We have been travelling around the South Island for the past ten days in a camper van with our two sons. This was our final stop before a ferry crossing the next day. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Sizeable rooms, light, bright, clean, fresh and the views!! On check in the super helpful owner recommended The Pier Hotel for dinner. Wow! So much wow!! My husband is an avid diver and he said it was the best meal he’s ever had, crayfish, paua, fish, mussels, whitebait. All of it stunning. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone. We will be back for sure.

Arriving at the Anchor Inn felt like coming home. We were arriving a bit late, but Lyn said "no worries, just call when you leave Christchurch". And true to her word, she was waiting up for us. Check in was seamless, and the overview of the room and facilities comprehensive. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the water pressure in the shower strong and the plunger coffee provided was excellent. The motel is located a short walk from restaurants and bars, but if you don't want to walk, Lyn can arrange a free shuttle to the best restaurant in town. There are handy seats outside the rooms so you can take in the awesome views with a cup off coffee, or glass of wine. Thanks to Lyn, my birthday was made extra special, I will remember her singing happy birthday to me for a

Fabulous 2 night stay in Unit 3. Best motel in Kaikoura, lovely beachside property with great views of the sea and the mountains. Lynn & Paul are terrific hosts, nothing a bother for them. Booked us in for dinner at the Pier Hotel and arranged a shuttle pickup. We will be back.
