    Stayed 2 nights here. Very comfortable, close to restaurants, easy walk to riverside walkway and Waikanae Beach. Close to marina. Easy access from main road. Spacious unit with separate bedroom. Good facilities in unit. Guest laundry on site.

    Definitely the nicest accommodation I've had in a long while. Room was generously proportioned, as was the bathroom, and was spotlessly clean. Owners were very nice and helpful. Great location, too with restaurants within walking distance.

    Stayed one night on our way round NZ. Easy parking and a good sized clean room overlooking the harbour. Well placed for restaurants and shops, would use again if in Gisborne. What else do you need in a motel?

    We recently spent a couple of nights at the Senator Motor Inn and really enjoyed our stay. The lady in reception was helpful and very friendly and the unit we were in was very clean with everything that we needed. Would stay again.

    They allowed us to check in 5 hours early which was great. Service was exceptional and room was always cleaned each day and perfectly located to restaurants and bars in walking distance. Highly recommend
