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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place is F...A...B!!! We stayed here for several nights with our head-injury dad and nothing was too much trouble. We (obviously) required a late checkout...no trouble. We needed a parking issue resolved so we could be guaranteed an easy spot of parking when we returned from a day trip so we could get Dad in and out from the car to the room...again, no problem...they had a cone placed there ready for our return, knowing we had a disabled man in our family. They were friendly and their place is full of animals which is a lovely extra when you are looking for a nice holiday venue. We recommend these guys with confidence!!

We stayed at Laraine and Ed's hidden gem for a whole month while our bathroom was being fitted. They went out of their way to make us comfortable, providing us with Sky TV, and all regions video player and unlimited free WiFi. The kitchen was fully functional and there was a washing machine and dryer. The room are spacious and the beds perfect. If you are looking for somewhere central to Kerikeri, Paihia, Russell or Opua but want all the comforts of home and with it's own petting zoo book immediately, you won't regret it

We rented a two bedroom unit this past weekend, and as always the hosts at Bay Of Islands Country Lodge Motel were extremely accommodating and pleasant to deal with. We had issues with our booking as we booked through a third party site, but the hosts at the Motel came to our rescue and managed to accommodate us none the less. The Motel itself, is very relaxing ... our boys enjoyed the pool and lazing in the hammock. The unit we stayed in was very spacious and well equipped. The location is ideal as it's located in the middle of Paihia and Kerikeri. The motel also has a spa. It was not our first visit to BOI Country Lodge Motel, and most definitely not our last!

Wife and I stayed in Unit 1 for two nights. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Bathroom dated but everything works. Overall establishment a bit dated in appearance but that is misleading. Very helpful and pleasant owners. And inexpensive!

Great experience and well worth the money spent! The host was very knowledgeable about what to do and where to go in the surrounding area. We are from the United States and it was great talking to the host and we were able to learn more about New Zealand. Comfortable beds and neat layout of the suite we stayed in. I not only would recommend this lodge for others to stay at but if I'm ever in the area again in this northern part of North Island, I wouldn't hesitate to stay yet again!

Family and friends from NZ and overseas stayed here while attending a wedding. Ed and Larraine are great hosts, the units are clean and tidy and being able to see and feed the farm animals was a highlight for some guests. Well situated out of town but only 15 minutes to Kerikeri, Paihia or Kawakawa.

This motel is located a few miles out of Paihia, on a highway junction. The road is fairly busy, but the units are extremely comfortable - big, shady, very well-appointed. There's a nice little pool (but be careful of the ladder getting in) that was perfect for a mid-afternoon wallow, screened from the road by good planting and fencing. If you're an animal lover, you'll enjoy the free-range chickens, all of whom are named of course, and who do a morning round of the occupied units, just in case there's a few crumbs going... there's also two Captain Cook pigs, a donkey, a horse, some goats, and probably more that I didn't see. The owners are delightful and very knowledgeable about the area and its attractions. There's a big cafe/country store just across the road, and Paihia is literally 15 minutes' drive away for all the shops and bars and eateries one could want. Location is perfect for exploring up to Kerikeri, Cape Reinga, and down to the Kauri forests on the west coast (but allow a good 2 hours each way for that, it's a LONG drive). Wifi was very good and free, as is now normal for Kiwi holiday accommodation. This one is definitely going on our list of places to stay in future.

Very tidy, comfy accomodation, friendly owners (and farm pets) handy location. I was surprised at how quiet it was even though on a busy road. Great place to stay if you are visiting Paihia and Kerikeri

Even though its next to the highway, you don't here much noise, because of nice rooms. The rooms were extremely clean and very spacious. The hosts are very friendly and gave so much information about in and around places to visit. There is a full kitchen setup which helped us in cooking food during our stay.

We had a great time staying at the Bay of Islands Country Lodge for one week during April. The rooms were extremely clean and cosy. The animals on the property are all very friendly and we loved feeding Hazel the piggy and Minty the sheep. Fantastic location too as we were such a short distance from both Paihia and Keri-Keri. Will definitely stay again! Highly recommend!
