The historic Jolly Stockman reopened in 2015. The welcoming Jolly Stockman team serves an international menu with fresh, local ingredients and offers comfortable accommodation.

As you'd guess from the huge Motu Trails and New Zealand Cycle Trail logos on the roof, the Jolly Stockman is cyclist-friendly! So, if you're planning a ride on the Rere Falls Trail or you're keen to explore Gisborne's great riding options, the Jolly is a must-stop to add into your itinerary.
