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

It was sad to read some previous reviews - we stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment, which catered for everything. Immaculately presented, extremely clean and very comfortable beds. If I had left it up to my husband who read some reviews, we would not have stayed, we are both pleased we did. The staff are honest and friendly, if you want... More

This motel needs to be bowled in a word. No money spent on it and owners must be just waiting to sell to a developer. Our room was run down, cold and am positive my sheets were not changed from last occupant! Also, our unit backed onto a carpark with lots of noise from cars and people :(

Direct on the beach, we where able to watch a magnifficient sunrise over the water from our bed. This is a fantastic location, leave the room, walk just 50m and have a swim in the ocean. (if it`s not too cold for you) The self-contained studio is spacy and has everything you need, even though the enterior and the bathroom... More
