My stay at Surf City Logde absolutely made my visit to Gisbourne. Barry and Ros were so warm and welcoming and provided lots of local information and suggestions on activities. Barry's culinary skills have to be experienced to be believed... you won't get a better breakfast anywhere. The lodge is in easy walking distance to the main strip. All this combines to make an experience worth several times the price.

I am so happy and grateful to have found Surf City Lodge in the resplendent and historical Gisborne. To experience such warmth and welcome, quality and character, comfort and security from any 5 star accommodation anywhere on the planet, is rare. However it is uniquely and magnificently given to you here by Barry and Roz. When I arrived it was more like a homecoming than a checking in and thereafter I was part of the family. Having strict dietary requirements, the breakfast they created for me is amongst the finest I will ever eat. I'm sure this will be echoed by the beautiful Maori and Påkehå ladies Dolly, Karen and Rose who were staying there too. Before they left they sang a song for our hosts as a Maori tradition commending them for their exemplary hospitality. One

What a fantastic place to stay. I found it by chance and was lucky they were free the dates I needed to stay. Barry and Ros are wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt right at home. They genuinely care about their guests and make their home, "your" home while you're there. Best cooked breakfast I've had in a long time.

The hosts were specialists in hospitality and were outstanding in their service. We were offered an upgrade on our booking and the breakfasts were amazing. The house was refurbished in a grand style with wood walls and lead glass windows that give it a world-class status. It is also located within walking distance of downtown Gisborne and the beach, so very centrally located, while also being in a quiet neighbourhood. I would definitely recommend and we will be back next time we are in Gisborne. Our sincerest thanks!

We “accidentally” found the B&B on the internet and booked it, without expecting too much. We got very positively surprised about everything! Barry and his wife are lovely and very warm hosts with plenty of recommendations. They tried everything to make our stay as pleasant and amazing as possible. The freshly prepared breakfast was just outstanding and we couldn’t imagine a better place to stay in Gisborne.
