Lovely big & clean rooms/units. Set among nature & the birds which is nice. The down side for me that I was sharing a car with a colleague & found this motel too far from town - even if I had felt like the walk into town there are no footpaths or lighting on the main road. Would not recommend... More

I very, very rarely give an accomodation an "excellent" but I have absolutely NO hesitation doing that for Kauri Park Motel. A small warning - it is a little ways out of the main part of town - about 4km which took us about an hour at a very average pace. We enjoy to walk so it wasn't a detraction... More

Gorgeous garden setting with property situated back off the road so wonderfully quiet. Owners delightful and very helpful. Enjoyed the free drink upon arrival - nice touch. Motel units very tidy, spacious and well equipped - great for business travellers or families alike. Perfect stay.

My husband and I went to the Bay of Islands to visit a friend and for our honeymoon. We came across Kauri park and it was perfect! The staff was so friendly and so helpful, even had complementary wine and beer when we checked in. Very good location to downtown and highways to neighboring towns. I was so so so... More

What a great place to stay. The units are set among trees, so they are quiet and peaceful. They owners are a delightful couple who offer all guests a welcome drink and escort everyone to their units to explain how things work. Everything is clean and tidy with a lovely swimming pool and BBQ area. The motels are situated on... More

Lovely Motel on a well maintained property. We were given a drink of choice upon arrival and a small carafe of milk for our tea and coffee. We had a tiny room which was sufficient but for a two night stay too small. We were there when it happened to be quite hot - since no A/C in room they... More

We have stayed in several motels in Kerikeri in recent years and this stood out as being one of the best. From the very warm welcome and accompanying drink to allowing us to keep our caravan on their site while joining our friends in the accommodation was something we hadn't experienced before and began our stay on a really positive...

Clean, tidy, spacious and well off the road. We were surprised with a beer and wine on our arrival and check in. Half way between the airport and Kerikeri township, this makes this accommodation very handy .

Thank you for choosing to stay at Kauri Park and thank you for taking the time to post a review. Nice to know you liked the drink on arrival, it does usually go down well after a long journey (or even a short one) to get here. Thanks again Warm regards Justine & Carl More

So pleasant to deal with, I had a late arrival but that wasn't an issue, the owners happily let me arrive at whatever time I liked, they gave good clear instructions on the phone of any information I needed were very pleasant and friendly.

Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. It really was no problem arranging a late check in for you guys, we understand that not everyone can get here before reception closes and if we are informed in advance as you did, then it can be a very easy process.
