Helpful advising where to go to get Crayfish meal
Helen was friendly and accommodating. Room was basic but clean.
close to town, also whale watching station. clean and with lovely views. owner friendly and very helpful. good room with our own bathroom, and comfy bed. would stay again.
Location to centre of town yet peaceful
The Dolphin lodge is a friendly place with a wonderful view of the ocean from the hill-side. It is a few minutes walking from the center restaurants and bars and ten minutes from the dive tours. The facilities are clean and the atmosphere very relaxed.
The wifi was a bit unreliable, but you're in Kaikoura, put down your tablet and go put on a dive suit :)
Friendly staff, had lovely chat with owner and her cute cat. 5mins walk from town, very convenient. Good facilities, we stayed in ensuite room and it was basic but did what it said on the tin. Kitchen facilities and seating good, nice to be able to sit outside and see the sea. Most of all, by nz standards, great value for money!
Room did smell quite damp, kitchen could have done with another kettle and toaster as there were often ques for these. Bed was on wheels and slid across the floor quite often!
Everything was great good and comfortable and most helpfull wifi was free for 100g
Hot Tub and BBQ facilities
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...
