Very much enjoyed this property in Kaikoura. Kevin was friendly upon arrival, and had useful local tips. We appreciated that he helpfully informed us that there was indeed no transfer offered by the Dolphin Encounter (our travel agency messed up) because it saved us the stress of waiting for a ride that would never come. Agree with earlier reviews that this property is nicer than what you would think of as a "motel"; I would describe it as more on par with a mid-range hotel. While the doors open to the outside like motel set-ups, the room interior was more hotel-like, with modern and updated furnishings and fixtures. There was a small table outside our room (on the upper level) so that we could enjoy a takeout dinner with a nice view. Also noticed a communal grill; next time we would love to get some local seafood from a market to cook ourselves for dinner! The property is located on a busy trafficked street, and not in walking distance to the whale watch/dolphin encounter ir the "main street" with the restaurants and shops; however, this is not an issue with a rental car. Overall, we recommend this place to stay.
