A nice place to stay with a large sitting area and 2 separate rooms. We had a room down the back, so it was also very quiet. Nice pool and friendly staff. A short drive into the main town. Plenty of suitcase and clothing storage also if you are staying for awhile.

I stayed here for four days with my family. Very good quality unit, quiet and well furnished. The pool and amenities were good. The owner mildly put us off by greeting us and asking if we had thought about our carbon footprint, but everything from then on was spot on. I agree that it could do with air conditioning though , the 20 degree nights were a bit much to take.

Although this city is the gate way to the East Coast it is a must as a stop ove and no better place to stay is Teal Motor Lodge. Not only are the rooms great but terific area for the kids to play and give you a rest. I will be back.

Great comfortable unit, awesome location, so close to town & supermarket to self cater for meals etc. Units are well fitted out. Pool looking lovely but I wasn't brave enough, even tho it got to 24c in Gizzy in October! Prompt breakfast service & well catered. Great price too! Thanks again :)

Very cold unit with a heater that was totally inadequate for the size of the unit, very high ceilings and window with no curtain coverage. Had to sleep with electric blanket on all night and the blankets from the spare bed on me as well. As the units are very old, but they have been modernised in the furnishings,they obviously don't have adequate insulation in walls, ceilings etc. this place would be best to invest in heat pumps. Great shower pressure but the shower hose is faulty and sprays everywhere. It is a reasonable place but very dated style of units.

The 2 bedroom unit was at the back of the complex away from the main street traffic noise.
Walking distance from a supermarket it was fully kitted out to make your own meals. Beds were queen and a single in one room, two singles in another with a pull out sofa in the living area, perfect for our party of five. The whole unit was spotless ,separate toilet with a shower bath combo that had great water pressure and plentiful hot water for all.
We had easy access to all the shops that were perhaps a further 20 min stroll away. There was a pool plus BBQ facilities available but the weather was not kind enough to avail ourselves of this.
Only downside was the furniture i.e. seating needed to be updated as you required help to get out of the couch and the TV set top was playing up.

Stayed for 8 nights in a 2 bedroom unit at the very back of the complex. Lots of space, very quiet.Unit was well design and nicely moderninsed and refurbished with plenty of power points, good heating and a free paper each morning including Sunday. Would definitely stay again

Room Tip: The further back from the road the quieter it will be, but road noise is not a big deal in Gisborne...
