On a quiet day in July, coming from an awesome Wale Watch, we visited the pub of the hotel. It felt like a cozy bar back home. Only the beautiful view was somehow different! We shared a very big tasty Pita Bucket accompanied by (of course) a delicious NZ Sauvignon Blanc. The man behind the bar was very hospitable. After... More

Paid $90 for double room with basin through I-site while on cycling trip. Shared shower and toilet. Old western pub some 10-20 mins walk from central Kaikoura. Accommodation was perfect for me. Professional service and room with shared facilities included all I needed. Restaurant and bar downstairs was a bonus. Sea views are lovely. Would definitely stay again.
