An excellent motel which welcomes guests warmly. Both Alan and Andrea are very warm and welcoming hosts, who ensure you, as a guest, are well looked after, from the refreshment on arrival to excellent motel accommodation. The motel is set among trees and the bird life is abundant, making a very unique environment. And above all else, there is very little road noise!!! Recommend this motel to anyone looking for a quiet pleasant relaxing break in well tended rooms.

Room tip: All rooms are good, although the studio's and one bedrooms furthest from the office get more sunshine in the morning.

Thank you blicky46, for the really super review. We too love our very unique environment; quiet, secluded, private, off-road, surrounded by magnificent trees and wonderful bird-life. Always lovely to see you, so looking forward to your next visit :-)

Had an overnight business trip to Kerikeri. Stayed here for our 1 night away. Such a lovely welcome, walked us to our room with a complimentary beer & glass of wine. Room very clean & comfortable. Off the road and very peaceful also. Given a map for eating places in the area and told to call out if we needed anything at all.

Well located yet very secluded and peaceful there's a lovely tropical feel to the surrounds. The owners were a lovely couple who were very hospitable, presented me with a complimentary drink and pointed out a range of local options for good dining (I went with their recommended option, a restaurant just 300m down the road and didn't regret it - service was good and the food excellent). The unit I stayed in had a spacious superb bathroom complete with large spa bath, and was newly furnished with a tropical feel that fitted right in with the surrounds. The high wooden ceilings with their feeling of space really made me appreciate what I miss when I stay at a typical low plaster ceiling motel unit. I had a great night's sleep - even the Tui outside started their singing at a very sleep-in friendly time! I definitely intend to stay there again when next travelling through Northland.

Welcomed on arrival with the best warmth and hospitality. Chocolates, cake and a glass of wine to relax after traveling. Chalet was spotless with new furniture and fittings. Very quiet in the park like surrounding.
We will stay there again.
