Acceptable”

Avoid ! Only location is great , but then other hotels/apartment is also in good location. Manager is rude and not bother to send email although i sent email few times asking for apartment code. luckily when we arrived, just after 5 mins of waiting , we seen her, otherwise i read reviews saying they had to wait longer for that. Electric cooker wasnt safe to use, it was not turning it off and made a big noise. We called the service helpdesk and been given another apartment to use. Lots and I actually mean lots of pan, pots and dishes were truly filthy and sticky. first time i ever come across something like this. When i spoke to Manager, She said , we have provide you a dishwasher so you can wash it. ( LIke seriously ??!!) My advice would be DON'T WASTE your Money. and if you have already booked it then ALL the Best !

Beautiful apartment”

Extremely comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen with dishwasher. 2 bathrooms was a bonus and washer and dryer was great. The exhaust fan didn't work in th en suite bathroom which was annoying as there are no windows. Would have appreciated a couple of board games or a pack of cards as we have experienced in other apartment rentals. Overall a very comfortable apartment for 2 adults and 2 teenaged children. Directly opposite the beach and a 10 minute walk to the main shops . We would definitely stay again.

Almost perfect”

The location is absolutely stunning. Incredible views of turquoise waters and snow covered mountains. Perfect layout with two bedrooms and two baths. I only rated it less than perfect because the wifi was not working at all, and I'm not sure the staff acknowledged our concern about needing to contact our families back in the US.

Love the Waves ”

I do think it is a mistake not to service the room daily as you used to. Particularly as the room rate is unchanged.

Luxury 2 bedroom - 2 bathroom apartment.”

Space, 2 seperate bedrooms and bathrooms, luxury living areas.

Although initial confusion because premises had changed ownership we thought this (No. 10) apartment was really good value having the 2 bedrooms / bathrooms plus excellent kitchen and living areas. Parking for 2 cars under cover at ground level - however this means the apartment is on 2nd floor. No lift. The steps are worth the climb and if only staying 1 or 2 nights you can plan in advance what items you need and not carry everything to the apartment.

An amazing place to stay”

Ocean view, excellently equipped apartment, location by the ocean and near Dolphin Encounter

Fabulous stay. Staff were very kind and friendly, let us drop off baggage before checking in so we could go swimming with dolphins, excellent apartment and very good value for money. We would happily come again. Highly recommended.

Go for the whales!”

Location; space; friendly staff

A great place if you want to do your own thing in Kaikoura. Off road parking, luxury apartment with plenty of space for a small family. A short drive from restaurants and takeaways. If you visit then the whale watching is a must.

Lovely apartment/motel ”

Clean, well equipped apartment/rooms. Great location near restaurants and attractions

This was a lovely motel located right near the beach. The staff was very nice. There was nothing wrong with this motel, I just would not rate it five stars. I would highly recommend staying here if you are traveling to Kaikoura. Beautiful scenery, lots of seals and several whale watching tours (boat, helicopter, small plane).

wonderful location, very good amenities , only downside was the fact that if you are on the top floor it is a long haul up with a full Esky, so be aware of asking for ground floor if you are a bit creaky

great apartment-style rooms in a great location”

location, cleanliness, size

We (my parents, husband and my two children) were only in Kaikoura for one night but we were impressed with the Waves and wouldn't have minded staying longer if our schedule would have permitted it. Very clean, comfortable, nice ambience, quiet, and perfect for our needs. Most comfortable bed I slept in during our two week stay in New Zealand.

Outstanding in every respect.”

Size and cleanliness of the apartment; great holiday venue for extended stay; proximity to town centre and Kaikoura activities

Great in every respect. Absolutely ideal for us - 2 adults and 2 15 year old twins. Note that the only reason for a '3' rating on food/dining is that we did not eat in the apartment. That said, all kitchen appliances were available if required.
