My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon, whilst touring idyllic New Zealand in January 2014. We booked on the basis of previous reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not let down.
John & Lynne, the owners, were extremely warm & friendly with us. They welcomed us into their own living area for a fantastic homemade breakfast. They helped us find a place to eat tea, and when we told them we were getting up at 4.30am for the (amazing) dolphin tour, they wanted to get up with us to cook us breakfast.
The B&B is very homely, with beautiful views of Kaikoura. Throughout our stay in New Zealand, we stayed at many wonderful hospitable B&Bs, but this was the best of the best. We can't wait to return one day.
