Checked in by friendly office staff who made us feel really welcome and we're happy to recommend local eating houses. They immediately agreed to a comfortable late checkout. Nice clean and modern unit provided a comfortable stay and a very friendly checkout the next morning. Very close to local restaurants and 500m away from the local surf club where our... More

Very dated small motor lodge, adequate but could benefit from a makeover, location is excellent in this small seaside town. Beach opposite and shopping centre and lots of restaurants just a couple pot minutes away.

This was such a delight. To the casual eye this property might seem a little dated, but the delightful amenities, the serene and lush back courtyard space and all the in-room amenities you could want made it such a true delight. We loved this space so much that we changed our plans and ended up booking extra time there. Coming... More

I have been coming here for many years at least once a year and it still has that charm and that clean fresh modern touch to it. Its not dated, considering its timber interior. Top it off its situated near the shops and across from the Beach. I think it's the Best Motel in Orewa.
