          The Admiral Court is in a delightful spot on the Kaikoura peninsula. The staff were very friendly and more than helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable and the neighbouring restaurants were excellent. We spent several very relaxing days.

          Good place to stay while in Kaikoura, kind of far off the beaten path but near a beautiful scenic hiking path. The town is small enough that everything is quite accessible. The unit is very basic, and the wifi signal was too weak to be useful. They have a washing machine, which was nice to clean our clothes.

          We only stayed one night in a 2 bed unit, but were sorry that we didn't have more time. Steve and Carla are amazing hosts; very friendly, helpful and caring. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The one we stayed in does need a revamp, which we understand is happening soon. The motel is close to the local hotel, another good restaurant and the local fish BBQ caravan. This was a good find and the family was very happy, thank you.
