Wow such an amazing crew at the Orana, from the manager to the waitresses. The manager is quite cheeky yet very welcoming. The girls in the restaurant were polite, and friendly. One spoke Maori to another customer it was beautiful to see. This is the same waitress who gave kids at another table a box of toys, and helped me... More

Rooms were clean, tidy, well presented, warm and bed was comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was buffet, and as usual the food and service from Peter and his team exceeded our expectations....

We booked a courtyard room for myself, my partner and her adult sister. We were impressed that we were given two adjoining rooms, which was good from a privacy perspective - though the glass sliding doors on to the courtyard do make you very conscious of closing the curtains properly. The room with the queen bed had very little spare... More

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.

I stayed here for one night recently. The good reviews were confirmed. Great friendy service from beginning to end. The room was comfortable and I slept very well. I had a delicious breakfast. 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
