          Upon arriving in Kaikoura, looking for a place to stay we were lucky enough to get 2 nights here. Lyn was very helpful and friendly. Great rooms, fantastic views. Enjoyed the 2 nights here and would stay here again.

          The lovely, friendly Aussie proprietor created a very pleasing impression on our arrival. This motel is in an ideal location, just over the road from the beach and the views are stunning. Spacious, clean, well-appointed rooms and it's within walking distance of some good restaurants.

          Hi, I'll be vacationing in and around Kaikoura in February 2017 and was wondering what the area is like after the earthquake. I have reservations at the Anchor Inn and have three days planned there. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.
