“Good Situation and Value”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Very friendly manager, Richard who gave us a lovely room with a view of the beach just across the road. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the bed was great.
Very clean and all utensils in working order. The bathroom had a large spa bath. Easy walk to village and bars and restaurants. Excellent value.

Stayed 2 nights while visiting the area, quite spacious 1 bedroom unit, with single divan in lounge,comfortable chairs to seat on (no lumpy bed settee).

Kitchen with 2 element cook top, clean utensils, and good selection of dishes, plenty of hot water.

Walking distance to shops and supermarket and right across the road from Orewa Surf club, great to view the beach and have a drink/ meal.

Certainly recommend Beachcomber and will stay again

Stayed at beachcomber orewa this week and was very impressed with owner Richard. Very down to earth and friendly. Beach just across the road and restaurants within walking distance. Good place to stay with children. Thanks Richard.

We stayed at the Beachcomber over the last weekend and we were very impressed

The accommodation was clean and tidy, very comfortable for a family. The owner Richard was extremely friendly and helpful bringing in an extra bed when we had an extra body stay one night.

Location is great close to the beach and walking distance to the shops as well

We will be back for our next stay in Orewa :)

This is the closest motel to Snowplanet, only 10 minutes drive. It suited my needs perfectly. Very friendly hosts with a very warm welcome. Spacious unit, very clean and well appointed. Spa bath was an extra treat.

On our way south, Orewa seemed a good point to break our journey. However Motel owners in Orewa seem to have odd, expensive, views of what a room should cost midweek in the off season. Until we tried the Beachcomber that is. Very reasonable rates. We had a very comforable studio room which was clean and spacious. Possibly in need of an update but that shouldn't be a deterrant. Very helpful advice from Richard about where to eat in town, which is just 5 minutes walk away. Would recommend to anyone needing a place for a stopover.

Room Tip: The main road can be busy so a room away from the front might be preferable

On our way up to the top of the north island and needed to stay enroute. What a great decision we made to stop at the Beachcomber. Location was great, just opposite the beach, withn easy walking distance of the shops. The unit was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Hosts were so friendly. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay there again.
