My partner and I stayed here for 1 night and I thought it was an amazing place. The setting was beautiful - with our room overlooking the forest. The room was very clean, the bed was massive and very comfortable! We woke in the morning to so many different birds singing and it was very amazing. There was a continental breakfast included in the room rate and I thought the price of the room and breakfast was really good value for money. It was very quiet which was nice and whilst I read other reviews that said the motel is tired and needs work, I found everything very up to standard and I have no complaints there. I really wanted to give my stay 5/5, however there was one down side that disappointed me a bit... staff. When I went to check out, the lady at reception didn’t ask about how our stay was - in fact she was pretty unfriendly. I asked if she could round the price of the room up (because I was so impressed) and she acted like it was frustrating that I wanted to pay more because her system couldn’t accommodate my request. I felt disappointed that an otherwise perfect night away was negatively tainted by one staff member.

The staff are friendly, the room is clean and spacious, the kitchen facilities are good, the bed I wanted to take home, what a great nights sleep. The setting is peaceful. The bush at the back has a great calming effect. So why only 90%? I've stayed here before and was happy to book again and would stay again BUT they need to look at the bedroom furniture it's getting a little knocked about, Ok it's done few miles but maybe it time to look at it. It didn't really distract from my stay. BUT the shower badly needs some attention. Low water pressure, tepid fluctuating temperature from cold to hot then back to cold again. Fix that and I'd give you 100%.

We stayed in a motel in Whangarei the night before and the difference was quite noticeable.This place is a little tired and needs some serious TLC.I see they have it up for sale but a lot of capital needs to be poured in to make it truly a jewel within the town of Kerikeri. It's branding on a marketing perspective seems confused due to fixture and fittings and general appearance.It reminded me of a campsite when I was younger. I hope the new owner will show it true potential when I next visit.

Spent 4 nights at Woodlands visiting family who live with us. Booked via the Bookings Website which was easy. The hosts and staff are lovely people who were extremely accommodating and made our stay all the more comfortable... Our kids visited daily and our granddaughter spent a couple of nights as well... We stayed in the Executive Suite which smelt and looked very clean on arrival... The room itself had everything we needed and the bed was enormous... Use of the communal kitchen meant we didn't have to dine out every night. The bathroom was the only downfall: the shower was a bit unstable so my husband had to tighten the shower head holder a couple of times... Just needs a lil maintenence more than anything but otherwise an excellent stay... The pool was a great delight given the hot weather and the bushwalk from Woodlands to the Fairy Pools was definitely worth the journey... Overall our stay was great and we will most definitely be returning next time we're up this way....
