Staying here at the Bendamere is like staying at your Aunt and Uncles. It's that pleasant and you are made to feel like you are family. The view from the rooms is quite awesome. After a good nights sleep, we went down to the dining room for breakfast and it was delicious and very satisfying. We were given two muffins...

We were booked to stay here for one night but had to re-schedule due to a travel agent error. The owners could not have been more helpful. Kaikoura has suffered since the earthquake and I wish them well next year. We were disappointed not to have been able to stay.

Our second visit to Kaikoura after our first in 2014. On both occasions we stayed at Bendamere House B&B. And despite the recent earthquake we did not change our plans - making the journey via SH1. Bendamere House B&B provide clean, fresh and quiet rooms. The facilities are adequate and the shortbread a delight with a cup of tea! The...

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Very nice. The place is modern, clean and has a fantastic view over the sea. It's within easy walking distance of the town centre and all the facilities and a great place to stay. The warm welcome at breakfast and friendly chat with Julie & Kerry was good. A great place to stay...

Gorgeous views right near heart of kaikoura. You can walk to cafes and restaurants easily. Rooms are spacious, modern and clean. Very gracious hosts! Looks exactly like the pictures. Other suites on property but still very private.

We had a room on the 1. floor. The view was breathtaking and the room was very well equipped - we enjoyed the bath ropes. There's a very nice balcony overlooking the see. The breakfast was very good, and we got brownies for the road - yummy!

Cannot fault this B&B, Julie is an amazing host, friendly, well organised and helped us out when our previous accommodation fell through. The view is simply incredible, lovely balconies, very comfy beds and spotlessly clean. Free parking right at the door virtually. Highly recommended. Great base to explore Kaikoura.

Julie was an excellent hostess. She greeted us warmly and showed us around. The view from our room was beautiful. She gave us such good advice about who to fish with and where to eat. And, when we left each day she gave us some home baked goodies to take with us. We just hope that Bendamere will be back...

We spent two days here with the fantastic view over the bay from our lovely room. Our host Julie warmly welcomed us and gave us plenty of useful info at our arrival. The breakfast was generous and delicious, and Julie prepared for us even we need to go whale watching at 7:15 (normally breakfast is available during 7:30 to 10:00)....

We stayed two nights and enjoyed Julie's wonderful hospitality. She is a consummate professional with years of experience. The room was perfect, although we could have used some drawer space and more coat hangers. The bed was very comfortable and the view was exceptional. Julie arranged our whale watching trip and restaurant bookings for us. Cellar View was the best...
