I can highly recommend this motel! We were left bed less for the night after our original booking was overbooked at a different motel so headed here out of pure chance! What an absolute beauty this place is. Clean, tidy and modern. Comfortable beds and a superb breakfast in the morning for only $9!
The owners were so helpful and assisted us with directions back to Rotorua afterwards.
Stay in room 10 and had parking right outside it.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with friends

Can not recommend enough. Have stayed in various motels and this is definitely been the most clean and well appointed room.
Very friendly staff. Bed super comfy with lovely linen and décor. Loved the spa bath. Was very nice to have plunger coffee as well as sachets. Will be back to stay, hopefully over summer when the outdoor area can be enjoyed:) A+++

Room Tip: Lucky enough to get back room, I'd imagine it could be a bit noisier towards the front.

Stayed for four nights. Very comfortable unit shared for a society conference that we gathered together for. Welcoming reception, we had a spacious, corner unit away from the street front. Any requests dealt with promptly without fuss. Plenty of space with double room, twin single, and two singles in lounge that did not interfere with space at all. Only negatives.... WiFi not too good in our unit, the couch needs new squabs (no stuffing left) and shelving in kitchen area could do with different placement. Can recommend and if back in Gisborne this is my first choice!

Room Tip: Corner unit next to laundry away from road noise, and very roomy.

The room I had ticks all the boxes and met my expectations as a business traveller.
Welcoming reception and offered assistance re breakfast and paper, clean tidy room, comfy bed and the fittings look as though they were updated over the last couple of years.

Location is ok, though road noise is apparent just before 6am due to being on the main road out of Gisborne.

Busy motel judging by the occupancy during my stay, though driving into town most of the Gladstone Road motels were busy.

Value proposition but if staying in Gisborne as a holiday rather than business I would choose a property off the main road.

We stayed here for one night in early Jan, in a one-bedroom unit. The adults had a queen bed in the bedroom and the three kids had twin beds and a sleep-sofa. It was comfortable and spacious enough for our family of five, including two teenagers. The owners were quite new, having recently taken it over, but the lady was very obliging and went out of her way to help us with directions for local attractions. She also kindly sent on some items of clothing we left behind.
I would definitely recommend this motel.

Excellent, I found the accommodation very clean and presentable indeed. Sky tv and a spa bath plus a power shower...excellent.

The cooked breakfast i can personally recommend which was one of the best i've had, i'm on the road alot with my job and can only wish there were more motels like this around.

Hats off to Leanne and her partner who do an outstanding job.

Thankyou for a wonderful stay and maybe see you again next year.
