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.

We loved this motel, right on the beach plus kids play area! The hosts were friendly and very helpful and the rooms were spotless and well supplied. 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 ended up at this Motel quite unexpectedly when our booked accommodation in Helensvillle let us down at the last minute. We were 3 couples travelling together in a van. 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

I needed a quiet weekend away and that's what I had. The managers at the Edgewater were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and very comfortable and I so enjoyed hearing the waves crashing just a few metres away. Awesome location! Close to shops and right on the beach! Would definitely stay again and would recommend the Edgewater... More

This motel is an old property, but is one of the most spotless we have ever stayed at. It has more of the feel of a beach house, which is instantly relaxing. It is very well-equipped. Its quiet location meant a good night's sleep and it is only a stone's throw from the beautiful beach.

I just had to pop into trip advisor to say ... I stayed at Edgewater Motel for a few nights with my mother ... the managers Les & Val were fantastic in assisting with our needs as my mother requires special attention. Nothing was a problem and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Motel.

We stayed here for just one night. the husband and wife team were very helpful and the beach front room was just what the doctor ordered after a long drive. Although the motel was clearly past its hay-day, it was clean and good value. We would certainly stay here again.

This is an older motel BUT, the manager and his wife are just so friendly, kind and helpful and the place is spotlessly clean. It is the only motel in Orewa that is right on the beach front. You literally just walk straight down onto the sand without crossing any roads. Beautiful big lawns and Pohutukawa trees with picnic tabnles... More
