My husband I travelled through out the South Island during our holiday and stayed at many motels during the months of January 2011.
Our stay in Kaikoura was very enjoyable. There was much to do and see during our stay there. We stayed at the Clearwater Motels for 2 nights and we really did enjoy our stay at this motel. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. The beds were great as this motel was not modern but the price was reasonable considering we had a view of the Ocean and mountains from our room.We had several meals at the Seafood BBQ which is near the Seal colony which were really cheap and also fresh. If you enjoy Seafood then this is the place to eat in Kaikoura.
