Comfortable double bed Clean towels supplied Free wifi voucher per person Fabulous view Excellent location Quiet and friendly Small boutique lodge with very friendly and accommodating host Excellent value Would most definately return and recommend to others
Communal mixed gender bathrooms - but that wouldn't stop me going back.
Location & view were excellent. The owner Helen was very welcoming & helpful... Have recommended the place to friends who will be visiting soon
Beautiful view from room and terrace Well equipped and clean kitchen (including lots of spices) Comfortable and clean place
I personally don't like mixed bathrooms but I understand that the house had only one- so it was ok for me
Not so clean - lots flies in the room. Not a quietly place.
Very kind Helen. Comfort room. Clean kichen.
The proprietor was friendly and helpful. The guests wee considerate of others. It was easy to find well signposted. Close to town. Clean and tidy.
It was just off the main road with a wonderful view of the ocean. Helen was lovely.
Seriously pathetic cleaning of room. Literally a bloody towel and sock under bed, hair on floor, no trash can in room or shower/bathroom. No towels. No soap. Broken lightbulbs in room's fixtures. No toilet PAPER....seriously bad attempt at a place to sleep even for basic acc. Lady was nice but super weird and not around if you needed to approach the amazing amount of things wrong. Hot tub very milky/dirty. Don't bother even for the price unless you're a scunger and feel like not sleeping on the street that night. Which may be nicer for the price
great location and views
I didn't feel welcomed when I arrived
Free wifi, though this should be increased Friendly staff (Helen!) Great location Nice, cosy little shared dining/lounge
Bed was so-so, but I was only there for one night so not really something I'd cry home about. Just an observation. More power sockets next to each bed would be great.
Easy checkin/checkout. No one in attendance. Late arrival and early exit. On the way to Picton Ferry. Near main Road.
Crowded. 6 people in three bunk beds. 1 small room. Not a lot of seating. Internet (Paid) did not work for me.
Wonderful view over the ocean and the mountains. Friendly staff! Short walk to village center.
Nothing in particular.
Owner very friendly and close to town centre. Good facilities with biggish kitchen. Nice and quiet location.
Close to town, good facilities.
Town alarm for volunteer fire service pretty much next to the house, went off both nights we were there so not the best nights sleep! Sounds like a war raid siren- so so loud!
Stunning location Beautiful seaview Nice terrace Well-equipped and clean kitchen Cleanliness in room, as well
Personnel was really nice and committed
Beds are too short, or I'm too long...
Close to the Kaikoura center
The host is really warm and friendly.We chat with three interesting Germany young people,spending their working holiday here.The kitchen facilities are nice,too.Unforgettable stay!
Excellent location for walking into town. Magnificent view of the mountains.
On a wet day the internal dining area is taken up by people sitting using it as a lounge. One of the electric cooker rings had a poor connection - not acceptable from a safety point of view.
Spa and location were great
Toilets a little cramped
Nice location easy access to the town and beach. Good facilities and very clean, stayed in a 4 bed dorm and there was plenty of space.
Plug socket was on a 1 hour timer so was difficult to charge electricals in the room.
Just off the Main Street with lovely views of the ocean. Well kept garden with a number of seating areas including a hammock and a steamy outdoor spa bath.
Internet is limited but that is not the fault of the inn. I think only satellite internet is available in the area so prices are high.
Location is good within walking distance to town centre. It has a great view of mountains and sea. The common kitchen is clean, comprehensive and gives a homely atmosphere. The bathroom is modern and clean.
The bedroom is too compact and there is no closet for hanging clothes. The electricity usage is limited to only one hour and annoyingly you have to reset it every time.
Great location and fantastic facilities. Friendly helpful staff.
