“Comfortable and Clean”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The motel itself is quite basic with a double bed, kitchen facilities and bathroom. It is a short drive to the city centre, about 1km away.

I stayed for three days and on the first night it was very windy which made it difficult to sleep. Somehow the door between the bathroom and bedroom rattled in the wind even though it was an internal door and all windows and external doors were closed. This also was a bit annoying.

The free Wi-Fi was a bonus and was very good.

Overall I had a good experience. I have heard that the Loredo is one of the better motels in Kaitaia and this is why I had decided to stay here.

We stayed here for three nights and it was basic but nice. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The place was very tidy and clean and the room was a decent size. Motel is located on the edge of town but still within walking distance with a supermarket just up the road. A nice stay for a cheapie motel.

Only just seen a couple of recent reviews that were critical. This was not our experience and we spent 3 nights . I'd rate this the best motel we stayed in in NZ. Very comfortable accomodation, quiet location on the north of the town and not far from a large supermarket and fruit/veg store (further up the road away from the centre). (No smells - we weren't interested in swimming pools). The owners were very friendly and helpful. It made a perfect base for exploring the northern tip, and Kaitaia is a more interesting place than the adjacent Ahipara and Shipwreck Bay zones which are largely holiday homes - though you are at the bottom of 90 mile beach.
Perhaps the only problem may be that the owners are looking to retire and sell. Hopefully whoever takes over will keep it as welcoming as we found it.

As if the smell alone wasn't offensive enough, try the pool. Sand littered the bottom of the pool and one sketchy lounge chair graced the pool deck, along with a varuois variety of plastic chairs of course. I booked online and prepaid. Sometimes you win at this game (sight unseen) and sometimes you don't.

Room Tip: It probably won't matter.

I can only rate The Loredo as average. While it was clean and tidy, there weren't any features that stood out or would want me to stay there again. It was reasonably quiet and as a female travelling alone for work, I did feel reasonably safe.
