The owners are so friendly our 7m poodle cross puppy was made to feel like a member of the family. Our room had a blanket, water bowl and treat for her. Clean and comfortable facilities. Just a 5minute walk to a deserted beach. If you want a break away with your fur baby in Kaikoura, this is THE place to be!

There are two super nice ladies Manuela and Vladka who are genuinely friendly, helpful. The location is a dream just across the street and you are on the beach.
It is also spoken German, English even Czech which is not easy to find in New Zealand. Sincerely, we would return.

Average motel in New Zealand. The room was comfortable and clean, close to main road - very noisy. Need a car to reach the town center. I don't think there was alternative with better standard in this price range.

Hello,
I am just wondering, if our motel made such an average impression, that you remember it after a year and posting the review first now. Since Aug 2016 the Mediterranean Motel is under a new management, we renovated the rooms and guests outside area. Unfortunately Kaikoura was badly hit by the November earthquake, the roads are partly closed now and our motel become very quiet place with the fabulous solitary beach just across the road. Even with the recent earthquake Kaikoura is an amazing place where the mountains meet the ocean with playing dolphins and the seals.

My wife and I were the first guests to book into the motel since the November earthquake. The present owners only purchased the hotel 2 weeks before the quake. Many people would have packed and gone home, not Vadka and Manu 2 young ladies from Europe. They gave a warm welcome and could not have been kinder. I wish them all the success they deserve. I could go on for ever but I would urge people to support this brave community and visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent and have good facilities

This was absolutely lovely time. The motel is situated two-minutes walk from the seaside.
Very friendly girls running the motel make this place your second home. Their very friendly and welcoming attitude gives you a feeling of an appreciated guest.
They helped us with our trips planning and organization. We were also offered to choose the sunniest room. The rooms are spacious with an equiped kitchen. Parking spot is just in front of the apartment. There was as well as a strong wi-fi connection. We will surely be back soon again.
