Super clean rooms, cosy, warm & the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The hospitality at the bar for drinks & the home cooked meals were better than most restaurants in the area. Tony & Wendi will make your stay........ Do yourself a favour !! Very handy location walking distance to town.

Wow, thank you. I am so glad that you had a great time, even in Winter time. Northland certainly is a special place and is very easy to promote. As for enjoying Woodlands, it works both ways - easy for us when we always get fabulous guests coming to stay. Take Care, Wendi

I spent 6 weeks at Woodlands recently and it was perfect for my stay in KeriKeri. Wendi and Tony are fantastic hosts, who truly go above and beyond for their guests. I stayed in a Tourist Cabin most of the time, and the shared kitchen and bathrooms were super clean, and very well stocked. Great value for money also! Gorgeous...

Great location. Clean, modern, well furnished room. Accommodation is adjacent to woodlands. Plenty of outdoor tables/seating, so you can enjoy having a meal with others. Also has a great shared kitchen, including cooking utensils, fridge and freezer. Took advantage of the outdoor heated spa, which was very relaxing. Friendly staff. Favourite accommodation on this trip.
