A wonderful welcome complete with complimentary drink gave this place a homey feel right from the start. Carl and Justine were very engaging and helpful with local tips and advice. We talked at length with Carl about the grounds and variety of vegetation they have. We would highly recommend Kauri Park and consider it a great value as well.

Superb rooms, had one with a whirlpool bath, large screen TV with sat and DVD player, and you can borrow DVD's from reception for free. Was quickly checked in and given free welcome drink - a glass of wine or bottle of beer! Also got free milk for the room fridge. Everything you could want! Great quality furnishings, both sofas...

Great welcome with the offer of a drink. The room was very well appointed with the added attraction of a spa bath. The room was spacious and we'll set out for 2 people. The location was perfect for us to where we had to go each day.

We stayed here for 3 nights, had grand daughters aged 8 and 5. Motels are fantastic, very clean and roomy! Spa bath and swimming pool which we used every day. Justine and Carl are lovely friendly people, the booking was easy and they welcomed us with a complementary wine and beer and soft drinks for the kids when we arrived....

We thought this was a really lovely setting and a roomy motel and also very clean, but unfortunately there was a terrible smell in the room, which we put down to body odour on the couch. The bed was really hard and we were lying on electric blanket wires. We stayed for four days because this was what we had...

Great to hear that you found the setting lovely and your room clean. We are however very surprised and quite amazed that you never mentioned to us over the 4 days you stayed that you had such a bad smell in your room, so bad that you would consider leaving and giving us our worst review ever. We saw you...

Quite comfortable and private. We had a very nice time and enjoyed the quite surrounding. The units was clean and tidy and very roomy for a studio unit. Would recommend you to consider staying there. The owners were very nice and looked after us well.

Room had everything we needed, very clean and tidy, and Kerikeri was a great place to stay. Super great friendly service! A bit too far to walk into the town centre but only a few minute drive away. Nice touch of free drink on arrival.

This was our third stay at this Motel, & all you can say is that it is really excellent. A warm welcome from the hosts, with a welcoming glass of wine or beer, puts you off to a good start. The units are not in one block, but are scattered through the reasonably extensive grounds in small groupings, thus giving...
