Given the choice of up market accomodation in Gisborne is farily limited to say the least.
This would easily be the pick of a fairly average bunch. Tucked away on the Portside of town you could be forgiven for getting lost trying to find the entrance, as its not very easily found. The result of having to fit a Hotel onto a smaller site...or just bad design/layout?? That aside the hotel is very tidy, rooms very modern and staff very friendly. I wouldnt call the harbourside views anything special, unless looking out over port logging operation excites you. i always find a Hotel that doesnt have its own resturaunt alittle devoid of atmosphere or character, and i suppose the Portside suffers from the exclusion of one here as well.
That said i have stayed here several times and have always had pleasent experiences.if your looking for a meal tho avoid the Breakers cafe downstairs as it is just plain bad. there is a five star resturaunt about 100mtrs down the road that wont disappoint.More
