Anchor Inn is an older motel that has been well restored and updated just outside Kaikoura. The rooms meet today's standards (like Hampton Inn or Courtyard), and the location across the road from the beach is excellent. Wifi was free, but the log-in screen kept interrupting us every few minutes and made us think that we were about to be charged, even though we weren't. The continental breakfast is delivered to the room based on a menu filled in the night before. The motel does not have a dining room and does not offer a hot breakfast. Our "upgraded" room did have a small kitchen, so the Anchor Inn would be good for those who want to cook a bit.
