Wow what a great place. Modern individual cottages with their own parking, deck and garden looking out to beautiful mountains. Inside the cottages are lovley. They look to be recently refurbished, with a few extra bonus mod cons, and all double glazed, with decent free Wi-fi. We were in number 6 at the back, and probably had the best outlook.... More

Booked two units for one night having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor. The site was very easy to locate being just off the main highway but reasonably close to all amenities. On arrival we were greated in the most friendly manner by the owner. Both units were very clean, spacious and well equipped. My unit had lovely views of the... More

Stayed at Kaikoura Cottages for one night on our way home from Christchurch. Beautiful rooms, perfectly clean and very comfortable. Close to everything and free wifi which was great. Kids area outside with tramp, swings & a slide. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend and will stay again if we visit Kaikoura.

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently over the new years period in one of their two bedroom cottages. We were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of accommodation. The unit is spacious, has everything you need, and is fairly modern. Service was faultless and easy. We can imagine that the view from the porch out front would be... More

Managed to book for a night on our way home from Nelson last minute. Owners were very helpful and friendly! Units are very clean, nice and spacious and have everything you need. Plenty of parking as we had two boats with us. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. Thank you!

The cottage itself is so spacious and clean. The facilities are in good condition and we love it so much. Beds are comfy and we have everything we need. Self service laundry available. The owners are so helpful and friendly. One thing that we feel a bit inconvenient is we are not allowed to cook seafood in our cottage kitchen.... More

Very friendly staff who offered us some dvds to watch for the night, cute cottages, very modern, awesome bed, sofa and heater! Would stay again, well priced, a little way from town, but that wasn't a problem. Thanks!

We stayed for 3 nights and the cottage had everything we needed. We had a 5 year old along who was engaged in the evenings with the cartoons available via reception. We intentionally stayed away from the main hub but this is not that far. The trampoline on-site was also put to use by our younger one. Recommend to anyone... More

What a great motel - it is great to have your private space with no adjoining walls. It was quiet, and the views to the mountains capped in snow were amazing. We noticed that the gardens were very well cared for, and each cottage had its own garden area. The cottage was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. The... More

An absolutely perfect place to stay in Kaikoura. I wouldn't ever look for anywhere else. I have never before experienced such a clean, comfortable motel. The previous night, we had stayed in a hotel, which we paid a lot more for, and there was absolutely no doubt that this motel was superior. Great job! :)
