Stayed one night during our tour around New Zealand as we were booked on a whale watch tour here. Basic but clean motel accommodation located on main road through Kaikoura. Ate at pub next door which was noisy but OK. Whale watch tour was amazing, saw two whales.

Large room with plenty of seating, self contained for those wanting to cook themselves, large comfortable bed, highly recommend. The only thing lacking was an air conditioner, I would definitely stay there again.

The motel is well located. studio room with a good balcony. Well maintained. Adequate parking.Continental breakfast is average. Housekeeping is efficient. They have a Tavern nearby with the same name. It was closed by the time we reached back in the night.Didn't bother us, as there were excellent restaurants open nearby

In comparing this motor lodge with others in New Zealand we stayed we found the room to be a bit small. Also the microwave in the room was not heating correctly. Room was clean and bed was comfortable but rooms not well sound proofed and felt exposed with full glass doors adjacent to pedestrian hallway.

Put up 2 nights in this place, it was a decent stay with no frills. 5mins walk to the supermarket across the street. U can find a nice fish and chips takeaway down the street.
It was decent stay overall.
