We were pleased with this motel even though it was not our first choice (already booked!).

The rooms are spacious and pretty modern with good ameneties. Each room has a garden area with seating. The beach is literally across the street and it is about 20 minutes to walk into town.

Not a lot of information provided when we booked in but, we managed to find stuff online or in the information folder in the rooms. One downside is that a few workers were obviously staying over and had rather noisy early starts.

Lovely motel, great location, super friendly hosts, really spacious room which was super clean & recently tastefully refurbished (room 1) and fabulously comfortable bed.
We definitely recommend a stopover here. 10/10

Super friendly reception, clean room, handy location. Was impressed by their desire to lessen their carbon footprint by recycling initiatives. The only downside was the parking was a bit tight for a large SUV. Definetly stay there again as a first choice.

Room tip: Ground floor accommodation

Stayed here for 2 nights - really excellent and clean motel, with friendly owners. It's a bit of a walk into Gisborne centre, but there is really easy access to the beach.

WiFi was fine and fast, and the refill of ground coffee was very much appreciated!

The Ahi Kaa is a great little Motor Inn/Hotel. The Proprietor is friendly who loves a yarn and was happy to answer questions regarding the area.
The rooms were light, bright & roomy with a clean modern feel. The hotel is located in a reasonably quiet street and a great ocean boardwalk is located across the road. It is a 15/20 minute flat walk to town. There is a nice restaurant above a nearby Surf Club only a few minutes walk away. The hotel was reasonably priced and you well worth considering if passing through Gisborne
