Wonderful people with outstanding clean rooms, set in well maintained gardens. Carl's photography on the walls give this place a personal touch. Ask to see his studio, it's well worth the visit! Can't wait to come back and stay.

Thanks so much for your heart warming review. It's lovely to see people appreciating the photographs as it's a real passion of mine. Great that you enjoyed the studio/workshop too, we hope to have a gallery up and running in the not too distant future to house our creations along with showcasing some local artists too which we are very...

My boyfriend and I stayed there for the Easter break in the Deluxe room with a spa. Right from the get go, the couple who run the place were really wonderful, polite and helpful. They gave us a beer on arrival. The apartment was spotless and looked out into a private garden. We were greeted by fantails all over the... More

Stayed here one night 1st April. My partner had eye surgery in Whangarei and a follow up appointment in Kerikeri next morning. I was looking for somewhere comfortable and quiet off the main road and that is exactly what we got. Warm friendly welcome with complimentary drink. Comfortable well appointed unit (number 1) with private outdoor patio area. Good value... More

We came back to Kauri Park for our second stay. It's a great place - with comfortable rooms, really clean and well set out, lovely gardens with lots of room for kids to run around. Each room has an outside table so you can relax in peace and look at the gardens. It is a little bit out of town... More

Outstanding accommodation! Great location close to everything, park like grounds with private patio, friendly and helpful hosts and staff, a welcoming complimentary drink after a hot day's travel and the cleanest rooms I have seen. Absolutely loved it and we'll done to the new owners.

A nice place to stay. The motel is next to the chocolate factory. Also, there is a nice Saturday market just across the road. The room was really nice with a new bathroom. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend to stay!

A lovely place to stay. I arrived earlier than my wife who was driving up from Hamilton, and was shown excellent hospitality and really enjoyed just chilling out after a busy few days. The scenery and surrounds are idyllic, and the outdoor patio areas off each room are perfect for a quiet and contemplative beverage! I recommend visiting the Packhouse... More

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. We also love the Packhouse Market across the road, very handy for fresh, locally grown veggies and for listening to some cool live music. Sorry that you struggled with the heat during your stay, we do have large fans available for our guests upon request. Thanks for taking the time to give such... More

Great job by the staff making us feel welcomed with a beer and wine after a long drive up. Beautiful grounds to have a quick stroll around. A great room overall, especially for the price we paid. Would love to come stay again for longer.
