I did not like the owner he was rude and very forthright in his manner, bordering unacceptable on check in and throughout the stay, the room was alright in size although the cleanliness was not up to scratch

This is the second time we have visited this motel in recent years and it was up to expectations. Clean, spacious and quiet, we find this to be an excellent place to stay in Gisborne. It is not far from the CBD and is easily accessible from Gladstone Road. Very friendly manager and staff

We stayed here one night and found the room large and comfortable. The free wi-fi worked well. We would stay again.The motel is a short walk from town. As we only stayed the one night and have no complaints I haven't much more to add.

This is the best-quality motel I've stayed in, from the linen to the lovely modern bathroom. It's on the city's main road and is very close to the CBD (as well as two supermarkets and a petrol station), but I didn't hear any traffic noise. Most of the units surround a grass lawn with a children's playground and a washing... More

Bathroom had a terrible smell, and we think flies were coming up through drains as we had all windows closed the whole time. People were partying outside until well after 10pm, very noisy, and they even set off fireworks. We felt a bit unsafe. Glass doors and windows were dirty. Would not recommend.

I Stayed for I night, initially I thought it was dated but soon put that out of my mind the room was spacious, comfortable, a free standing cooker and a fridge. There was a pool on sight which looked really inviting. The site is close to amenities and shops. The bed was very comfortable, I would have stayed longer but... More

Spacious and pleasant enough room for the price, very clean, good linen and towels, nice pool. No aircon, but a decent fan. Handy to town. A block away is Morell's artisan bakery for excellent morning coffee and pastries. Will stay again when back in Gizzy.
