Comfortable accommodation with on-site restaurant and sports bar located centrally to the small far-northern town centre of Kaitaia. I've stayed at this establishment on a number of occasions when in New Zealand's far north on business and can recommend the well appointed rooms, ample parking and the restaurant (particularly if you like good steak).

I stay regularly at the Orana for work. Great food, comfortable accomodation, fabulous service. I accidently left my diamond ring on the bedside table and checked out only to have owner personally delivered it to my workplace. Didnt realise id left it behind. Honest, reliable, friendly. Highly recommend the Orana.

Didn't get to sample the evening meals, but heard another guest raving about the lamb shanks, which she was saying she orders everytime she stays. I will... More

We enjoyed two nights here and found the package including a Dune Rider bus trip to Cape Reinga really good value. Our room was a bit small but the great breakfast that was included was our best in NZ. The restaurant is excellent. Try the Lamb Shank with beetroot and mushrooms! EXCEPTIONAL! Thank you Peter and staff.

Upon pulling into Kaitaia early evening we walked into Orana for accommodation and was given 2 rooms at a special price well done Orana. Although it was a older Motor Inn it was very clean quite and pleasant,plus free wi fi. What a pleasant surprise the Restaurant was Fantastic service and exceptional food.

Wasn't too bad a place to stay..............a bit dated but was adequate...Kaitaia isn't the most picturesque of towns in NZ and has a bit of a backward feel to it. Most of the shops on the main street (those that are still open) are secured at night with steel doors and grating...not a good sign about the crime level!!.....room was... More

We stayed here as part of a 4 week tour of New Zealand. It was our second stop after leaving Auckland and weren’t really sure what to expect. We’d read lots of information that said that the Motels in New Zealand were really good quality and based on the Trip Advisor ratings, we booked one night. We arrived quite late... More

We stayed here for two nights. We were late arriving on the first night but the owner kept the restaurant open for us to have dinner. The room was comfortable. The onsite restaurant food and service impeccable. Hats off to Pete (and he has plenty) for a well run ship.
