Stayed one night. Neat and tidy ground floor room. Soft bed but comfortable. 11 am checkout great for us. Good service on arrival and exit. Very close to Orewa beach which was quite tranquil. Shops a short drive away.

We had a lovely time at Waves. We’re warmly welcomed and a clean and neat room. Comfy bed, nice bathroom. Really enjoyed our stay here. The walk down to the beachside shops was a great way to start the day.
