Due to the popularity of Gisborne, I stayed (2 nights) a 5 minute drive out on the main road to the city centre at this motor lodge. The room was nice and quiet, clean with a comfortable bed, nice little desk area to complete some work and basic amenities. The staff were

Very friendly staff, but that is about where the compliments end. On check in, to a smoke free room, there was a suffocating stench as if the room just emptied out from a night club with cigarette smell. To make it worse they had plugged in an air freshener on high, so between

We do have a no smoking policy at our motel, but the guest that was in this unit previously was a heavy smoker and his personal items did smell of smoke. Because this guest checked in early, we had a very small turn around period from check out to check in. We had changed all the bed covers, and wiped to walls down trying to eliminate the odor, we did have a air freshener in the unit, but was not very effective. All accommodation providers have this problem occasionally, we are just sorry that it happened to this guest.If he had mentioned to us how unhappy he was, even though we were fully booked we maybe could of moved some guest around,so we could move him. As this guest was working at night, we discuss on check in that we would not check with him to see if he needed anything. As he had his NO Thanks sign on his door every day, we left him to sleep.I did check with him when I saw him to check if needed anything and he said he was fine. Out internet is loaded with 10kb per room per day, and uploads at midday every day.If the guest needed more, all he had to do is ask.It reset at midday, because most guest are out most of the day, and using it at night. Shower pressure is something nobody has every mentioned to ask, but we are looking into that.

We came back to Gisborne for family occasion. The rooms were just what we needed - comfortable, very clean with a small kitchen to make tea & coffee. The weather was not hot so the fan in the lounge was good.

Good size rooms, very clean tidy, has all you need for a night or two, WiFi, plenty of parking etc. A couple of shops takeaway nearby or a 30 minute into town which has plenty dining options. Breakfast can be ordered from the motel by lodging your menu options the night before
