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. The hosts and staff were tremendous, assisting us during our stay with suggestions...

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...

Thank you for your lovely review and awesome that you enjoyed your stay with us. Kerikeri and surroundings areas certainly need a few days to explore, you will just have to come back.

We had a small conference, what an amazing venue, Great food both for catering for the conference and breakfast the next day - could not fault a thing. The rooms were clean and comfortable and with the bush just outside your door - to be able to sit on the private deck to have a coffee in the morning and...

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...

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay for one night and we found Woodlands. We had a shared bathroom, but ti was fine...we never ran into anyone else while using the restroom that night or morning. We actually never saw another soul while here. We arrived late and the lady working had left us a key and map...

I'm writing this review from room 14 in a low cost unit. It's Sunday night in Kerikeri and it doesn't seem like there's a whole lot else to do. Besides, it's darned cold outside. The room is spotlessly clean. It's quite old......indeed I wouldn't be surprised if it was built in the 1960s but it's in better shape than much...

Thank you Bob, what a fantastic review and that is exactly what Woodlands is all about - we are not the modern day hotel. We do pride ourselves on our rooms & surroundings, the choice of either the Tourist Rooms with the shared facilities or the Executive Studios and hope that our guests feel at home and enjoy their stay...

My friend and I only stayed for one night. But with the price we paid, this place really exceed our expectation. When I first visited it's website, I thought that it's a dodgy looking place. But, alas! In reality, it took my breath away! Lovely place indeed... 5minutes away from the town and for a budget accommodation, really worth it!
