisy as we had someones car alam bleeping outside our room all night. But apart from that the room its self is fine.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2008

Have just joined Trip Advisor (june 2008) and was sorry to see the review of the theft at this hotel.However when we were there in Jan 2006 the motel was good value for money and we found the new owners (aged about 30?) very welcoming.

We would have no hesitation in staying there again ,assuming it is the same owners as in Jan 2006.

Gisborne is a lovely place to chill out.

And I mean that literally. The owner knew we had a laptop, because we went to the office with it when we could not connect to WIFI. Then after we left for dinner, our room, and no one else's, was broken into and burglarized. Because we left during daylight hours, we did not realize there were no security lights, and the sliding glass door did not have security locks. Sadly to say when we returned, our room had been broken into and robbed. The thief ransacked all our luggage, and stole EVERY SINGLE piece of electronic equipment we had including: the laptop, camera, cell phone, external hard drive which had all our photos from our 3 1/2 month trip, etc. When the police called the owner, he did not care, and was not helpful in any way. PLEASE, do yourself a favor and steer clear of this flop-house.
