My partner and I checked in after dark, the room was quiet and clean. Was a little dated thru out but well maintained. Was a little shocked that we ran out of hot water on the 2nd shower. The next morning we got to enjoy beautiful sea views from the shared deck.

This Motel is in a great location at the other end of the Esplanade from town on a wee street called Avoca which is opposite the Pier Pub and next door to the fantastic Green Dolphin a Restaurant. Great hosts, clean room, comfy Queen bed and superb shower. Definitely worth staying here with food close by and excellent walking opportunities...

We visited Kaikoura a few years ago now, and we stayed here while we were there. I loved every bit of Kaikoura including this place. Very welcoming staff, clean, and bright units, LOVED having our coffee in the morning looking out at the mountains. If we venture back to Kaikoura, I'd love to stay here again!

A nice little motel away from the main part of town. Friendly helpful hosts. Very comfortable and quiet. Located next door to a beautiful restaurant. Also close to a great little pub which serves great meals. Will stay again next time we are in Kaikoura.

We chose the accommodation with 2 bedrooms, the rooms were spacious and well presented. The motel is located a short distance from the town centre but is a 10 minute walk around the bay. The owner welcomed us and recommended both the restaurant next door and the pub across the road, who she called and booked a table for that...

Our studio was spacious and well equipped, and the free wifi worked well. The owner was personable and friendly and very accommodating when we wanted to change your booking due to the weather conditions. He also helpfully advised us to book as soon as possible for the excellent Green Dolphin restaurant. This is right next door, which was a blessing...

Comfortable clean and easy to find. Close to town really close to excellent restaurant the green dolphin. The heated towel rail was nice touch and the electric frypan was a great idea as there was no hotplate. Was sheltered from the howling winds. Great service.

We found a last minute online deal for one of the larger units and decided to stay at the Admiral Court. We chose wisely! The complex is quite nice and the units are mainly white. It is a bit far from the town center, on the way to the peninsula walk and we used the car to go to the...
