Excellent service, beautiful setting. Thank you! We were held up on SH1. Turned around and decided to stay here. Rounded off a eventful weekend! Right on beach. Clean and practical unit. Friendly and courteous reception. Will be back. We were not on holiday but it's central and with the beach s minute away this will be a good destination.

We stayed with friends last month in one of the older units closer to the road. It was fairly clean -apart from a very greasy oven tray, the unit was a little dated. It was convenient to walk along the beach in the morning. We did ask if there was a bbq we could use but unfortunately no. Friendly managers.

The property is dated & aging but functional with a fabulous location right on the beautiful, huge Orewa beach & very close to downtown. We chose an upstairs motel facing the beach with a large living room, dining area & full kitchen. Bedroom was small at the back. It suited us fine & was very quiet.

I had a studio room for one night while travelling. Its a bit dated but spotlessly clean and was only charged $130 for the night. I slept with the door open all night and listened to the sea. Awesome. Beautiful neck of the woods, and being Auckland I really was expecting a very expensive hotel night rather than one of... More

we rented the motel that fronted the beach. It was excellent and we had a lovely time there. It had all the facilities required for a family. The Internet however was very limited in its use. And only one device could be used at one time.the rooms were tastefully decorated.

Stayed here for two nights before heading to a family event, wanted somewhere away from the Auckland city and near our son. This ticked both boxes. Found the motel a bit in need of a little makeover but it was very clean, comfortable & well presented, suited our needs. Chose the two bathroom unit as we were travelling with 2... More
