My first impression of this place was pretty good.. I recieved a text from them which I replied to and had a friendly response. Upon arrival, still everything was friendly. We got our room keys, went and unpacked the car and as it was late wanted to get the kids some tea. The book said that last orders for dinner...

Older place that can do with a facelift, prices a bit high, restaurant closed when should have been open so we had to take the kids elsewhere which wasn't very convenient, man at reception didn't really care about that which is poor service at best

Although the guy on reception was very helpful, the rest of the place didn't live up to much. Restaurant - closed, bar - closed, spa which is really a hot tub - closed. Disgustingly dirty. I stayed one night and was glad I didn't need to stay there any longer. I got out of there as soon as I could...

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...

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...
