We booked 2x2 bedroom units for a group of 9 of us and stayed 2 nights. The units were exceptionally clean and very roomy. Free paper at the door in the morning and plenty of extras. Thank you for a great stay and will definitely stay again.

I stayed here for 7 nights for work purposes. Hosts, Mick & Cath, made for a great stay. Their service was excellent. The daily newspaper and free bottled water in the fridge were a nice touch. I would recommend this motel for a care free stay if in need of accommodation in Gisborne.

Another superb Asure motel, Welcoming, very helpful hosts to spotless, roomy, well equipped rooms, with good cooking facilities, free laundry and a daily paper to top it off. Handy to City Centre, Harbour and lovely clean beaches. First time we'd been to Gisborne, stayed for three nights, and the visit made even better for having stayed at this lovely motel.

Stayed hear for 4 nights while exploring the area. The host was really friendly and helpful with maps, advice and tips. The motel unit was comfortable, and certainly very clean and tidy inside and out. We enjoy our stay here, didn't find it too noisey. Overall it was a peaceful and pleasant stay. Would stay again.

Noisy - road noise all night, basic, but clean and tidy. Not close to town centre unless you have a car. Beds good, and lots of space in 2 bedroom unit. Wifi was advertised as free but it was hopeless, couldn't connect and very slow.

Yes there is road noise in the front units, we are looking into double glazing to address this problem. Sorry you couldn't connect to wifi, haven't had this problem before with any of our guests. More

We are looking into double glazing for the street facing rooms as we do realize there is road noise. You could perhaps hear pipe noise as the hot water system is in the adjoining room. More

We stayed for three nights in February. The owners were very helpful. They placed us in a room away from road noise. The room was spacious and comfortable. There were free newspapers and laundry. Highly recommended.

Having stayed here before when it was under different ownership, was pleasantly surprised that the service and attention to detail is still excellent. The unit we stayed in was clean, tidy and well appointed, including having extra crockery and cutlery should a guest wish to entertain visitors. Any requests were seen to immediately and one small maintenance issue was fixed... More

This is a lovely place to stay - whether it's for one or more nights. The bed was very comfortable, room nice and tidy plus great water pressure. Excellent internet too - especially if you are there on business. The owners/managers were very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend!
