I love when you book accommodation and it is better than what you expected. This is exactly how we felt when the door opened to our cute little room with the most spectacular views framed by snow capped mountains. Our host was delightful friendly and helpful but also gave us privacy. The shortbread was yum also thankyou and the breakfast... More

Arrived late in the dark at this charming B&B, took the "garden" view room only to wake up to stunning ocean and mountain views and a glorious sunrise. Breakfast was really good and the hospitality excellent. room was a good size, very modern and had a balcony overlooking the garden and ocean.

We booked 3 rooms for our party. Kerry & Julie were very welcoming and we really enjoyed their company at breakfast. There was plenty to eat and it was all very relaxed. The rooms were spacious and the big french windows provide plenty of light and uninterupted views of the Pacific. We played a bit of football out on the... More

Julie's father met us at the station and gave us a great welcome. Our room on the first floor of the annex had a superb view over the Pacific Ocean and breakfast the following morning was continental style and plentiful. We were driven down to the station for an excellent whale watching trip and were sorry that we had to... More

Bendamere House Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located on a hill, about a 10-minute walk to the seaside town of Kaikoura. The grounds of the house are beautiful, with its bedrooms looking out onto a wide expanse of lawn, followed by the rich turquoise of the sea and beyond that snowcapped mountain peaks. The lawn is the perfect place to... More

We stayed in room 5 for 2 nights. It is a converted garage decorated in shades of brown and reminded us of a budget motel rather than a luxury en suite bedroom. The bathroom is a corridor approx 1 metre wide, making it impossible to dry yourself after a shower without banging your elbows, or cleaning your teeth without banging... More

Bendamere is just 5 minutes walk from the centre of kaikoura but could be miles away. The view from the garden over the north bay to the distant snow capped mountains is magnificent. Most of the accommodation is in a purpose built annex to the house and is designed to a very high standard. Julie made us most welcome and... More

Perched just above town and a short walk to the main street, this is a lovely BnB with amazing water views. The hosts are very nice as well. The only draw back and why I give only 4 stars was the less than stellar breakfast. But, the view and location make this worth the stay.

If you like staying in B & B's you'll love this place. If you don't like B & B's you'll still place this place!

We liked this B&B. Very clean, spacious and views to die for. Parking is free, shower is hot and for taller people convenient hung up high and the bed is comfortable. It is located near town centre and you can easily walk to the restaurants and shops. Slightly negative was that our bed was located directly underneath a wall window... More

Thank you for your comments.We are pleased that you enjoyed our amazing bed and ocean and mountain views. We recently reviewed our curtains and found the chocolate brown thermal curtains we have put in have the best light block out that we could put in. Will certainly ask more customers but so far have had good favourable comments on this.... More
