12 nights at this little gem. Hosts Tony and Wendy are super friendly and helpful. Ideal and stunning location. Close to all major attractions and a 2 minute walk to town for all the cafes and bars. Have stayed in many places in Kerikeri and Woodlands is by far the best. Would most definitely recommend.

We stayed here for just one night to attend a wedding locally. The staff were super friendly, making sure that we were able to use the room a little earlier so we could put on our glad rags. My only regret was that I couldn't lie in bed longer the next day to enjoy the gorgeous view.

We had a room at the end, and a very pretty outlook to the trees. The room was absolutely immaculate, and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The staff was really nice and helpful.

Just came back from a couple of nights in the lovely town of KeriKeri. We were a group of 7, (5 adults and 2 children) and without exception the service in this motel was above and beyond anything we could possibly have asked for, or paid for.

Woodlands is definitely a hotel/motel I'd love to spend more than one night at. We had booked an Executive Studio, and this was well worth the money we paid. Our room was spacious and quiet and had a patio that looked out onto the forest. Staying for one night only we did not get a chance to sample all the...

So close to the shopping precinct of Keri Keri but nestled away in a bush enclosed enclave, this very quiet, warmly welcoming motel is one out of the box. This is not a modern motel but very comfortable with every amenity required for a short or long stay. What was particularly appealing was the 'in-house' dining room offering a range...
