Stayed here about 3 years ago and despite extensive research looking for an alternative, i kept coming back to this place. The reviews were still all excellent so decided to stay here again. Large, light, clean room with everything we needed for two nights and within walking distance to many bars, restaurants and shops, we were not disappointed. Great price... More

We had the pleasure of staying two nights in room no 14 and can honestly say it was the best room we have stayed in so far in North Island. The situation re access to the town and beach are both within ten minutes walk of the motel. The room was situated on the first floor and was in excellent... More

Truly a home away from home. Location is within walking distance to shops and restaurants and the river provides an opportunity for a leisurely stroll or to sit and watch rowing. Room and facilities were very clean and comfortable and staff were very helpful and friendly. Will return again and definitely recommend this to others.

Only stayed for one night and the weather was awful but the owners were excellent. We had electric blankets in the room. The room was clean and well equipped and the wifi quick. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a restful night stay.

This place is dead easy to find when entering Gisborne from any direction. It sits neatly on the river and within easy walking distance of the city centre and all the attractions the city has to offer. The motel is scrupulously clean and the staff wonderfully friendly, even to the point of offering a room upgrade without having to ask.... More

This is a good place for a two night stay - the studio room was large, clean and well equipped. The only downside was the very poor water pressure and tepid water in the shower on the second night. The motel is close to the city centre (two blocks) and overlooks the harbour. Wifi is reliable and free (good limit... More

We have stayed in almost every type of room and all have been spacious. Breakfast is excellent. Great location..close to Ussco bar and cafe for a great meal. Enjoyed walking along... More

Stayed here 2 nights. This is a two level motel so if you can't do stairs then request lower floor. Didn't worry us though. What did concern us was; Grrr...there was no luggage rack (not even a fold out one). There was no hand towel in bathroom (I like to take this to use in the kitchen as I'm not... More

My husband and I stayed one night in September and found it to be clean, comfortable and within walking distance to the local hotel where we had dinner. The studio room was a good size, nice kitchenette, comfortable bed with a nice view of the harbour from the balcony. We were on the first floor, and I did appreciate being... More
