Wendi and Tony made my first trip to New Zealand with a gorgeous friend sensational. The place is gorgeous and they have worked so hard to get it to what I say is "5 star". Wendi is so good at planning your trip, ensuring that we saw the best places, ate at the right restaurants and gave us fabulous entertainment.... More

Wow, thank you. I am so glad that you had a great time, even in Winter time. Northland certainly is a special place and is very easy to promote. As for enjoying Woodlands, it works both ways - easy for us when we always get fabulous guests coming to stay. Take Care, Wendi More

I spent 6 weeks at Woodlands recently and it was perfect for my stay in KeriKeri. Wendi and Tony are fantastic hosts, who truly go above and beyond for their guests. I stayed in a Tourist Cabin most of the time, and the shared kitchen and bathrooms were super clean, and very well stocked. Great value for money also! Gorgeous... More

Took the family to the top of the north island, stayed at Woodlands with Tony & Wendi for a week and it was a home away from home. Rooms, meals and service was tip top. Absolutely awesome stay, would love to come back.

Great location. Clean, modern, well furnished room. Accommodation is adjacent to woodlands. Plenty of outdoor tables/seating, so you can enjoy having a meal with others. Also has a great shared kitchen, including cooking utensils, fridge and freezer. Took advantage of the outdoor heated spa, which was very relaxing. Friendly staff. Favourite accommodation on this trip.

This hotel has lovely gardens, was clean and quiet. When we booked online we thought we got a great rate but when we checked in we discovered it was for a room with a shared bathroom. That was our bad. We managed to upgrade and the price was still fair. If booking on line read the fine print. Internet was... More

Woodland Motel. We stayed here for 4 nights and were very pleased with our choice of this motel. Our room was a reasonable size and spotlessly clean. There was a walk in shower which made it very easy for anyone who, like me, has difficulty getting in and out of baths because of bad knees. The room had a small... More
