From arrival when you are offered sweets and wine to the well presented rooms and the personal touches I was very impressed I will be back. Well fitted rooms and thoughtful layouts, comfortable beds and high quality Bathroom with all the usual products. The owners are friendly and go that extra mile. Look no further you will love it here

Stayed: June 2018

This peaceful motel provided a haven of tranquility for our several extended stays.It is so private being away from the main road and yet close to all the walks and the Stone Store Historic Area and an easy walk to town. The grounds, gardens and birdsong bring a real serenity which is hard to find. Lovely well kept pool.
Andrea and Alan couldn't be more helpful in their kind and practical way.
Units are spacious and homely with very comfy beds.
We hope to be back. Jenny,Napier

A very nice 'boutique type' secluded setting with the hosts being very hospitable. Extremely helpful and obliging with recommendations for both Dinner and Breakfast, especially in their knowledge of the town. Will definitely return for the experience.

I used this motel as a base in the Keri Keri when visiting the local area, It was a haven of peace and tranquillity.. The gardens and motel are really lovely and very well cared for !
If I am lucky enough to return to NZ and the North island, I would certainly hope to stay here again ,

This is a very peaceful location with lots of lovely trees and birdsong, and yet is so close to central Kerikeri. We have stayed here twice already and will certainly do so again. Alan and Andrea are so warm and were happy to share local knowledge to help us with our house hunting in the area. The rooms are super clean and comfy with everything you need. On our second visit Andrea knew what we had asked for as a "welcome" drink on our first visit, which is characteristic of their rare brand of hospitality.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom cabin by the pool would be super for a small family.
