Well maintained, comfortable, popular with truckies and tradies during the week and beachgoing families on weekends. A bit noisy at night when the port is in full swing but not a huge issue.

Yes,it's a busy main road and the logging trucks are very frequent.. But the size and comfort of the room was a nice surprise. Has a popular onsite eatery & is very close to the gisborne CBD. very large parking spaces a plus as well.

Stayed here with a group of mates and the rooms are clean and Ridley with nice facilities. Beds are comfortable and very clean. Wouldn’t have a problem with staying here again. Can be a little noisy with some trucks driving past as I think it’s the main route to the port for some trucks. Could be wrong though.

Stayed at this property on Friday night on Friday 11th September for a night. Staff very welcoming and friendly, they upgraded our room which was.nuch appreciated. We found the room warm and comfortable, as it was a cold wet day they had turned on our heat pump which was much appreciated on our arrival. We would stay again thank you.
