Stayed at the Seaview while passing through town on the train. We had the apartment right at the front of the complex looking out onto the beach. The space was clean, tidy, and really big for the price. There were two single beds in the main living area and a full bedroom as well. The beds were really comfortable and it was lovely to sleep with the windows open and listen to the waves. The Seaview is just a short walk to the main area of Kaikoura, no car necessary if you are staying in Kaikoura. The staff were very nice and accomodating.

Only downside was an outdated bathroom.

A great clean and tidy motel. Absolute fantastic view from our unit. We read some other reviews posted and thought prices were pretty good here, we looked at several other places and some didn't have views for the same price or units as tidy.
We will be back. Thanks
