Bendamere House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 32 Kaikoura B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Great rooms and location. Julie is a friendly and helpful host who homebakes muffins each day for you to take out with you and her short-bread is to die for. A graden with stunning views and beautiful roses. Just a 5 minute walk to town and restaurants.

Bendamere is the nicest place we have ever stayed. Stunning views of the South Pacific and the snow-covered Kaikoura Range; rose gardens galore; a lovely lawn on which to read; and an immaculate, quiet room with a king-sized bed and a deck. Julie was a delightful hostess, sending us off with home-baked muffins and shortbread every day and full of good information about restaurants and attractions. Furthermore, the location can't be beat. Just a 5-minute walk to the town and ocean. We loved it and hope to visit again someday, if we're lucky enough to return to New Zealand.

We stayed for a night while travelling down the coast. The room is great. Nice and big with views across the lawn to the ocean and the mountains in the background. We were made very welcome with recommendations for restaurants etc. breakfast in the
Family kitchen with fellow guests was a nice way to start the day I would definitely recommend Bendamere

We stayed here for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer. The rooms are immaculate, the views stunning and Julie is a mother hen and superwoman rolled into one. She gave us home baking for our room and to take with us on our trips. Lovely king beds with mattress toppers.you wil not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Book an upstairs room for fantastic views and a lovely balcony

Wonderful top class accomodation with patio doors that open onto a beautiful lawn overlooking Kaikoura and the bay.
We stayed there early spring so the Kaikoura range was covered in snow. Another stunning view from the property.
Easy access down to the town.
Not the cheapest B&B we have used but you get what you pay for and the breakfast was superb and included a muffin each to fortify you on your travels when you leave.

Pleasant B&B with nice lawn area overlooking central kaikoura town centre. Great Views to the mountains. Hosts friendly and helpful. Great place to just relax on front lawn overlooking bay and mountains. Breakfast was good.

We stayed here for over 2 nights in 2010. The location is purely blissful with a well manicured lawn overlooking the cliff and the sea. There is no better feeling than lounging on lawn chairs and reading a good book. The rooms are functional and clean, and the breakfast is quite a large spread! I would choose this place purely for the location - its absolutely fantastic and I still remember the images 2 years since I visited!
