I am not normally inclined to leave reviews, however when a service provider uses unethical methods to extract more money from its patrons I feel compelled to provide appropriate warnings to others. This week after a long recovery from an injury we decided to book a stay in Kaikoura to celebrate a milestone. We found a 2 bedroom apartment online for $588 for 2 nights and contacted the Kaikoura Waterfront apartments by phone to support local businesses and book direct. I explained that the accommodation was advertised on booking.com for $550; I was offered the booking for $525 and happily accepted and provided my details. However when I received confirmation by email the bill was for $624, not as agreed. I responded by email to get a resolution to the mistake but did not receive a reply. The next day I followed up with a phone call to Michelle, who was not very friendly and a refused to honour our agreement. I will not be booking at this establishment again as management attempted to charge me more than the agreed amount and reading other reviews confirms this is common practice at this establishment.

Our family of 3 recently stayed here and it was certainly the highlight of our South Island holiday. The apartments were amazing with stunning sea views. Exceptionally clean with everything you could want for an overnight stay. We just wished we could have stayed longer. Would highly recommend this outstanding accommodation. We will be back!
