“ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

This was my first visit to Kerikeri and I loved every minute of my stay.
The warm welcome I received from Wendi and Tony (the hosts) was great and they were extremely informative suggesting what I should see during my short stay.
Kerikeri has wonderful shopping within walking distance of Woodlands.
The complex is wonderful - a home away from home with no housework etc.
The kitchen. showering and laundry facilities are terrific and very handy to the bedrooms.
I will certainly be returning to Woodlands for longer next time. Kerikeri is extremely lucky having such wonderful ambassadors as Wendi and Tony

Room Tip: I would suggest a corner suite as they are large and sunny.

Such a lovely place to stay. Lovely surroundings, beautiful pool, rooms are lovely and clean. Had several meals which were all very tasty - pool and spa kept the kids occupied. The hosts Wendy and Tony are brilliant at what they do, cant recommend Woodlands enough!

Lovely settIng with Tuis and Bellbirds in lush bush, yet within walking distance of the shops. Lots of off road parking and space for boats. Great restaurant, clean rooms and amazing service. Tony and Wendi go out of their way to make your stay memorable, you arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend. Hx

We loved every minute of our stay. The room was so clean and comfortable and the kitchen facilities were well equpped. Ladies toilets and shower both clean and good. The pool area had lovely comforatble loungers and great spa pool. The planting around the units are very pretty. The hosts were incredibly helpful and friendly. We had dinner on our first night and steak and chicken were delicious. Communal areas very attractive. Tony and Wendi booked us a trip to Cape Reinga and this was a superb day trip - picked up fromour unit. Wendi recommended a walk that was so picturesque. We chose to saty in the shared bathroom units as people on here had said were good and they were right superb value and would recommend to all. Very conveniently located easy 5 min walk into Kerikeri.
Thank you for a great stay.

I have been all over the world but this LITTLE WONDER in New Zealand is the perfect find. My luck was in when I came across WOODLANDS MOTEL in keri keri. Not much more I can say other than... stay at this motel for sure and... When you are greeted by the best hosts in the world - Tony and Wendy say a big hello and "BUNNY sent me"!! You will be more looked after than the Royal Family!!!

So pleased we picked to stay at woodlands. Everything was so good and the rooms are so nicely appointed and clean. Really nice surroundings with the large acreage on the property, enjoyed the sunny decks and most of all a comfortable bed.
Tony and Wendy really know how to look after you and make your stay an enjoyable one. Highly recommend you stay at this property
