Very hospitable and accommodating. We checked in late and it seemed to be no problem at all. Our rooms had been well prepared. They were spotless and well catered. Sky TV. We had adjoining rooms, each fully self contained. Fridge, coffee/tea making facilities, bathroom and heatpump. Restaurant on site. They allow dogs to stay also!! There is a separate secure... More

Staying for 1 day or more, always reliable service. Very positive and happy management. Clean rooms with all the facilities. Very central and close to CBD and still very quiet. Fast breakfast service and very relaxing dinner hall.

An old motel as they all are in this town but I would imagine this would be one of the busiest, The rooms show their age but work ok and the choice is limited, however where Orana comes into its own is the dining room, an experience worth the trip alone, excellent service and great monstrous meals, nothing is too...

Very basic, very old and needs refurbishing but it was OK for the night. We used the Orana Motor Inn as a stop over to visit Cape Rienga and the Ninety Mile Beach. Although a microwave & fridge were provided, there were minimal dishes/cutlery provided as we normally self cater for our breakfasts. The gentleman at the front desk was... More

The motor inn is clean and the bed was comfortable. The furniture is quite dated and well used. As other comments say - rooms at the back are quieter and the rooms on the top floor have breeze as both back and back balcony doors open. The Gentleman at the front desk was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The Sand Safari... More

We chose this property mainly for its restaurant. We were a little surprised that the room and facilities were quite dated. Although a microwave & fridge were provided, no dishes/cutlery were provided as we generally like to self cater for breakfasts. The layout of the toilet & shower areas were also unusual and overdue for renovation, although everything worked as... More

The room was quite close to the restaurant, so there was noise until a little later than we would have liked. It was clean and modern. Just like on the photos. What you see is what you get. The gentleman at reception was helpful in advising us on getting to 90-mile beach and seeing the sand dunes.

Comfortable and clean enough, but in dire need of a facelift. The bare light fixture in the bathroom says it all. I would suggest that there is better value for money at other Kaitaia hotels/motels. Now just a curiosity item. Why are there no window screens in NZ? It is not like there are no bugs.
