A quiet retreat in beautiful gardens. Welcoming hosts with homemade cookies and friendly assistance. Clean, spacious refurbished rooms, with soft comfortable beds and real milk for your coffee. Close to everything. Great pool and spa area. Highly recommended.

A lovely welcome awaits , could be in the middle of nowhere . peacefull and pretty with the sounds of native birds and the scent of Jasmine ... The glass if wine and home made cookies on arrival is a really nice touch.
The cabins are very private and furnished to a high standard with excellent bathrooms, the shower was powerfull ( which makes a change ) and height adjustable ( which also makes a change for us who are on the tall side)
Andrea & Alan are great hosts and the only down side was that we couldn't stay longer !! However we will be back ..

Room Tip: They're all great !!

We stayed here for 3 nights during the school holidays. I spent ages trying to find a place in Kerikeri to suit and was so pleased we struck the jackpot. Nestled in the trees near the Stone Store, the motel is so quiet and peaceful.We had a one-bedroomed unit which was so lovely and quiet. Alan and Andrea were the perfect hosts and had home-baked cookies and a glass of wine for us when we arrived. I couldnt rave enough. Thank you so much - just what we wanted !

Room Tip: We had the one bedroom unit but am sure the studios will be FAB too

A one-nighter, and we arrived early, whilst the units were being cleaned,but it was no trouble to the lovely hostess to get us into a room asap. We had #10, which has disabled person facilities, though we didn't need them. The room is bright & sunny, quiet....except for the lovely sound of tui feeding on the flowering cherry trees! A really comfortable bed, clean room, complementary milk ( & glass of wine if you want!)

Thanks for your review and a million sorries for the belated response.
Glad you came early and glad we had your room ready.
Everybody loves the Tui's and they do chatter a lot!
Come and stay again and maybe have that glass of wine...?
