I visited this wonderful place last year at the start of January and this year at the start of January on my annual trip to New Zealand. Jan the owner was incredibly welcoming compared to the previous owners. She sometimes talks to us trying to be friendly etc. Even the cleaners that are there at 10 am are kind and... More

It needs replacing.. The Sofa also needs replacing.. Springs have gone.. There was a loud noise..at one say.. then you sat lop-sided,, not good for... More

This motel is very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The motel itself is a bit dated but has everything needed for a self contained stay. It is also very close to restaurants, bars and shops. Would highly recommend as Jan is so nice and helpful

Just stayed one night at OML as a stop off to Paihia. If you love pine you'll love the place. The welcome was warm and hassle free and the parking was right outside the unit. We had a studio unit which was compact but functional. The bathroom and shower was quite small too but everything worked fine. The location couldn't... More

We arrived at 8:55pm as they were closing, having nowhere booked and the wonderful lady on the counter made us feel instantly comfortable and welcome. Truly exceptional service all around. We will make a point of returning there purely because such warm encounters are rare and should be rewarded.

Stayed for one night. Perfect location in the middle of the town but surprisingly quiet. Nice welcome. Rooms are in some kind of chalets which are rather large but divided by multiple walls making each space a bit cramped. Beds not that good, too soft. One window not closing. Not a bad night but might not choose this place again... More

The owners were very courteous and obliging - couldn't have asked for nicer people. The rooms very tidy and very very clean. The location was on main road - but couldn't hear the traffic when in room. Thank you so much

Handy Location with well equipped units that cater for family's. Plenty of room clean and well maintained with lots of little extras to make your stay comfortable. Beach and park area across the road and a large variety of shops and food outlets close by. A very obliging hostess and a real home from home.

I just spent 2 nights in Orewa Motor Lodge and was very happy at the comfort level of bed, linen, kitchen needs, being able to order breakfast, iron, bathroom needs etc - everything has been thought of for my comfort and warmth. Walkable distance for food requirements was great too. For the price I was rapt to find such a... More

Very comfortable, well equipped 2-bedroom unit for a good price. The only slightly negative thing was that it was a bit of a squash to seat four people at the table. Very friendly helpful owners who even put a railing in the toilet room for my elderly mother! Would definitely stay here again.
