The closest motel to the sand and surf at Wainui Beach!Wainui Beach is situated 5 minutes (by car) north of Gisborne city centre and 50 metres from the sand and surf of Wainui Beach.We are a classic kiwiana beach holiday motel with lush sub-tropical gardens and grassy lawns right outside our 9 spacious, self-contained 1 and 2 bedroom ground floor units.Access to Gisborne's most popular surfing and walking beach is literally a hop, jump and a skip away! We are pet friendly and your family dog will love the long golden sandy beach to run and play on, as will the kids! Outside of the holiday season (Dec/Jan) it is practically your own private beach. A little piece of paradise on the East Coast.This is the perfect location for your annual summer holiday or for a short winter break when the sun is shining only in Gisborne!

We booked here as our friends had dogs and we could take them. The motel is 5 minutes from Gisborne which is neither here nor there. Located across the road from the beach was great. We took 2 one bedroom units complete with kitchenettes. They had everything we needed and so much so we ended up eating in every night instead of going out and about. A great extension, whether intentional or not, was the extended roof which meant the outdoor area could be used even when there were showers. Lovely friendly hosts also.

Perfect location if you are after the beach and first sunrise of the world. Walking distance to various entry points to the famous Wainui Beach, this motel offers basic and tidy accommodation for our family of 4. We had all we need and the two-bedroom unit was clean and neat, generally speaking. For the low price we paid during the long weekend we had no complaint of this traditional Kiwi style motel. And they provide free wi-fi too! Nice considerate neighbours with pets. The unit we stayed in looked recently painted.

We chose the motel as we could take our dogs and it was close to the beach. The perfectly equipped little kitchenette was great for the four days we stayed, so much in fact we bought local produce from the Gisborne Farmers Market and enjoyed it at the motel in the evening. We loved the Wainui Store which is just a wander down the road for fish and chips and breakfast butties. The beach is on the doorstep, perfect to watch the sunrise and walk endlessly up and down enjoying the view. Our group of 4 took two rooms and had loads of space between us. The managers were very helpful. Don't be mistaken, this motel is not in the centre of Gisborne, it is a 5 min drive between noise and in a city to tranquil and next to an amazing beach!

The Wainui Beach Motel is located across the road from one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Both onsite managers are extremely helpful and make a point to make your holiday experience at the motel one to remember. The Motel is neat and tidy with rustic finishings. The rooms are spacious and can accommodate large families or a group of friends comfortably. You are greeted by one of the most gentlest dog on the plant, "Gus" who would lick you to death if he could. The area of the motel is quiet - Great for relaxing. To get into town it was a quick drive to the town centre. I will be back - Love, love, love this Motel.
