This place is handy to town and the parking is good but the plumbing from all the rooms around me is so loud as to be claustrophobia-inducing. I wouldn't come back. I dread to think what is going to be like when people get up to use the loo in the middle of the night, and they're going to hate me when I get up at 5am.

A two night stay at Pacific Harbour was a great choice. Clean facilities. Reception personnel friendly and welcoming. We were there in the winter but the unit was warm and cosy. Location - handy to the CBD and an easy walk to several restaurants nearby. Lovely view of the marina. Pleasant walk around the marina. Tairawhiti museum is worth a visit.

A very comfortable Mote,l clean, good views on the balcony to the port and marina spacious room but the front door step is a significant trip hazard as they are hard to see being terracotta tile laid down on terracotta tile. Visually brilliant tile work as all lines match but you can't distinguish the change in height tripped twice almost broke my toes. A very good continental breakfast.

We stayed for 3 nights and found the accommodation to be very comfortable, well maintained and clean. The location was ideal with an easy stroll to restaurants and the main retail shopping centre. Our lovely host, Karen, was very helpful by suggesting places to visit and eat and providing general information to us. It was very good value and I would highly recommend to anyone intending to visit Gisborne

Location was great, at the end of city with a view of restaurants that you can walk to for lunch or dinner. The view of a lakeside with palm trees and walk along for daily morning or evening walks. The warehouse within walking distance. Own kichen in your room, bed was comfotable, lots of cupboard space, 2 seater to watch tv, guest laundry handy. Just a 5-10 minute walk to gisborne city centre. 10-15 minute walk to the beach where you can enjoy ice cream, fish & chips and more frim captain morgans takeawyays right next to the beach.
