“Our favourite spot in Kerikeri”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Our annual holiday wouldn't be complete without including a visit to Tony & Wendi at Woodlands Motel in Kerikeri. They are outstanding hosts with the perfect mix of hospitality and fun, the food is second to none and the venue is relaxing, caters for all ages and is a beautiful 'woodland' setting. We really love everything about it and will keep returning to see the lovely Wendi and Tony every Kerikeri holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms view out to lovely tall woodlands with different types of rooms for different groups - com...

My partner and i have just spent 2 nights in this motel and really it is an excellent one . The bedroom was spacious, perfectly well equiped and clean . Nothing missed to prepare a meal .
We really enjoyed it . What more could we expect than that .. And also the kindness of Wendi to explain us where to go and what to see !
A great motel in a lovely garden .

Room Tip: The bedroom number 6 is very well situated near the forest so with a minimum of traffic.

We recently had the pleasure of experiencing a week of the most outstanding hospitality of Tony & Wendi and staff at Woodlands in Kerikeri. This hidden gem was a great place for our large group with a wonderful spacious outdoor entertaining area where we could enjoy our get togethers for meals, drinks and meetings. The rooms were all well presented and our super king size bed was so comfy, I had the most wonderful sleeps each night. It was great having such a lovely bush setting so close to the CBD. Thanks Tony & Wendi for all your efforts in making our week such a memorable and enjoyable one. Will definately see you again.

My mate Dave and I went up to Kerikeri for a 3 day golfing weekend and the Woodlands motel was a Golfers paradise, Wendi and Tony were absolutely excellent Hosts two of the loveliest people that I have met, she cooked us excellent meals and they introduced us to some hard case and neat people and boy did we have a great time.. Golf during the day, party/BBQ/lots of Laughs at night, I will definitely be recommending this place to my family and friends, in fact we're taking our wives back with us next time to meet them....."nothing was a problem" SO, if you're planning a boys or girls weekend go stay at Woodlands Motel and meet some unique Kiwis. Thank you Wendi and Tony and friends for a lovely time.

Room Tip: Get the good ones before you mates!!!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at Woodlands, Wendy and Tony made us feel very welcome. This is a lovely property set off the road and caters for just about everyone. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean, a most enjoyable few days.

I stayed for one night one a business trip after reading good reviews.

Thoroughly recommend Woodlands - the owners went out of their way to make it a good stay. They picked me up from the airport when the shuttle didn't arrive, cooked me dinner despite arriving late, and gave me a lift into town the next day (very near town anyway but it was pouring). The room was excellent and I will definitely stay there when I am in Kerikeri next.

Woodlands is an amazing find. This place is outstanding, if you are visiting Kerikeri - book it. Wendi & Tony are the best hosts we encountered during our recent trip to New Zealand. Nothing was too much trouble. Even finding a special receipe for porridge!!. An evening in the bar with Wendi and Tony will leave you with great, fun, memories. The rooms are large, clean, beautifully decorated, well equipped and with views of the woods. There is a lovely walk down to the river through the private woods, well recommended. As well as a bar the Woodlands also serves dinner, useful if you don't want to walk into town (which is no more than 5 minutes away). There is plenty of outside space with a swimming pool and spa. Overall a great combination of location, quality of accommodation and friendly service.

Room Tip: Ask Wendi for a room facing the woodlands

So glad that you found Woodlands enjoyed your stay with us, you made it so easy to be great hosts as you were great guests, we certainly enjoyed your company as much. As for the porridge it was great to get Granny's cookbook out again.
