Lovely Motel
The Waikanae Motel is ideally located for the beach and restaurants and cafes in Gisborne. It is also just around the corner from The Sunshine Brewery, which is a great place to sample locally made beers. The motel itself is lovely, very clean with large rooms with everything you need for comfort. I can definitely recommend this motel.
