Kerikeri Homestead Motel & Apartments

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is one of cleanest and nicest motels around. This is our 3rd stay because it's also so central, but quiet. Nice touch was when we got there in the early evening, the heater had been put on, so it was warm. We will back again soon.

Website misleading and totally overrated! Booked a two bedroom apartment. Photos of the motel and apartments show modern "apartments" beautifully landscaped with modern well appointed interiors, however, on arrival given a key to a crummy motel room with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom the size of a toilet, no mirror never lone power points, used tissue in under sink cupboard which is only useful for hiding the plumbing! Toiletries have to sit on kitchen table as there is no room to move in the bathroom! Only mirror in the whole place is in the hallway but no power points anywhere near it for a hair drier etc! Used ashtray on outdoor table full of water, disgusting! Various power points dodgy and potentially a hazard. For the price $179.20 for a two bedroom apartment is an absolute ripoff! Extremely disappointed and will never stay here again!

Nothing but good things to say about Kerikeri Homestead!! We were greeted by a very lovely lady at the reception very helpful and able to answer questions we had about the town & local transport etc as we had not been to Kerikeri before. The atmosphere felt great from the get go and we were not disappointed. Clean spacious room with a beautiful outlook on to the pool area. Unfortunately we checked in late (own fault) so we didn't get a chance to relax and soak it all up as we had a wedding to attend in Pakaraka but came back to a comfortable bed and slept like babies. Managed to get a late checkout which was great!! I could not leave without going for a swim in that beautiful pool so even tho it was not the warmest of days I went for a quick dip & had no regrets apart from now wanting to book another night ....... But work back in Auckland was calling :( Absolute Bliss !! We will be back :)

This motel was spotless and the bed very comfortable. The kitchen was well equiped. It was well located handy to town and set in park like grounds. It was to cool to try the pool but it looked lovely. We had a spa instead.

Stayed for just the 1 night, but would have to say the suite was very well appointed, comfortable, warm and modern. Very central location to township and all other attractions. Would definitely stay again.

I've stayed twice. Both in the regular and executive apartment. Both are great. 4 or 5 start rating. I take issue with the front of house. She was rude and then sarcastic over a small dispute. It's basic customer service. I'm not sure if she is the owner or not, but I will not stay again. I stay in Keri Keri 5 times a year and would have been a loyal customer.

This place met my expectations for one as it was exactly as described in the blurb advertising the executive one bedroom apartment. It accommodated our family of ( 2 adults and 2 girls aged 10 and 12) with a large king size bed in the bedroom and our daughters slept on the fold out couch bed in the living/kitchen area. This one bedroom apartment was very new and clean however quite small as give the foldout bed was in use there is not much room to move around as the fold out bed took up all the living room essentially. Luckily we were only staying one night and I dont think we could have survived more than 2 nights with limited space. If it was just a cople staying here- it would be perfect as the kicthenette is well equipped with full oven, microwave, a couple of hob rings and a dishdrawer. The bathroom has a good shower and there is also a washing machine and sep dryer as well. Our one bedroom unit opened out to a spacious grassy area with our own private patio where we could sit outside and watch the kids and have a coffee/glass of wine outside on our own outdoor dining set. Def would stay again here if we came to KeriKeri.

A two bedroom apartment Great apartment - everything that was needed for enjoyable stay. Comfortable beds, fantastic shower and water pressure, modern facilities and appliances. Great to be able to cook a meal/breakfast.

Really really nice place. Rooms are immaculate, all the amenities are covered and its very peaceful and quiet. Nice little patio and garden area outside the room. Short walk to lots of restaurants. Will be back.

We stayed here as a family, with a young baby and grandparents. This Motel caters for all ages with excellent pool, BBQ area and spacious rooms. We would highly recommend a stay here and would definitely book again. Excellent Wifi that we used for work with no issues.
