We turned up after dark seeking a motel for the night on our way south from the Bay of Islands and heading to the Bay of Plenty the next day. The room was actually a 1 bedroom apartment with cooking equipment, clean and comfortable and well maintained, even although it is an older style motel. Richard was very helpful and friendly and gave us directions to the nearest supermarket, which was in walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms at the eastern end would get the most traffic noise.

Richard and Patrea were extremely friendly and helpful when booking the room and on arrival. The room we stayed in was huge, clean and comfortable with an amazing view and everything we needed. Great location, straight across the road from the beach and the Surf Club, short stroll to Orewa's many shops and eateries! Definately recommend and will be back!

This is a great place to stay. Richard and Patrea make you feel like family. They gave us advise on what to see and where to stay. They even called and booked us into other hotels to make sure we had a place to stay on our travels. Great people. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: This motel is just across the street from the most fantastic beach.

We stayed here on our way to North of island and loved it so much we stayed again (completely unplanned until the day before) on our way south to airport.
Units are very spacious with all facilities and very clean and well equipped.
Host was very friendly and welcoming. On first visit we had a unit on ground floor and on return visit we had one upstairs - both great but you do have a better view, and a spa bath, on the upper one.
Would really recommend this motel to anyone.

My mother was staying here and at late notice in the afternoon we called in to visit her and tried to get a room for the night too. The motel was fully booked but Richard, the manager went above and beyond the call of duty to help us. He produced a bed that wasn't being used from another unit and had it carried upstairs to Mum's unit. He sent up everything we needed and when we checked out he didn't charge us any extra for us staying there. The rooms are absolutely spotless, and tidy. Beds are comfortable, the kitchenette is well supplied and modern and from the upstairs unit there are views over Orewa beach.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have views over the beach.

I'd agree with the other reviews.I wasn't leaving Orewa for the airport till around 6pm & Richard (without my asking) offered me free use of the room till then-making my last day much more relaxing
Doubtless he was pretty confident that he wouldn't have a sudden surge of guests on a Monday,but he didn't have to do this, & I've never experienced it at any other hotel

This is a lovely & resonable priced Motel, Richard went out of his way to make our stay pleasant, the rooms are big and well appointed & the beds are comfortable, they are a little dated but very clean and tidy, there is also flowers in the rooms, nice touch.
The motel is a short walk to the shops & resturants and across the road from the beach, perfect, we would definantly go back there.
