Orana Motel was absolutely the most comfortable place we stayed during our recent road trip to Gold Coast & back! The room was spotless, the beds very very comfortable & the facilities were much appreciated. It is centrally located to great cafes & hospitality locations. We were able to walk to a local hotel for our tea & the following morning we only had to drive a few minutes to our favourite Cafe. I would highly recommend Orana Motel

This motel ticks all the boxes and is everything you could hope for. Spotlessly clean, new firm comfortable bed, oh so quiet, friendly and helpful staff, great tv and coffee and tea. Oh and did I imagine sparkling clean!!! I felt like I was in a five star hotel room not a roadside motel. The gentleman even helped my husband get the ice of the windscreen and their restaurant recommendations were spot on Thanks for a wonderful stay.

We chose this because of ratings online, it didn’t disappoint. The owners behind the counter were friendly and left us alone and didn’t bug us all the time and never impeded on our stay at all, if we bumped into them it was a friendly wave and smile and if we ever had any issues we would of told them. The best thing is the place is spotless and clean like no other accomodation. The showers are freaking awesome like standing under a waterfall it’s what ya want after a long day on the road. The beds were equiped with heated blanket and we were given fresh towels both days and free bottles of water. The internet wifi is quick and tv is great and the beds were comfy as anything. 9/10 and would stay there again, no one ever gets a 10/10 but gee they would be there if I did . The only negative I could find is the showers and Taps don’t have a thermostat or is up really high so if you have kids be careful as the showers and taps can be hot as anything but I loved the hot hot showers during winter.
