Lynn and Paul were very hospitable and the rooms were great. Very spacious, comfortable beds and you can't beat the view. Lynn is a wealth of information about where to go and eat and even called us a courtesy bus for our dinner. This motel is reasonably priced and very comfortable, you can't beat it when coming to Kaikoura

Spacious, clean with a great bed. The location couldn't be better and we had an amazing view from our room. The owners are very friendly and gave us some great local advice. Our only complaint would be that there are more than 50 Sky TV channels but no movie channels.

Hi Voyage Thank you for your time to write a lovely review. We picked the sports package cause the KIWI are sports crazy. That is why we have free movies for you to watch in the office thanks Lyn.

Recently spent 2 nights at this lovely motel. It would have to be the most functional motels of any of our 57 days travelling the length of the South Island . Room (9) looking directly over to the ocean, the most beautiful sunrise, and snowy mountain tops. everything was spotless and we particularly noted a luggage rack large enough for two suitcases. Great lighting in the bathroom, and good bed lights. The owner Lyn was very welcoming and organized for us to be picked up and taken to dine at The Pier a restaurant just along the road in an historical building. All in all a delightful two days in Kaikoura.
