One of my best stop in New Zeland. I had first a warm welcome by the owner and his wife. The room was simply awesome, a kind of little house surrounded by trees; absolutely comfortable and clean. If looking for a peaceful and relaxing environment, that's the perfect place. Absolutely recommended.

This was the perfect place to end our long journey in New Zealand. We were a bit travel weary by the time we arrived in Keri Keri, but the Colonial House provided us with everything we needed to relax and refresh before returning home. Our space felt like a quiet, secluded cottage away from it all, yet we were minutes... More

Not bad, nice and quiet with a pool and nice garden surrounds. A short walk to town and friendly staff. The room has all kitchen facilities, awesome shower and small but nice deck facing the sun. We had a very nice relaxing time here.

We are a family with a young kid. We had a wonderful stay in the motel for a week last summer. The hosts Andrea and Alan were a sweet couple who welcomed us with home baked cookies and house wine. They were also very helpful explaining the attractions in and near Kerikeri. I had asked for a humidifier when booking... More

Nice clean accommodation and friendly hosts. Three of us ventured north to play golf at kuari cliffs. All apartments are separate with car port. Not really easy walking to town however great restaurant next door. Has nice clean pool and served its purpose well

We arrived reasonably late one evening, after many non vacancies, to find this wonderfully tucked away Motel. The hosts accommodated us with a discounted (internet price) spa room, and treated us with complimentary wine and home made easter cookies. The room was wonderful, the carpet, bathroom and kitchenware was new, the spa bath was great after a long drive, the... More

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.
