#3 of 13 Speciality lodging in Gisborne
Travellers' Choice
A country motel set in the wilderness overlooking the Pacific Coast. A dedicated walkway to probably one of the most challenging land based fishing sites, where a descent King fish and Snapper can be landed. Exceptional views, tramping opportunities and a great place to take your bike out and capture a part of New Zealand's coast rarely seen by many. For those merely wanting to escape the hustle and speed of life this place offers just that - a great retreat.

Fantastic views of the Ocean from our room. Really lovely staff, took the time to show us where the cliff path was down to the rocky shore line. Not recommend if you don’t like heights or not that fit. It was fun and quite an adventure. Evening meal in the restaurant was excellent, recommend the scallops. No TV but don’t need it with fabulous views and a glass of wine, sitting outside watching the ocean was perfect.

A unique way to discover east cape. Very friendly and helpful staff; amazing sire and great view! The manager did everything she could to make our stay a special one and the young local waiter was super nice. Recommend getting up early to do sun rise at the cape…

We stayed one night at Lottin Point Motel while we were driving the Pacific Coast Highway. We arrived in the pouring rain and the atmosphere and the view was fantastic, despite the weather! Our unit (Traveller's Unit) was freshly painted and immaculately clean with a view of the ocean. It had a comfy bed and a kitchenette with a microwave and toaster, enough to prepare basic meals. We ordered dinner in the dining room and our meals were tasty and arrived beautifully presented. The owner-operator, Marija, works incredibly hard to provide good service in an isolated area. The price was right for such a beautiful location and we would happily return if we are passing through that way again.

Lottin Point Motel at the top of the East Cape, is an ideal spot to stop for some r&r. Peaceful (except for the sea, occasionally). Friendly, helpful staff. Immaculate room, with a lot of thought put into it. Had a fabulous dinner (chicken salad) & desert - great one girls. Visitor information folder. We were on the bottom floor - so cars had to be parked around the back - so that we had a view out to sea. Just a few NO's against it though - no TV, no cell phone for Spark/2degrees, hairdryer. First & last are a must guys, but phone no problem great to have the quiet. Lovely bay available to swim - need to walk/drive down to it. Buffolo's for company. All round a fabulous setup.
