Can't recommend this hotel enough! It's the third place we've stayed in Kaikoura and it's by far the most comfortable and the best value for money. We stayed in the Premium Studio for 2 nights and loved the beautiful views from the balcony and the large spacious room and bathroom with spa bath. The bed was really comfortable and the room was warm despite it being extremely cold outside. W will definitely stay here again when we're back in Kaikoura.

We enjoyed our stay here. Good beds, underfloor heating in the bathroom and the heat-pump was very efficient. We paid for one of their Premium Rooms and upstairs so we could be on the sea front to maximise our view. The room was still very quiet even being on the main road. It was a pity the weather wasn't warm enough to make use of the balcony.

In Kaikoura for Whale watching, only stayed here for one night but the room was clean, warm and well equipped. We didn't have a view which I would recommend people asking for, and it was quite noisy with people moving about, and running up and down outside the door, although it didn't go on late. Perfect size room for a family and the location is great for town and the ocean.

Well insulated doors & windows keep the cold out and the heat in.
Tea & coffee available in the room ( and good quality too).
Breakfast available to be charged back to your room at Dolphin Encounter next door too. (You can also charge back to your room at several local restaurants too).

We arrived at the coldest day of the winter. The minute we check in, they informed us about it and had left the heater on the entire afternoon to keep the room warm for us! We didn't know that check out is at 10 am. They gave us a polite call to remind us and granted us time to pack up. Thank you for the thoughtfulness that made our trip so pleasant!
