Heater could have given out more heat, it wasnt very warm
Great staff and handy to everything .
The hosts were brilliant - so easy to talk to about anything and nothing was a bother. The room was great, spacious and also a good sized kitchen area. Definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of staying there.
Water pressure - not very strong to wash hair.
Too many appliances plugged in cuts out the power. Bathroom draughty.
Prime position, right inbetween town and the seal colony. I also woke up to the most stunning sunrise and since this place is right on the beach I had the best view! Can't wait until next time
Asked for a room with a view as it was my birthday weekend. When we arrived they had given us just that. Very spacious room, updated look. They even had a birthday card for me with chocolates inside. Greatly appreciated this, it was very thoughtful ;) Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be back!
Excellent stay awesome service wouldn't hesitate on staying again
Heat on , very comfortable
Warm comfy room and bed
We could hear the ocean from your unit
We got a unit, different from photos on the website when we booked it. Basically, we got a converted garage. Thin walls, windows that do not close properly, door to the bathroom with huge gap doesn't give you any privacy. Everything was pretty basic and looked like made from leftovers. Dust over bedside table. This unit didn't worth that $90, actually I wouldn't stay in it even if I got paid $90 for staying there. It got incredibly cold over night, so we didn't sleep at night and woke up with headache.
Your welcome was friendly and careing.
Advertising was incorrect Unit was cold Electric blankets not on bed, single bed didn't work Bathroom freezing cold TV reception not satisfactory
The unit was very old, we thought we had a seaview which we did not. The bathroom was freezing and the windows could not close.
Cheap and cheerful! Excellent location and clean rooms with helpful hosts!
The owners were very friendly and most helpful in telling us of things to do. Would recommend to friends
There were no problems at all
friendly and helpful
location. and helpful staff
Family with young children in above room would of been best suited to low level for families
The sea on the doorstep The view
No shop nearby
The managers were nice. The bed was comfortable. Location.
The ground floor studio was quite disappointing. We booked this accommodation regarding the reviews on booking. When you arrive in the studio we were surprised to realise that the bathroom and toilets were directly in the entrance area and on the entrance door there was a shower curtain!!!!!! It gave us the impression that it was a house before that they transformed into a hotel.The electric system is old, don t plug too many appliances in the same time. And it was a little bit smelly as well but we couldn't identify exactly the smell.
Great place right on the sea,
owner is friendly and kind. they drop me off at bus station and whale station. comfortable staying.
little a bit far from centre of kaikoura.
The bathroom had a Really bad smell.
Staff were friendly and offered to keep our bikes secure in the garage, which was appreciated. Location - right on the beachfront and had views of a glorious sunrise on the last day of our holiday.
Quiet tidy clean warm facility at an acceptable price for us. Ideal for those passing through Kaikoura and just wanting a bed for the night.
Basic cost , ideal for a short stay. I believe the new on site managers (only been there two weeks) will make changes and will hopefully be given funding to do so. Still will only be a basic accomodation .
Very basic , even for the price it was a poor apartment. Electrics were questionable for a registerd holiday accomodation.
A bit tired and dated and certainly no "sea view"....
