We stayed in a one bedroom apartment here for four nights in August 2012. The location suited us perfectly for the Gisborne Rally!! It is also extremely well located for other reasons. It is close to the main shopping area, restaurants, the harbor, and a supermarket is within a few minutes drive. The room we had looked out over the river / harbor. We were able to walk to dinner every night at the range of restaurants nearby, including a bar / bistro right next door! Also handy were the Fishing Club, Lonestar, and The Wharf restaurants.
The rooms were large, clean, and easily kept warm by the heat pump installed. A large bathroom also was a plus, with good water pressure and clean towels supplied every day. There is a microwave, jug, toaster in the kitchen - perfect for breakfast.
However, the most outstanding thing about this hotel was Olive. What a helpful, friendly, lovely lady she is!! Nothing was a problem, she was able to give local advice and always had a smile. She took an interest in our team and what we were in Gisborne for, asking us about our progress and being genuinely interested.
I can recommend this place to others without hesitation.
