Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our group of 30 had the entire motel booked for 2 nights. We had a very friendly welcome on our arrival and with being Sunday night the cafe was normally closed. They offered to stay open for us so we could enjoy a few drinks and some lovely finger food.
All of the recently renovated rooms were individually quite quirky but very tastefuly done. Everything was very clean and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. All rooms had either a kitchenette or full kitchen.
The motel is a short walk from restaurants, cafes and the local supermarkets for any supplies.
If we are ever in Orewa again I would definitely stay at the Beachcomber .

Excellent motel just across the road from the beach. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Little touches like milk in the fridge, tea and coffee in the cupboard. Owners are extremely helpful and always on hand to help if required. Although it is on a busy road we heard nothing at night and slept like logs. This is our second visit. We are from UK and highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed one night on our way back from Northland and was pleasantly surprised how nice and comfortable the room was. Staff were friendly. It has a bar and cafe at the front which was handy, we had a few drinks there, lovely couple. Very handy to walk to the restaurants, bars and shops. The beach was just across the road. Nice beach.

Been to the Beachcomber a few times and it our go to place in Orewa, very central and has off road parking.
Even with being close to the main road it is till quite considering the double glazing and block construction you don’t hear much. Only down side is the shower head needs to be replaced in the “African room”
Was great to be upgraded in this visit which was very pleasant and nice to see the owners continual effort to improve the hotel with changes and upgrades

Beware, bookings are interpreted by thier management, do not pay upfront
they will take your money, non refundable because 'they' deside what you should have, not what you book!!
they are not to be trusted, and wil lie thier way into taking your money, booking made through Booking.com
Reception could not be found behind the scaffolding and construction materials.
discusting management attitude and misleading. receptionist unable to understand computer bookings.
Recommend the Remada hotel orewa-perfect..

Checked in overnight on our way up to Ahipara.
Like the Bolton and Tauranga on the Waterfront it has been refurbished but in a baroque slightly kitschy style.
It was pretty spacious, clean and had everything you needed for a comfy stay. However there is no vanity bench as such to put anything on.
The Hibiscus Highway is busy all day and all night but there is double glazing to lessen the impact. It is quiet enough to sleep with everything closed but would not be restful during the day if you want to sit outside.
The beach is across the road and shops and restaurants are an easy stroll away.

My wife and I stayed here over the recent long weekend. We had a spa room upstairs. It was big, recently renovated and clean. The check in process was lovely with a guided tour and option of two rooms to pick from. Very close to the beach and town with lots of places to eat and drink at within a short walk. Would love to stay here again.

5/5. Prime location and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble even when I phoned after hours. Would highly recommend staying here. Excellent off street parking and the room was well appointed and clean. Situated directly across from the beach and close to cafes.

Hi Iris - thank you for your enquiry. In Orewa it is very easy to get around and there would be no need for a car. The beach is straight across the road from our facilities with shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars within a 5 minute (easy and flat) walk. We could arrange transport from the airport to Beachcomber for you if required (this would be an additional charge). Thank you from the team @ Beachcomber
