The hotel is in a great location. It was extremely cleansed well set out. The manager went out of her way to assist us with the problem we had with our next town booking. She said to leave it with her and sorted out our problem of accidentally double booking the night. The motel is excellent value for money.

Nice friendly welcome. 6 of us turned up on 3 motorcycles and a car, and were warmly received. One couple got a free upgrade. Rooms are small but well presented. Not much room to move around but quite adequate.

Have stayed here several times for business trips. Close to the township, though a bit of a walk. Older style motel rooms, but have been renovated and repainted to a clean, tidy and presentable room. New owners are extremely helpful in accommodating your every need. Free wifi / data is handy. Relatively quiet for a comfortable night's sleep.

We chose to stay here on business as it was very affordable, but were pleasantly surprised when we found lovely modern, clean and comfortable rooms. The free WIFI was a big bonus, but what was even better was the terrific communication before and after our stay. They were incredibly flexible which made my job that much easier. Would love to...

Stayed for a night with my partner. During the particular weekend it was very stormy and cold. Was happy to find the heat pump and electric blankets had been turned on before we entered the room. On paying the next morning found that we were given a discount also. Not sure if this was due to power outages during the...

We stayed at this motel as it had favourable reviews and it was centrally placed to our visit of close friends in Gisborne.
