Excellent standard of accommodation, comfortable bed, very quiet. Friendly host made us feel very welcome. Parking close to door, so easy to "lug luggage" to apartment. Only thing that didn't make it perfect was a "Kaikoura" view of the sea! But still very good value. Only one night passing through after ferry trip, but wish we'd stayed longer.

we stayed at the fairways for the whale watching cruise. it is 5km away from the town in a new development complex. the room was spacious and the furnishing are nice. the host was friendly. the crayfish stop on the way to the seal colony was very cheap and tasty.

Stayed for a few days at The Fairways recently and had an awesome time. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Being a little out of the township was great as the location was quiet. Also allowed us to take a short walk to explore the beach.

We stayed in a 1 room apartment - space and furnishing are great! Looks very very new. There is no common recreation/fitness facilities though. The staff were very friendly.

It is about 5-6 minutes' drive from town and it very very quiet - there were only 2 rooms booked on my last night there.

Thank you for staying with us at The Fairways.
Many guests would be pleased about it being quite, & while there were more than a couple of guests staying while you were here, it's the calm before the storm.

It's nice to know that we market serenity and we accomplish this at times.
Christmas holidays it is diffinately not one of those.

We hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here in New Zealand.

Although a few kilometers out of Kaikoura, Fairways is definitely worth the added five minutes drive. The room (bedroom and lounge with kitchenette) was very modern, beautifully designed and laid out - super and very spacious.

Room Tip: The Studio room we booked was lovely but a bit small so we upgraded to an apartment which was superb and included washing machine etc.
