We loved our overnight stay at this hotel. The cost of the room was $120, which included an excellent continental buffet breakfast, fantastic value. The rate was a low season deal and the receptionist said the usual rate is $130, still excellent value.
The one bedroom suite was very spacious (as described by other reviewers) and well appointed. We loved the large balcony overlooking the pool area. The housekeeping was impeccable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The reception area has a folder of suggested activities and maps are available. The parking building adjoins the hotel and is accessed through a door directly into the hotel corridor. Not quite as convenient as being right outside the suite door but no problem.
Based on our experience I would highly recommend this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the heart of beautiful sunny Gisborne you'll find the very welcoming Emerald Hotel & Conference Centre. It's a hotel that offers all the benefits of boutique accommodation right in the midst of the city centre, and is the Gisborne's first fully-integrated hotel and conference facility. Spacious rooms overlook stunning vistas across the inner harbour through to the historic Kaiti Hill, to the surrounding hills, across beautiful rivers and, from the executive apartments, out to Young Nick's Head. It's the perfect place to host conferences, meetings, weddings and gatherings. As a full service hotel guests don't even need to leave the hotel for anything, although it is close to other cafes, restaurants, shops and city attractions. ... more less
