We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit which was very nice and the spa bath was a bonus. Also had full kitchen. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Free newspaper. Very handy to town.


Had the two bedroom unit. Very clean and fully equipped. The spa tub was definitely worth it. One thing to note is that the owners are having a little trouble coordinating the prices online. Had to pay a lot more than what was quoted when I booked online (online agent). Best to call in an check with them first. They offered us some drinks to compensate for this misunderstanding.


Had a one night stay last Wednesday and we were very impressed with our unit. Bed so comfortable, mini bar supplies in fridge. Bathroom excellent and so close to town centre. Owners organised a taxi for us for next morning to catch early flight. Thank you.

I stayed here two weeks ago, and currently staying here now for a few days. The nation-wide company I work for puts us in this motel for the incredible service and I have to say i am grateful for this. I find the hosts lovely to deal with, very helpful and nothing is too much to ask. the rooms are lovely and clean, just the way they should be. As an ex 5 star hotel cleaner and supervisor in the tourist industry, I am very impressed with the White Heron and would recommend this Motel as the place to stay in Gisborne.


My family of four stayed for for nights. We had a bereavement in the family and they were very sensitive to our needs - servicing our room in the afternoon while we were at the funeral allowing some of us to sleep in, while making sure we had everything we needed.
They kindly let us use their office printer several times too.
The rooms were very clean and well presented.
