Highly rate this motel. We stayed in the shared accommodation. The room, bathrooms and kitchen were all spotless. Grounds are lovely as is the spa, and pool. The price was very reasonable. The service was fantastic. Staff are super friendly and obliging. Within easy walking distance into town. We will definitely be back again.

We chose this place for its proximity to the local golf course (5 minutes away) and the reviews on TripAdvisor were very good. First impressions are a little concerning but soon dispelled by Wendi and Tony who are excellent hosts and have thought of everything. There are even electric blankets on the beds for winter nights. We had an executive... More

Thank you Sarah for you lovely review and yes certainly a great location for the golf course and just a quick walk up the driveway into town. Woodlands is certainly a different looking place, not the usual run of the mill motel, we say "Rustic", homely and comfortable and love making guests feel like that they are at home. Take... More

Stayed for just the one night February 2015 (my wife & I) - family visit - and really enjoyed the stay. Facilities are excellent and the room was great with everything we needed, really nice outlook complete with balcony. Very friendly 'customer centric' staff. A nice place to stay and close to the town centre.

stayed 2 nights in Feb 2015. The place is simple, comfortable, clean. The amenities (bbq, pool, hot tub) are a real plus especially considering there is a nice grocery right down the street where you can buy fresh food for the bbq. The management was extremely gracious and helpful with recommendations, etc. Thus place has good access to hikes in... More

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.
