About the motel

Come and relax in the beautiful city of Gisborne and let the folk at the Eastland Motor Lodge make your stay one to remember. Gisborne’s main beaches are close by where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll, swim or surf. Waikanae Beach is known for its great surfing and you can also see Young Nicks Head from the beach. Wainui Beach is only a 15-minute drive away and is also a great beach for surfers.

An easy 25 minutes’ drive will have you arriving at many lovely beaches up the East Coast or you can visit Eastwoodhill Arboretum, a similar distance away, which is known worldwide for its many beautiful trees, particularly beautiful in the autumn when the leaves change colour. Just past the Arboretum is the Rere falls and Rere Rock Slide, another icon of the Gisborne Region.

Eastland Motor Lodge was a purpose built 8 unit motel in 1970 and was completed as a 17 unit motel with an outdoor swimming pool by the mid 70s. One of its main features is the 2 acres of majestic land than surrounds the buildings with a great mix of trees including some spectacular towering palms.
