We stayed here two nights while touring the area. The studio was quite large and comfortable, with good seating and lighting for reading. Quiet and good location.

I have stayed here a number of times for a week or 10 days - I always take a front room with a view of the sea - more expensive but worth it - especially in winter when it's stormy - rooms are super comfortable - excellent heat pumps - good bathroom with jets in bath and plenty of hot water - nice kitchen - very good beds and a couch and armchairs and tabs creates a little lounge area by the French doors - walking distance to town and to the coastal walkway - cleaning staff are helpful - I didn't like having to pay to have wireless access to Internet in my room - should be provided in a five star hotel I felt

Room Tip: Get a room with a view

We got two walk in rooms when we arrived late into Kaikoura. Good clean accommodation with adequate parking. We had the rooms to the side (the sea facing ones were much more expensive) and had a great dinner at the White Morph restaurant next door (they have some great wine pairings). A really good option if you are in Kaikoura!

Very pleasant motel with well maintained, clean, large rooms with full facilities, including kitchenette, microwave, fridge etc. Only rooms in the front have sea views to die for, so we had to get out and have a stroll outside, on the waterfront, to enjoy the area.

Restaurants and cafes are nearby, including an excellent one next door to the hotel. The manager at the desk was most helpful and cheerful at all times adding to the pleasant atmosphere of the place. The hotel does not provide internet facilities in the rooms but guests are given the option of buying wifi time from a local provider at $2 for 20 MB, adequate for emails and brief news updates.

A good accommodation option at this part of the NZ coast.

Room Tip: Try to get a front room with a sea view

I found this Motel first class, with friendly management. The restaurant accommodated us with a last minute booking at end of their opening time, then they produced a very nice meal. We found the bed extremely comfortable. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in Kaikoura.
