My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights while on our honeymoon. The accommodation was a gorgeous little bed and breakfast that was only a few minutes out of town in a spectacular location. The host and hostess were extremely friendly and were very helpful in regards to where to go in Kaikoura. Perfect little place for couples wanting... More

Great looking old farmhouse on the ocean with a continental breakfast that is more like a full breakfast. Very nice host and hostess, clean and cozy room. Be sure to take in the sheep shearing - it's well worth it. Short ride to town. Easy-to-find location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Point. Its a warm and welcoming home and Gwenda and Peter are very hospitable. Our room overlooked the rear gardens which are lovely as are all the gardens and the views from the front veranda are amazing overlooking the ocean and mountain range. Our room was cozy and very comfortable and the bathroom... More

We stayed in this quiet, nice B & B for 2 nights. There are 2 rooms one in the front overlooking the sea and ours at the back overlooking the garden. Our bathroom and bedroom are spacious, clean and bright. The B & B is out of town, 5 - 10 minutes by car and 1 hour on foot. There... More

Stayed in rear bedroom - very tired and poor toiletries supplied, wooden toilet seat.. Cat sleeping on the bed on arrival - very bad if you are allergic to cats. Not a purpose built B and B so family members and others are present - not very relaxing environment. For the money very over-priced and certainly not 4 stars! Not... More

This B&B is quite out of town but with beautiful views and very quiet. Family issues meant that the lounge wasn't able to be used as the fire wasn't lit so it was cold. The room was OK with a comfortable bed. It was very clean and had a nice bathroom. Breakfast was basic but presented with care from Peter... More
