Warm welcome, clean and modern furnishings with a well stocked little kitchenette. Firm bed, crisp sheets and soft pillows, fluffy towels and boutique toiletries are not normally something I would associate with a motor lodge so lots of bonus points here. It’s a long walk to shops or restaurants but it is quiet and taxis are easy to get if...

We had a lovely unit at this motel which was very very clean and fresh. Décor was lovely but one of the best things was that we had a unit tucked around behind the main building so there was very little or in fact no road noise. Just outside our door there was a very cute pergola with a nice...

I stayed here for 7 nights for work purposes. Hosts, Mick & Cath, made for a great stay. Their service was excellent. The daily newspaper and free bottled water in the fridge were a nice touch. I would recommend this motel for a care free stay if in need of accommodation in Gisborne.
