Very friendly hosts, lovely surroundings and pool. Room was spacious, clean and well laid out. After arriving hot and tired after a long motorcycle ride, the shower was a delight. The " brought in " Pizza for dinner was great, as was a cold beer after !

We stayed 3 nites up from Wellington for softball tournament. The owners were really friendly. The room was the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. The pool was lovely. Close to city. Owners should be proud of themselves for keeping the place well maintained and clean. Highly recommend

The room and ensuite bathroom was very nice and clean. We stayed for 2 nights and on the second day we arrived with towels changed and all the supplies restocked which we didn't expect from a hotel of such a price. The owners are quite new for the place, so they try to do their best to make your experience...

It's hot in a humid in this part of NZ especially at this time of the year. The rooms we had were far too tiny for 2 adults and kids per room. Plus there was no air conditioning. This is a major problem. Wifi was also problematic. The motel boast free wifi but they used a cheap provider (Zenbu) that...

The rooms are Corporate Studios. No where in our description does it say we have Air Conditioning. However, there are fans provided. You booked thru an on-line agent. You did not declare that you had two children. If you had advised of the two children when BOOKING thru the agent you would have been advised that the room was not...

I stayed in Room 9 , it was very clean and pleasant, The office staff where really nice and accommodating, would stay there again. Swimming pool was really clean. Slightly further from the town but that is a good thing if you don't want the traffic noise.

Room was very clean and tidy and the owners are really nice and helpful, good people. Pool was clean and the location is handy. The location is handy to town but not really for walking so make sure you have a car, it is a motor inn after all.

Spacious and comfortable with great bathroom area! The best thing about this place is the staff- from the owners to the cleaning staff, everyone was lovely, friendly and helpful! Wifi really needs sorting out - zenbu is not good enough. Weak connection that disconnects as soon as your phone locks, and you have to re-enter the password every time (can't...

Stopped over here for one night in Gisborne. Couldn't have picked a better place - there were others a bit further central, but nothing as good as this one and for the price. Had a lovely apartment style unit the spa bath, cleanliness and room comfort were top notch.The location is on the edge of town but even those closer...
