    Comfortable, clean, the host was amazing and so helpful. The hot tub was fabulous too. The rooms were fresh and clean and so were the shower facilities. We will definitely stay here again. Great value for money!

    Great views from the spacious lounge Friendly host and guests Very tidy and clean Easy to find location, 150 metres to the bus stop, cafes and restaurants etc. Fully equipped kitchen Lovely open fire! 10 minutes walk to Dolphin Encounter and Whale Watching

    Shared bathroom facilities were clean and tidy but pretty basic. Not a problem though.

    Just absolutely bang on! Really clean, great facilities and a beautiful garden, all a very short walk from the beach. Also Helen was my saviour in my hour of need with my knitting!

    Nothing, all great.

    Best of all was the owner's helpfulness, but the location is also perfect (just up from the bus stop and the information site) and the facility is 100% amenable.

    There's nothing not to like. This is the go-to place in Kaikoura.

    Very nice and helpful hosts. Great location. Incredible view.

    Room configuration strange and not great. It's backpacker style so the shared facilities, though great, could be a drawback.

    Pretty pricy, but very nice. Clean, secluded but close to the center.

    No real chairs around the table so just some sort plateau you can sit on but you sit against the wall. Not really comfy, but ok.

    It was one of the larger lodges that I'd stayed at so didn't have such a homely feel but was light and airy with a gorgeous view from the hottub and lovely garden! Also the staff were great when I lost my phone - it was handed in and they posted it back to me which made my stay!

    It felt a little like school camp with the toilet and shower cubicles and the rooms could do with just a few homely touches, but that apart not much!

    We only had a night at Dolphin lodge and was alright. It´s quite clean, cozy and enough for a short stay

    One of the receptionists seemed to be quite unhappy having to work on weekends and unfortunately her customer service wasn´t that good, maybe a bad day.

    Friendly and welcoming. Clean with good facilities for backpacking and a nice, very hot tub outside.

    Carrying heavy bags up the steep hill!
