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... More

This motel unit was fairly spacious with a well appointed kitchen and nice bathroom. The beds were comfortable and internet access worked well. The lady who checked us in was pleasant and showed us the room. The unit was clean; the only drawback was the laundry was not available. All in all, a good night's rest for part of our... More

This was the first hotel coming into the city. The staff was awesome and showed us the rooms before we decided to stay. The bed was very comfortable. The room was large enough and it had a kitchenette. The train was loud when it came by but that is about it. The staff helped us find a place that is... More

Spent one night here on our drive back to Picton and we were the only guests for the night. Not sure if the motel is new or newly renovated but room furniture very good and probably the most comfortable bed we have had in our ten day sun NZ. Bathroom had cupboard for storing toiletries unlike some where they go... More

The room was clean and functional and that's where it ends. Didn't see a smile or a friendly face after staying two nights. The place is also very scruffy. Old car mats draped over the rocks at the entrance way, soggy towels and empty bottles in the gardens. Not the look of a motel in a major tourism destination. The... More

Thank you for your comments. I like to spend time with our guests and talk about their travels. We have been rather busy and sometimes we get caught up in the running of the motel and can't talk to every guest we have staying with us. The one old car mat has been left behind by who knows. I removed... More

This motel is located on the main highway where the speed limit drops. The traffic noise is terrible. We thought it would die down as the evening wore on, but the truck traffic never stops. As the speed limit changes right at the hotel, you hear the trucks downshifting and it feels like they are in the room with you.... More

Thank you for your feedback. You're right about the windows. Once closed the noise goes away. Double glazed. I shall make a change to the compendium in the room to let our guests know that we have fans available if required. That would have suited your situation and would have made your night more agreeable. Unfortunately we live in a... More

It's a little bit out of town, but most guests will have a car so that shouldn't be a problem. Spacious and comfortable with a good breakfast. Recommended. Our satnav wasn't very helpful in locating the hotel - too many Beach Roads I think - so use a map instead!

Good value in Kaikoura that is a smaller city. Limited Internet that was common in NZ. We would recommend this hotel as there are a limited number of hotels in Kaikoura. Nice kitchenette with a small refrigerator, but adequate for our own breakfast.

Lovely quiet, clean and spacious room! Friendly and helpful staff. What more could you ask for? Everything was provided with no fuss. The bathroom and kitchenette had everything you need for a short stay. Even free wifi was available throughout the motel area.
