    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Excellent. Very friendly owners. The house is very comfortable in a quiet part of gisborne but only a 10/15 minute walk from the centre. 25 min walk to the beach. Amazing breakfast. Lovely to stay in an older classic New Zealand property instead of an impersonal new motel for a change.
