We paid an extra $25 to upgrade to a sea view room. It was lovely to sit on the balcony and look out at the sea. The room was very clean, tidy and well appointed. We only stayed for a night to whale watching the next day. It was lovely to get to stay here and I could have happily stayed another night.

We are travelling around NZ and arrived in Kaikoura without a booking and referred to Admiral Court Motel from another motel. We booked in and stayed two nights. Lucky us, views of snow capped mountains, super clean, massive TV, short walk to waterfront and restaurant. Really friendly and hospitable owners. Couldn't ask for more. Will definitely use again and happy to recommend.

We stayed at the Admiral Court Motel as it was not in the busy downtown area. The place was top notch. We had a great room with a deck that looked out to the water & the mountain range in the distance (they had snow on them the next morning-no wonder it was a nippy night). The owners were friendly, the room was clean & had everything in that we required. We would certainly recommend.

We arrived off the street and got last unit available. It was an older style unit but had all the necessary facilities. Good bed and ranchslider access from both living and bedroom. Good outside spaces. Very quiet and partial view of sea. Great value for money. Would stay again but not in that unit which was under motel owners accommodation and they could be heard above.
