My husband and I stayed for one night. We had prepaid for our room on Hotels.com. The woman that runs the front desk, who I also think is the owner, is incredibly rude. While checking in, she made us feel like we were bothering her. Once we settled in our room, we noticed an awful odour. Our room smelled like... More

Thank you for your comments. I have to apologize for the way you got treated by indeed my wife. The odour in your room was caused by a previous guest who decided to cook something spicy. We run an electric air freshener to eliminate the smells but sometime it takes a few days for an odour to completely vanish. My... More

Gus look,s after the hotel and the rooms were very good, ok it is on the highway but it is some $50 plus cheaper than a motel in town. So if you have bags of money you can get another location. The room was well provisioned, spacious, homely and owner operated, he is Dutch so not exactly a ball of... More

The hosts Gus and Larisa are the most helpful and friendly. They made our stay a wonderful memory. They provide brochures about the restaurancts and activities in the area, the brochures are handmade by them, I think. In the reception, they have the best maps including the whole South Island map. It would be so helpful if I got this... More

Larisa, a transplant from Russia, gives you a friendly greeting you when you walk into the reception area. The beds are comfortable, the rooms roomy, the kitchen facilities perfunctory but sufficient. But who cares? Man, what a view from your room (there are several rooms that you may need to walk out a few steps to get that view): snow-capped... More

The room itself was nice and modern and it was nice to be able to hire DVD's for free but if you want a room for sleep quality then this is not the place. We could hear the man and woman next door talking to midnight and then again at 7am. I don't understand when a motel only has 4... More

Thank you for your feed back. I've checked back through October where there were only 4 rooms booked but nobody was booked in a room next to one another (nor did I spot anybody from Launceston). That's exactly what we do, we keep a room free in between when we can. It may seem obvious at times, but it may... More

What you'd expect from a simple motel in a small town. No complaints...fair amenities and facilities. We'd had the urge to watch Lord of the Rings since being in NZ but it wasn't available in the motels free DVD hire range. We settled into our room when we got a knock of the door and the owner was there with... More

The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. Range of DVDs available to borrow for free and so free movies to watch on the TV. A little noisy at night as it's located on the highway. The lady who first served us when we checked in was not very friendly, she was on the phone whilst serving us. But the... More

Was clean and comfortable but as this is the last motel on the way out of town it sits right before the highway (100kms/h) starts...the trucks have already started going 100kms/h and you can hear it! They hadn't turned on the heater in the room and as we arrived in the evening it was cold! They did have wifi in... More

The Mediterranean is on the edge of town so makes for great long walks along the beach, which I loved. The hotel is extremely clean, I had everything I needed in the kitchenette and once I had the heating turned on for 10 minutes, it was lovely and cosy. The bed is amazing, so comfortable, lovely and warm with the... More

Not only clean etc, but the wi fi actually worked! The welcome was friendly, the heaters had been turned on before we arrived and the water was hot! The rooms are nicely decorated and have an up-to-date look and feel. There's even free DVD loan from Reception! Recommended. There's some road noise, but all the motels in Kaikoura are along...
