Good place, if you come in from the North, first hotel you see or the last as you travel from the south (obviously!) cafe opposite and also a short walk over to the beach across the rail line. A little noisy from the road till about 2200hrs, then settles. Need to drive to the town centre but a pleasant, clean... More

The location is very good and the property and room is very clean and comfortable. The staff was always friendly and helpful. It was a very good place for my one night stop. I will certainly stay here again if I am in the area.

First, manager told me he was fully booked and could nto find my reservation. Somehow, booking.com had placed it under my maiden name from 50 years ago! No apology.Strange Then, after registering he told me there would be no room servicing on Sunday. I did ask for towels and cleaning of waste baskets and that happened. The final interaction was...

We were fully booked that's correct. You checked in 2 hours before check-in time, when we were still cleaning. As you had no transport I thought let's check this lady in quickly so I can carry on cleaning. You gave me an incorrect name, so how could I find your reservation? I asked if you used any other surnames and... More

Great value on the outskirts of Kaikoura, tho only 5 mins drive from the centre of town. Light and airy with spacious rooms, a practical kitchenette and large bathroom. Easy access and plenty if parking. Friendly owner and dvds for rainy days. I'd happily stay here again.

A bit far from the center but it doesn't really matter in kaikoura if you have a car. Rooms are spacious, price is cheap, it is clean and cosy although a kittle old and you have complimentary dvd for those rainy days. Owner is nice and friendly. Surely a good place to spend the night in kaikoura

Well appointed unit with comfortable bed, good parking and helpful owners. We would definitely recommend a stay here. Its a little out of town but an easy drive to all amenities in Kaikoura. Great place to stay to access bike trails.

We stayed here on a whim at the end of July. It is true that the motel is right at the end of town, but it was the right end for us as we were going to the seal colony north of Kaikoura the next. It may be away from the town centre, but there is a supermarket and bars/restaurants... More

We recently drove from Dunedin to Wellington and onto Taupo to catch up with family and friends. Kaikoura was a very convenient stopover for us on such a long drive. On the outskirts of the town this motel was very comfortable and warm. Not ultra modern, but had all the facilities needed and very attractive pricing through a 'Grabone' deal.... More

Motel hosted by Gus and Larisa is like a FOUR Star motel. It has lovely modern decor- motel rooms, soft bed, excellent personal service and great kitchen facilities. The hosts are a very sweet couple who are knowledgeable about the local area and can get discounts for trips. Also we loved the cooked breakfasts, daily paper, Sky TV and of... More
