“Fantastic Accommodation in Gizzy.”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

When we arrived at Teal Motor Lodge we were greeted by the very inviting swimming pool, the funky artwork on the walls and the gorgeous gardens. We found our unit and I honestly thought they had made a mistake! Our bathroom was HUGE, we had a seperate room all to ourselves and our son had his own room! The decor was lovely and the whole feel of the place was peaceful and quiet. I knew how much the room rate was and I really thought seriously about going back to reception and asking if we had been put in the wrong place by mistake - for the money it was so awesome!

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the complex on the corner. Very quiet and peaceful and private.

The motel is approx. 15 minutes walk from the city centre.
We had one of the bigger rooms and we were fine with this. It was very clean, the staff was very friendly. The motel has a swimming pool and you have also the chance to wash your car. At reception, there is also a free internet access, wireless is available in your rooms.

Having stayed in many motels recently both in NZ aand the USA I would have to rate the teal in the top 10% overall. The service is excellent, the rooms have been modernized to a very good standard and they are absolutely spotless. The rate was very affordable although mine was corporate. All in all a great stay!

Stayed here for a night in November. Very helpful hosts, who did what they could to make it a good visit.

Had booked a one bedroom unit. Not very clean with quite a few dead flies lying on the floor. Door couldn't close completely, which made it cold in the night. The unit had a well equiped kitchen and a fine bathroom. The motel had a fine playground.

Reviewed 29 November 2010

I stayed at the Teal Motor Lodge for two days in October 2010.
Upon arrival, I received a very friendly greeting and was shown to my suite, which was towards the rear of the complex. Parking was immediately outside of the suite.

Immediately upon entering, I realised the attention to detail which has been spoken about in some other reviews here. Everything that could sparkle or shine, did sparkle and shine. The room was absolutely spotless and tastefully decorated, including a flat panel TV. The bed was very comfortable and I slept without any interruption both nights. Being right off the main road (Gladstone Road), it was very easy to get my bearings and find things in the local area.

The grounds around the motel were spotless and impeccably maintained.
Inclusive wi-fi internet access topped off a wonderful experience.

I had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely be back the next time I am in Gisborne. Well done!
