Lovely old lady right on the Point with views of the coast over to Kaikoura and the mountains. We understood the room would be basic and it was, but the bed was comfy, the shower was fantastic, and everything worked so all the important areas were covered. The only cons in the room (Room 6) were the cobwebs and stained carpet. The breakfast was included in the tariff and was a good continental buffet. The Guest Lounge/Breakfast room needs a good clean as it was dusty and the sideboard had a sticky top from people making hot drinks. The main reason for staying here is the Restaurant. Fabulous food, very well prepared. My partner loves a good steak and wasn't disappointed. "The chef sure knows how to deal to a steak" was his comment. That it's booked out every night of the week is testament to how good it is. Be sure to book when you check in as people were turned away both nights we ate there.

Great old pub on the point. Bit noisy with the rooms being above the bar/restaurant. Continental breakfast setup is terrific with ample self serve options. Missed a TV in the room.

Wonderful location. Restaurant was great. Accommodation tired, blown light bulbs, no electric blankets on the beds so thankful it wasn't a cold night. Value for money with self serve breakfast included.

Great position and views

Pros: The cosiness of the place and its commanding views
Cons: The rooms need a hairdryer, and bedside tables to put your coffee cup on. Also cakes of soap rather than a dispenser in the shower.
Location: Great walks nearby. Whale watching etc. or just sit on the upstairs verandah and watch the amazing sea and mountain view.
The old hotel has been decorated to a comfortable standard and the staff are friendly. They seem to focus on the restaurant part of the business which is hugely popular.

Great hotel in Kaikoura

Pros: Good value, comfortable, quiet with a great restaurant
Cons: NA
Location: Close to all of Kaikoura's facilities
Old character hotel with great renovations making the rooms very comfortable and presentable while still retaining the hotel's original character. Stayed there previously and I will stay again when I am next in New Zealand
