"We arrived early in Kaikoura and managed to check-in early. The unit was very basic. The location was nice as it was close to Kaikoura town. It has basic cooking facilities. Please note though that generally in New Zealand, the common practice is each unit will have a base price for generally 2 adults and each additional occupants will have a surcharge, regardless of the number of bed or rooms that exist. In this case, NZ$20 for each child."

"We booked this hotel on same day (as our whale watching tour got cancelled that day) and was very happy they could accommodate us. Our room was simple but clean and had a heater that was working and enough blankets to keep us warm. The location is great too, with grocery and some restaurants just walking distance. The staff was great - friendly, hospitable, and gave great recommendations!"

"You need to check this out. If you want convention, check out something else. Wacky Stays is a Farmstay experience (help feed the animals) and is therefore a great stay for kids. For adults, if you are adventurous, you'll love this. The location is a couple of k's inland from Kaikoura. They'll send you directions. Don't trust the Satnav. The place consists of open fields with a different stay experience in each; yurt, gypsy caravan, train carriage. The train carriage is the pick of them for us. Saved after the Christchurch earthquakes, this carriage is all polished timber and brass accessories, meticulously restored, full kitchen with full breakfast items provided (farm eggs), a neatly integrated bathroom, a double brass bed in a bedroom at one end, two bunk beds in a kids facility at the other. End platforms and a full front deck. Dressing gowns for all. Sitting area and DVD's. Snow-capped mountain view. Isolated. Farm surroundings. Adventurous. Read the label. Great experience."
