Overall a pleasant stay. Quiet location right next to the beach & a easy walk into Orewa. Enjoyed the spa bath in the room. House keeping was attentive. However for what you pay, a bit of sprucing up would be good. (ie: bathroom door was rotting with the wood coming away at the bottom, black mould stains on ceiling)

Our long weekend at the Waves Motel
We just spent 3 nights at Waves. We had a few niggles. We have stayed there many times over the years and feel it's feeling more and more tired. Some maintenance is needed such as a dangerous missing tile on the steps, the bathroom floor needs regrouting, mould behind the kitchen faucet, the bathroom rubbish bin was rusty, lack of kitchen utensils for cooking, and the dinning chairs needed cleaning. On the plus side it's great to be close to the beach and the one bedroom unit is spacious.
