“Excellent Food & Warm, helpful Welcome”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

Room was perfectly adequate for our one night stay with all the amenities you needed including fridge, microwave etc. Clean and tidy. What really sold it was the fabulous food and the really warm welcome and helpfulness of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Was recommended to us and would happily recommend to others.

Decent sized room, however a little dated. Which is the theme throughout the motel. Really needs to be brought into 2012.

Rooms have basic home brand appliances which are cheap and weren't the greatest.

For price of the room and having stated at many other motels, I would suggest staying elsewhere. However I'm advised it the pick of the bunch in Kaitaia.

We stayed two nights, wished we had seen the rooms first before booking. Have never stayed in anything so tiny before in our lives (locally or overseas). Just a bed with a TV at the foot of it and a desk (it was more cramped than our caravan)! We felt like backpackers. The heating was commical, the old fashioned two bars mounted on the wall. The Inn does have it's own restuarant though and we couldn't fault the food. The staff were extremely helpful and more than made up for the accommodation but I wouldn't stay there again becuase it certainly was not value for money when compared to other places we stayed at throughout the Bay of Islands. The rooms really need to be modernized to make up for the lack of atmosphere.

Clean, welcoming, friendly staff. Thanks to Peter for the covered area for the motorbikes and advice of calling into Monganui the next day.
Breakfast was excellent and room was big, spacious and clean.
Only improvement could have been an illuminated sign with hotel name on; arriving after dark took a couple of goes to find the place that's all.

We stayed here. based on reviews from Tripadvisor. While I can't fault the friendly staff, the accommodation was very disappointing. The family suite we booked was tiny and didnot even have a kitchen sink or bench to prepare food.There was no plates/cutlery either. There was no couch/sofa to sit on, which was also disappointing given we booked a larger suite. It was also pricey, given the poor standard of accommodation

Have stayed here twice now, first time with my 10 year old and this time by myself. Both times that staff have been very welcoming and friendly. The motel itself has all the basics and they are done well! This is a very comfortable location to base yourself in Kaitaia.
Had a great nights sleep despite the awesome thinderstorm going on outside!

Room Tip: They have some great room setups for families

I was at Orana for 2 nights and found it to be excellent. Chris Ai8ken made my stay very personal with excellent service in the accomodation and restaurant. No hesitation to recommend this fine clean and well located motel.

Room Tip: up stairs with a fine deck.
