We had booked a studio but after one night found this a bit small. We requested a one bedroom for the second night which was more ideal for us. Very spacious and room to relax. The Fairways are about ten minutes out of Kaikoura but they are well appointed and semi-rural. Lots of walks and the beach close by.

We have already booked another trip with friends next year as this is the ideal space for a group.

Room tip: Apartments facing south west get lovely afternoon sun.

Highly recommend staying at The Fairways. A perfect two bedroom two bathroom apartment with comfortable kitchen and lounge perfect for cooking and relaxing.
However even better was the very accomodating hosts Callum and Calvin. Friendly , hospitable and their helpful suggestions ensured we had the most memorable experiences, being Whale watching and swimming with the dolphins. Many thanks and we look forward to staying again one day. Janet and family.

The check in process was hassle free, the hosts were very friendly accommodating.

The Apartments are great - they have all that you need during your stay!

Well furnished, air conditioned, has a lounge / dining area, full kitchen and even an outdoor setting - which is a nice touch.
The king bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was very clean - has 2 sinks which is super handy. The apartment we were in had a spa bath which was amazing!! It's also so nice staying somewhere where the shower pressure is awesome!!

Great location - very quiet, not being right in Kaikoura township - yet close enough to the township that it's less than a 5 min drive.

Would definitely stay again!

Room tip: If you want a simple room, pick the studio - otherwise pick the apartment if you want a more luxury experience

Studio # 8

Not even 'Cosy' - Just Cramped!!

Queen bed was 2 x Singles Zipped together with 'THAT LINE' up the middle - Pillow were Comfortable.

WiFi worked OK

Is it too much trouble for Reception staff to walk guests to their room?

We had trouble finding our room.

Only one Face Towel was supplied for two people, had to ask for a 2nd Face Towel.

It was QUIET - much appreciated.

We would NOT stay here again.....

We paid $140 but it was only worth about $100 - too cramped!!

We stayed one night on the way up the Kaikoura coast. The apartment was well furnished with all the amenities you need to cook a meal and relax. The apartment was spacious with a heat pump/air conditioner and a open gas fire. The bed was a king size and comfortable. The bathroom had two sinks which was great. The only thing that was missing was an electric blanket on the bed for the cooler months. We did a 40 minute walk from the apartment up through farmland on a mowed track. Very easy to follow and a great view from the top of the hill. We didn’t mind being a few kilometers out of town. There was a small amount of noise from the road but nothing that kept us awake. We will be back. Thanks for having us.
