    Avoid!!”

    Pro: clean Con: staff at check in had very limited English, so difficulty in them understanding our query re shower operation (had read a review where problem had been had with its operation) & our request to put excess freezer pads in their deep freeze. As it turned out electric hot water shower operation instructions were clear - but with only hot turned on water was barely lukewarm, so no shower for us. Basic facilities, bed softer than used to & a tedancy to roll into middle unless on edge, but very tired so slept ok. A Kaikoura resident said it had recently changed hands & had deteriorated. Advertised as having glorious sea views but as the units were in a U formation the view was limited & through tree trunks. Luckily we were booked in for only one night passing through Kaikoura.

    Didn't give facilities 5 stars because ripped carpet exposing metal with sharp prongs exposed which stabbed my foot. This is between main area & kitchen. We were unit 11.

    Overpriced for a very outdated unit. Desperately needs a makeover”

    Lovely view. Nice staff. Floors and benches etc clean BUT bin in bathroom not emptied, only six TV channels only two Sky despite advertising Sky, very out of date information about restaurants etc. Even though I got a discount it was still too expensive and absolutly not worth tje full price. It's old concrete block, single glaze windows, cold.

    The heater was warm enough and i was able to do simple cooking there. It was certainly clean although it looks dated.

    One night only but..”

    We stayed one night on a trip around the north of the South Island and were very pleased with this accommodation. Our only slight grumble would be that it is a wee bit of a walk into town but that was expected so not a problem for us.It was clean, warm and friendly. So very pleased indeed. Would stay there again.

    A very eAsy place to stay right on the seafront and a lovely flat 10 minute walk into the town. Very quiet, with good parking and all the facilities that we needed. We had a fantastic time on the boat seeing sperm whales , ,pilot whales and dolphins who played around the boat for ages. A really good stop off point and the motel is highly recommended.
