    Beautiful setting, very friendly motelier, thoroughly enjoyable meal, and introduction to some wonderful Gisborne wines that we later sourced for further enjoyment. Access is via a skinny windy road that we were glad not to meet others using!

    The location of Lottin Point Motel is spectacular. Awesome walks along the road and the wild and rocky foreshore. The unit was fine, the chairs very uncomfortable though. Mosquito screens at the windows would make a huge improvement. The food was tasty and pricey.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Misleading property description, overpriced and unwelcoming. Positives: 1.The property has a stunning location with uninterrupted sea views. 2.It was clean and the beds comfortable. Negatives: 1.The young woman on reception was extremely unwelcoming on arrival, and when I said I had booked a 2 bedroom unit, she answered "didn't you look at the pictures on the website?". She later offered a second unit was available, if we wanted separate bedrooms. She was, however, more friendly the next day. 2.The website is misleading in offering two bedroom units - the units have 1 bedroom with another bed in the main area where you enter, along with the kitchenette & dining table. It is not suitable for 2 couples travelling together both requiring a separate bedroom for privacy. 3. The units had not been checked by housekeeping for missing items: 2 spoons, 1 knife & wine glasses were mismatched and 1 was missing. We were able to pick up the missing items from the bar when we needed them, but, again, this was unexpected in a property of this price. 3.The dinner had to be ordered in advance, which was fine, and was OK but overpriced for what was produced. Due to the remote location, the restaurant was the only option available for food. 4. The suggested walk to the adjacent beach was extremely dangerous - a series of ropes to absail up and down for the last half. The warning sign at the top advised against it if you were unfit - a gross understatement!

  • 2.0.Poor

    The view was spectacular, shame about the owner. Arrived 1 hr early, as tourists often do, thought we’d grab something in the restaurant (sign said it was open). We wander in to be told by owner “take a step back! We’re shut except for guests it’s the off season” as she walks us out the door and locks it. “we’re checking in shortly” I replied “well you’re not our guests til 2pm we’re busy getting your rooms ready”. If I could have gotten a refund I wouldn’t have gone back. Thought it was just her but then heard the woman I think she referred to as her daughter be just as rude to another guest asking for a kids menu. These people either need to shut for the off season or find another job. They shouldn’t be in hospitality at all. Good thing they don’t rely on repeat business - they’d go out of business. And don’t even get me started on the 2 Alsatians wandering loose in the carpark!
