Score from 161 reviews Very good
The room was very clean, great shower, comfortable bed what more do you need. I was passing through to catch ferry. Had a great sleep. Will definitely stay there again. Value for money.
it was far enough away from all the bustle and still close enough to get to the township quickly
Nothing. The place was old and very run down, though one wouldn't have thought so given the cost. We'll never make that mistake again. There are plenty of motels and other decent accommodation in Kaikoura.
Excellent accommodation, very clean, keep up the standard, value for money, we will be back definitely no complants
it was clean , and comfortable
Friendly man at counter, helpful. Everything we needed in the room.
We had to do our own dishes because there was a sign that said if we didn't there would be a $50 charge for messy kitchen. The joy of a motel is that you don't have to clean up after yourself. Isn't that what we pay for? Not cool I think.
Willowbank is very comfortable and clean. We were treated very well by all staff and Management. Would not hesitate to return.
Thankfully came with an electric frypan. The electric cooktop with Asian instructions was not operable.
The colour décor.
Free paper each day.Polite staff. Clean.
Had to pay for wifi. ($5)
Very reasonable price
Everything was so outdated, Floor was on a lean, shower had no pressure, Had to do own kitchen cleaning or face a $50 fee. Had to turn fridge off at night so we could all sleep it was so loud.
Spacious unit with good kitchen facilities. Staff helpful
shower made bathmat wet
Nice place n will come back again
Availability Unit 7 allows both car and boat to be parked alongside Ease of check out early morning Suited our needs for an overnight stay for early departure. Drive in/out driveway very useful when towing.
Lack of double glazing Poor noise insulation Very dated decor Kettle not only took a long time to boil but was very noisy about doing so.
We only stayed one night
The notes up on the walls about being charged $50.00 for not doing dishes. The substandard fittings and shabby look to the place
warm and comfortable just what we needed. close to town
didn't like that if we didn't do the dishes and leave the kitchen clean we would be charged $50
the shower was powerful& big
damp smell within room. Dogs barking in neighbouring property. Sign prompting guests to clean kitchen before check out,washing up fine but the kitchen should be cleaned by owners for hygeine reasons.
Even for high season a price of $240 for a family room is much to high considering this motel is quite old. We have stayed in modern design family rooms for €210 dollar in high season.
Good scenic view. Clean comfortable rooms. Value for money.
Location away from the Town center. Check in at 2 PM. We reached at around 11 AM since we travelled from Christchurch by Intercity Bus service. Although we could keep our luggage, no particular effort was made to accommodate us earlier.
Dated décor In need of a make-over Carpets terrible Poor quality appliances
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.
Number of things were not in order.... Like bathroom door had a gap when in locked condition and latche was not working. There was a instruction on kitchen that "if we do not wish utensils there will be $50 charges".... And number of things were not in favour of travelers, we were 2 weeks in NZ and did not see such things in other motels in any part of NZ.
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.
