Nice place

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Sept 2020via mobile
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.

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.
