Gore's home away from home. I cannot think of anything that I did not like about the Esplanade Motel. If you are looking for a place to stay in Gore, look no further than the Esplanade Motel.

Amy - New Zealand

The most impressed I have been with a motel I have ever stayed at. Friendly and considerate owner. We requested to make up the sofa bed in the lounge, although we were a family with three adults in a two-bedroom unit. Upon arrival, the owner told us the the bedding for the sofa bed had been prepared, and quickly made it up when she knew we preferred her to do so as soon as we checked in. Assorted cookware and pots. Very clean oven and oven trays. A washing machine in unit 10. Clothes line in the yard. Very spacious lounge and kitchen - and in this price range? Best I have ever stayed in. Best value for money in Gore. We will definitely come back.

The motel is situated on SH1, fairly close (less than 1km) to the centre of Gore. It is very well furnished and to an extremely high standard, the bedrooms are spacious, and the beds are very comfy. There is free internet and plenty of places to eat around the town. Things to do include the aviation museum at Mandeville and also fishing. Superb motel in Gore.

Trevor - New Zealand

For what would be described as a standard motel, it was like being in a high class hotel. Great.

Thomas - China

Nice people, nice town. The room was warm, clean, and spacious. And the owner recommended a restaurant which was one of the best in our trip. Love Gore!

Wynand - New Zealand

The setup at Esplanade was neat and tidy. It was easy to drive to, and the staff were friendly and informative. I really enjoyed my stay, even the oil heater was switched on for me, to make sure the room was not too cold. I will definitely be back to stay over again.

Hui - Singapore

Lot of heaters to warm the whole place, love it! One of my best stays on NZ holiday! Perfect place to rest after a long drive from Milford Sound. Friendly host too!

Robyn - New Zealand

Loved the built-in fire with flames, made it so cosy. Excellent cooking facilities and tools, everything was nice.

Sarah - United Kingdom

Great stop over. Fab little town. Great steak at Howl at the Moon. Scrupulously clean, excellent location. Can't recommend highly enough. It's a credit to the owners. Thank you.

Anne - New Zealand

Easy to find, handy parking, unit had own area. Unit clean, all facilities we needed, we were in the disability unit, no problems with moving around the unit, good heating, didn't take long to warm. Owners friendly, very obliging, nothing a problem.

Rhonda - Australia

Great stay. Comfy bed, great kitchen, comfy lounge chairs, stylish crockery and glasses.

Jessica - New Zealand

Loved how accommodating the hosts were and after a very full on day at a wedding it was really appreciated coming back to a warm unit ready for us to just fall into bed!

Michael - USA

Fabulous. Just a short walk to Gore. Adequate cooking facilities to prepare your meals. Gillian is a wonderful hostess providing all the info you need about the area.

Denis - New Zealand

I've stayed at this place many times and have used most of the units over that time. Consistently the Esplanade Motels are comfortable, and quiet, with good facilities.

Neil - New Zealand

A real treat to find a place like this - we could happily live in Unit 10! The rooms were spacious and exceptionally well furnished. The beds were comfortable, the shower was superb, the kitchen was great, with plenty of free beverages and bikkies. Jill was a great host. We will be back and would happily recommend this motel to anyone!!

Jamie - Australia

Very spacious and well appointed. Very comfortable beds, great hot shower, and the owners could not be more helpful and friendly! Best motel in NZ!
