We happened on this motel by chance. From the onset this was a wonderful experience. Dallas welcomed us at reception and took great efforts to see we were well catered for. The units were immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. We were enchanted by the gardens. Dallas helped us pick macadamia nuts and crack them. He was concerned at the comfort of the fold out queen size bed; yet there was no need. It was a great bed to sleep on.
Value was excellent. In a week of touring in Northland this was just $10 more than some very questionable places we stayed at. For all the luxury and seclusion what an absolute bargain.

I can only rate this place as incredible with top credit for impeccable service.

Room Tip: Units 10 and 11 were great

We were only in Kerikeri for 1 night to see the Nairobi Trio Jazz band in concert at Marsden Estate Winery. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised with the friendly greeting we got from the owner (complete with a welcome glass of wine). The rooms far exceeded our expectation. They are huge with a large bathroom (with spa bath which was heaven given the chilly time of year) and a large kitchen. The sliding glass doors opened onto a roomy deck overlooking the gardens. The place is spotless and very relaxing. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: If travelling as a couple, ask for a room with spa bath. Great after a hard days relaxing.

Our hosts were particularly helpful . They welcomed us with local wine. The beds were clean and the room had a patio where we could sit outside. We enjoyed the clean pool and spa bath. Towels were fresh and the room was clean. We stayed four nights and would choose to stay here again.

Room Tip: There is a chocolate factory that is very close to the hotel, but thankfully you can swim off the ca...

I stay here for business travel every month, the owners are fantastic people. The rooms are very good, the shower is excellent high pressure. The Rooms have a lot of space, kitchen is modern.

I have stayed at a few locations in Kerikeri this is by far the best. If you come to Kerikeri stay here trust me.

We stayed here for 5 nights and every day we were out exploring we came back to a tidy clean room. Very helpful staff re what to see and do. We were here in the winter for a wee break away,and you could go outside off your deck and pick fresh oranges and lemons off the trees, it is a little out of town but very quiet no road noise, very peaceful.They have a pool BBQ area gym.

Room Tip: We had a studio unit very comfortable for two adults, there is no views but the peace is worth it
