Clean spacious room, friendly staff. On the main highway but noise not an issue. Would stay there again
Path away from the road for the short walk into town.
No fresh milk offered on arrival. Sachets of long life milk in fridge.
pillows were a bit high for me
Owner/Manager was very friendly & helpful. We were placed in a nice quiet room at the back of the property which was well equipped & private.
We were disappointed with the standard of cleaning in our unit. We had to wash some dishes & a chopping board which had food on them from previous guests before we could use them & the floors/scirting boards were dirty. Only the centre of the bathroom floor was clean. This is the first motel where we felt we could run short of toilet paper & soap in a cake. We would still return but hope these issues are considered.
Close to town. Clean and comfortable.
Very clean and comfortable. Good laundry facilities. Friendly and accommodating.
The steep walk back from the town centre - but then we're not very fit!
A very well run, spotlessly clean establishment that puts most hotels to shame.
There was absolutely nothing not to like.
we stay here everytime we are in kaikoura
We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for 4 of us. Ample room, lovely bathroom and kitchen. Great to have ice on arrival and very comfy beds.
We were looking forward to a sauna on arrival but as we had travelled frm ChCh after work we arrived to find sauna hours closed at 8pm and we had just missed out. We were all looking forward to that - something you don't have at home.
Very nice motel unit, good facilities
The unit had not been cleaned thoroughly when we arrived. Eg, kitchen rubbish container not emptied, stove top covered with fat splatter, dust under bed not vacuumed. But, other than that, very nice unit.
Good friendly service and spacious rooms. Helpful information and plenty of brochures available.
Quite a climb back up to the motel if you are carrying basic supplies. A trek after a nice meal out in town.
Location, comfort and service
Plenty of space in the big fridge. Nice roomy bathroom with shower over spa bath and great water pressure.
Disappointed the pool wasn't very warm.
We stayed in a room with a spa bath, this was really the highlight of my stay. The room was warm, there is a sauna on site however this has to be booked and there is a additional small charge for it's use.
Staff could have been more friendly, talk about the area and advise on what can do in the area, they were fair seemed like just there to do their job.
We felt very welcome & given some good tips to go for dinner etc Got upgrade to spa room and room was very spacious and immaculate
good location, nice people, units are a good size.
bathroom needs a 'deep' clean, tiles cracked and starting to look a bit shabby. had assumed the spa pool would be working like it was when we'd stayed 2 years previous.
It was clean. My husband liked the spa bath.
The room was very noisy. It was small. It was listed as a "Deluxe Studio with a Spa Bath". There was nothing deluxe or studio about it. There was only a meter between the end of the bed and the wall. There was a small uncomfortable chair. There was no where to relax. The other facilities appear to have been photo shopped. The pool is small. My husband and I frequently stay in hotels etc, I have been to backpackers that are more comfortable. Very overpriced for what it is. We booked for 2 nights. We changed the booking to a single night after 20 minutes of arrival as the room was so noisy and unpleasant.
Good beds and kitchen is ok. Pool and sauna.
Directly on the main road.
Ffiendly helpful welcome. Lovely apartment.Attention to detail.
The bed was too hard and not enough pillows in the room.
The hotel is closed to town center and the train station. We got free upgrade to two bedroom apartment with sea view. The owner of the hotel is so nice and helpful. We were very happy for our stay. Thanks.
The view and size of the 2 bedroom unit
The bed was a little firm for me
Wonderful location for our activities in Kaikoura, a friendly and delightful coastal town. Enjoyed our visit with Nevin, the owner, and our whale watch excursion. Also celebrated our anniversary at the Green Dolphin Restaurant & Bar which was excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Friendly staff and an excellent and comfortable unit.
