We booked this at the last minute, and for the price and season it was clean, tidy and had the facilities you would need for a stay. We were in the studio and it accommodated the two of us well. The service from all staff we met was great too. The place is a bit dated, which is why it... More

Friendly proprietors. The unit was clean and tidy and adequate. It is not large but ok. The motel is some 3-4kms from the town. The unit we had had a very squeaky floor so going to the loo at night was rather a noisy affair. Ok for an overnight stay. It is on the main road and even though we... More

We were double booked using booking.com. The owner kindly suggested another motel...one that was far from nice! If you are double booked, chose one yourself, don't follow their recommendations. There are plenty of other places nicer than where we were sent!

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Generally when there is a double booking, the motelier will have to look for an accommodation for the customer. However the customer does not have to accept it if it is not up to their expectation. During the summer season, Kaikoura motels are very busy, there may be plenty... More

Nice and tidy. Relatively good value for Kaikoura, possibly because is a little out of the center of town, but this did not worry us. Got good advice from the manager about places to visit and eat - happy to recommend.

We booked 2 nights here over Christmas. Our family of 6 stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. It was spacious and clean and nestled in tidy grounds with a children's playground on site (which whilst basic, my 3 all loved). The staff here are very friendly and invited us to a BBQ on Christmas Day...even gave us a card. It... More

Clean and tidy but on busy part of Beach Road and as we had the unit closest to the road it was quite noisy at night with traffic. Not sure if there were any other suitable rooms further away from road (we booked in July/Aug so assume not) but would would not book here again for noise reasons.

The hosts have maintained the rooms very well. It is a nice place to stay. Not very far from the major attractions and the city centre. We just stayed for one night, we liked the 2 bedroom accommodation, it is good for a family with kids, there is also an additional single bed in the living area so it can... More

Good accommodation, tidy, clean and friendly hosts. Good travelling distance to local shops, supermarket and tourist attractions. Nice to have a playground and space for the kids to kick a ball around
