This motel is a real disaster. It is shabby, rundown and not very clean. The bungalow is an old house which has been converted, not at all successfully. It is very poorly equipped. Heaps of cupboards in the kitchen/living room but little in them. Furniture looked as if it came from a dubious second-hand dealer. No courtesy milk in the fridge. We did not stay on to sample the beds. Not allowed to park outside the door as the front unit in the house could block your car in the driveway.
This motel is highly overpriced for what is there. We wouldn't advise anyone to stay there when there are plenty of better places in Kaikoura. Be warned!
