We stayed in unit 8. The room was in the centre and very little road noise. The upstairs rooms however make a lot of noise below. Well priced and centrally located just over the road from the beach. Long overdue for a renovation.

Spent a night in a studio apartment when travelling to Gisborne for a dancing competition. Very easy to find and great location just a block back from the beach. Was impressed with the friendly greeting and ease of checking in. Appreciate the local newspaper and...More

The unit was warm and comfortable. Only drawback was just one three seat sofa so watching television had to be done on a hard chair for one person. Unit was small but all we needed. Location was fabulous.

We had a 2 bedroom unit which was exceptionally clean and modern, light and airy. Fully equipped including BBQ. Regretfully could only book in for 1 night which was due to our own poor planning. Friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful time we had. Sunshine, sea, sand, surf. It's all there on the doorstep. Great place, handy to everything, easy walk to town and restaurants, cafes and shopping. Helpful hosts, good service ,nothing too much to ask for.
