              Fantastic position ”

              Clean, comfortable, good amenities, John was a lovely host. Fantastic walk down to the sea road, if able would highly recommend although you have to come up again, which actually was no problem! Great for whale/dolphin watching but on our visit the trips were cancelled because of wind. Bed really comfortable but softer pillow option would be welcome. Nespresso machine but no capsules, bring your own if this is what you want. Wi-Fi never worked and can’t understand why they don’t have a simple stand alone router. Despite these minor niggles, a great place to stay and would recommend.

              Thank you for the nice review Peter. So sorry we didn't leave any capsules for the coffee machine and the problem you had with the WI-FI. Its just a shame you didn't come and ask us for help as we do tell all our guests if they need anything to let us know. Most days the WIFI is good but we do have days where its not so good. But we are about to get connected to fiber which will make a big difference in Kaikoura? As for the pillows there are two spare ones in the wardrobe? We wish you both all the best and hopefully we will meet again in the future? John & Lynne - Austin Heights.

              Sweet hotel”

              This is a sweet very family run hotel. We had a room on the ground floor and the bathroom was on the opposite side of the corridoor. I hadn't been expecting that and it wasn't advertised as such at booking. It was only for our use but given that the owner and his wife are present most times it was strange to have to cross the corridoor to use it and you very much feel like you are staying in someone's house There are nice touches such as chocolates and biscuits in your room, you can borrow a good selection of DVDs, they'll drop you down to town in their car - but it's all a little too intimate for my liking but I'm sure a lot of other people really like this sort of thing - for instance, breakfast is cooked by the owner's wife right in front of you and they sit down to eat breakfast with you at their dining table along with the other guests and you all make small talk over breakfast - so it's like staying at a very pleasant's person's house and eating breakfast with them in the morning - just that not everyone like that when they are paying to stay in a hotel.

              Sorry, but we are a Bed & Breakfast and not a hotel & this is a reason guests like staying as they get to meet the other guests and they love communicating together over breakfast. We do take breakfast to your room if you prefer it? Also this room is now closed off and we only have self contained Units available. So hopefully we will get to meet again sometime?

              Clean and well maintained, nice owner

              The B&B is a lovely place to stay at. The owner couple makes a continental breakfast for you in the morning and chat with you while you eat. The rooms are not very sound-proof though so we had to whisper to each other late at night. Another thing is the internet password given to us did not work so we were not able to surf the web. Other than that we were pretty happy with the stay.

              Our rooms are much quieter than most places we have stayed at and don't have other complaints about noise. The internet may have been down at the time you tried to get on sorry! You should have told us and we could have checked it out or maybe your code had run out? It was a pleasure to meet you both and all the best for the future.

              这家酒店不接纳儿童,明明定了两个房间,临时被取消掉一间房间,害得我们只能睡沙发床。然后说好的退款也没”

              以后不会再选择这家店

              Thank you for your review. Yes, we don't take children as our B&B is not suitable for children. So please read all rules when booking a place. We do have a cancellation policy in place for our protection.
