Our room was massive and had great views. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly cooked. We liked the nice touches like having drinks, including beer, available for guests in a small fridge and being able to use their laundry facilities. The hosts were lovely and friendly.

Stayed for one night while traveling around NZ. Would stay here again in a heartbeat . Beautiful room (it was called Whale ), fantastic bed etc. breakfast top class and shared at a long table which encourages conversation between guests.

Stayed here whilst whale watching in kaikoura. Good quality accommodation. Decent breakfast offering. 10 minutes walk or so from town centre. Little further from other amenities Inc seal colony and pier hotel.
