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.

I had a pleasure staying at this motel for 2 nights and I sure pick the best motel in town. This motel and only motel in town is right on the beach. I had a beach side unit and it was great. The unit does need doing up but it is very tidy and comfortable. The owners are very friendly.... More

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

Beautiful Orewa beach is just steps away from this motel with shops and restaurants an easy 10 minute walk away. Our room was old and could do with an update, however it was clean and comfortable. My son just loved the play area and of course the beach.

It's not a five star property and does not pretend to be ... we just wanted a great location at a great price and as long as the room was clean it did... More

We telephoned from Helensville and we were told that a unit was available and that they would wait for us to arrive. It was approx 7pm when we arrived and... More

We stayed overnight at Edgewater motel after our arrival in Auckland to recover from a long flight before driving on to Paihia, We chose this property because of its beach front feature. Orewa beach was only a few steps away from our one bedroom off beach unit. We did not use our rental car to buy supplies at New World... More
