I'm writing this review from room 14 in a low cost unit. It's Sunday night in Kerikeri and it doesn't seem like there's a whole lot else to do. Besides, it's darned cold outside. The room is spotlessly clean. It's quite old......indeed I wouldn't be surprised if it was built in the 1960s but it's in better shape than much... More

Thank you Bob, what a fantastic review and that is exactly what Woodlands is all about - we are not the modern day hotel. We do pride ourselves on our rooms & surroundings, the choice of either the Tourist Rooms with the shared facilities or the Executive Studios and hope that our guests feel at home and enjoy their stay...

My friend and I only stayed for one night. But with the price we paid, this place really exceed our expectation. When I first visited it's website, I thought that it's a dodgy looking place. But, alas! In reality, it took my breath away! Lovely place indeed... 5minutes away from the town and for a budget accommodation, really worth it!

We were charged 79NZD for the night and for a room that provided a pleasant slumber. The location is also convenient, as it is within the vicinity of the main town; which means it was very close to the local supermarket and fast food chains. Additionally, the premises was beautifully set. Please take into account though, for the price we... More

Wow! Relaxation, Moment we stepped up to the desk to register, the owners were both there, big giant smiles welcoming us to Woodlands. My associate and I stayed in the shared accommodation.

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.
