                Nice and Cool Apartments”

                I love to stay at Fairways Apartment because it is located very central. Only 5 minutes to Kaikoura City Centre, and also around 10 minutes to Whale Watching area. The apartment is big. The only thing need to be concerned is the cleanliness of carpet. Not too dirty but need to be vacuum more often. Nice and friendly staff, very helpful especially for giving me directions for Kaikoura surrounding area.

                Kia Ora Clement, we have recently found the reviews on Agoda so apologies for the delay. Appreciate your positive comments. With regard vacuuming it is only done during daily servicing if there is a mess or by request. Vacuuming is a major part of the clean up after the guest check out. All the best, Ross and Jen

                Modern apartment, quiet location, well looked after

                Our stay was good. The apartment was located off the main road leading into kaikoura and was therefore quiet and not busy. The apartments are a modern build and have been well looked after. The main bedroom was large and the en-suite was also a good size. Check out is 10am. The welcome from reception staff was warm and welcoming. Ample parking for the apartments.

                In many regards this motel is very good indeed however I could not recommend a motel which has cooking utensils, plates, glasses, cups and cutlery and supplies dish washing liquid and tea towels but has only a bathroom basin in which they could be washed. Who wants to use kitchen things that have been washed in the same basin as that used by a previous guest to wash their hair, feet or even underwear? This is a serious design fault!

                Lovely apartments with very friendly manager and staff.. The apartments are beautiful with great facilities...washer and dryer with washing liquid, jacuzzi bath, barbecue with a bucket of implements etc...You do need transport though as it is a little way out of town. Very honest...they called us to let us know we had left a book and things behind. The only quirk is that the recycling pail in the apartment doesn’t match the way they divide the recycling outside.....😳 Be prepared to do a good clean up before leaving but no unreasonable expectations, We loved it and would hope to stay again.

Bed was very comfortable, bathroom had a spa bath, there was a gas log fire in the living room and it even had a laundry...what more could you ask for. It was about a 5 minute drive from the town but well worth it.

                Great New Development”

                Brand new rooms and nice environment

                New development at the Ocean Ridge which is just a quick 10min drive from Kaikoura Town Center. Lush greenery surrounding the project and a nearby golf course. There was a few groups of travellers who were seen return after a day at the golf course. Stayed at the Studio which was pretty basic and simple. Hotel provides maps of the town centre and lots of relavant info for restaurants/activities at the town centre which was pretty useful. The apartments look gorgeous though and something that I will stay at the next time we're at Kaikoura.
