Thank you very much for your review folks and have posted images of the newly painted and decorated reception area and owners residence. Big changes ! The Pool area is about to be upgraded with Palm trees and delicious subtropical gardens. We will post some new images as we get them. Take care and thanks again. Bill and Paula More

Warm welcome. Very clean and tidy. One bedroom unit has all you need for a long weekend away, excellent size for small family. Good little play area for kids. Close to town by easy walk. Will definitely stay again when in Kerikeri. Thanks Abilene.

I didn't use the pool (partly... More

New owners are very friendly and have made quite a few improvements since taking over just before Christmas. The room was very clean and most kitchen bits were New. The owners are working hard to update the rooms. The motel is within walking distance of the shops and even though it is on a main road it is very quiet.... More
