Reviewed 23 May 2017

We arrived late in the evening, and it was nice to receive a call prior to our arrival from the hosts to check we hadn't got lost, and so we were able to assure them we were on the way and our ETA. We received a friendly welcome on arrival, and check in process really straightforward.

Our room (no 1) was super clean, warm and well equipped. The site was in immaculate order, and we thought the price for the night was very reasonable.

If I'm ever in Kaitaia again, I would definitely stay here, and recommend as an excellent choice for accommodation.

A great basic kiwi motel, lovely sunny clean units, spacious and well appointed. Situated just on the edge of town. This place is great for a few nights stop-over or to use as a base while exploring the far north. We found the hosts lovely to deal with and the prices very reasonable. The beds were comfortable and the high level of cleanliness was reassuring.

Room Tip: pick a room furthest from the road

On our way to Cape Reinga, we stayed here for two nights, very clean, comfortable 3 star accomodation. The unit is self contained and the owner arranged our bus tour for us. Very reasonably priced. Free wifi which works well.

We really liked our stay at Kauri Lodge Motel. It's close enough to walk easily to town and yet is quiet and peaceful. Very clean. Everything worked and was well maintained. The bed was great and we slept very well. Easy access in any direction by car too. The owners are wanting to sell and retire and yet they still keep up the place with diligence. A great little Motel.

My son and I chose this motel because it was low priced and looked very neat from outside. We were not disappointed. The lady was minding the motel for the owners and she was very professional and kind. The rooms were immaculate and had a kitchenette. I would very much recommend this motel to a tired traveller.
