We stayed here one night with about 22 of us for an event in Gisborne. The rooms were really reasonable and very CLEAN. We all had a cooked breakfast in the morning and it was great. Bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, scrambled eggs baked beans and toast, percolated coffee for a great price. If you are booking a large group the...

This is one of the best value for money motels we have stayed in anywhere in New Zealand. The unit we had was in excellent condition, very roomy, quiet and everything we needed was provided. It's a little further from the town centre than other places but still just a few minutes away by car.. Very impressed.

Clean units, 3 beds in separate room, double in lounge. Kitchen well-equipped, could have done with more power points though. Best thing was the salt water pool, plenty of sun lounges and umbrellas for a nice time by the pool.

We had a group of 4 family members relocating 2 of them after an extended overseas trip. After a long drive from Wellington we appreciated the quite very clean family unit located at the rear of the property with plenty of parking for an extra vehicle. The generous free wifi allowance allowed us to search for flats and household goods....

We had a most reasonable rate for a one bedroomed uni that allowed two friends to sleep in separate rooms. There's no noise as the units are away from the road. It is easy to find on the main road. The accommodation is clean and tidy.

We arrived a little earlier than the check-in time but they managed to get us a room - and even upgraded us to a bigger one that has been recently refurbished. The service we received was very warm and helpful, and provided us with suggestions to what we can do during our one night stay in Gisborne. The room was...

Not so imposing from the street but that changes on entering. From the warm welcome to the size and decor of the unit with large bed. Air conditioning was appreciated. Although we did not use the pool and child play area they were well maintained. Breakfast in the motel's 'Diner' was good value and exceeded expectations. A good way to...

Large rooms with all you can ask for at a very reasonable price. Clean and tidy and while the rooms appear a bit dated they are being refurbished room by room. Plenty of space with playground and ample parking.

Have stayed here a couple of times will be back, great value, owners are lovely, the rooms are spacious and clean, plenty of kitchen space so you could cook if you wanted to and the pool was warm even in October would highly recommend it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come and relax in the beautiful city of Gisborne and let the folk at the Eastland Motor Lodge make your stay one to remember. Gisborne’s main beaches are close by where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll, swim or surf. Waikanae Beach is known for its great surfing and you can also see Young Nicks Head from the beach. Wainui Beach is only a 5-minute drive away and is also a great beach for surfers.An easy 35 minutes’ drive will have you arriving at many lovely beaches up the East Coast or you can visit Eastwoodhill Arboretum, a similar distance away, which is known worldwide for its many beautiful trees, particularly beautiful in the autumn when the leaves change colour. Just past the Arboretum is the Rere Rock Slide, another icon of the Gisborne Region.Eastland Motor Lodge was a purpose built 8 unit motel in 1970 and was completed as a 17 unit motel with an outdoor swimming pool by the mid 70s. One of its main features is the 2 acres of majestic land than surrounds the buildings with a great mix of trees including some spectacular towering palms. ... more   less
