My room was dark, with poor lighting, the wifi didn't work inside and the TV reception was terrible.

Lovely place close to town.

Posted 24-Mar-2016
Pros: Plenty of space, really clean and close to beach and town
Location: Whale watching and dolphin swimming is just minutes down the road from this place. There's great spots to eat and drink just minutes away.
Three of us had a lovely stay at the Alpine View, which is just a few minutes drive from town. The owners are hilarious with their cheeky banter back and forth and they keep the rooms impeccably clean. This is a great budget priced venue that far exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.

Destination à privilégier

Posted 16-Mar-2016 on Hotels
Le soleil a agrémenté notre séjour malgré le vent qui nous a privés de la sortie en mer "whale watch" (houle trop importante) mais la promenade le long du Pacifique de 2h fut très vivifiante. L'hôtel est très calme et situé à côté de Countdown pour les courses. Très bons fish&chips en ville (blue cod) et jolis magasins (Geneviève's).

Disappointing Motel

Posted 08-Mar-2016 on Hotels
The room was very dated and in need of refurbishment. The bathroom was horrible. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Spacious family room

Posted 08-Mar-2016 on Hotels
It was a nice family room some km from the center, very clean and spacious. We liked the place, the train is close but runs rarely - no problem for us.

Easy access to whalewatching

Posted 06-Mar-2016 on Hotels
A nice place just outside Kaikoura. Close enough to whale watching to walk. Just across the railway from a beach, which is great for beach access, but then there's a railway next to the hotel. It seems to be infrequently used. In fact, it didn't bother us at all - we slept right through any trains overnight.
