“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Lovely food, with a separate bar to have pre dinner drinks and relax and catch up before dinner. Portions of food are very generous as is the selection on the menu. Decor is dated but ambience is still there. Well worth a visit.

“Excellent Food with large portions.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

The meal we had at the Orana was equivalent to that of a top class restaurant. The chef is to be commended. The portions were large and we can recommend the crumbed squid and scallops. Also the lamb shank with vegetable parcels. Even though they were fully booked Peter the owner squeezed us in early. Donna Perth Western Australia

“70s time Warp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

Even the 70s decor of the Restaurant can't put you off you dinner at Orana Motor Inn. The food and service is just brilliant. Nice work

“Scallops - yum with a salad that tasted great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Wasn't sure about the crumbed scallops - but there were good! Settled on some salad that full of flavour and accompanied by potatoes cooked in coconut milk and a filo vegetable parcel. Unexpected imagination and taste. Prices getting up there. Good wine selection, reasonably priced - and the Northland sauvignon was very good. Service was helpful and prompt.

“Oasis in a crisis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

After experiencing a rather awful experience at another hotel I desperately needed somewhere else to stay at short notice. I called Orana and advised them of what had happened and they gave me their best room and charged less than the standard rate for it.
Their service is by far second to none. I was so impressed at the high level of customer service that they did not have to provide. The room was so clean and modern. The bed and pillows were really comfortable.
I need to go to Kaitaia on a regular basis for business and Orana, you definitely get my custom in the future!
