Found these units tidy and clean with everything you could ask for. Next door to New World and over the road from restaurants and a bar. We were given WiFi sign on the moment we walked in and throughly enjoyed our week long stay. It was quiet, no traffic noise and lovely management who were friendly and had a wonderful...

From early at night to the next morning the sound of sliding roller doors reverberated throughout our room. There was little let up and even less sleep had. Dont expect sleep for the cheaper price Would not stay here again.

I had a very comfortable stay here in April 2014. I was travelling alone, arrived and departed by train, and the spacious motel room would have accommodated four comfortably. The walk from the station took about 15 minutes and I appreciated being offered a lift by the motel owners when I checked out. Kaikoura is a true, small seaside town...

Had a great nights stay here in April. Spotlessly clean unit and the bed was very comfortable - they even brought a BBQ over for us to use. Owner was really welcoming, and we were not bothered by any noise. An added bonus was the New World next door.

Had a room near the railway track, the trains do run though the night albeit on a reduced service every few hours. Our room was about 100 meters from the track and the trains are very noisy. The room was tired and WiFi reception (Zenbu) was poor with a 200MB limit!!!!

The cottage was in severe need of a make over. The interiour was worn and dirty. The bedroom was tiny. The bathroom was a joke. Directly behind our cottage ran a heavy trafic railroad, which made it impossible to sleep for more than an hour at the time. Only positive note was the very friendly owners.

Staff very friendly. Accommodation was nice and roomy. We had 3 beds, a double and two singles, even though there were only two of us. Kitchen well equipped. Nice and pleasant to be able to sit outside. In a good location.

Nothing special but clean and comfortable for an overnight stay in Kaikoura. Nicely decorated room. Bathroom space small but works well enough. Plenty of car parking and good guest laundry. Excellent hosts who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
