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.

A quaint wee restaurant which is an older style in terms of decor etc. But what it may have 'lacked' in terms of modern decor (according to some people), it absolutely made up for with food and service! Partner had the Beef & Reef (steak)... which was huge! It was cooked beautifully & he still talks about it several weeks later! I had the Calamari which was delicious... especially the salad bed... which was divine! Full marks to the team who were friendly, warm, accommodating & efficient.

Went in for a Christmas work dinner & the staff were lovely & accommodating! The food was absolutely delicious, huge portions & fairly priced! I couldn’t finish my meal so got the rest to take home and gave it to my partner who also thought it was delicious. Will definitely be going back again time & time again.

The staff are really friendly and make the dining experience. The menu is not cluttered and gives a good selection. Occasionally a buffet is offered and is good value. the bar offers a selection of drinks with a broad wine selection. i have had the pleasure of sharing the venue with friends whom raved. If staying over an excellent cooked breakfast is available.

Disappointed with the stay here. Cobwebs, rusty fridge, soap holder moves, moving tap over sink, dirty floor in bathroom, rotten board around shower, hard bed, ironing table cover has holes in the fabric, wooden tray on fridge needs to be replaced. All these conditions needs to be looked at. We cancelled the 2nd night due to the conditions.

Great food taste and presentation, but far too big portions, no one in our group could finish the meal

Service from staff was very pleasant how ever we found the decor dated, the room was very stuffy no air flow circulation so there was a nasty smell. The only reason we stayed was we heard the food was really good and we weren't disappointed. This establishment has an excellent chief .

Country cooking with flair! Traditional menus with modern twist. You won't leave hungry. Have eaten most things on the menu and loved them all. Liked the fact you could also have local wines..and very well priced ones

We celebrated my daughter’s 18 th birthday with a dinner out with 15 of us. We all ordered different things. I had the seafood trio it was huge and delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals. By the way have the vegetables as a side dish they are amazing. Really great service, lovely tasty fresh food. Highly recommend!!;)

I have completely forgotten to review this place. When we turned up at the Orana Motor Inn, all I can say is do not let looks deceive you. We checked in easily and the gentlemen at the receptionist told us that the chef in the restaurant was excellent. We decided to dine there that evening and the food was out of this world. Would definitely recommend if you are staying around that area. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Thankyou.

My visit here with my Mum was everything we needed and more, we stayed two nights to enjoy the day trip to Cape Reinga, on arrival Peter was very informative on helping us organise this trip for the next day. We were generously given a room that was probably once two small rooms so we each had a bathroom which I was not expecting! The single bed room had the aircon and bigger bed room had a fan, we were visiting in January but it wasn't hot like it can get in Kaitaia. The reviews suggested the food here was great and boy, they're not wrong, was not disappointed! We wished we ate here both nights. Room was serviced nicely while we were out and rooms are dark and reasonably quiet. I absolutely recommend staying at the Orana for two nights to enjoy a visit to Cape Reinga, it's a big day so don't be in a hurry to leave!

I had to spend a night in Kaitaia and phoned through to book. Very prompt in answering and checking availability. The unit was comfortable and well equipped. I decided to eat in the restaurant and was amazed at the size of the meals. The chef did a brilliant job. Breakfast is available in various forms to suit all tastes. The Orana is a well established motor inn with good parking. Easy to walk into town. Handy for both coasts and for the trip to Cape Reinga. No need to go to Paihia for a coach trip to the Cape. Coaches call at the motor inn to pick up for the Cape. Management do a good job and staff are only too pleased to help. I thoroughly recommend this establishment.
