I read that Stay Kerikeri had won an industry award so decided to stay there on our way to the far North. We liked it so much we stayed another night. The one bed apartment was extremely comfortable and every detail has been thought of. The owners are very helpful and welcoming.

Thank you both for the lovely review. Its a hoteliers worst issue when changes from third party websites don't make it through to them. But a problem is a solution in disguise and we were very happy to upgrade you to make the booking work. Great to meet you both and hope we see you back in the beautiful North.
