This motel is spotlessly clean, super comfortable with little extra touches and attention to detail that add to the comfort. We have stayed in lots of places all over the world and this is one of the best. Lyn is an awesome host.

Our room was immaculate, comfortable bed, and we woke up each morning to stunning views of the ocean and mountains from the motel's location on the Esplanade. Lyn is a very friendly and helpful host. We were going out for tea at the Pier Hotel and Lyn arranged the booking for us and for their courtesy van to collect us and bring us home again, really good food and great service all round, thanks! We would definitely recommend this motel to others.

Have always stayed elsewhere in Kaikoura, but stopped at Anchor Inn last week. Comfortable large rooms, wonderful view, and Lyn is a great host. And there rear enclosed car park is excellent for security when transporting expensive EMTB's on your car carrier. Will always make this place my Kaikoura house in future.
