Pros:We stayed in Unit 8, upstairs, with a balcony overlooking Poverty Bay and the boardwalk. Considering that this town is where New Zealand's history began (at least to some), the town is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed walking the boardwalk and relaxing after the hairpin turns of Hy. 2 (from Okotiki to Gisborne). The unit had everything we could hope to have.... a small kitchen, a wonderful shower, a separate living and bedroom. It is a simple hotel, but clean and well-appointed. The interior feels a bit like a very nice suite on a cruise ship. Room Tip: Second floor rooms provide a better view and a private balcony. First floor is perfect for families...

Cons:The interior lighting could be better (a dimmer or a lamp with a shade).
