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.

My family and I (4 adults and one teenager) spent the night at Swallows ridge, and what a lovely place to stay! The setting is beautiful, views of the country side and bay, luxurious rooms and perfect hosts, Chris and Mike. Would strongly recommend Swallows ridge as the place to stay in KeriKeri.

My wife and I recently stayed at Swallows RIdge as part of our honeymoon trip to New Zealand, and we enjoyed our two nights there immensely. The rooms were extremely comfortable - clean, spacious and with a stunning view over towards Kerikeri Inlet and the Bay of Islands. We found Mike and Chris extremely friendly and they made us feel like we were old family friends, and the whole experience was very homely. Mike cooked us a delicious breakfast which really set us up for the day. Nearby Kerikeri has a number of restaurants and cafes and also the historic Stone Store and beautiful Rainbow Falls - a delightful part of the country! Whilst the place would be beautiful in the summer, the mild climate here means a stay at any time of year is worthwhile. Highly recommended!

We (my wife, my son - age 16 and me) spent 4 nights in Chris and Mike's house. We experienced a marvelous house and very pleasant hosts. The B&B is located outside of Kerikeri and only accessible by car. GPS is helpful, especially if you want to get back at night. We had a nice bed room with its own bathroom. Also, we had direct acess to a small terrasse, the garden and the pool. When sitting outside, you can enjoy a fantastic view over land and the bay at the horizont. Chris and Mike made you feel like being at home. Breakfast was prepared by Mike upon your personal preferences. We obtained very valuable tipps to explore the area. Also, Mike made reservations of cinema, sightseing tours and restaurants. If we will have the chance to come back to New Zealand, we would surely come back to them again.

Staying at Swallows Ridge for 3 days was the most amazing get-away. The rooms were immaculate, the view amazing, the facilities perfect and the hosts were just beautiful people and nothing was too much trouble. This little corner of the Bay of Islands gave a couple of Aussies a perfect break from city life.

We recently spent a night at Swallows Ridge and were tremendously impressed by the friendly, helpful hosts, the luxurious quality of the accommodation, the situation in quiet countryside overlooking the distant Bay of Islands and Mike's wonderful home-cooked breakfast. We consider ourselves aficionados of B&Bs and this definitely one of the best we've stayed at! Alan & Gay B.

Recently took a few days break from Auckland. What a wonderful treat. The cleanliness and hospitality were fantastic. We have stayed in various accomodation all over the world and I can honestly say that this B&B is the cleanest place we have ever had the pleasure of staying at.
The hosts were so friendly and helpful in every way, breakfasts were awesome and the cost was very reasonable.
Highly recommend.
Thanks Mike and Chris.

I stayed at Swallows Ridge recently as I was in Kerikeri for the Half Marathon. I had the best night sleep I've had in a long time and was perfectly prepared for the race. Chris and Mike were exceptional hosts, the facilities were incredibly clean and comfortable, there were brilliant views, it was easy to find and very peaceful. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

We recently stayed the night at this really lovely B&B. We were visiting Kerikeri for the Garden Ramble, and staying at this beautiful home really topped off the weekend and made it feel like a special treat. We enjoyed the pool, the friendly chicken! and the lovely breakfast. A really Top Class B&B. Thanks Mike and Chris for making us so welcome
