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

Regarding hotels, apartments, BnB's, it happens so often that you are seduced by the photos you see on a catalog or on a website and so you book there. When you get there and see the reality, it is often much less good. In the case of Bendamere BnB, the gorgeous photos on their website show the exact reality of... More

I doubt you'll find accommodation in Kaikoura with a better view than Bendamere house. We had a brief but very pleasant trip. Our room was just as described and Julie went out of her way to make sure our stay was a pleasant one.

We stayed at Bendamere House for 1 night and wish we spent more time here. Really enjoyed a glass of wine at the balcony overlooking beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The B&B is conveniently located at about 10-15 walk from the railway station and many bars/cafes. Friendly and helpful hosts. The continental breakfast was nice as well. Would highly... More

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
