After finding ourselves double booked at our original accommodation we weren't very hopeful of finding anywhere dog friendly at 5pm on a Friday afternoon but the visitor centre put us onto this motel and we couldn't have been happier. The staff were really welcoming, and the two bedrooms comfortable and roomy. It's a little old fashioned but clean, and the... More

Directly facing the beach. Very handy to the town for restaurants and better than the average motel. Staff helpful. Ideal for a stopover when passing through. Price very reasonable $135. Would stop here again next time.

I stayed here with my two friends. We had the room on the sea front (10) which offered stunning views out to sea. The proprietor owns two tiny griffon dogs and they all offered a warm welcome. A small bottle of fresh milk was provided and we were able to park next to our accommodation. My friends had the double... More

Great location. Rooms were nice a spacious, but it could do with more couches, as a room for up to 5 people only had a couch for 2-3 people. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the motel us nice and close to town

Note that I only give a place a 4 or 5 if it's exceptional - I still recommend a stay here. Cozy 2 bedroom for a young family of 4. 5min walk to town. Sounds of the beach (and a view) and away from the traffic noise that a lot of other Kaikoura motels have. Loved it with a old... More

We arrived unbooked & grabbed the 2nd last available unit. Meredith, who greeted us was an absolute bubbly pleasure to meet. The unit was large, quiet & well equipped. Will we stay here again??? Hell yes, we will be very disappointed if when we next stay in Kaikoura we can't stay here. Thank You Meredith

We booked this hotel via Tourist Information Office of kaikoura when we did our Whale Watching cruise. We only stayed for one night in a two bedrooms unit. Clean and comfortable bedding. It was quite cold and we appreciate the heated bed. If you do not have car, it is unlikely convenient as it is not so close to restaurants.... More

We turned up late in the day without a reservation. we got a two bedroom unit... The rooms adjoined with a sliding partition between the two. the beds were very comfortable, and the area very quiet. We got a fabulous recommendation for dinner, and the next morning the owners stopped by to make sure that we knew that a popular... More

The beach was just over the road, so great scenery on your door step. I had a self contained studio unit. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. I have stayed here a few times and have always felt at home. The hosts were great and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks for a great stay.
