Lovely view of the Port of Gisborne

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Oct 2020
This is a conveniently located property, with a fabulous view. Clean, quiet and has all the amenities and comfort of a spacious apartment..Walking distance to several local restaurants and the CBD of Gisborne. Gracious hosts. Definitely on my list for a return.

But that was about it really. The location gave you nice views of the port area and walking distance to the food outlets in that area plus easy walking to town. However, the bed was very uncomfortable and rooms quiet noisy. There is no double glazing or modernizing in the rooms. There was plenty of space though. The shower was over the bath and needed great care as no non slip mat. Ok for one night but would not stay longer
