Had a great stay at Bendamere House,beautiful views over Kiakoura and the mountains in the distance. There is just a short drive or walk if you are fitter to restaurants and beach. In the morning we had a tasty breakfast in the main house with Julie a friendly and cheerful host,who gave us blueberry muffins for the road.

My wife & I were fortunate enough to stay at Bendamere house B&B during our visit to NZ. The location just blew us away as the view was outstanding & worth the money alone. The room was clean, tidy & of a superior standard with free Wi Fi. There was off street parking & it was within walking distance of... More

An all round great experience - fantastic view of the mountains and sea, hospitable hosts, lovely breakfast and the lightest homemade shortbread... Warm comfortable room with a small fridge (which didn't hum during the night - if you stay in motels you'll know what I mean). We plan to stay here again.

I love when you book accommodation and it is better than what you expected. This is exactly how we felt when the door opened to our cute little room with the most spectacular views framed by snow capped mountains. Our host was delightful friendly and helpful but also gave us privacy. The shortbread was yum also thankyou and the breakfast... More

Arrived late in the dark at this charming B&B, took the "garden" view room only to wake up to stunning ocean and mountain views and a glorious sunrise. Breakfast was really good and the hospitality excellent. room was a good size, very modern and had a balcony overlooking the garden and ocean.

We booked 3 rooms for our party. Kerry & Julie were very welcoming and we really enjoyed their company at breakfast. There was plenty to eat and it was all very relaxed. The rooms were spacious and the big french windows provide plenty of light and uninterupted views of the Pacific. We played a bit of football out on the... More

Julie's father met us at the station and gave us a great welcome. Our room on the first floor of the annex had a superb view over the Pacific Ocean and breakfast the following morning was continental style and plentiful. We were driven down to the station for an excellent whale watching trip and were sorry that we had to... More

Bendamere House Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located on a hill, about a 10-minute walk to the seaside town of Kaikoura. The grounds of the house are beautiful, with its bedrooms looking out onto a wide expanse of lawn, followed by the rich turquoise of the sea and beyond that snowcapped mountain peaks. The lawn is the perfect place to... More

We stayed in room 5 for 2 nights. It is a converted garage decorated in shades of brown and reminded us of a budget motel rather than a luxury en suite bedroom. The bathroom is a corridor approx 1 metre wide, making it impossible to dry yourself after a shower without banging your elbows, or cleaning your teeth without banging... More
