Easy walk into town and a base for exploring to far North. We stayed 3 nights, did the cape in day then other coastal areas on the other days. Pool was good All small fridge and kettle and microwave in room. They have their own restaurant so no cooking facilities in rooms.

We were only in Kaitia for 1 night but our stay was very good. Glen, the manager was very nice, helpful and accommodating. The motel is older but very clean and set up very well.

Last night I stayed with a group of our international students at Orana Motor Inn. It was the perfect place for us to stay. Rooms are comfortable and clean, food in the restaurant was great and Peter, Chris and their staff are always helpful and welcoming. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Orana.

I have been to this restaurant a lot as it's often the only one open on Monday nights and they serve excellent food. Mussel fritters - yum. Chicken satay - delicious nutty. “Hereford Prime” Scotch Fillet with peppercorn sauce - excellent. Seafood - freshly cooked. All mains were presented lovely. Sometimes the main plating was too big so I ordered... More

Was a fantastic meal. We where there to celebrate a birthday. The meals where generous and beautifully cooked. The staff where very friendly. The only issue would be the wait for a menu for desert. Overall a great time was had by all in our party.

Thank Mark S
