“Great location for The Bay of Islands”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

The Managers Diane and Rob were extremely helpful and welcoming. Our room and linen was clean and fresh. We were there for a family wedding and they couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating on the wedding day. As previously mentioned, the wood cabins do creak a lot during the night, but Rob did advise us of this.

Room Tip: The wooden cabins creak at night, so one of the newer rooms would be more comfortable.

We stayed at the KeriKeri Homestead for three nights last week. The accommodation was very comfortable, linen good and rooms clean. The Managers, Rob and Diane were very welcoming and helpful - stick with their recommendations, as they know the best way to see the sights, places to eat, etc. One word of warning though - don't have one of the 'lock wood' cabins, that creak and groan endlessly in the middle of the night.

We found this motel online and were lucky to find somewhere that could take us, at relatively short notice, in the Christmas/new year holiday period, for a reasonable price. What a find! They were super-flexible when we needed to change the dates of our stay. The deluxe studio room was very clean and comfortable and fresh. The staff were friendly and helpful. The free washing machine was appreciated. The location was very handy to everything in Kerikeri, but it was still quiet. But wait, there's more....the pool! DIVINE! Warm and new and perfect for a family with a young(ish) child. And we loved the spa too. Thanks so much, we would definitely stay here again!

When I arrived I received a warm welcome from Rob... When I got to our room, I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and comfortable the room was. They are very clean, modern and I loved how you are walking distance to all the shops. Diane was lovely as well, I would recommend anyone to stay here. This Motel has better rooms than some of the hotels in Sydney! Will definitely return on my next visit to New Zealand.

This motel was a nice surprise, based in the centre of Kerikeri you can walk out into a busy and affluent town full of coffee shops and restaurants. The motel has a good sized pool and hot tub, and the owners are more than happy to ensure that your stay is all you want it to be. I was delighted by the motel and area.

Superb welcome,very comfortable room and good facilities. Good breakfast delivered punctually to your room. Conveniently located for town centre shops and restaurants. Ideal base for a holiday in the Bay of Islands. $20 taxi ride from the airport (but you need to book a taxi to meet you at the airport).

This was our first visit to Kerikeri and staying at the Kerikeri Homestead Motel was the perfect place to base ourselves while we explored the beautiful beaches of the Far North. The apartments are fantastic, the pool absolute bliss and Rob & Diane are very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to return!
