We stayed in a garden room and it was very noticeable that this hotel is extremely well taken care of. Every detail was taken into account, super clean and in excellent condition. We only stayed one night but enjoyed our stay. If in the area, check out the seal colony at Ohua Point; literally hundreds of seals and pups by the sea. And stay at this hotel!

Hi Lori, thanks for your fantastic review! You've made our day, and I will pass on your lovely comments to our housekeepers. Yes, the seals are amazing at Ohua Point, and it's only a 10-minute drive north of Kaikoura. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip. We loved having you stay with us. Warmest regards, Sue and the team

Our room was amazing with a gorgeous view from the balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. An added bonus was the wonderful spa bath which was needed after a day of sightseeing and whale watching. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again if it’s available!

We upgraded to a sea view with a sea view and huge spa bath which was excellent and not expensive. An excellent bed and reclining chairs with good double glazing, which ensured the road doesn’t bother you. Great kitchen facilities and a heated bathroom floor. The view is outstanding and parking was simple with lots of spaces. Plenty of bars and restaurants a 10 mins walk along the coast. The garden rooms looked great too and looked very quiet with seating area and plenty of sunshine.

Very nice motel, the only problem was we had trouble finding it. Even the gps in the car couldn’t find it. But once we got there we were very comfortable. We went to Kaikoura to do the Albatross cruise, which turned out to be right next door. They even have a clothes line, complete with pegs out the back so we didn’t have to use the dryer, which I appreciated.
