Couple of nights was ok
Good location near beach. Comfortable although a bit old and tired accommodation. Very friendly staff.

Needs a spuce up
Was a little disappointed that the microwave was broken and we had planned on having lovely warm soup for dinner - when reception was contacted they did offer for us to bring down to them to heat up, there were other units empty that a microwave could have been given to us as it was a very cold night in Gisborne and I didn't fancy leaving the unit. HAve stayed here before and it is a comfortable motel which probably needs a bit of a tidy up - the soap dispenser in the show also fell off the wall when trying to dispense the soap. Handy to town though and reasonable priced

Basic, but clean and comfortable.
The fixtures and fittings were slightly dated but overall my room was clean and comfortable. It's on a very quiet street so there was minimal road noise. Very close to the beach too.
