Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here on our trip through New Zealand. Well located for access to the main high street of Kaikoura, this is a lovely property with excellent views of the sea from our balcony. We had an upstairs room which was extremely comfortable. The buffet breakfast was good and Julie a lovely host. Happy to recommend.

Among the best accommodation we have stayed in in New Zealand. We had an upstairs room boasting a beautiful view of the gardens and bay framed by the Kaikōura ranges. I couldn’t stop drinking in the view from the balcony in the changing light. The room was beautifully decorated with comfy beds. Goes without saying it was spotlessly clean, but added extras included lovely fluffy robes and delicious homemade lemon shortbread. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit and granola followed by hot cheese & bacon croissant. Nice to chat with fellow travellers and share information & travel tips. Talking of travel tips, Julie gave us worthwhile information around where to eat and the best place to see the seals. We had a fantastic walk with the best views of the seals and their pups. Wish we could have stayed longer. Ps - take the AirKaikoura 40 minute whale watching flight - brilliant - & no more money than the packed whale watching boat.

This is B and B accommodation at its best. The room (for a family of three) was immaculate and had everything you could need. The property is lovingly maintained by the owners Kerry and Julie, who were also first class hosts. Friendly and helpful but never intruding on your time. The gardens are beautiful with a stunning view and the perfect place to relax. The property is very well situated in town but with a feeling of being far enough away from the hustle and bustle that meant you could return each evening and relax. All in all the best B and B I have ever encountered. In fact far better than many of the hotels I have stayed in.

Fantastic sea view room looking over the pleasant gardens and sea. Clean, tidy and comfortable bed. Used the balcony for the last of the sun. Breakfast filling and Julie kept us entertained with memories of years gone by and the dramatic events from the earthquake

Julie gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. The room was clean and had all the amenities needed. The breakfast was well prepared by Julie. The view from the balcony is also spectacular. We felt very impressive during our stay here.

This place is a delight. We had a first floor room; comfortable but not huge, with a view to die for, and a lovely balcony. Well located, easy to find, and a 5 minute walk into the centre. Lovely hosts: we had breakfast in their kitchen, made all the more homely by being joined by their two sons,who were home for the weekend.

Beautiful boutique hotel in a great position just above the town, with the most stunning views! We had one of 2 rooms on the first floor and it was fantastic! Very comfortable bed (which was a treat as I didn’t feel too good when we arrived). Julie made us very welcome and was interesting and helpful about where to go and what to see on our 2 night visit. The shortbreads were great too! Our early morning coffee was taken looking out at blue sky, sea and mountains! Very short walk to the town with great food available. Thanks for a great stay Julie.

Near perfect B&B in Kaikoura. Lovely building and gardens, very comfortable rooms (we had room 3 on the first floor which had a nice balcony), spectacular location and views, all with a good breakfast. Short walk from Main Street and seashore.

We had a beautiful room with ocean view. The whole property is beautiful with expansive and well-maintained lawn facing the ocean. Julie and Kerry are wonderful hosts with great hospitality. We needed to make last minute changes to our itinerary but our sim card didn't work with our phone, they lent us their phone so we could make the necessary changes. Kaikoura is also a beautiful town with amazing wildlife, we'll come back and stay longer!
