About

#1 of 1 small hotel in Kerikeri
Location
Cleanliness
Service
Value
Avalon is a small boutique resort with self-contained serviced cottages and studio units, facing the golf course. Described as a little paradise and piece of heaven by many travellers, our 7 acre property features natural springs, waterfalls, lakes and river where you can kayaking. Our secluded valley has the feel of a nature retreat, but is close to shops, restaurants and various attractions in Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands. Set at the top of the valley, the stylish self contained cottages offer elevated views over the beautiful property. The deck, as well the large windows, allow one to be fully immersed in nature both inside and outside. With a king bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa-beds in the lounge, the unit can sleep up to 4 guests. The cosy self-contained studio rooms are located near the lush gardens around the Oasis pool complex. They sleep 2 or 3 guests and can be adjoined for families. Our studios all have an en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and a private covered deck area.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What’s not to like about this lovely property…… I brought my italian wife to the bay of islands to show her kerikeri and russell and paihia, i'm a kiwi and been working in uk for 28yrs... Hadnt been up North for +30yrs... The owner was super helpful for the recommendations for local restaurants and activities. Our own bungalow was surburb and we got an upgrade. Feeding the chickens and ducks that are on site each morning, became usual routine which was thoroughly enjoyable. Set among bush/amazing gardens with a couple of ponds, although we didn’t use the facilities down by the office (spa, plunge pool, sauna, laundry)…. Definitely would return if up in the bay of islands again in future, we paided £486 for 7 nights Only possible negative point, the rooms/bungalows weren’t serviced daily. We stayed for a week and had to ask for the room to be serviced on the third day…

The room was spacious with ample kitchen and bathroom supplies, the private deck is a great addition. The proprietors went out of their way to make sure our stay was as we expected. Smart TV’s are a bonus but please guests remember to sign out of your accounts when you leave

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottages. The location is close to the township, but you feel as though you are in the islands with the amazing plants and land. The staff are amazing and very accommodating. The cottage is nice and big, with 1 room and 2 day beds in the lounge. The kitchen is a nice size and has most of the necessities. We have been enjoying the patio eating most of our meals outdoors. It is such a nice and relaxing location a perfect space for a family or couple.

The small apartment for 2 people was adequate and the setting in a peaceful valley was beautiful. The Resort is close to central Kerikeri however the approach is down a long, narrow, winding road which has very limited passing places. In the dark we found it quite unnerving. We are glad to have tried it but wouldn’t return.

I booked with them over the phone and asked for email confirmation but that was never received so I had to ring to check. On arrival, the greeting was very lack lustre from a rather sloppy host. The room was very tired with mouldy curtains, lights that didn't work, chairs that were broken, a table that was broken and other irritations. This Lodge has the most amazing setting but is so neglected it is a real pity. It has a 4 star rating but there is no way it is up to this standard.

Relaxing and beautiful space. The sound of the flowing water downhill through the natural pool made the whole place seem calming. Room was beautiful and the spa was great. Perfect for a couples weekend away.

Have to be really honest here. Average at best, pics look great yet the place is really in need of a good clean / is very dated. Our room stunk of cigarette smoke on arrival, there were nail clippings left in the bedside cabinets & the room was really stuffy / no way to have airflow without bugs, and to top it off there was cockroaches in the bathroom. I think we got the most budget room on the property but for $130 per night we would not bother again, Kerikeri is beautiful but this place is in need of TLC. Would not go here again or reccomened.

We stayed here during a couple of days in Kerikeri. It’s hidden away just off the road through town. Had no idea this place existed. We had a nice little bungalow with an outside deck. Perfect just to relax, read and chill out. Check-in/out good and straight forward.
