We were in the old block which was very tired but clean and enough space. The view was magnificent however no privacy from other guests walking past the front. Kitchen had everything you needed. Bathroom small but functional and clean. Easy walk into town and...More

The Whale watch office is at the Kaikoura Railway Stn approx. 2.8km to the north of the Panorama Motel.
