We stayed two nights and loved there. the service is perfect in all aspects, nice garden and mountain views, good breakfast to start the day. This was perfect for our needs, a good night of sleep and breakfast to start explore the beautiful Kaikoura. Recommended and stay there again when we return to the beautiful New Zealand.

The perfect B&B with a sensational Mountain backdrop view. A quiet stream full of Wildlife (100year Eels, Trout, Ducks) and an Admiral Creighton (White Cockatoo) that talks. Not to mention the little dog. The Hosts were very friendly and the Breakfast got the day off to a great start with all the International guests getting together. Kaikoura is a lovely...

Hi Peter, Yes and no, Yes the New Zealand Long fined Eels can and do live to 100 yrs+ but the ones you were looking at are best around 50 years and only half grown. Sorry if I gave the impression of them being older what I say is they can live for 100 years and the females reach up...

Clean friendly bb with comfortable bedrooms and sitting areas. House dog and bird friendly, as are owners but not intrusive. Rooms reasonably private although walls can be thin. Private baths. Breakfast cereal, toast, yogurt, coffee, juice, etc. good for a stay on your way.

Nice location and very genial hosts. We opted for a twin room when we booked and unfortunately this room was not ensuite and a very small room. A first for us since about 1970's to cross the hall for the bathroom! Saying that, bed was comfy and a peacefully nights sleep, breakfast was good. Lounge facilities good with sky tv....

We travelled from Dunedin to Kaikoura and booked this on the day while travelling. What a lovely surprise. A clean and tidy and well set b&b. The owners were most obliging even though we arrived well into the evening. Breakfast was most enjoyable meeting the other guests. The feeding of the eels and trout is a must see - amazing....

We stayed at the Admiral Creighton earlier this year during a four week trip around New Zealand. A delightful welcome from Creighton was followed by an equally friendly welcome from Yvonne and Tony who proved to be excellent hosts. We were made to feel very much at home and Yvonne went out of her way to ensure that our visit...

A great little place in Kaikoura. Yvonne and Tony were extremely welcoming and made you feel very at home. The cooked breakfast was superb. In the morning we had a good chat with Tony whilst feeding the eels, ducks and fish whilst enjoying the beautiful view.

Our family (2 adults & 3 kids) stayed in this charming B&B in Jan 2013 and we have kept a very good souvenir! It's next to the downtown and beach. There is a big garden outside the rooms, beside a river where the nice couple showed us how to feed the fishes - our kids loved that! The most memorable...
