Modern style and beautiful views

The motel’s Mediterranean inspired design is complemented by the area’s large phoenix palms.  The Senator is the only motel in Gisborne where every unit enjoys uninterrupted views over Gisborne’s picturesque harbour.

Enjoy watching fishing boats unloading their catch, yachties returning from a day on the bay, and relaxed socialising at the many wharf side restaurants and bars.
