We stayed here for two nights to attend a family wedding. It was the holiday season and a last minute booking, however the price of the room was too much for the motel. Upon arriving, the service was fine, though nothing spectacular. We were given milk, a map, and the option to pay now or at check out. We were given directions to town (5 minutes down the hill). Good points - it met our expectations of a motel room, ie the room was very clean, equipped with essentials, and despite the information provided, we received fresh towels for the second night. Bad points - the bed wasn't very comfortable, the bathroom window needs a blind to block out the light (that blinded a sleeping person if an early riser opened the bathroom door), the shower pressure impossible to wash hair in, and the temperature of the water was affected by other units using water, and the units were noisy (lots of street noise). It was nothing spectacular, and most definitely not value for money at $145 per night. We expect not to visit Kaikoura again, however if we did, we would find somewhere else to stay.
