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

We stayed here at the last min as the b&b we booked in town double booked us. Motel was right on the main road as you come into Kaikoura so did have quite a lot of traffic noise at night and early morning. Room was clean and spacious... small kitchenette was well equipped. Free wifi was good.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Positives:- Room was a good size, good kitchen facilities and good free wifi. Friendly owners. Negatives:- A little noisy from road noise outside. A little way out of town, so no-where to walk to in evenings. Car parking outside our room was difficult at times - people parking in wrong place and taking up 2... More

We arrived in Kaikoira in a rain storm. The Mediterranean Motel was great because not only did they have free wifi, they provided free DVD check out at the front desk. They also had a microwave and plates/bowls so we could make some food in room while we ate dinner and watched movies since it rained the whole time we... More

Nice modern motel, comfortable bed and very clean. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful. All units are single storey and good car parking. The free wifi worked well. It is just off the main road and big trucks trundle past during the night. This was not a problem for us but it may be if you are a light... More

Quiet little single story motel tucked away at the northern end of this holiday resort. Operator very friendly and helpful. We arrived early in the afternoon after a shorter than normal drive. Walked down into the town and had a good look around. Standard sort of seaside resort with ice cream parlours bars and gift shops spread about. The area... More

This motel probably the best value for money, compared to all the motels we have stayed in N.Z. in the last month. Clean, spacious, bed good, modern,car parking. Closeness to city centre depends on where you come from.Anything within 5 kilometres is close for us.
