“Great accommodation in excellent condition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We found this motel to be very quiet and in excellent condition. The owner, Kim, was charming and very helpful. It's difficult to find anything to criticise about it, as everything was so good. We would definitely book here again, if we are in the area.

Room Tip: Motel rooms 1, 2 & 3 have the best wifi

Not far from Kaitaia this motel in Awanui is highly recommended. We had a memorable stay in a well kept and very clean motel. The owner combines friendliness and efficiency in a very pleasant way. She gives plenty information of trips and restaurants and other things to do.

Very friendly host welcomed us as we were looking for a place to camp for the night before going on the 90 Mile Bus tour. While the campground was simple, Kim was so helpful and accommodating that I would not hesitate to go back. Spottlessly Clean bathrooms and showers. Access to the laundry, internet and pool. As a camper you need your own towels for the pool.

We (3 couples) arrived at Norfolk Motel just before sunset and we were met by the wonderful host Kim. We chatted like we had known her for years, but we only got her name from reviews on trip advisor. She was happy to go along and accorded us three wonderful clean rooms. Everything worked well in the rooms.
The motel is set back from the main state highway so there is very little traffic noise. Kim recommended us a restaurant to have dinner at Kiataia, that was not far way (less than 10km.)
We checked out the following day but Kim allowed us to store our luggage in one of the rooms when we drove up to the 90 Mile Beach & Cape Reinga.
It was so rewarding to know wonderful people along the way on our holiday in NZ. Keep in up Kim and all the best.

Room Tip: Room 3 that we took was good. Our friends were happy with theirs too.

What else can you say about this motel...cleanest rooms,very reasonably priced ,a proprietor that was so informative and generous(so glad we took her advice and did the cape via bus trip), which was organised for $50 from the motel.the grocery was just around the corner and a quick trip ( 10 mins) into kiataia for more choice. Brilliant stay. ,very comfortable beds and really quiet.children's play area was well maintained, laundry was spotless. What else was really lovely was a nice selection of magazines in the room to browse, the lady even sent down her really recent ones! Thank you for a lovely couple of days

Room Tip: All very good

Stayed at the Norfolk motel awanui and this was quite possibly the cleanest motel I have stayed it. The bathroom was spotless which I was impressed with. The room was just enough for is and we were very relaxed. Thank you for a very very clean room and grounds. Close to a dairy and takeaways. Not to far from kaitaia which was good for us. Thank you for the pleasant survice. Even got a discount for booking 2 rooms

From the first email I received from Kim I knew that we had chosen the right place. It makes a big difference when your Proprietress has beautiful people skills. Kim organised our Cape tour with Harrison's Tours which picked us up outside reception. This is definitely something you must do. Our room was clean, comfortable, modern and well ventilated. There was a BBQ made available and my son enjoyed swmmng in the clean motel pool (this is all he wanted to do, even on the bus tour). Towels are also provided for the pool.There is a playground across from the rooms on the grass and a large area where you can play family games. There are a couple of shops down the road and one of them had fresh seafood. The Kauri Village is also a must to see. Can't wait till we return to Norfolk Motel!

Room Tip: Corner Suite is central to everything.
