Most everything. Purpose built lodge is wonderful and facilities are excellent. Great conversation with the patrons and very personal service. Views are much more spectacular than the photographs on the site.
A peaceful and relaxing setting great views of the snow capped mountians and the ocean. Excellent host- great breakfast. Rooms very comfortable with modern amenities.
Cold showers 2 days
Stunning views, comfortable bed, friendly reception, excellent meals and so peaceful.
Would have liked coat hooks on back of doors, hand towels and a long mirror.
Distance from town
We absolutely loved the location, the room was fantastic with a to die for view. Neil our host was extremely helpful and friendly and even went above and beyond to buy me a present for my birthday! We would highly recommened to anyone looking for accommodation in the Kaikoura area!
it was the first stay during our 3-weeks tour in Newseeland, everything new, modern and tastefully. Neill was a so friendly host, we felt very wellcomed.
We loved the views of both mountains and ocean. It was so peaceful

The overall excellent quality of the lodge. Bed the most comfortable we have slept in while travelling
remoteness from town Breakfast could be better
Very superb B&B, Must try dinner and breakfast( very yummy scramble eggs), good wifi signal
Beautiful location. Very comfortable room with rainfall shower and separate bath. Five star welcome from our host - nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed his cooking very much.
Just fantastic place for those who like to be a little away from town. The place is brand new and all efforts made to make it perfect.so is the owner's service .
The facilities were fantastic. Everything is modern and brand new. The rooms were spacious. The location is very quiet, separated from the hussle of town. The staff were incredibly accommodating and very friendly. We would highly recommend!
Neil was a great host. The food was AMAZING. The setting was great, with very impressive mountain views.
Rooms were not very soundproof, although this wasn't an issue as everyone is nice a quiet. Just something we noticed. The pillows were very large, too large for my tastes. Would be ideal to have some thinner pillows for those that want them.
Neil was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. The bedroom was very spacious and we had excellent views of the mountains, and a good glimpse of the sea. A two night stay and dining in, would be ideal
