Great place to stay We were greeted with a complimentary drink on arrival and we were also allowed an early checkin without any hassle as we had a afternoon wedding to attend. Lovely friendly people would definately stay again

Managers were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Studio room was modern, clean and comfortable. Approximately 20 mins drive to Paihia and close to sights around Kerikeri. A little disappointed with the laundry, could do with a clean particularly the washing machine and when cost was $5 per load. Beside this one issue the motel was great and in a lovely setting....

Clean Bright modern unit. No smells. Glass of wine on arrival was a lovely touch. Friendly and most helpful welcome. Only negative is the outside light on the path shone all night and as there is glass on the door it shone through making the room very light. A suggestion would be to have a blind or curtain to cover...

My Californian friend and I enjoyed the peace, the garden, the birds, the little deck, and the eco-orientation of Kauri Park. We also enjoyed the glasses of wine which greeted us on arrival and the friendliness of the owners. I'd stay there again.
