Excellent in all respects”
Super-clean; great location; welcoming staff at reception and restaurant; very comfortable bed; hooks, shelves and power points in all the right places; full Sky TV channels; excellent shower; everything in perfect working order and condition; and lots of small touches that show the owners have thought carefully about the comfort of their guests (e.g. fresh milk, scissors to open packets, insect spray, etc). If all motels were like this one, travelling would be a breeze. A fantastic reminder of a standard of hospitality and comfort that was once commonplace across NZ at this (reasonable) price point but that is now (unfortunately) harder and harder to find. Top marks to Captain Cook!
comfortable stay, friendly staff ”
Wonderful experience, will come back again if returning to Gisborne
Our stay over at Captain Cook Motor Lodge,”
Although we only stayed overnight at the lodge, we couldn't have been made more welcome. The staff that attended to us were not only most helpful, but they were polite and efficient. The room we had was really comfy and clean, with all our needs catered for. An extremely pleasant experience.
Best place to stay”
The only downside is a bit of night time traffic noise with big rigs heading to and from the nearby Port. The upside is a great location, big spacious rooms, super-clean and well cared for furnishings, kitchenette, endless carparking, onsite restaurant, 50+ channel Sky TV in all rooms, reliable Wifi, comfy beds, decent linen & towels, great hot water pressure, and all the little bits you might need in-room right down to a 300ml bottle of fresh milk. Proper Kiwi motel hospitality - just like they all used to be, but a rare find now. Swift and friendly check-in & checkout. Highly recommended.
Arrived late and rang the hotel to tell them no fuss ,very helpful and made it easy.wonderful place to stay,very well priced.
Great break away”
Exceptionally helpful staff. Very clean and new appliances.. Great location for Waikanae beach and town. Rooms all on ground floor with little outside seating areas. Only negative....The bed was a bit tired. Would recommend a new mattress.
Very nice central place to stay. Quiet with lovely staff. Great value for money. Toilet flush kept sticking and water in toilet kept running if I didn't go back and give it a little tap. Also, the bathroom tap was noisy to move up or down for more pressure......little things which did not detract in any way from our stay. Lovely Hostess!
Top stay in Gisborne”
What an awesome hotel soooooooo clean. Can't fault the cleanliness at all 😊😊😊 Lovely friendly staff. Highly recommend
this motel would have to be the cleanest and most well presented accommodation that we have ever stayed at,the facillities were faultless as was the bed and the spa bath was something to die for,easy to find and close to town ,would most highly recommend
Veyr pleasant stay, right by the beach”
Very friendly place with nice, tidy rooms and a great location a block from the beach and withing walking distance of town.
Easy to find and comfortable”
We found the staff friendly and the check-in & out process was quick and efficient. While the mattress might be a bit soft for some, we slept really well. The road noise was minimal and the air con was good.
Beautiful and clean, short walk to beach.”
We had my elderly mum with us. We all had our own private bedroom . Spacious and light. Beautiful and clean. Great value for money. Staff were very helpful.
Nice little one nighter”
Lovely property! Was a little disappointed with the lack of fans and aircon but we survived. Friendly locals and motel manager. Will recommend!
Great place to stay”
Very friendly staff. Good sized room. Would definitely recommend.
a great place to stay ”
Great. The only thing I didn't like was the pressure in the shower. Very strong and uncomfortable
reasonable price but wouldn't recommend”
Noticed there were much bigger and better equipped units than the one we had. Coffee and tea making but no kitchenette. Had to walk quite a way for eating out - the restaurant at the motel was expensive for the run of the mill food on the menu. Bathroom was small as was the bed area. We should have paid more for a better unit.
Great welcome ”
Nice people. Large quiet room.
Really nice place”
really nice place, just a little expensive is only downfall
Good location to beach”
Very tidy and well appointed for our 1 night stop over.
Close to town and really well set out”
check-in was a breeze, parking even for a truck was easy and the rooms were warm and comfortable. room was small but serviced all the basic requirements.
