Have stayed here a number of times for business purposes and the folk in the office are always very friendly and go out of their way to assist. It is a "green" environment and they conserve water etc for utilising in other areas of the site. Quite commendable. However, this doesn't detract from the very pleasant rooms and surroundings (and...

Superb rooms, had one with a whirlpool bath, large screen TV with sat and DVD player, and you can borrow DVD's from reception for free. Was quickly checked in and given free welcome drink - a glass of wine or bottle of beer! Also got free milk for the room fridge. Everything you could want! Great quality furnishings, both sofas...

We stayed four nights over Easter. Nice room with spa bath, well serviced daily and immaculate. Lovely grounds with a feeling of privacy. Good off street parking by the unit. Units were spaced in small groups through the grounds and not looking into each other or standing in a row, landscaped in native bush. Lovely bird song in the mornings...

The Kauri Park Motel is ideal if you would like the peace and quiet. It is a short drive to Kerikeri and the surrounding area is lush. Check in was very easy. The complimentary drink on arrival is nice. The room was spacious and the kitchenette was well-equipped. My bathroom has a spa pool which I did not manage to...

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it. Nice to hear that you enjoyed your room and our lush grounds and gardens. There's nothing better after a long drive then sitting on the deck and looking out at the native bush whilst enjoying a complementary glass of wine or beer :) Many Thanks, Carl...

Really enjoyed our three days at Kauri Park. The setting is so relaxing, green & peaceful. The room was very comfortable. The service was exceptional. Very helpful & pleasant staff. The only problem we had is not a criticism of the Motel but the main road it is situated on has no lighting at night which is difficult for older...

We stayed here for 2 nights as our base whilst we toured around the bay of islands area. We were given a very warm welcome and a drink on arrival. Our unit was very roomy, clean and quiet. I would stay again next time we come to NZ.

The motel is located just a few minutes from Kerikeri main street, and the surrounding for motel is great. We stayed for two night and felt the owners made the stay great and the offer of a drink on arrival was a great touch. Would come back here again but hope the next time it doesn't rain. But I guess...

A wonderful welcome complete with complimentary drink gave this place a homey feel right from the start. Carl and Justine were very engaging and helpful with local tips and advice. We talked at length with Carl about the grounds and variety of vegetation they have. We would highly recommend Kauri Park and consider it a great value as well.
