My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in upstairs room that was like a studio suite with balcony. Great room with really nice bathroom, plenty of space for storage and had cappuccino machine. Breakfast was good and we ate on balcony. The lodge is up a small hill but easy walk to Whale Watch and town. Highly recommend.

We travelled through New Zealand during February 2014 and if we had one regret it was that we only spent one night at the Lemon Tree. We received a very warm welcome from the owner and were taken to a most delightful room on the first floor with views across Kaikoura. The bathroom was modern and well equipped. Breakfast served...

Lemon Tree Lodge was the last stop on our whistle stop tour of South Island before driving to Picton and the North. We were looking forward to this stop because we had booked to go Whale Watching. However much we enjoyed that, it could not overshadow the wonderful welcome we had from Rosemary. The room was stunning, very light and... More

We recently spent 2 nights in this wonderful spot. Rosemary and Ivo made us feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them. The accommodation was spotless and the view over the ocean was something to die for!

We were greeted by the warmest of welcomes by Rosemary and Ivo, who clearly take great pride in the hotel and services they provide. In our view this must be the best location in Kaikoura, particularly for a romantic break, and or room was modern, spotlessly clean provided all the facilities we could have wished for. If you enjoy high... More

We have just completed 29 days touring around NZ and getting round to writing reviews for the best and worst places we stayed at. The Lemon Tree Lodge was in the top 4! Ivo and Rosemary have created a very special place in paradise. We stayed in the Lavender room and just loved it. The view, the tranquilityy, the quality... More

We stayed in the Lavender Room: large, bright, with king; absolutely delightful. This room is on the upper floor (“first floor”), via narrow stairs, which were easily navigated when the inn keeper cheerfully helped bring up our luggage. Décor is modern; very nice bathroom and shower; minimal refridgerator and counter space; has a balcony with a small table & two... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this Swiss couple's (Ivo & Rosemary) ultra stylish establishment. Our room (George) had a private balcony with a stunning view over the beautiful garden out across the ocean. And the room itself was superbly fitted out, with fridge, TV, comfortable bed, modern coffee- making machine, even a wood burning stove. Our hosts were... More

What a find, nestled on cliff top overlooking Kiakoura Ivo and Rosie Marie have built a delightful house made up of luxurious rooms with outlook over the Pacific. Lovely king sized bedroom suite with deck outside and hot tub adjacent. Every possible service provided for the stay in a lovely garden situation.

Firstly this is not the cheapest accommodation on Kaikoura but wow, it must be the best for the price, we loved it when we stayed there on the night of our wedding anniversary. Our room was fantastic with a lovely bedroom with patio doors onto a very extensive timber balcony/terrace, there is then a linking lobby (where you can dump... More
