Beautiful grounds, wonderful swimming pool and charming hosts. The location is a short walk from wonderful restaurants, the Stonehouse and many other attractions. Good Internet, clean rooms and a cute kitchen if you would rather eat in. Andrea and Alan, the owners are extremely sweet and helpful. We were sad to leave.

We were fortunate enough to pick the Colonial House Motel this weekend, the couple were just amazing to deal with. Being from Auckland we did not arrive till very late Friday night, they were so accommodating and waited for our arrival, couldnt ask for better hosts. The room was spacious and perfect for just the two of us, immaculate and... More

The location is good for visiting the Stonehouse and also the nearby Pear Tree restaurant, both within easy walking distance. The welcome from the South African owner could not have been better, made more so by the offer of a drink & homemade cake. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The pool was good and clean despite a... More

Andrea and Alan made us very welcome and were extremely helpful with planning our stay in the Bay of Islands. We had a spacious 1 bed apartment with good facilities, located only a short walk from the Stone Cottage. Highly recommended.

We have been staying at this lovely motel for more than three years now on business. Alan and Andrea are the perfect, friendly hosts and always go the extra mile with complimentary baking, chocolates & wine. The units sit in amongst lovely gardens with the song of Tui in the background. We have also sat on the deck in summer... More

A really pleasant place to stay. The recently re-decorated rooms are extremely well presented and set in attractive gardens. Quiet and peaceful and yet close to local attractions, the shopping centre and good quality restaurants. The owners are extremely helpful and guests are greeted with home baked cookies and a glass of wine on arrival.We will be definitely be back... More

Thanks Andrea and Alan for a very nice stay in Kerikeri! Plenty of good advice, welcome biscuits and a comfortable unit with new bathroom and carpet. Spotless clean. Everything at walking distance or a two-minute car trip.

We had a wonderful time at this motel. We loved the warm and personalised treatment, the garden setting and facilities. We used the pool and BBQ regularly and couldn’t be happier with both although the water in the pool was always cold. Our room was modern and tastefully decorated. The TV had Sky but no Sky movies. However, that wasn't... More

A really nice place to stay. The rooms are tastefully decorated and well furnished. They are set in attractive subtropical gardens, which gives a great feel to the place. The owners have clearly worked hard to make this a pleasant environment for guests. Set on the edge of town, it's only a short walk to the Stone Store and the... More

Large rooms. Very clean. Family unit was very spacious for a family of five. Service was second to none. Very helpful staff. Family unit was newly renovated and had everything you need to spend a few days in comfort.
