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.

My partner & I were doing a weekend away on our motorcycles. We chose the Beachcomber because of the price & location, were satisfied on both accounts. The Manager suggest parking our Ducati's out of site of the road behind a newly constructed wall, which also gave us peace of mind. The owner of the Beachcomber Motel are currently doing major up grades to the units & they're looking real nice.(not that you would have known as we weren't inconvenienced in anyway.) Would I stay here again? Absolutely

we were in Gisborne for a sports event, I had contacted and made sure we could stay an extra night - that was fine :-) we had trouble finding the place [ not all ppl have GPS], it was advertised as Motel when in fact the 'hidden' sign said 'apartments', however they were in the middle of reno's. We were welcomed by staff, shown our way, given our milk but no further milk was offered over nxt 3 days [we bought our own], rooms were great, beds were great. right over the road from the beach with super view. Overall very good, need to sort out signage :-)

We had traveled up the Eastern Cape, planning for an overnight in Gisborne, on reading a travelers guide took a detour to Wainui beach. Well worth it. Lovely motel, well appointed rooms with very facility, clean, modern with a courtyard. Across the the road is the Wainui Store which serves the best pizza in NZ take a walk on the beach and enjoy.

Tidy, well layed out rooms, TV in bedroom and lounge. Most units have a sliding door from the bedroom out to a private sitting area. Very clean and a 2 minute walk away from the beach. Great prompt service from a friendly couple. Good parking for cars.

Although value for money for not good for more than a couple of nights. The top floor room was very hot, and with only a fan, ventilation and cooling was not good. Cooking facilities are minimal and well below the standard in most other NZ motels we've been accommodated in. However, it was very clean and well serviced, and mine host friendly and accommodating. I think it's time for an injection of capital to bring this up to standard. I did note the advertised bookings.com ratings of 9.3 and 9.2 ...and have to wonder!

Dad and I stayed for two nights-got there late evening, was recommended a lovely local restaurant called Peppers. The motel had upgraded us to a 1-bed suite which was lovely, didn't have to listen to dad snoring! Gave us a lift this motto catch the intercity bus to Napier-very helpful.
