We always enjoy staying here - clean and peaceful with comfortable beds. The showers and vanities could do with an update - but they work well and always clean with plenty of hot water for showers. A great place to relax and watch the bird life in the surrounding trees.

We hosted our AGM at Woodlands over the weekend of 13-15th of June 2014 and the hospitality, venue, accommodation and food at this establishment could not be faulted. A really cosy atmosphere, warm fire, friendly and helpful staff, nice room - I couldn't recommend this more highly - Jan MacPherson organiser 2014 NZ Avicultural Society AGM

Our family gathered together at Woodlands in Kerikeri last weekend. The rooms were well maintained and very comfortable. We stayed in the tourist flats with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities which were well stocked, clean and very practical. We used the conference area and it was well suited to our gathering. Wendi, Tony and their staff provided a friendly calm... More

A group of 18 of us from an Auckland walking club stayed here for 3 nights at Easter. Wendi and Tony were amazingly helpful, friendly and welcoming hosts. The pool area was ideal for a big group BBQ and there was also plenty of indoor space for "happy hour". They loaned us a data projector for an evening presentation we... More

This is the last motel before driving back to Auckland to catch up with relatives before travelling onto Malaysia. The welcome from Tony and Wendy was the warmest you could wish for after a long drive north to see the Bay, other hosts we have come across could well learn from these two. Rooms were very clean, well equipped, quiet... More

We were unable to get accommodation on the night we had booked through Wotif due to a double up when we booked, so we were offered a studio on a different night free of charge. This place exceeded our expectations, it is so central yet you feel as though you a away from it all. The surrounding trees and plantings... More

My sister and I came to NZ to celebrate her 65th birthday. We'd only planned on spending one night here but were so charmed by both the hosts and the location that we added a night. Most of the guests spent several nights, many were returnees. The location is easy to find, really important to non-Kiwis. It is spotless, quiet,... More

We stayed three nights here with friends from Auckland. Excellent rooms and location. Toni and Wendy couldn't have been more helpful. This was my first experience of New Zealand motels and one of the best.

We chose this venue because it looked a bit alternative and offered good value. We were not disappointed.

This is a gorgeous little motel. Our room and all the facilities were spotlessly clean and the communal kitchen was very well equipped. The pool was clean and quiet and the hot tub very welcome!
