White Heron Motor Lodge
Ranked #15 of 26 Hotels in Gisborne
Reviewed 26 July 2017

I stayed at the White Heron for 2 nights during a trip around the East Coast of the North Island. Check in was a breeze, they knew my name and were expecting me, were very friendly and helpful showing me to my room and where everything was. The Lodge was so easy to find, really close to the city centre, shops and supermarkets and has everything you need in the rooms which were clean, tidy and very comfortable to stay in. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay here again on my next trip to Gisborne

Just 2 blocks from downtown, great manager and scrupulously clean and comfortable. King size bed a real bonus plus a serious sized flat screen. Shower pressure great and toiletries just right. All the conveniences if you want to self cater including a decent sized dining table and couch.

Booked online while travelling to Gisborne, pulled into the Lodge just off one of the main roads in Gisborne, easy to find. Checked in and was shown room, the Heat pump was put straight on for us and warmed up real quick. Huge bed and a shower room separate to each other, and a spa close to the bed which was cool as we could watch tv and drink a bottle of bubbly the same time. This place has just had a refurb and is spotless and modern. Great spot and will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a spa bath

Impressed with the room after the renovations. Good space and a light and bright feeling. Shower over the spa bath would not be good with anybody of a more mature age but for us it afforded lots of room. Good range of refreshments teas & plunger coffee. Bed was super comfy with electric blanket which was a pleasant surprise. Left feeling relaxed ready for next leg of our journey.
