The room was spotlessly clean, and a bonus was the washing machine in the room which was a great help for our travels through North and South Island. The reception staff very helpful and Gisborne is a scenic place to visit

This hotel is situated on the water overlooking Gisborne's port. The apartment we had was very spacious with every amenity needed, even had a washing machine and dryer. With a view over the port, never was there a dull moment. Great stay overall.

Excellent room. Great to have on a business trip. Plenty of room to work and relax. Very comfortable and cosy. Good to be able to have a washer and drier. Close to some good restaurants especially USSCo and others! And some nice walks around the waterfront. Just had a couple of issues re room but they were sorted out very...

I travel all over NZ for work. I have stayed in many...ok places. Rarely in a really nice place, as that's part of the job. But for the price of an okay accomodation I have spent the week at the marvelous Portside Hotel in Gisborne. First of all, the location is perfect for me. I am only a 5 minute...

Very delightful and good to go for a stroll on the beach or even a run through the city. It's close from the wharf and the pick-up point for the wine tour, which is advisable if you don't have a car to get around or if you drink a little over there.

Have stayed at this hotel a number of times. This time a top floor room facing the river or port. Good bed but no easy chair to sit in. Room had a kitchen which was not needed. Fast wifi and easy parking. Short walk to Gisbornes best (in my opinion) restaurant USSCo

Had not bothered to book anything before arriving in Gisborne and was be coming concerned as other places we had looked were just this side of habitable.

We have stayed here many times and have always had a Portside room no matter what room we booked. The fact that we are good customers doesn't seem to count as this time we were given an awful car park view room which totally changed our opinion of this hotel. Coupled with the first rude receptionist we have come across...

View on level 2 of the carpark wasn't great but otherwise was a nice stay. New large bathroom, good amenities including washer/dryer, big kitchen. No proper desk area to work. Wifi worked well. Nice staff. Hotel needs to get better food options though, particularly as its a small town with limited options.
