My wife and I travelled NZ for six weeks this spring. We stayed in many motor lodges along the way. The Kauri Park Motel was probably the best of the bunch overall. Clean, comfortable, quiet, well appointed, nicely landscaped, friendly, and very good value for the money. A short drive to the lovely town of Kerikeri, and the region beyond....

We have a lovely time in Kerikeri - our motel unit at Kauri Park Motel was really nice. Clean and tidy and very private. The welcome drink for myself and partner was most appreciated. A wine for me and a beer for him ☺ Our hosts Carl and Justine were very welcoming.

Great to hear you enjoyed your time here at Kauri Park Motel.

Offered a drink, wine or beer, on our arrival set the tone for this lovely place. Beautiful grounds we could view from our patio area. Very quiet. DVD`s on loan etc. A small pool, but plenty big enough for family use. Large room, terrific shower.

I was very favorably impressed by this motel. The rooms were very comfortable and extremely clean. There was also a nice terrace so that one could eat or relax outside. The wifi was excellent. Above all, the service was impeccable and friendly. Very good location, well positioned for excursions to the Bay of Islands or the North Cape.

Excellent cabins in a pleasant setting. Well appointed and spotless. The pool was a little smaller than expected, but pleasant nonetheless. The grounds are beautifully shaded by native trees. The owners are welcoming and helpful.
