“Clean, warm basic accommodation”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We stayed here on our way through to Blenheim. We found the reception staff very helpful, the rooms clean and the beds comfortable. Front doors on a central balcony will subject you to some noise, but for the price, this was a wonderful place to stay. And really, it has a giant lobster on the front, what's not to love.

Reviewed 27 April 2013

My family (parents, two children, and I) stayed in an apartment one night over Easter weekend. That might have been the problem -- The room was very nice, very spacious, clean, and comfortable, the staff were friendly, and Kaikoura is of course gorgeous, but the downside was that our room was right up against the barbecue area, where a large group was having a great and noisy time. Great for them, but not so great for us, because the walls were pretty thin. The group was good about leaving at quiet time, though, so that was very good. Also, the pool was freezing, but that was probably because it was fall. I'd recommend the motel, but bring earplugs if you're not with a group.
