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.

The team at Champers were so friendly and warm (felt like we had known them for years). Our room was perfectly presented and very smart with all the modern convienences you would expect to find in an upmarket... More

We stayed here for one night as a family of three adults while touring the area. The motel presented very well and we received a warm welcome at reception. We were then shown to the corner family unit (no 4?) which was very spacious and well appointed. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. The unit was also clean and... More

Everything was perfect at Champers. We had a great stay. The motel room was spotless and nicely appointed. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this motel to anyone. Our stay in Gisborne was fantastic.
