Reviewed 23 March 2011

The accommodation is just right for two people the bed was comfortable and the whole room was clean and neat. A kitchenette in the corner allowed preparation of food with a microwave. Ross and Deb offered the use of their bar-b-que for cooking on the deck. Location for us was perfect quite no traffic noise and close to Rainbow Falls. The bach type accommodation was set in lovely tropical gardens and we were even offered fruit and vegetables home grown. The breakfast needed to be pre-ordered and was delivered the night before. Nothing was too much trouble and during our stay we had two night socialising with Deb and Ross. The spa hot tub is available at no extra charge and allows you to relax overlooking the garden. Free wi-fi internet is available. The hosts have a very playful little dog called Yogi who is well trained not to enter the bach.Deb even cleaned my car now thats service.

We stayed 8 nights at the Rainbow Falls Lodge B&B while we were in Kerikeri visiting family. The setting was lovely with gorgeous gardens. The accommodation included a large bedroom with a mini-kitchen (microwave, small refrigerator, dishes, silverware, electric kettle, toaster, etc.), a 2-person table with chairs, a private bathroom, a TV, a DVD player, a CD player and a closet for stowing suitcases. There was a private deck on one side of the room overlooking the gardens and a patio off the other side of the room leading to a hot tub/spa. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of hiking and golf!

The best feature, by far, was that you filled out your breakfast request the afternoon before and your selections were delivered to your room that evening. Milk, yogurt and fruit were placed in the refrigerator and toast, cereal and breakfast bars (or whatever else you ordered) was left on the counter. When you got up the next morning, everything was waiting and you didn't have to shower or get dressed before enjoying breakfast.

Deb & Ross were friendly hosts and provided the perfect mix of social interaction and privacy. We joined them for a drink one evening that turned into an "impromptu Kiwi barbecue." They grilled sausages, flounder and fresh vegetables and served all of the wine and beer we could handle. It was wonderful! They also have an adorable dog named Yogi with whom you will fall in love. If you want to play, he's always ready.

Since we were there for such a long stay, we asked about laundry facilities. They offered us use of their washing machine for the small fee of $7 NZ per load. They even brought us a small deck-sized clothesline to use.

Our only complaint was very minor and easily fixed - we both like to read before going to sleep and there was a lamp only on one side of the bed. We moved a lamp from the TV table and solved the problem.

All-in-all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Rainbow Falls Lodge B&B and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed 2 nights at the Rainbow Falls Lodge. It is located a fair way out of Kerikeri but is a quiet place to unwind. The room is clean and comfortable and has a fridge and counter space. Judeen and Ross are warm and friendly and you fill in a menu which they bring to your room for breakfast the following morning. There is a hot tub/spa for your use although we didn`t try it. They have a very sweet dog, Peewee, who loved fetching a ball. Ross recommended a very nice restaurant for dinner. Rainbow Falls is very close by and we were quite impressed, as they were beautiful in November.
