Stayed for one night. The manager/owner was exceptionally friendly and obliging in looking after luggage when I had to wait in town for a late afternoon flight. The room was very clean and well equipped though it did have a strong odour (most probably cleaning product) on arrival.

A modern motel ably managed and looking relatively new. Close to Central Business Area. Absolutely clean and modern furnishings in a relatively large room. Adequate toiletries provided. Car wash area and pool on site. Great overnight stop (or longer?)

Made a booking reasonably late in the afternoon whist travelling towards Gisborne. Due to the travel time we arrived after hours. The extent to which Olive, who was looking after the Motel went to, ensuring we would be able to gain access and get looked after was exceptional and we were very appreciative of that. The rooms were very well...

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.
