Kaikoura is a beautiful place and the people are very friendly but this motel is a disgrace. We chose to stay here after receiving a speedy and friendly reply from the owner. The price wasn't the cheapest in Kaikoura but it looked and sounded great in the ad.
The gardens were weeds, The building was a badly altered old house that was dirty and run down. The owner is based at the motel next door as this is where we had to go to check in and pay the bill. We even had to line up to complain when checking out. Driving around there looks to be plenty of nice places to stay, I suggest you find one of them and avoid this place like the plague. The mould in the shower was not the worst aspect of this place. Unfortunately the most memorable part of our visit to Kaikoura, but take it away and the Crayfish were beautiful, the scenery stunning and the wildlife great.
