This motel had everything we were looking for to spend our last night in NZ. It is easily accessible, less than 90 minutes drive from Auckland airport, within walking distance to CBD with restaurants and shopping and best of all, right beside the beautiful big beach at Orewa. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a nice patio...

This Motel was our last stop before catching our flight home from Auckland. It is situated in a side road right by a beautiful beach and was a lovely place to stay. The accommodation was excellent and the reception staff where very friendly and helpful. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this Motel.

Due to a reno on my house I needed to stay on the coast for a couple of days. Booked what they had. 1 night second floor room with seprate room and spa bath . $265 per night and second night ground floor room std $160 per night. Bottom line the $160 option was way better !!

We stayed on our way up to the Bay of Islands. A great motel for an overnight stay. Clean, functional, great location, friendly and helpful staff. Perfect for a night to refresh and set you up for the next day. Would recommend.

The room was fine, bed very soft but I found it comfortable. Functional kitchenette which I thought was well stocked. Amazing water pressure in shower. We were only passing through but it was perfect for our needs.

Right behind the clean beach. Shops and restaurants a 15 min flat walk. There wasn't much in the town but fine for a short stay. Rooms were very clean and bright, bed ultra comfortable and bathroom spotless.

Pleasant room with kitchenette- ideal for preparing snacks, breakfast or simple meal. Large Countdown supermarket in centre for groceries. Motel almost on beach. Lovely walk, probably a mile, along the waters' edge and then back via the shops.

Thank Helen S
