Upon arriving in Kerikeri, it seemed like a vicinity I would like to stay longer than I had booked. Once I navigated to The Woodlands, I knew it was well-located ... near enough to walk to restaurants, cinema, and shops in the center of town; and far enough to not be in

We loved our stay at Woodlands Motel and would recommend it to everyone. The staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious and cleans, there’s multiple shared bathrooms and a well equipped shared kitchen. There is also a pool and hot tub which we had a dip in - so relaxing with the

Accidentally booked the tourist room for 1 night. For the price, it's pretty good. A basic room with beds, linen and towels. The Wi-Fi in the room was good too. The communal bathroom is fine, you have everything there that you need. Bought some food and unfortunately some of it

Response from woodlandsmotel, Front Office Manager at Woodlands Motel & Conference Venue
Responded 20 Nov 2018
Thank you for your review. Sorry that you think our motel is run down, and that you will not stay again, feedback is always appreciated, but we do hope that our guests will discuss with us in person any concerns they have. We take a lot of pride in doing our very best to ensure our rooms are clean and inviting for all. This property is older than most here in Kerikeri and wears her age well, and we work tirelessly to ensure that it is presented as best as we can. We do have tourist flats with shared bathrooms, this must be what you mean by communal living. It is apart of what we offer here at Woodlands for our basic travelers or budget conscious guests. Unfortunately with the wifi there is nothing we can do, the system needs upgrading or another booster added to the route and our management is aware and is taking it into consideration and will action when possible. Jon, Woodlands cat, did have a bird yes, not a native one and i removed it from him, as you saw me do. Hope this clears up any concerns you had.

"Studio rooms away from pool are quiet regardless of side of building."
"Avoid room 14 as it's next to kitchen."
"Rooms near the deck area and kitchen are noisy"
"We were right down the end of the property, which was very quiet and peaceful."
"Choose an Executive Studio and if you can wait for their 'specials'."
