Quite a nice motel with spacious, clean and comfortable room. It was located in a nice central spot and was well priced. The reception staff was great ... very helpful and friendly. Plenty of off street parking. Recommended.

Great place to stay. Very well kept rooms and the beds were very comfortable as I find it hard to sleep in nearly all motels I've visited. No Microwave or oven, but we didn't need them as we were only in town for a night. Very comfortable accommodation and thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a cosy place to... More

We liked the space. good sized unit. Clean. we stayed in the middle of winter so appreciated the heat pump (which will double as an airconditioner during the summer). Parking was easy and our downstairs unit was quiet. Everything was as it should be..

Friendly service, good kitchen outfit (albeit no oven or convection microwave), decent bathroom/shower (w/ grab rails and walk-in shower/ shower seat :-), comfy beds. Slightly dated, but clean and functional. Good complimentary WiFi. No int'l TV channels. Good size desk in 2-BR suites.

We would stay again. Hostess friendly and helpful.The unit we got was spacious enough. Colours would have been up beat when it was built but probably a dated look today. No designated parking for units. Pedestal basin in bathroom so only a little tiled shelf for your toiletries.

Just stayed with family in a family unit and was not a patch on the unit we stayed in earlier in the year. The one bedroom suite is amazing value for money but the 2 bedroom unit was very disappointing and not such great value. Very small compared to the suite. The kitchenette was very minimal for a family unit.... More

Loved the motel. Clean, spacious, comfortable bed and great location for eateries and walks around the waterfront and around to the beaches. Would love to stay here again. Everything within walking distance.

We love staying here as a family, spacious rooms with free wifi (which my son & hubby love). A popular place where you must book in in advance to ensure a room. Great staff who are very friendly and professional. Close to the heart of Gisborne and eateries. Ideal for all walks of life.
