This is the third time we have stayed at Woodlands,and one we were looking forward to (see my review). That experience was wonderful and we were full of praise for Wendi and Tony.To discover that they had sold the business and had moved on was quite devastating, as they were the business.Woodlands is situated amongst majestic trees in a peaceful...

The tourist cabin was lovely. Everything you need just had to share a communal shower and kitchen but that was fine. Beautiful surroundings within easy walking distance to town. Really quiet and tranquil. Nice outlook onto BBQ area and pool.

We stopped here for one night only as part of our self-guided tour of New Zealand. The staff that we came into contact with were friendly and helpful. We had a family room (with a double and two single beds) with shared loos, shower and kitchen.  Fortunately access to the shared facilities was under cover, as there was a lot...

Unexpectedly turned up after a long drive from New Plymouth late at night looking for a room and was greeted very kindly. Location is mint and 2min down the road to town. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Water pressure in shower could be a bit better but all in all it was a awesome stay.

This gem is walking distance to town. It is surrounded by established bush and has a lot of bird life making for a very peaceful ambience. They have a number of communal areas where you can gather by the pool,in an open BBQ area or an under cover bar/BBQ area. Modern motel units very nicely done with a lot of...

In early October 2016, my husband and I spent 3 days at this beautiful and peaceful motel right in the town of Kerikeri. The owners went out of their way to welcome us to New Zealand, and even picked us up from the bus stop and took us to the airport at the end of our time there. In helping...

I organise motorcycle road rides for groups and recently we took 27 clients to Woodlands for a 2 night stay. Wendi and Tony are the best of hosts and made everyone so welcome.
