Clean, tidy room, nice small pool, laundry facilities. One night rather spoiled by noisy, swearing guys outside, but NOT motel's fault! Pleasant reception, all round nice. Quite a long way from Gisborne CBD, so easier to drive.

Great stay! The room was extremely clean and tidy, the bed was very comfortable, nice new t.v. with all the channels you need, and enough free internet at your finger tips. The highlight of the rooms were the large showers with awesome water pressure!! The grounds were beautifully maintained and pool/bqq area was very inviting, the friendly staff gave us... More

Right on the edge of town but closer to wineries in the area. It looks like a regular motel but very clean and spacious. No AC just like every other hotel in New Zealand. Metered free internet, just like every other hotel. Room #1 is the best room on the property. You will get a big lawn area that you... More

Stayed there for three nights over the long weekend. Very clean and tidy, pool area is lovely. bed not the best, too soft and we tended to roll into the middle. No air con, just a stand up fan which was a bit noisy in the middle of the night. Lovely hosts though, very helpful.

This motel has been the best motel we have stayed in. It was clean, refreshing and our host was the bomb. I hope his name was Dave. You deserve to be in the hospitality field. You are so warm, friendly and very receiving of people regardless of race. Bless you and your family.

We found all the staff very helpful and friendly and would recommend this Motor Lodge to all. The Motor Lodge is private and quiet and the rooms are well away from the road. We had a large Studio Unit for the 3 of us and found it large compared with others we had stayed at. This would be one of... More

Smallish room but everything needed is there About 5k outside main Gisborne, but on main road and easy to find. Wi-Fi is a free 200mb on a ticket with a code but I think you can ask for more if you run out. But at 99$NZ is good value

We were in town for a wedding and decided to stay an extra night. We booked online and then called to see if we could check in early. The check in time was 3pm in the afternoon. The friendly manager told us he would have the room ready within 30 mins (this was at 10:30am in the morning). We were... More

The room was quite small, though I can't really complain about that, as the room was nice and cheap. The staff were very friendly and pleasant. The problems we had were that the plates were dirty when we arrived, and one had a hair on it. It might pay to check your dishes before you eat off them. The swimming... More

We stayed for two nights in a large studio room and it was very clean, tidy and overall just a really good stay. The owners were so friendly and helpful and the early morning swims where perfect. Great location for us as we were attending a wedding on the Saturday. We will be recommending to all friends and family. Thank... More
