It's hot in a humid in this part of NZ especially at this time of the year. The rooms we had were far too tiny for 2 adults and kids per room. Plus there was no air conditioning. This is a major problem. Wifi was also problematic. The motel boast free wifi but they used a cheap provider (Zenbu) that...

I stayed in Room 9 , it was very clean and pleasant, The office staff where really nice and accommodating, would stay there again. Swimming pool was really clean. Slightly further from the town but that is a good thing if you don't want the traffic noise.

Room was very clean and tidy and the owners are really nice and helpful, good people. Pool was clean and the location is handy. The location is handy to town but not really for walking so make sure you have a car, it is a motor inn after all.

Spacious and comfortable with great bathroom area! The best thing about this place is the staff- from the owners to the cleaning staff, everyone was lovely, friendly and helpful! Wifi really needs sorting out - zenbu is not good enough. Weak connection that disconnects as soon as your phone locks, and you have to re-enter the password every time (can't...

Two room options, compact studio with huge bathroom for an in out stay or a larger studio lounge with large kitchen and bathroom. Amazed at how quiet and private this location was - on the main road into town but far enough out to miss all the city noise. Great host!

Motel is really nice and clean. Price is reasonable. Microwave oven in the room and cutlery in the room. Bathroom is quite big and clean. Also have hair dryer. Room itself is quite small. It's only a night for us so it's okay. Located close to town.

Had a very nice welcome and were well looked after throughout our stay. Our unit had a TV in the lounge area and the bedroom as well as a whirlpool bathtub and separate shower in the bathroom. Nice toiletries and towels. Very well kitted out unit. Good location - although suggest a drive (10 minutes) into Gisborne proper rather than...
