we stayed because we couldnt get anywhere else. this motel has huge potential if it just upped its game a bit, everything needs a deep clean. bedding was clean, sink was clean, but utensil drawer was grubby, shower was in need of some serious cleaning, not your normal washing off the soap scum and hair type cleaning, in that respect...

And Scott who i spoke to had no remorse of what had happened... So i just want to express my disappointment. I made an inquiry about staying there for 2 nights. Shelly...

Stayed here on Saturday 30/01/2016. Easy to find. Close to shops. But run down. Gardens need attention, concrete broken on driveway, loose boards on gazebo at rear of rooms. The rooms are very basic and of concrete block construction. The rooms are also noisy and you can hear everything that happens in the adjoining rooms. The carpet was threadbare, the...

The worst 'motel' we have ever stayed in. So bad we are going to complain to the Council about it. This grotty hole is substandard and I get the feeling the owners are asking people they know to write about how good it is. Shabby dirty rooms, broken equipment and hairs everywhere. Was like the Bates Motel only worse. Stay...

Checked the feedback online before, feedback shows not really good. But we stayed there last night because we arrived late and all other motels were full. Lucky, we found the motel is different as the feedback. The staff told us that the business was sold since June and the new owner did a big change on it. Very nice place...

Arrived in Orewa late last night ,tired and made the mistake of thinking OK it's only for one night. Positives - Close to cafes and restaurants , just as well because you wouldn't want to eat in this room. Negatives - $173 - no microwave, weird light switches, thin walls( hear other occupants),appalling bathroom with mould all round shower, disgusting...
