This was an average hostel, with the good standards that I would expect for the price of the room. Great location if you arrive by bus as the hostel is directly opposite the bus stop. Well equipped and tidy kitchen. Showers were pretty basic. Roughly a 20 minute walk to go on one of the whalewatching tours, which is well worth doing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the heart of Kaikoura with uninterrupted views of the ocean and mountains is the cosy Fish Tank Lodge. Beds are seriously comfortable with crisp clean linen already made up for you and the national buses stop right outside the front door. The kitchen is fully equipped and the lounge warm and cosy with some awesome artwork which is a must see! Feel right at home here with free tea and coffee and a warm kiwi welcome to Kaikoura. ... more less
