Great place, excellent value for money, the room was clean and tidy, a bit dated. Staff/owner was very happy and pleasant. I will certainly will be back. Handy to town, beach across just across the road.

Jo and Brad upgraded our two night stay from a studio to a two-bedroom unit which had a complete kitchen with large fridge -extremely clean and tidy with very comfortable beds. Units located down a driveway off the main road - so nice and quiet. Jo could recommend places to eat and places to visit. Very friendly and homely place to stay.

Made a very random spontaneous trip to Kaikoura and after getting no service from motel next door wandered here and was greeted with enthusiasm and given a fair rate for a nights stay plenty of tea and coffee in the room with enough milk for one person and helpful tips on where to eat dinner. Room is spacious and notified immediately of plumbing work being done saving me the embarrassment of a cold waterless shower haha

Really disappointing stay here. On the positive side, it's across the road from the beach and the wi-fi worked well. That's where the good part ends. The room was old and grotty and felt more like the sort of guesthouses I stayed in when I was a backpacker. Everything was dated, the carpet filthy, the bathroom beyond basic and everything felt so tired from the old and tatty sheets on the bed, the thin towels etc. Our stay was not helped by people in the adjacent room grazing their car up against the concrete outside our room at 5:30 AM. Not the proprietor's fault, of course, but some of the people staying there struck us as dodgy. Even if this room was only $80 / night, I would have been disappointed. It was just plain grotty and did nothing to make our stay in Kaikoura one to remember.
