Kerikeri Homestead Motel & Apartments
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Kerikeri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 25, 2009

We booked online a few months before our trip because motel had great reviews. It turned out that they were genuine. Motel is placed in the quiet part of beautiful Kerikeri. At the same time it is in the very centre of this town (about 100 metres). We had a spacious unit for four people. It had two bedrooms, kitchen and living room. There was also a private patio only for us, perfect for an afternoon card play. Swimming pool was just 1 minute walk from our place. To sum upl, it was worth coming long way from Poland and spending here hot Christmas.

I booked online as i had 3 nights to stay in Kerikeri. The motel is very central and right behind a noisy pub but that didnt make any difference. Down the driveway to a lovely setting of trees and spacious lawns, a pol, golf course and spa pool. Ami and Scott were tremendous hosts who went out of their way to assist me and even offered to upgrade me to a more spacious chalet when a few little things went wrong.

great place to stay and I will go back

A very enjoyable stay in the hands of Sonja and Dave, the hotel's operators. Rooms are furnished to a high standard and include both the necessities and a few 'mod cons'. The spa bath is a great touch and for summer the verandah overlooking the refurbished pool would be very welcome.

Great location too, right in the heart of the town, so only a few minutes walk to the bars and restaurants. etc.

All in all, great location, excellent value for money and real customer service.

I stay regularly at the Homestead when I visit Kerikeri on business. Host Sonja always welcomes me with a big smile, remembers my room preference and the cooked breakfasts are the best in town.

We had escaped from our busy lives for a week, and wanted somewhere to blob out. We've been to Kerikeri before, but that time stayed further out of town.
We wanted to be able to walk into town easily, but we didn't want a noisy place.
At first we thought the Motel might be noisy - as it is quite near the road. However - the units are away down a driveway, and face away from the road - overlooking the pool and gardens. The highlight was the deck - we could sit out in private, with a glass of wine, and just "be". The room was clean, spacious and airy, and had everything we needed.
We didn't use the outdoor pool or SPA, but did enjoy our spa bath in the unit.
The manager - Sonja - was very helpful, gave us info and maps of the area.
We would certainly go back to stay.

This motel seems unpromising from the road, however we were pleasantly surprised. We received fantastic hospitality from the manager and staff. Our room was clean and very spacious complete with spa bath overlooking the pool with glimpses of the golf course. Quiet and relaxing grounds yet right in the middle of the town. Minutes walk to all the best cafes. Well deserving of its 4 star rating.
