“Fantastic Stay - Friendly Staff - very clean”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

It was sad to read some previous reviews - we stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment, which catered for everything. Immaculately presented, extremely clean and very comfortable beds. If I had left it up to my husband who read some reviews, we would not have stayed, we are both pleased we did. The staff are honest and friendly, if you want 5-star, then stay there, this is well presented, yes a little dated, but more than adequate. We would happily recommend and come back again. We travel alot, and enjoyed the atmosphere - beautiful beaches and wonderful stay. Thank you

Room Tip: Our room was straight off the main carpark - and we had no car noise, nor people talking. I imagine...

This motel needs to be bowled in a word. No money spent on it and owners must be just waiting to sell to a developer. Our room was run down, cold and am positive my sheets were not changed from last occupant! Also, our unit backed onto a carpark with lots of noise from cars and people :(

Direct on the beach, we where able to watch a magnifficient sunrise over the water from our bed. This is a fantastic location, leave the room, walk just 50m and have a swim in the ocean. (if it`s not too cold for you)

The self-contained studio is spacy and has everything you need, even though the enterior and the bathroom is a bit outdated.

The service of the manager couple is extremely helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: take the beach front rooms with a view !

2 friends and I went to get a room at this motel, the room was paid for then just as we were getting out of the car the very rude and stereotypical manager came out demanding that we leave and money will be refunded, saying that there will be no party. Even though we had just come back from waiwera and had a tiny bit of jack Daniels to enjoy a few drinks, not a party, he was then very rude again by intimidating us and not being understanding at all. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone with the way he treated customers. His wife seemed very embarrassed by the ordeal, we were shocked and felt disrespected. Never again

We stayed here for one night only, needing to attend a function in Orewa. This motel is somewhat dated but would probably be the cleanest place I have ever stayed in! For such a short stay we chose a low cost room which was small and tucked away at the rear of the other buildings, but quiet and adequate, with very comfortable bed. Lots of hot water in the shower! Management were very welcoming. This property is situated quite close to, but not right next to, the shopping centre, and is situated right on the beach, with a lovely lawn area fronting the beach. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

You can not beat the location of this hotel right on the beach, it is old & tired but the friendly owner is upfront about this and it is priced accordingly. If you like your mod cons, fancy surroundings and everything to be up to date this is not the place for you, but if you just want a comfortable bed, basic but clean in gorgeous beachfront surroundings at a great price then this place is perfect. There are play areas for the kids, shade and sunny areas with picnic tables and the magnificent beach, shops and supermarkets are close. We had a beachfront unit, husband watched cricket while I enjoyed the beach and view .

Room Tip: If certain mod-cons are important to you such as a hair dryer bring your own or check with the owner...

Lovely beachfront location about 5mins walk to shops and orewa centre. My first stay was in a beachfront apartment which was very noisy. The owners were very helpful but noise from the next apartment ruined my sleep.
The owners actually contacted me and offered me a free stay in a self contained unit. This was a 2 bedroom lockwood house a few paces back from the beach. Lovely and spacious with everything you need and even a little playground for the kids. Perfect for families. Quiet and peaceful. Loved it.

Room Tip: Sacrifice the ocean view and opt for a self contained unit for the best nights sleep.
