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.

Thank you for your lovely review and that you enjoyed our home away from your home, the environment here creates that atmosphere in amongst all the bush. And also your comments on the home cooking. Wendi More

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...

We stood 6 weeks in the Motel and we loved it because it fells like a second family. The kitchen/lounge was pretty nice and clean. We loved it to spend time in the hot pool after work. It's so close to the city and New World. Wendy & Tony are so sweet and friendly. Enjoy Woodlands and have a awesome... More

Our stay at Woodlands was amazing, where do I start? Well it would have to be with the outstanding warm and friendly hospitality. Thank you from Tony and Wendi. Although the property is inviting, clean, well-equipped and clearly recently upgraded the icing on the cake is how comfortable we were made to feel. The food was absolutely delicious and the...

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.
