I was skeptical at the beginning as it will be our first time to try a B&B (we usually book hotels). I booked this B&B as a surprise weekend getaway for my hubby and was glad that I chose Bendamere. Room was modern, tidy and warm enough during winter. It was quiet and cozy during our stay, we didn't get/feel...

What a delightful B & B. Stunning view of mountains and sea, tidy well appointed room, easy walk to town and a warm and welcoming host. Julie made us feel very welcome. Great recommendation for dinner, lovely breakfast and a blueberry muffin each for the road. Very happy to recommend.

Excellent location, short stroll to restaurants, cafes or the Whale Watch Tour station. View from our room was spectacular. Julie, the host, is very friendly and helpful. The room has everything you need. Wifi worked well. Continental breakfast included a range of cereals, toast, ham & cheese croissant and fresh coffee. On our first morning Julie also offered us muffins...

Stayed here for 1 night......the best view in town, best service form a host. We were amazed at how clean and well prepared the room was..........Just a well thought out accomodation. The room only had the basics as far as bar fridge, tea and coffee makings, but made up with the seating, verandah...not to mention a superb yard area outside.........

This was a great location - a superb view of the ocean, and a very short walk down to the main street with lots of shops and restaurants. The room was cute, comfortable and clean. Hostess was very friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great.

Set high above Kaikoura this B&B has spectacular views across the bay. It is a short walk down to the amenities. The room was clean and comfortable. The hosts were away but a good breakfast was prepared by their helper

Staff are very welcoming and friendly, and helpful with local knowledge and suggestions for things to do in and around Kaikoura. The room was comfortable and the view was amazing - looking out across the lawns towards the snow capped mountains and the bay. Beautiful at anytime of the day!

We had a lovely stay at Bendamere House. The host was very helpful and friendly. Our room seemed a bit old and outdated, but it was clean and a nice size. Delicious shortbread cookies were waiting in the room for us upon arrival. The patio opened to a beautiful cliff top that overlooked the ocean. Breakfast as very good and...

Splendid view over bay and garden. Excellent service and facilities. Breakfast just good, but not at the same high standard. Laundry facilities are coin operated. Room itself is clean and well equipped
