We stayed for three nights, and had a great welcome from the owner Ivo and Rosmarie. Rooms have fantastic view over Kaikoura - you could even see the dolphins jumping. Very well organized, clean, helpful information on activities/dining in Kaikoura and a fantastic breakfast, which is delivered onto the room each morning!

The view from our balcony was unbelievable! Sitting above the town and bay of Kaikoura with views of the mountains and the ocean, Lemon Tree Lodge is a truly beautiful place to stay. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and then taken to our rooms, which were upstairs, with twin balconies. The rooms were beautifully and tastefully furnished, with...

The view from the balcony of a rather basic bedroom is stunning looking out over the town and Bay. The place is ideal for a short walk into the town and whaleway station for the whale watching cruises. The best rooms are those looking out over the Bay, others are a bit tucked away and close to access paths ,so...

Only stayed here one night on route to the top of South Island. Did the whale watch ( you need to pre book) which is close by. Beautiful setting and gardens passionately maintained by the owners. Rooms are lovely with fantastic views of the bay - watch the dolphins whilst you eat excellent breakfast delivered to your room. Everything close...

Lemon Tree Lodge is a beautiful place to stay. We loved the decor, terrace overlooking the sea, attractive gardens and quirky art work around the grounds. Breakfast was good with ample choice, coffee maker of good quality, bathroom stylish and bed comfortable.

When you step into the grounds, you find yourself in a surprising, gorgeous oasis lovingly crafted by the owners. We stayed in accommodation on the street side of the block (though heard not traffic noises at all), overlooking the communal garden area, which was very tranquil. We found our rooms to be clean, modern and well equipped. Ivor was a...

This place is located ideally: really close to town centre of Kaikoura where it all happens, but at the same time quiet and with a great ocean view while it's a bit higher located than all the fuzz. We had a really comfy ocean view room which is located in front of a nice garden. There's a jacuzzi for the...

Very accommodating and sweet hosts. Very short walk to the main downtown area, the place itself sits above the downtown area and has gorgeous ocean views. Very comfortable rooms and good homemade breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

Had 2 nights at Lemon Tree, just felt so much welcome. Nice big room with separate siting area, a nice balcony with a great view over the sea. One morning we woke up to hundreds of dolphins playing in the bay. We also took the whale watching trip, it was ok, a bit to crowded for my taste, but well...
