We chose the motel as we could take our dogs and it was close to the beach. The perfectly equipped little kitchenette was great for the four days we stayed, so much in fact we bought local produce from the Gisborne Farmers Market and enjoyed it at the motel in the evening. We loved the Wainui Store which is just a wander down the road for fish and chips and breakfast butties. The beach is on the doorstep, perfect to watch the sunrise and walk endlessly up and down enjoying the view. Our group of 4 took two rooms and had loads of space between us. The managers were very helpful. Don't be mistaken, this motel is not in the centre of Gisborne, it is a 5 min drive between noise and in a city to tranquil and next to an amazing beach!
