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.

Service over here is top notch! We stayed 3 nights and our room was serviced every morning. What you see in the pictures on the web is exactly how it looks like or even better. Room is sparkling clean and bright. The owners are lovely and friendly. They have done such a great job in managing the place, with plenty of clever personal touches to make the space inside and out, cosy, warm and comfy. It was great to know that they also provide complimentary laundry facilities for guests to use. You can't get bored here - a flick to 50 SkyTV channels, a skip to the pool, a hop to the nearest spa for a massage, and a leisure walk to the nearby shops & cafe. Highly recommended for any travelers.

I booked Stay Kerikeri for our Board visit to Kerikeri. From arrival our experience was nothing but fantastic. Bill and Paula were the epitomy of a good kiwi host. The experience was relaxed and laid back, and well organised. We had cooked breakfasts each day in the room which was well presented and delicious. There were 11 of us staying at the accommodation. The apartments and studios were well appointed, clean and cosy. The decor was tasteful / coastal. I would highly recommend this both for personal trips and for business. It was a nice walk to town and Bill even gave me a ride to the restaurant we were dining at as I was running late. I didn't have to ask he just knew! Thanks Bill and Paula for a fabulous stay.

My accommodation needs altered and management patiently altered my original booking offering larger facilities at no extra charge so that the special occasion I was booking for was not adversely affected. The owners could so easily have said, 'Well, sorry, we can't do that!' Communication was swift and clear.We were delighted with the lush, well kept garden environment, the cheerful, friendly hosts, the swimming pool, the interesting and comfortable interiors and the facilities in the units. Close to everything. We treated ourselves to meals at the Plough and Feather which is not far down the road and lunch at the Superbowl right next door but had we wanted to eat 'at home' all we needed was there. Thank you to management who supported the surprise element for one of our party! We are planning our next stay already.

We were in a serviced executive studio which had everything to make our stay perfect. Lovely 'kiwiana' themed décor, light and bright fresh and clean studio apartment, spacious bathroom and kitchen areas, beds very comfortable, plus a cute patio with Cape Cod style chairs for two. Parking right outside the apartment. Nicely planted gardens give a tropical feel, and the stand of mature Totara trees at the rear of the property is impressive. Best of all the owner is very hands on and very helpful and friendly. Bill greeted us on arrival and showed us to our accommodation to run through the facilities. His sense of humour appealed greatly to our's.

What a wonderful experience I had at Stay KeriKeri, the rooms are beautifully appointed and have everything needed for my stay. The little kitchenette is a great addition and having the availability of Sky Tv is very handy for a quiet night in. Being walking distance to town is great as being able to walk to the cafe's was very handy.
The welcome Paula and Bill have me when I arrived really made feel like family from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. I would recommend this place to anyone heading to Northland\Bay of Islands region of NZ

We spent 4 nights at Stay Kerikeri and it was so hard to leave.

The accomodation is so tastefully done and everything is thoughtfully carried out. If your hosts haven't thought of it , they are so helpful and can point you in the right direction.

A great base to explore the Northland

Spoil yourself and stay here

My sister and I were pleasantly surprised when we were shown to our unit, it was decorated beautifully with good quality beds and furniture. We found it well insulated to so soundproof and easy to keep warm. We really liked the bathroom being away from the bedrooms so you were not disturbed if someone got up in the night. Full size fridge which was a bonus and fully equipped kitchen. Friendly hosts and nice staff and beautiful park like grounds.

Stay Kerikeri is even better than it looks on its website. Great location, great decor in the units, truly a home away from home - great to return to at night after a long day out exploring. The little things like fresh milk in the fridge on arrival and detergent available in the laundry were appreciated. Thanks - we will return.

I have been travelling to Kerikeri with friends for 16 years for the half marathon, and mainly to this motel. However, since Bill and Paula took over the motel, the quality of accommodation has soared. It is unbelievable how they have transformed the motel into the beautiful state it is in today. Each year it gets even better, with all the little touches - plunger coffee, fast broadband, bottled water. The landscaping is superb. Bed is super comfy. Units are spotless. It is in a great location. This is the best motel in New Zealand.

What an amazing stay! They made us and our dog Bowzer the Schnauzer feel so welcome. Beautiful place and close to everything. Short drive to Matauri Bay and Paihia. Great gift shops and not to mention Makana chocolate factory. Thanks for having us.
