The rooms are very good value and relatively spacious. The staff were very helpful and gave excellent advice. The dinner was high class and I very much recommend any one eating there as the food would not be out of place in a much higher quality restaurant. It made up for the town as Kaitia has little else to recommend.

This place is ok for a stopover or as a base to go and explore Ninety Mile Beach. the rooms are fairly basic and tired. However, the staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome and looked after. There is not much to the town of Kaitaia; it doesn't seem set up for tourists like other places in Northland,...

This property is fairly sparce for cooking in -microwave only and no cutlery or crockery but they have restaurant on site. The room is two small rooms with two bathrooms. We liked this the most. Although the place is dated it has adequate rooms and amenities including pool & spa for your stay. The beds are comfortable, the room dark... More

Agree with other reviewers, the rooms are a bit dated and there are some odd features. We had what was essentially two old units connected together. This gave us two rooms with two showers and bathrooms - which was great. We arrived on a hot summers day and found the room pleasantly cool, and very close to the swimming pool... More

The rooms and decor are stuck in the 70's and are in need of a makeover. That said the rooms were tidy enough and I had a comfortable nights sleep.The staff are friendly and helpful but could do with a little more training. Although the dinners are expensive they are very generous and delicious. I agree with another reviewer who... More

Although the motel was a little thread bare, it was more than compensated by the quality of the breakfasts and dinners that we enjoyed. The staff were very obliging, even going down the road to retrieve a camera that one of our members had left behind. We were a group of 34. Nothing was too much trouble. Even our trip... More

The Orana do offer a' 2 night b&b with Cape trip package', if you ask for it at booking....so our mistake, and... More

Agree with other reviewers that the rooms are dated, but mine was clean and comfortable. The service is excellent, and the food (especially dinner) was really good. I was very pleasantly surprised. The free WIFI was also of a faster and better standard than many other places I have stayed at. Will definitely return.

The rooms have been updated and are now very modern and comfortable. The bathroom lino needs updating, but the shower and toilet are sparkling new! The eftpos machine was down so I got a dessert for free. The service is second to none. I am a repeat customer and highly recommend this motor inn.

The Orana Motor Inn is stuck in a Time warp, our dated furnishings, towels and bedding that need to be donated to a local shelter but you can not deny the service it is just outstanding, the dinner menu is brilliant and locality cant be beaten.
