15 Mins outside of Kaikoura and in the most peaceful and beautiful setting, a modern Lodge done to a high standard with high quality, well equipped bathrooms and good size bedrooms. We pre-booked an evening meal to have on our first day ( check all evening meals must be pre booked before arrival!!) and were delighted with a lovely meal served in the dining room. The weather was dreadful and it was so nice to stay in and have our meal served to us without having to go out.
I would agree with other reviews, it is more like a small boutique hotel than a bed and breakfast. Guests have their own dining room and lounge area with log fire. No not cheap but you get what you pay for!
