On Saturday night we attended a reunion for staff of a local business that closed down in 1978. There were nearly 50 of us and the meal and service were amazing. Although we live locally my husband and I stayed the night in a unit and it was excellent. Would highly recommend this place. Thanks to Pete and the team.

We stayed for one night at Orana. We were greeted by friendly helpful staff and clean cosy rooms. We dined in the restaurant and in all honest truth was one of the best meal I've had in a long time. 5 stars to the chef! The food was tasty and excellent portions. Very good value for money. I'd definitely recommend... More

Our price included two nights stay two breakfasts each and a guided bus tour of Ninety mile beach. The staff were great and very friendly. The meals in the restaurant were top quality.

Staying for 1 day or more, always reliable service. Very positive and happy management. Clean rooms with all the facilities. Very central and close to CBD and still very quiet. Fast breakfast service and very relaxing dinner hall.

An old motel as they all are in this town but I would imagine this would be one of the busiest, The rooms show their age but work ok and the choice is limited, however where Orana comes into its own is the dining room, an experience worth the trip alone, excellent service and great monstrous meals, nothing is too...

Very basic, very old and needs refurbishing but it was OK for the night. We used the Orana Motor Inn as a stop over to visit Cape Rienga and the Ninety Mile Beach. Although a microwave & fridge were provided, there were minimal dishes/cutlery provided as we normally self cater for our breakfasts. The gentleman at the front desk was... More

The motor inn is clean and the bed was comfortable. The furniture is quite dated and well used. As other comments say - rooms at the back are quieter and the rooms on the top floor have breeze as both back and back balcony doors open. The Gentleman at the front desk was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The Sand Safari... More

We chose this property mainly for its restaurant. We were a little surprised that the room and facilities were quite dated. Although a microwave & fridge were provided, no dishes/cutlery were provided as we generally like to self cater for breakfasts. The layout of the toilet & shower areas were also unusual and overdue for renovation, although everything worked as... More
