    This motel is great! Clean, well kept. Attention to detail. Loved it. Alan & Andrea where wonderful hosts. Wine and cookies where a lovely treat when we arrived. They are a wealth of knowledge. The motel is actually individual cute cabins. They are super cute and well done. Surrounded by bamboo and trees and fauna. You do not even realize your in a town. This is an absolute must stay if you are in Kerikeri.

    Very quaint property and a comfortable room with everything we needed. A smart TV with all the channels we required, ample kitchen facilities for breakfast and small meals, great bathroom and shower and a comfortable bed. The saltwater pool was very pleasant with lovely surrounds.

    Free Wifi, complimentary beverage and very comfortable bed. Trees and grounds could do with a bit of a trim and tidy up but this is nothing major. Would definitely stay again.
