Location was perfect for us as we were going to a wedding north of town. Friendly staff and nice clean rooms. Studio unit was good size for our portacot and looks like it would be a good place to stay with kids admire grassy area in the middle. Would stay again!

Away from the town centre but near enough for all facilities with supermarkets and restaurants to hand- clean and with all facilities to hand with hosts more than willing to help- this base would suit any travelling on the go

The unit was well presented and equipped and suitably comfortable for our needs. Our only gripe was the proximity to the road (State Highway 1) and railway line. It is also not as easy to get to the beach as suggested and is also a very long walk from town. We knew of its position in advance as it is made this clear on their website, but we failed to appreciate how many heavy lorries (and a few trains) would pass by during the night. If you're a good sleeper, then this is a good place to stay, but if you are a light sleeper like us, then you won't get much sleep at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room furthest from the road.

We loved the managers, very friendly and welcoming, loved the view of the mountains, loved the kids play area. The rooms were a little small but the facilities top notch. the grounds are lovely but it is a little way from the main part of Kaikoura. It is on the highway however noise wasn't an issue.

The motel was OK but the plug socket in the bedroom had seen better days and did not work so therefore the bedside lights did not. Cleaning in detail needed attention especially around the skirting boards! Helpful and pleasant staff.
