With our wide range of Gisborne accommodation, you can stay in the city that is the first in the world to see the sun every day.
Captain Cook first set foot on New Zealand here, in 1769. One of the sunniest regions in New Zealand, Gisborne generally has warm summers and mild winters.
With a reputation as the home of great food, great wine, and great beaches, Gisborne is the perfect holiday destination for many. For any travellers with an interest in Maori culture, Gisborne is a must see on your travel itinerary. The city retains a deep and evident connection with Maori culture and traditions, and has a large percentage of Maori inhabitants.
The city is sometimes known as the “Chardonnay Capital of New Zealand”, and as such, there are a number of wine trail tours to take advantage of; many of which are able to pick you up from the very doorstep of your Gisborne accommodation.
A city of many names, Gisborne is also often called “The City of Rivers”, as the centre of town is the convergence of three different rivers. There are countless activities for a traveller to Gisborne; whether it’s fine dining, wining, walks or nature reserves, all tastes are catered for, just a step away from your accommodation in Gisborne.
