We stayed here only one night, but would definitely stay again if we return to Gisborne. Reception and check-in were friendly and efficient, with useful tips on what to see and where to dine. The accommodation was comfortable. And the motel is handy walking distance to town, beach, and the port area which has a range of restaurants and bars.

Stayed here for only the night. The check in process was straight forward and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The accommodation was excellent, very stylish decor and furniture, comfortable beds, everything in the kitchen you need to make a meal, with the added bonus of great views. The entire apartment was spotlessly clean. Can highly recommend staying here.

Very good motel close to city's center and with wonderful harbor views. Highly recommended. Our room on the first floor had an extensive deck with chairs and table where we could relax and enjoy the crispy cold NZ savingnon blanc. There was no cooking oven/microwave in the room. The bed was very comfortable.

We came to Gisborne for a wedding and had the pleasure of staying here! It was amazing so clean and all amenities catered to our needs. We had an upstairs room which looked out to the harbour absolutely stunning! I stayed here with my sister and cousin it was definitly enough space for us. Our room was cleaned so quickly...

One night here on a driving tour of NZ. Immaculate large room with seating area, kitchenette and little balcony. And air con! Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast can be ordered and is brought to your room - great option if you need to get off the next day. Great value for money.

Got to start with the 'meet and greet' which was great. Friendly and informative. Very tidy/spacious/nice room. Great to have an aircon (needed in Gisborne) which was efficient - and quiet!! Very handy to 'downtown' and one of my favourite restaurants (USSCo).

Stayed for a long weekend in ground floor 2 bedroom unit. Spacious, clean and everything you need. Perfect to share with the family but still have plenty of space. Great location on the inner harbour too. Definitely recommend!

The good feature of the motel is the helpful front desk staff. Oh and another bonus was an excellent heat pump. The stand out for me was its close proximity to my favourite restaurant, USSCo. My company booked the accommodation but it would not be my choice to stay here again.

This motel is clean, with all facilities necessary to enjoy my stay in Gisborne. My room had a fully equipped kitchen, with a more than adequate array of cooking utensils, etc. There was a washing machine and dryer. Wifi was provided. Although there is not an restaurant within the complex there are plenty close by. The staff were very attentive...
