This was our second visit to this family run B&B. The rooms are very well appointed and separate to the main house. Unbeatable views of the kaikoura coast. Large garden to relax in. Julie provides a great breakfast in the dining room of her house and will help out with confirming any local arrangements. It has to have the freshest...

Sadly, we could only stay one night Julie's lovely Bendamere House. We were booked on a whale-watching trip and then were flying out to Sydney. After a most comfortable night's sleep, Julie gave us a delicious early breakfast watching the sun rise over the horizon. Gorgeous. The views from our room and from the breakfast room are to die for....

The view is amazing , breathtaking. This B n B is slightly out of Kiakura but that is a benefit. Accommodation is clean and tidy but quite dated and needing a bit of decorating. Breakfast was very sociable , sitting together with other guests in the main house. Good to discuss the day ahead. Anne was very kind and helpful...

Bendamere and Julie both lived up to their lofty TripAdvisor ratings. Our room was on the second level and had an outstanding view of the gorgeous back yard and Pacific. The room was large, clean, and well appointed. Julie was an excellent host. Breakfast was on time and delicious. Be sure to say hello to Diesel (the cat) while you/re...

Bendamere House stands on the hill just above the town of Kaikoura. Shops and restaurants are just a short walk or drive down the hill into the town. We stayed just one night in the Hartnell Room, a first floor room with patio window and terrace looking out over the extensive grounds and with uninterrupted views of the Pacific. The...

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at Bendamere for one night on our trip up the coast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The view from the house is breathtaking since it is situated on a hill overlooking the coast with a large grassy yard. It is, also, an easy walk down hill to restaurants and shops. At...

I stayed here one night on our way to the Omaka air show in Blenheim. Our host was very kind and accommodating when we arrived incredibly late (as the airline had lost our luggage). We had a great night's rest in a comfortable bed and woke to a spectacular sunrise. The view is too good to stay such a short...

We stayed one night in Kaikoura during our whirlwind tour of the South Island, and wished we could have stayed longer. Our cottage at the Bendamere B&B was spacious and comfortable, with a small balcony (adjoining with the guest next door) that provided a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. The grounds were beautifully maintained, the location was close to...

Everything about Bendamere House was great. The grounds were like a private park with spectacular views of the black sand Kaikura bay. If you stay here rush to the room first and secret away the home made shortbread. Then you won't have to share. Breakfast was great and we enjoyed chatting with the other travelers.

We stayed 3 days in the Hartnell King room (one of the upper level rooms with a balcony). To sit there, with the sun on your face and a glass of wine in your hand is sheer bliss. The situation could not be bettered and we loved every minute. The room was extremely comfortable, very spacious and had a fridge...
