Need overnight accommodation at Kerikeri, this motel served us really well. It is close to the city centre, at walking distance approx. 0.5km, at the main road of Kerikeri, so a lot of choices for dinner or lunch. We chose the room with communal bathroom and kitchen. The room was good, comfy beds, good facilities, although the TV was old... More

Woodlands Motel is a clean, old fashioned place to stay with great access to the Bay of Islands while providing a quiet retreat with all facilities on your return "home". Wonderful hosts, Wendi and Tony provided a lay back, relaxed atmosphere which was wonderful. Great place to stay and recommend it highly.

What a fine welcome and fully kitted out room in a little forest with songbirds ten minute walk from town center. BBQ, hot tub, big communal kitchen, plenty of space and Wendi was so helpful. Great value for money as well. Thanks you two.

We stayed here as a couple. We were greeted at the reception by this lovely lady who acquainted us with the facilities here. She provided us with complimentary wifi of 200mb each!!! The driveway is amazing, lined by greenery on either side. The room is situated just beyond the reception where you can park your car just in front of... More

Our 2 days at this motel was a great experience. The rooms are well appointed but the best thing in the amazing bush environment and 5 minute walk to the center of town. The host are very welcoming and helpful. Within 10 minutes after leaving they called to say I had left behind my phone charger.

Wendi and Tony made us feel right at home from the get go. Reasonable, updated, incredible forest setting - the food and atmosphere were almost better than home. We stayed two nights and had steak one night and then just Wendi's fresh salad and dessert the next - great home-cooked meals for two restaurant weary travellers.

So glad we stayed here, such a nice property. We stayed in a room with a view of the forest and it was great. We loved having a coffee each morning out on our deck - complimentary milk and coffee etc is provided. The spa and pool area was also really nice, we would like to come back in summer... More

I was very impressed with this place, it was beautifully laid out with great gardens, décor and facilities for a very reasonable price. I don't need to bother trying out other motels in Kerikeri, we will just use this one when we don't fancy camping. We stayed in a motel unit with a forest view, but the cheaper tourist rooms...
