Across the road from the fabulous Waikanae Beach with its great boardwalk. This motel has contractors staying here. New owners but a huge improvement in cleaning required . 4 night stay but no price reduction but virtually no service. Place really needed vacuuming. I did suggest that be done more often which the friendly owners agreed to. Hope for improvement in future.
A very friendly greeting and I was shown a room which I took. Its really clean and the bed was super comfortable, but its on old style hotel with a dated kitchen and bathroom, for the money Id like something more modern but that doesn't happen in Gisborne. I was also woken up from the noise of workmen leaving before sunrise in the upstairs rooms, not really loud but not good soundproofing.
No view of the beach, but very close. Clean, quiet unit upstairs (book for downstairs if any mobility issues). Continental breakfast available and was quite generous. We had booked in advance and checking in was simple and welcoming. Staff very helpful.
We booked for 3 nights leading up to Easter and didn't get one decent nights sleep. We had asked for an upstairs unit, as we find downstairs units get all the overhead occupant's noise, and we're both light sleepers. We weren't informed until we arrived in reception that they only had a downstairs unit available for us; even worse, it was under two upstairs units occupied by baby elephants. Why didn't they let us know when they got our booking request? As we said when we left - we could have booked into a decent Bed & Breakfast or found somewhere else to stay for $275 a night if they had let us know immediately. They just wanted our money and we got a very noisy unit, peeling paint in the shower, kitchen and walls and our parking space was taken on the last day. An expensive lesson to learn; never to book in here again. We gave it 2 stars only as it is very handy to town and the beach and the cleaner was very friendly and nice. Not enough to return though.…
This is a lovely Motel across road from main beach and very close to all facilities. Our room was clean, well appointed, and quiet. The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful. We had booked in advanced as we were travelling with a small rescue dog and we had no problems checking in on our arrival.
I need to qualify this by saying that we booked on line and didnt realise there was a booking fee. We arrived and asked if we could book an extra night. After humming and harring we were allocated room 16.It appears to be a converted garage. Luckily we are not very big as the bathroom is minuscule. The wardrobe, kitchen cupboards and mirror appear to have come from a 50s style house. The kitchen curtains hung over the kitchen tap.It smelt very musty as if it had not been aired or used. However it was spotless and the linen was of good quality. As there was only a frosted door and one kitchen window there was no outlook at all so we decided to move on the next day. This particular room is very poor value for money.
Lovely lady and her dog run this place. Not flash, but everything you need. Beds very comfortable,would stay again, . Very close to the beach, and an easy walk to the town centre. Why pay more? Recommended
Had a great stay here, we had a one bedroom room upstairs with a view of the sea. Great location, only have to cross the road, walk a few metres and you are at the beach, the weather was extremely hot so we went swimming twice a day. The motel was clean and tidy, the parking a little tight but overall we would definitely stay here again😀
We had a family unit with sea view for 2 nights and are absolutely satisfied by this choice. Reception was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The unit was spacious, modern, well equipped and comfortable. The motel is very well located on the seafront road, within easy and scenic walk to the port or into Gisborne town, with it’s excellent Museum, parks, shops, cafes and services. Highly recommended!
This photograph says it all. Apart from looking terrible it must be a safety issue and needed to be fixed. As per the title this is the only motel I have ever stayed at with a broken window. It really is not acceptable.
