The room was well equipped and, more important, there were good BBQ facilities next to the pool. Our host had a good answer to every question and provided whatever we need with exemplary speed. Well positioned for both entering and leaving Gisborne.

We visited Gisborne for a Friday and Saturday night in November. Our hosts were very cheerful and helpful. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Even though near a main road we were not disturbed by traffic noise. Being on the main road is was easiy to find. We would definitely be back again.

We used the motel for an overnight stop. The proprietor gave us a great welcome and told us about the best places to visit in the town. Our room was well appointed with everything we needed. Overall a great stay at a great price.

We elected to go to the supermarket and buy some food for dinner rather than eat our. The room had al the utensils we required and microwave to heat the food if... More

Our host Dave gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived in the evening after a day on the road. He gave us a map and highlighted some recommended spots which was great as it was our first visit to Gisborne. The studio room was really good value at $99 and very comfortable and modern. Everything was clean and... More

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.

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.
