The location outside of Gisborne on the way to the coast, next to the beach was idyllic. Okitu Store is in walking distance for everyday amenities. The Wifi was spotty. There was a lack of information regarding the power saving features attached to the key. Which made resting and low key touring ideal. Great for recuperation - not great if you want to do some online work.

Hicks Bay Motor Lodge: We arrived to a lovely welcoming greeting from the 2 owners of this well appointed Motor Lodge. Room 10 appeared to be great, all clean and well maintained etc. But we soon discovered it was extremely noisy at night, with light flashing as cars on the main road passed by. We were told in the morning by lovely owner that this is usually the last room they let out as it is the noisiest - I had booked months prior, but of course Expedia had only booked it the week before! Hence we ended up with the worst room in the best motel! The location is great with just a short walk down to the beach. Would recommend coming here, but definitely not to room 10!
