Really pleased

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Jul 2020via mobile
We stayed here for one night, warm welcome and friendly staff. The room was spacious and very clean, everything worked well and the bed was super comfortable. Location is very close to the beach, yet quiet. Short walk into town, too. We liked our stay, would return without hesitation.

We rented a 2 bedroom. Plenty of room. Staff very friendly. Good location to CBD and beach. Decent value for price. They have a restaurant but we didn’t try it. Would probably stay again if in the area.

The service we received was beyond what was expected. Our vehicle broke down in the gorge between Opotiki and Gisborne. We were taken to this motor lodge. The lady owner was lovely. She offered us her spare vehicle while ours was being repaired. We ended up staying for 2 nights and half a day, we were only charged for the two nights. We had dinner there and the meal was great and well priced. Room was spacious, clean and tidy. Very close to the beach and the town, you can walk everywhere. Would definatlely stay there again.

Great rooms, we’ve been up here for business for over 2 months, fantastic friendly staff/Operators.

Restaurant meals are very good.

Rooms have everything you need - the rooms are clean and tidy.

We stayed in this motel for two nights in the weekend and we found it excellent.
The rooms were large, well stocked with everything you should need and extremely clean.
They had parking right outside our room, and a great area out the back of our unit to sit in the sun with a wine or two.
We ate tea at the restaurant and that was amazing too, lovely large meals.
The manager was friendly and very accomodating and so was her staff.
She does a great job, keep at the good work guys.
We would highly recommend this motel to others, and will definitely be back again ourselves.

Room tip: We stayed in room 20, with a great super king bed, but all rooms looked pretty good.
