The view from the sun room. Very beautiful. Book in fast, as this place wI'll be popular in the high season.
Best 180 degrees view of beach and mountains. Older facilities but kept nice and clean. View is just the best, night or day, just amazing. Good kitchen facilities, lots of space, nice touches like extra seating to take in the view. Hosts very friendly and helpful
staircase leading up to unit a bit rickety, shower very old and needing to be replaced.
The friendliness of the host and hostess and their eagerness to make our stay enjoyable. Outdoor deck area and secure Parking.
Older style apartment
Donna and Gordon were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Location, view, room configuration, nice hosts.
We liked it all!
It was clean and homely and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
We were just glad we weren't staying for more than one night. We've stayed at cabin parks with better facilities. It was 3 and 1/2 star price for barely 2 1/2 star accommodation.
It was quite cosy and the bed was very comfortable
Spider web in bathroom. Bathroom floor dirty. paint over unprepared surfaces.
Ten minute quiet esplanade walk to town centre for pubs and restaurants. Quiet off road unit.
Cleanliness, facilities, free laundry, car washing facilities
Good location over looking the sea. Bed comfortable.
Poor layout, bathroom split on entrance to room and was in need of a serious update, odd taps on sink. Notice in the room to say if you cook smelly food in the room there will be charge for extra cleaning.
Watching the sunset and snow covered mountains from our room was a joy. Whilst the accommodation is slightly tired; the beds are new and blissfully comfortable and the rooms are clean. The Manager was very friendly and assisted with local information and advice. Would stay again.
Water pressure and temperature in the shower is variable.
When I booked I did request 2 beds, instead I got a room with a bed and a sofa bed.
View from front of property Extra heating when needed List to train
Paying for WiFi Lack of resources in kitchen - e.g. Salt I thought I was getting a Seaviews, but my room faced the drive
Friendly hosts. Comfortable and good location. Thank you.
Our room was a well-furnished garage-type sructure. Lacked any sort of table but there wasn't really anywhere to put one. Vastly over-priced for what it was, but probably reasonable for Kaikoura.
The view. Everything clean and comfortable although very dated.The motel arrangement is quite odd, the individual rooms being situated in several different places around a car park which is in need of an upgrade.
Worried a bit about some aspects of the property with regard to modern day H&S matters.
Fantastic location, friendly helpful staff, clean and tidy with everything we needed. Will be back next year to stay again.
There was nothing to not like.
Basic shower toilet area and cold
Excellent position and accommodation staff friendly
Wifi cost and no kitchen cooker until requested
No wifi - you need to get with it Seaview! Layout was odd with the bathroom essentially in the hallway a heatpump would be much more efficient than a heater could do with an upgrade
Awesome people running the place!!
Great location! right on water front. Quick stroll to shops and cafe. We even enjoyed the walk to Seal Colony.
Bathroom needs a bit of TLC..
This motel is very old and tired and sign above sink asking you to do your own dishes!
The office staff (Leanne) was fantastic. I had a problem with the heating and she fixed it immediately. The room was spacious and comfortable.
Couldnt connect to wifi
