You have from the lodge a magnificent view over the bay. The owners are very helpful. He is a cook, and he prepared for us a very nice meal with lobsters, which he had caught the same morning. Try the outdoor tub at the end of the day, with a drink and a magnificent view - enjoy life. Highly recommendable.

This B&B has an excellent location with great views. The couple who own it are helpful and friendly and it makes a good base for exploring the area.

We came to magical Kaikoura to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We chose the Lemon Tree Lodge based on a friend's recommendation and we loved it. The new owners are very friendly, warm, and attentive. The view from our ocean-view room was stunning and having breakfast on the deck outside our room overlooking the ocean was spectacular - we enjoyed it so much that we even had take out dinner on the deck! As others have mentioned, the hot tub with the view is an fabulous touch. Overall, an excellent experience and we will continue to recommend the Lemon Tree Lodge to all of our friends who come down to Kaikoura.

Perched on a cliff overlooking Kaikoura the views are simply stunning especially from the hot tub on the deck. Lovely gardens and choice of rooms all beautifully furnished. Generous breakfasts. Friendly and accommodating hosts

We were warmly welcomed by the new owner of this B&B. The B&B is at a hill so you have a beautiful view over the ocean. It is very nice that the hotel is not at the center of the village because it can be very crowded .
The room was very clean en neat. The room was not very large, but it is was good enough. The breakfast is served in the room so that was very nice.
We also sat in the jacuzzi, it was very nice to sit there with that loverly view!!

We ended our New Zealand trip at the Lemon Tree Lodge and it was just perfect! We had an ocean view room which had a balcony with stunning views! The rooms are very comfortable and the bathroom is fully equiped! The new owners are very friendly and helpfull! Breakfast is served in your room so you can enjoy it on your balcony! I highly recommend this B&B!

We chose this place based on reviews. However, when we arrived at 3-45pm the place was locked up - not a sole in sight. The place looked somewhat in need of gardening and cleaning. We went down to the local information centre and found out that the place was/is being sold and the owners are no longer in residence. This was confirmed when we spoke to a local just up the road. So . . . . . .. we have done our tariff because the phone number for Lemon Tree is no longer answering and gets redirected to another number which does not answer.
We know all the other reviews are glowing, but this is what happened to us. Not happy!

Our intention is to make The Lemon Tree Lodge the best it`s ever been. We took ownership about three weeks ago. We have been working on the landscape which was unattended for some time.It is important for us as new owners that all of our guest are completely satisfied with their stay at Lemon Tree Lodge. The phone number is still the same; however, we experienced problems on the days around the 14, Sept. 2009, all the calls were being transferred to the previous owners home number in error..This problem was resolved in 3 days. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused to our guests.Sometimes unexpected this can happen when changes are made.

Sincerely,

New Owners
