What our guests say:

We both felt that this little retreat is a gem. We’ve been  in N.Z. For about 9 years and this holiday stands out as one of the best. Beautiful setting, lovely hosts who cared for every need including a lovely
glass of Pinot Gris whilst luxuriating in their wee spa pool! There are some very special walks around the property that are magical. All in all a class above and really excellent. J & B Smith – Jan 2015 – *****

Thanks for your high quality service. We had such a wonderful time staying in the Orchid Grove Country Lodge. IT was very clean and tidy, and we really enjoyed staying there. We surely recommend this lodge to anyone, it’s a perfect 5 out of 5 – K Patel – Auckland – Dec 2014 – *****

 It was just the most amazing place, we stayed there for the labour day long weekend for 2 nights. It was the first time we travelled with our 7 month old daughter. We got plenty of information on what to do around Kerikeri and then Michele was so kind to make a booking for us at food at Wharepuke restaurant which was like 10 minutes away. Great fish and chips in the vicinity and kauri forest walk is 10 minutes away as well. We had a 2 bedroom chalet which was beautiful and we had such a lovely time that we would definitely go back there. Michele already set us a portable cot for our baby and the rooms were impeccably clean. Great breakfast, great location and beautiful surroundings. Emad Asma – NZ – Oct 2014 – *****

We spent a very happy three nights last week at Orchid Grove country lodge and we could not fault it in any way.  Our hosts could not have been more welcoming and hospitable  and we would thoroughly recommend this beautiful New Zealand gem. Pam and Mike – UK – Feb 2014 – *****

Like others, I believe we had the privilege of staying at this charming Lodge…and what a unique experience!
Not only the accommodation is fantastic…clean, modern and the furniture have been selected with a touch of class, this was PERFECT.
Thanks to Michelle, Henry, for their wonderful hospitality, this was a unique experience … two specials, the glass of wine when we were enjoying the SPA and in the morning the home cooked breakfasts  Only one regrets, no staying there more longer. ***** – Michoux Family – France – Dec 2013

What a great place this is. Highest quality furnishings and decor, the most comfortable bed ever, Michelle and Henry have anticipated every possible comfort and cosseting need one might have and catered for them. There is a very comfortable lounge and a separate library area with a constant supply of tea/coffee etc.*****  - CC – Auckland – Oct 2013

Orchid Grove is a truly lovely place to stay. The accommodation is absolutely beautiful, the surroundings tranquil and the hosts are delightful and accommodating. I look forward to returning. – BL – November 2013 –

Mona & Svend – Denmark – Jan 2013 - *****

“Absolutely FANTASTIC!” If you are wanting quality service and an exceptionally comfortable holiday – This is the place to stay! In a nut shell, we shall endeavour to return here. With friends, family, and each other. I highly recommend The Keri keri orchid grove country lodge - 10/10, 5 stars, excellence! JM and QS - Auckland –  Jan 2013 – *****

Beautiful setting, excellent personalised service in luxury accommodation. We would definitely recommend Orchid Grove to family and friends and if we visit Kerikeri in the future stay again. Thanks Henry and Michele! – D Rasiah – Dec 2012 – *****

Henry and Michelle were the perfect hosts. Michelle could not do enough for us, she went out of her way to keep our unit spotlessly tidy, even though we have two messy kids. Meticulously presented fresh linen each day was delightful. We found ourselves at Kerikeri at the end of our holiday and, although rainy, it was just the relax we needed. Sitting in the (strangely Australian) Eucalyptus forest with baby Quails running around was quite surreal. Especially when Henry cranked up the outdoor spa and sauna. The kids loved the beautifully appointed library and DVDs on offer in the main house. We sincerely appreciated the care and attention from Henry and Michelle and wish them every continued success. – Stayed as a Family – Dec 2012 – *****

My husband and I stayed at the Orchid Grove Country Lodge, for 2 nights. Driving down the long driveway, off the main road, the suspense to see the place, was getting a little too much for the both of us.When we finally saw it, it was mesmerizing.  Serene, tranquil, peaceful, and breathtaking surrounding outside, with the elegant furnishings inside to match.  The service was outstanding and we highly recommend this place to people who need to relax and rejuvenate. – J Lusk – Dec 2012 *****

10 of us stayed for the Kerikeri half marathon and what a find. Luxury beds and linen, beautiful room and outlook. Michele went out of her way and assisted us with restaurant recommendations and local knowledge. We had a fantastic weekend and would not hesitate to return. Love the bush setting. – Annabel S – Auckland – Nov 2012 *****

Henry and Michele are delightful hosts – friendly and attentive but not invasive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the beautiful lodge – we wouldn’t change a thing. I shall come back just for the breakfast!! Thank you. – Tess – Kamo – June 2012 *****

Thank so much Michele and Henry. What a wonderful place to totally relax. Accommodation spotless, decor extremely tasteful. Breathless surroundings and we totally enjoyed the spa and sauna. Look no more, definitely 5 stars!!! GB – Auckland – Jan 2012 *****

Thanks Michele and Henry we had a wonderful stay with you over New Year. You guys really do have the winning formula, we were really impressed with your warm welcome and “nothing is a problem” attitude. We highly recommend Orchid Grove to other travellers and suggest you partake of the lodge meals. Michele really is a great chef and Henry, what can I say about your breakfast!!! – Marianne and Justin – Wellington NZ – Dec 2011 *****

STOP GOOGLING AND BOOK NOW – It really is that simple – stop googling and book Orchid Grove now. You will not find a more perfect place to stay in Kerikeri. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, a quality I always look for and insist on receiving. The location is perfect for exploring the Bay of Islands. During my stay I tried really hard to find something negative about Orchid Grove, but I couldn’t, it’s faultless.Seriously, don’t waste time agonising on where to stay, if you’ve found Orchid Grove you really have found the best place to stay in the Bay of Islands. You have found paradise. Chris B – Dec 2011 *****

Thanks for a first class experience- best place we have stayed so far in our travels. Great facilities, service, views and food… would recommend Orchid Grove Country Lodge to anyone! Michelle and Henry are lovely people who offer a homely yet modern accommodation. 5 stars!!! – Chris H *****
