This is a quiet motel. We booked a family unit which actually had beds to sleep 5. Many we looked out had sofa beds or roll out beds. After a long trip we all wanted a REAL bed to sleep in. The unit was situated in the older part of the complex. It was well furnished, had a little deck... More

This is a good quality motel with spacious rooms and clean and generously sized rooms. It is centrally located close to the centre of town and eateries. A comfortable stay - although I was surprised there was no iron.

Lovely accommodation with friendly hosts. The only thing not perfect for us was that the bed was a bit softer than is ideal for our backs. It wasn't a major problem though because there was a single and double in the room so we took one each to avoid roll together. Note that we have a firm super king at... More

The room was fine but we should have been told there was construction going on when we booked. All afternoon when we arrived and from 8am outside my window in the morning. Electric saws and hammering. We wouldn't have stayed if we were told (which is why they didn't I suspect).

I've been to Kerikeri many times but this was the first time I had stayed here, and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are quite spacious, it's very quiet, there's free wifi, and it's close enough to walk to the main street to find somewhere for dinner.

At first we were reticent about staying so close to the town centre and the pub! Noise was at the front of our thinking. How wrong we were! No noise at all, in fact it's so quiet the tui's seemed loud! The staff made us feel welcome and went out of their way to assist us. Nothing was too much... More

The Homestead is perfectly located for a peaceful night(s) for business or pleasure. The new apartments are tastefully decorated and modern. Run by Michelle who is quick to please. Give it a go - no cooked breakfast though.

This place is great. Cabins are scattered through beautiful green parkland. Inside they are spacious, clean and well fitted. Lots of nice little touches, like real coffee and plunger, jacuzzi bath in the bathroom. I was visiting in the middle class of winter but the room was snug and warm really quickly with heat pump, radiator and electric blankets. Two... More
