Lounge area spacious
Décor very outdated and very cheap Staff abrupt
The area is pretty and kitchen facilities are really good. No free wifi though.
Staff should know more about what to see in the area.
Warm inside on cold wet days, Quitness, clean, staff helpful, a good walk to town.e
Television programs were rubbish. Asbestors southern boundry fence is dangerous to health, needs to be removed with great care.
The motel is a bit rundown. Overall value for money.
We booked a room for 4 people, very nice and spacious. Good sized kitchen and bathroom.
The location of the television should be along the wall, either wall mounted or on a cabinet, not near the walkway to kitchen. Dangerous for young children because the tv might fall
the friendliness of staff,the cleansiness of the room,the price,
nothing all good,is a bit asian looking thats all
This was our second trip to Kaikoura and we stayed here once again as our first visit was very pleasant. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room we were in was clean and had everything we needed. Saw the notice that offended a previous reviewer but this wasn't a problem as we always try to leave a place as we find it. Although the property was a bit far from town centre this wasn't a problem for us as we had our own transport.
Good apartment with a small air condition but very easy to heat room up. Fully equiped kitchen. One of the best place we stayed in New Zealand.
No free wifi
Great shower pressure
There was a sign in the kitchen instructing us to wash the kitchen and dishes before we left or face a fine. I was not comfortable knowing that having sanitary dishware relied on the last occupant having cleaned properly. I also expect the motel to clean all rooms as we were paying for the room I don't think we should have to clean it!
It had everything we needed The staff were helpful
Fridge door was broken
size of the room, everything good
Clean,tidy,value for money,friendly staff,good location away from railway line side of road.Liked that it had two driveways.
Furnishings looked a bit dated
The only positive was that it was located in Kaikourra!
Broken fridge that we had to lift the door up to close the cracked door. Bedroom linen - the cover was dusty and the floors were not vacuumed. There was dust and it affected our asthma!
Lovely surroundings. Very tidy unit.
Bedding in second room suitable for adults, clean tidy, everything as expected.
The kitchen , living room and bedroom there is so much space. Good value . Many Thanks
Far from the centre
Room was clean and functional.
Staff could do with a personality transplant!!....arrived early, but not allowed to book in, even though room was ready.
We enjoyed our stay at the Willowbank Hotel. Ming, our host, was so helpful and friendly. The facility is older, but clean, quiet and comfortable. It had everything we needed. The wi-fi was an extra $5, but it was worth it- it worked great.
Large unit with plenty of room. Homely. Warm. Great view of the Kaikoura Mountains. Excellent value for money compared to virtually every other place we have stayed in in New Zealand
We loved everything about this place!!
No in room Internet. Arrived at 1pm and told to go sightseeing until 2pm. Heater had a timer so had to be 'put back on' all the time. Threatened with a $50 fine if dishes weren't washed and put away. Stay again? NO!
Value for money
Quite a walk from the town centre
