Reviewed 25 September 2016

Top marks to the owners of this establishment, who have taken over the reins after a number of years with managers in place. The refurbishment process is well under way with tasteful redecoration and very comfortable beds. Cleanliness was excellent and facilities were all one could ask for. The owners were very accommodating, changing our dates at short notice due to a family bereavement. Lovely warm welcome and a great sense of humour - always essential in a motel if you want return custom. The bathroom could do with a little modernising, but it was adequate for our needs. The room, (No. 2) was surprisingly quiet considering its proximity to the road.

Room Tip: Street noise was not a problem, but the further back in the property you go, the less noise there wo...

Very clean room with wonderfully comfortable bed. Spotless cleanliness and
very pleasant hosts and all the kitchen equipment you need - what more
could you want.
On the main road but very quiet. Didn't have breakfast but it was available
at a very good price.

Stayed over for one night, 8 Feb 16, Advertised the most comfortable beds in Gisborne, I would say probably in New Zealand. Spotless accommodation, smelt like a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.

Our 1st stay here was good ~ We would return again.

We stayed in Room 9.

The Bed & Pillows were very very comfortable.

The room was spotlessly clean and well appointed with Tea, Coffee and Milk, 32" wall mounted Flast Sceen TV and a table and 2 x chairs.

The room was SO quiet and also warm while outside was cool.

The only complaints were:

1) The state of the bathroom cabinet ( rotting away ) = time to be replaced.

2) No Security Chain on the front door lock. = The 2nd day I asked for it to be repaired \ repalced and it was completed within 1 hour! However I do feel management should have picked this up and done this automatically.

Close by to Petrol Stations, Take Aways and restaurants.

Made a good base while we went out looking for Real Estate to purchase.

Room Tip: Rear rooms will be the quietest ( away form the main road in to Gisborne )

We had business in Gibourne and stayed at this lovely motel again...really nice, clean and roomy units. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

The beds are extremely comfortable with lovely white cotton sheets ...beautiful white towels and even face wipes in the bathroom for removing face makeup instead of the White face cloths .

Will definetly stay here on our next visit
