Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed for two nights. On the edge of Gisborne but still so easy to get anywhere and close to the airport and wineries. Room was tidy, and good to enjoy the swimming pool and spa bath in our room on the hot day.

My family and I stayed at Champers Motor Lodge in the 2 bedroom unit. Unit is modern, clean, hosts are friendly and very welcoming!! Definitely will be staying at Champers again!! Was a great place for me to catch up with my sister, her hubby and 2 kids and also enough room for our kids to have a catch up too. I will be staying here a lot more regularly and encourage you to try this place out even for a night!

We stayed one night at Champers Motor Lodge and would certainly stay again when back in Gisborne. The unit was very clean and good condition. Friendly host, free wifi and just a nice decent place to stay. Great price.

I arrived on the 2nd last day of my trip to NZ from the UK specifically for the purpose of visiting my recently deceased father's grave. I had made a mistake with the booking. The motel was full and there was absolutely no other accommodation in Gisborne that evening. Realising my predicament (I'd have slept in a car if I'd had one), the wonderful proprietors invited me into their own accommodation and made me feel so welcome. I feel this story demonstrates the ethics of the business and what nice people they are. I cannot thank them enough.

We were in Gisborne for a wedding. Nice motel, very clean. We had a studio room which was small but adequate. It was handy to the wedding venue and a short drive into town. Staff were helpful and friendly
