Tony and Molly (King Charles Cavalier Spaniel/Poodle Mix), were batching in the weekend we were there and they were wonderful hosts! Tony gave us great advice, total local "in the know" suggestions - food, activities and fun. They have great selection of videos for in the room or in the community room viewing for the night we stayed in after...

Thanks to Tony, Yvonne & Admiral Creighton. Your hospitality was wonderful. Sorry our stay was so short (2 nights). We did hear the Siren go off one of those nights, but as you say in your guide, just roll over and go back to sleep which we did. Our room was great, the breakfasts wonderful - setting us up for...

Whilst you could not fault the bedroom the hosts left a lot to be desired. Tony totally ignorned me when I was sitting at the table on the first day. His wife Yvonne could not really be bothered with us. Continental breakfast consisted of juice, cereal and toast. Not what we are usually used to. The cooked breakfast at $10...

We are very sorry to have a response such as this as we strive to make everybody feel welcome If guests are talking to each other at breakfast I do not interrupt. We have taken on board the remarks about breakfast and have changed the menu to include more items. . It is very hard to provide a breakfast which...

Let me start by saying I travel a lot and have never wanted to write a review before. Yvonne&Tony Steadman are just absolutely delightful. Extreemly helpful to me as I stayed with them and extra day after my tour. Tony even fixed my huge suite case that had a broken wheel. It weighs 60 lbs and I'm traveling alone so...

Our extended family (ages 23 to 87) stayed in three of The Admiral Creighton's bedrooms. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived, with Tony and Yvonne going out of their way to offer local advice and ensure we were comfortable. The B&B is located well away from the road and was very quiet, with supremely comfortable...

Very comfortable room in a lovely home on the edge of Kaikoura. Yvonne and Tony were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome. We had a very short stay here unfortunately but Yvonne made sure that we made the most of it with her recommendations on sightseeing etc. Would strongly recommend ' Admiral Creighton' to anyone. Excellent value for...

The hosts are very welcoming and are enthusiastic about explaining all the things Kaikoura has to offer to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfast was good and generous quantities of tea, coffee, etc. is on tap in the dining room. It was interesting to see the eels and trout being fed in the morning and Creighton, their cockatoo, entertained us...

It is a great spot to stay! After spending a few nights in hotels along the way to Kaikoura, I really enjoyed the hospitality and comfort at this B&B. I got picked up at the train station, and got great suggestions on how to spend my time in Kaikoura. The room was very clean, and a good size, and admittedly,...

"Hello!" I called as I came to the front door. "Hello!" came back. This happened two or three times but no one appeared. I then realised I was having a conversation with a white cockatoo. He is a real character -asking for food when he hears you eat toast. We tried to teach him, "Up the Arsenal" but needed more...

The hosts are indeed very welcoming and nice, the breakfast was fine, but this B & B advertises itself as "luxury" and that it is not. The rooms and the bathroom have none of the touches or furnishings that go along with "luxury" and strangest of all, there are no locks on the doors to the bedrooms even though they...
