We were looking for a quiet overnighter prior to flying out from Melbourne and the Gisborne Motel provided just that. It is situated in a quiet location, has very neat grounds and the rooms are presentable and practical and very well serviced. If you are moderately fit then the Gisborne village is about a kilometre away and is a very... More

I don't understand why people give such a hotel bad feed back, it's clearly built in the70s and inside has had some renovations but it will never be a five star. I found the lady at the front to be very accomodating, the bed was fine the tv and fridge worked and the shower was hot with amazing pressure. Make... More

We booked this Motel as it was the only place available. Reception/ Manager was friendly. Our room was very small, barthroom was also small with no shelving, shower was ok with good water pressure. Towels were very thin. Floor was quite soft, with door rattling when moving around room. Bed was not that comfortable. No cooked breakfast available. Motel is... More

We stayed at the Gisborne Motel this weekend for a family wedding. Accomodation was clean,warm, price reasonable and room had everything else we needed. Close to Gisborne central and easy to find from the freeway.

This motel is cheap but too far out of town and in serious need of updating!! The man at the front desk was friendly but that's where the positives stop!! It has not been updated since the 70's and not in a good way!! Only stay here if you can't find somewhere else.

We needed a bed after a late return from O/S. Booked this before we went and it was clean, bed was good, heater was on (that was good) and very welcoming. Just what we needed instead of driving home and going to sleep on the road.

Well equipped room, had everything that we needed and much more than we expected. It was a raining when we reached Gisborne, so it was nice to have a DVD player in the room and a choice of movies to borrow from the reception, at no extra charge. The WiFI was amazing. The heating was more than adequate, the electric... More

We paid for a family room. Overpriced Dirty Rundown Coldest place I've ever stayed, despite running the AC flat out for 10 hours!!!! Noisy from other motorists coming and going. Ran out of hot water whilst showering in winter. Despite the friendly owner, I could never recommend this place to others, it surprised me to know it was fully booked!!

The room was small, but served our needs of an overnight stay. It was clean and had the amenities for us. The bed was clean and comfortable. The shower was easy to adjust. The bath towels a little the worse for wear.
