We stayed two nights at this very good BB. Very clean, perfect service, BEAUTIFUL surroundings. Lynne and John are very friendly. We warmly recommend the place to stay in and Kaikoura is so great! Anne and Leif from Sweden

Thanks to John and Lynne we enjoyed our short time in Kaikoura. We only wish we had a few extra days to stay! The room was clean and comfortable, and the views were BREATHTAKING! Our breakfast was delicious and we were so thankful that they were so accomodating to our schedule. Highly recommend!

In all of our travels it would be very, very hard to find a place that is more welcoming, clean, light and friendly. I cannot speak highly enough of Lynn & John and as for the views from the rooms and dinning room, just breathtaking. Then there is the garden which is so beautifully designed and relaxing.

Wonderful spot with great proprietors. We arrived later on an overcast day and found the place quite easily. The Proprietors, who are a lovely and accommodating couple, helped us to feel at home instantly and even upgraded our room (based on availability). The next morning we stepped out onto the terrace to an amazing sight...you could see the whole bay... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Austin Heights. A room upgrade and complimentary drink on arrival was much appreciated and a lovely way to start our weekend. Thanks to Lynn and John for their recommendations, and amazing breakfasts in the morning! We had plenty of energy to burn enjoying the attractions Kaikoura has to offer.

Austin Heights was our first stay in our two weeks travel in the South Island of NZ, and it started this unique and very memorable experience. The room we stayed in was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. John and Lynne, the hosts, were very kind and helpful. If by any chance we will visit Kaikoura a second time, Austin... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Love Kaikoura, but hate the noise of the traffic - here's the answer. Beautiful Austin Heights is situated on the Kaikoura Peninsula where it is peaceful and commands a stunning Panoramic view of the Kaikoura Mountain ranges, Pacific Ocean & Coastline. Only a five minute drive from the town center and all local attractions. Like the Whale-watch, Dolphin & Seal Encounters, handy to the beautiful Peninsula Coastal walkway & the Seal Colony. Lovely, spacious & sunny, apartments with a lovely decor, excellent quality beds. Opening directly out onto a long balcony with a Panoramic view of the Mountains & Pacific Ocean. Own kitchenette, fridge, microwave, tea & plunger coffee facilities. Private entrances & parking space. Austin Heights is surrounded in prize-winning Gardens. Lynne & John your friendly Kiwi Hosts have 15 years experience running their B&B and will make you welcome to Austin Heights. A special continental breakfast plus free range eggs is included in tariff plus all government taxes. Free WIFI available at all times. Complimentary pick-up & deliver to the bus or train with prior notice. ... more   less
