“Nikau Lodge - Beautiful views and an enjoyable stay.”
Reviewed October 27, 2010

Upon entering Nikau Lodge we were warmly greeted by Jane who gave us a tour of the accommodation. We stayed in the Dolphin Room which had a great view of the Kaikoura Ranges and the sea. The room was comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated.

We had very nice cooked breakfasts the two mornings we were there. Baked afternoon snacks were also left in the room in addition to tea and coffee. Beer and wine were also offered and readily available.

Jane and Quentin were very attentive hosts and provided helpful information about the whale watching tours, restaurants, and other local activities.

We would definitely consider the Nikau Lodge our first choice of accommodation when staying in the Kaikoura area again.

New owners Quentin and Jane, who have lived in the area for years and have all the inside knowledge, made our stay really special. We felt like one of the family, home baked cookies, great breakfasts and the best behaved Boarder Terrier we have met. Stunning view over the Bay and Mountains from the veranda. They gave us lifts around the local area, offered lots of advice - a fantastic B&B.

The new owners of Nikau Lodge were very accommodating. The house is located above town with a fabulous view. Quiet neighbourhood and an excellent breakfast made this a very pleasant stay for us.
