“A Very Special Holiday Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Two very keen golfers enjoyed a fantastic stay at the Woodlands Motel. It is ideally located near the centre of town, very good value and a great base to enjoy the areas golf courses and other attractions. The hospitality of Tony, Wendi and all the staff was well beyond our expectations and we were made to feel very much at home. Easily the best motel experience I have encountered, full of surprises and highly recommended if visiting Kerikeri. Dave

Our annual holiday wouldn't be complete without including a visit to Tony & Wendi at Woodlands Motel in Kerikeri. They are outstanding hosts with the perfect mix of hospitality and fun, the food is second to none and the venue is relaxing, caters for all ages and is a beautiful 'woodland' setting. We really love everything about it and will keep returning to see the lovely Wendi and Tony every Kerikeri holiday.

My partner and i have just spent 2 nights in this motel and really it is an excellent one . The bedroom was spacious, perfectly well equiped and clean . Nothing missed to prepare a meal .
We really enjoyed it . What more could we expect than that .. And also the kindness of Wendi to explain us where to go and what to see !
A great motel in a lovely garden .

Room Tip: The bedroom number 6 is very well situated near the forest so with a minimum of traffic.

We recently had the pleasure of experiencing a week of the most outstanding hospitality of Tony & Wendi and staff at Woodlands in Kerikeri. This hidden gem was a great place for our large group with a wonderful spacious outdoor entertaining area where we could enjoy our get togethers for meals, drinks and meetings. The rooms were all well presented and our super king size bed was so comfy, I had the most wonderful sleeps each night. It was great having such a lovely bush setting so close to the CBD. Thanks Tony & Wendi for all your efforts in making our week such a memorable and enjoyable one. Will definately see you again.

My mate Dave and I went up to Kerikeri for a 3 day golfing weekend and the Woodlands motel was a Golfers paradise, Wendi and Tony were absolutely excellent Hosts two of the loveliest people that I have met, she cooked us excellent meals and they introduced us to some hard case and neat people and boy did we have a great time.. Golf during the day, party/BBQ/lots of Laughs at night, I will definitely be recommending this place to my family and friends, in fact we're taking our wives back with us next time to meet them....."nothing was a problem" SO, if you're planning a boys or girls weekend go stay at Woodlands Motel and meet some unique Kiwis. Thank you Wendi and Tony and friends for a lovely time.

Room Tip: Get the good ones before you mates!!!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at Woodlands, Wendy and Tony made us feel very welcome. This is a lovely property set off the road and caters for just about everyone. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean, a most enjoyable few days.

I stayed for one night one a business trip after reading good reviews.

Thoroughly recommend Woodlands - the owners went out of their way to make it a good stay. They picked me up from the airport when the shuttle didn't arrive, cooked me dinner despite arriving late, and gave me a lift into town the next day (very near town anyway but it was pouring). The room was excellent and I will definitely stay there when I am in Kerikeri next.
