We loved our 2N stay. The staff are charming and looked after us well. Our room had a king sized bed, high quality towels and toiletries. It was a bonus to have 2 armchairs. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. We had just spent 4 days cycling in Napier so it was lovely to enjoy being by the pool... More

Stayed here for one night and it was superior to the places I had stayed before/after it. The room was clean and well equipped. The kitchen area was perfect and the little breakfast bar was great to eat at and work from. The table and chairs outside caught the sun perfectly- I could have stayed here a while! Really friendly... More

I stayed at Eastland Motor Lodge over Labour weekend. The motel is well constructed so you are not bothered by other guests in adjoining units. The staff were invariably helpful and friendly. Also our towels were changed every day - and all the rubbish taken away. This doesn't happen everywhere but we certainly appreciated this service. Thank you Eastland Motel... More

Had our first ever road trip to Gisborne and due to the fact that it was very spontaneous, we never researched a place to stay. As we were driving into Gisborne, this was the first place we noticed, with a sign saying Studio $95. As we were only going to be overnight, we thought why not. We got shown to... More

We stayed here one night with about 22 of us for an event in Gisborne. The rooms were really reasonable and very CLEAN. We all had a cooked breakfast in the morning and it was great. Bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, scrambled eggs baked beans and toast, percolated coffee for a great price. If you are booking a large group the... More

This is one of the best value for money motels we have stayed in anywhere in New Zealand. The unit we had was in excellent condition, very roomy, quiet and everything we needed was provided. It's a little further from the town centre than other places but still just a few minutes away by car.. Very impressed.

Clean units, 3 beds in separate room, double in lounge. Kitchen well-equipped, could have done with more power points though. Best thing was the salt water pool, plenty of sun lounges and umbrellas for a nice time by the pool.

We had a group of 4 family members relocating 2 of them after an extended overseas trip. After a long drive from Wellington we appreciated the quite very clean family unit located at the rear of the property with plenty of parking for an extra vehicle. The generous free wifi allowance allowed us to search for flats and household goods.... More

We had a most reasonable rate for a one bedroomed uni that allowed two friends to sleep in separate rooms. There's no noise as the units are away from the road. It is easy to find on the main road. The accommodation is clean and tidy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come and relax in the beautiful city of Gisborne and let the folk at the Eastland Motor Lodge make your stay one to remember. Gisborne’s main beaches are close by where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll, swim or surf. Waikanae Beach is known for its great surfing and you can also see Young Nicks Head from the beach. Wainui Beach is only a 5-minute drive away and is also a great beach for surfers.An easy 35 minutes’ drive will have you arriving at many lovely beaches up the East Coast or you can visit Eastwoodhill Arboretum, a similar distance away, which is known worldwide for its many beautiful trees, particularly beautiful in the autumn when the leaves change colour. Just past the Arboretum is the Rere Rock Slide, another icon of the Gisborne Region.Eastland Motor Lodge was a purpose built 8 unit motel in 1970 and was completed as a 17 unit motel with an outdoor swimming pool by the mid 70s. One of its main features is the 2 acres of majestic land than surrounds the buildings with a great mix of trees including some spectacular towering palms. ... more   less
