The view is amazing , breathtaking. This B n B is slightly out of Kiakura but that is a benefit. Accommodation is clean and tidy but quite dated and needing a bit of decorating. Breakfast was very sociable , sitting together with other guests in the main house. Good to discuss the day ahead. Anne was very kind and helpful... More

Bendamere and Julie both lived up to their lofty TripAdvisor ratings. Our room was on the second level and had an outstanding view of the gorgeous back yard and Pacific. The room was large, clean, and well appointed. Julie was an excellent host. Breakfast was on time and delicious. Be sure to say hello to Diesel (the cat) while you/re... More

Bendamere House stands on the hill just above the town of Kaikoura. Shops and restaurants are just a short walk or drive down the hill into the town. We stayed just one night in the Hartnell Room, a first floor room with patio window and terrace looking out over the extensive grounds and with uninterrupted views of the Pacific. The... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at Bendamere for one night on our trip up the coast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The view from the house is breathtaking since it is situated on a hill overlooking the coast with a large grassy yard. It is, also, an easy walk down hill to restaurants and shops. At... More

I stayed here one night on our way to the Omaka air show in Blenheim. Our host was very kind and accommodating when we arrived incredibly late (as the airline had lost our luggage). We had a great night's rest in a comfortable bed and woke to a spectacular sunrise. The view is too good to stay such a short... More

We stayed one night in Kaikoura during our whirlwind tour of the South Island, and wished we could have stayed longer. Our cottage at the Bendamere B&B was spacious and comfortable, with a small balcony (adjoining with the guest next door) that provided a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. The grounds were beautifully maintained, the location was close to... More

Everything about Bendamere House was great. The grounds were like a private park with spectacular views of the black sand Kaikura bay. If you stay here rush to the room first and secret away the home made shortbread. Then you won't have to share. Breakfast was great and we enjoyed chatting with the other travelers.

We stayed 3 days in the Hartnell King room (one of the upper level rooms with a balcony). To sit there, with the sun on your face and a glass of wine in your hand is sheer bliss. The situation could not be bettered and we loved every minute. The room was extremely comfortable, very spacious and had a fridge... More

Very conveniently situated very the centre of Kaikoura and having the most spectacular views of the Pacific. You can actually sit on your balcony and watch the dolphins out to sea. The room is very well appointed with all that you could require. Breakfast is in the dining room and is certainly plenty to start you off for the day.... More

Absolutey perfect - we arrived into Kaikoura on the train and there was little sign of any way to get into town. We just rang Julia (who owns Bendamere with Kerry) and she popped down to collect us. Her place is only a few minutes from the station, and there is an easy pathway to walk down into town. It's... More
