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

Great location for us as we were attending a wedding on the Saturday. We will be recommending to all friends and family. Thank... More

We stayed for 4 nights with 5 people and had 2 units with an internal door between the two. The owners are very friendly, easy going and nothing was too much trouble. The units are very comfortable and clean, along with being fully self contained which helps when travelling with kids. It certainly made this part of our holiday pleasant... More

Stayed one night in a one bedroom unit, owner was very friendly and helpful and the room was spotlessly clean and tidy with everything catered for. Would definitely stay here again if we come back to Gisborne.

I just love this place....and the owners Deb and Dave are awesome. We have only stayed in one other hotel in Gisborne, but we love Champers. Nothing is ever a problem. The rooms are always clean and welcoming. Great location. How does it get any better than Champers Motor Lodge..?!! It doesn't...!

We stayed one night at Champers Motor Lodge and would certainly stay again when back in Gisborne. The unit was very clean and good condition. Friendly host, free wifi and just a nice decent place to stay. Great price.
