We arrived to a lovely welcoming greeting from the 2 owners of this well-appointed Motor Lodge. Room 10 appeared to be great, all clean and well maintained etc. But we soon discovered it was extremely noisy at night, with light flashing as cars on the main road passed by. We were told in the morning by the lovely owner that this is usually the last room they let out as it is the noisiest - we had booked months prior, but of course Expedia had only booked it the week before! Hence, we ended up with the worst room in the best motel. The location is great with just a short walk down to the beach. Would recommend coming here, but definitely not to room 10.
They went out of their way to make our stay a great one. The unit was clean and tidy and everything worked well. Once they knew we needed a softer bed it was attended to. Close to a beautiful beach and lots of Sky channels.
A great pet friendly motel a short distance from fabulous Wainui Beach. Very welcoming hosts, and nice big room - including spa bath - and private outside area. Genuinely pet friendly & our wee pooch was allowed into the unit with us (nice big paddock at back of motel where the dog could have a good sniff). Good selection of tv channels. When we stayed here there was a pizza cart operating in the motel car park - absolutely fantastic pizzas.
A little pricey but good wifi tv and a bed that suited me. Pet friendly so I had my dog along. The suite is huge with tv in bedroom and living area. Bench top job etc. Good toilets. Clean and tidy . With a late checkout a bonus.
We are all very aware of cleanliness these days and felt that the motel was a bit grubby. The floor tiles felt dirty & kitchen sink waste disgusting. Didn’t think they any extra sanitising had been done.
We stayed for two nights, the room was a good size for a family, clean and tidy. A short stroll down to one of the best beach breaks in the country. The surf wasn’t great but did catch a few nice waves. They take dogs which is rare, our courtyard needed a little more dog proofing. I left a bag in the apartment and the owners sent it via courier the next day saving a massive detour to return and pick it up. Definitely return if we’re ever back In Gisborne.
Really nice place to stay and such easy people to deal with. Super clean and tidy. I work at a motel so instinct has me scrutinising cleanliness and I can honestly say I couldn't find anything to fault. So peaceful and oh so relaxing. Definitly are going back for a few days of r&r. Thank you to everyone for such a nice time.
We stayed at Ocean Beach for three nights in one of their luxury studio rooms. We were greeted by Rob the owner on arrival. Our room was large and spacious with sliding doors out to a private patio area with table and seats. Two minutes walk to Wanui Beach and approx 5 minutes by car into Gisborne city centre. Shop across the road. Loved our stay here and would highly recommend this lovely motel.
I have been travelling for a few weeks across the country - staying at a different motor lodge every day - so went from Napier to Gisborne - loved this little beach , the Motel was lovely , there was a patio on the room and a huge bed , all the sky TV and free Wifi, full kitchenette and across the road there is a store that you can order pizza etc - or go for breakfast on the weekend - they do food Thursday-sunday -This was a lovely little place - I was a bit too close to the road and the trucks passing overnight were a disturbance , but not too bad
