We stayed for a night while travelling around south Island The room was good. Nice and big with view on the garden and to the ocean and the mountains in the background. Breakfast was very good. They gave us good suggestion to trip and restaurant.

The views from the property and rooms are amazing! Plus... Very nice breakfast with hot ham and cheese croissant plus toast, fruit, cereal, yogurt, and jams. We even had homemade shortbread in our room too! Plus... We were given homemade scones to take on the road with us. The house is just above the town and has a nice walking...

A very good b&b with exceptional views of the sea at Kaikoura, which is short walk downhill, and lovely garden. We watched the weather change/close in - from hot & sunny to overcast & rain within less than 20 minutes from the safety of our room! The friendly hostess served a good breakfast, to all who stayed, around a large...

The hosts are very friendly and the views across the sea are breathtaking. It also offers a view of the snow mountains. It is also very convenient with the town centre being only a 5 to 10 minute walk. There is also a complimentary pick up or drop off service to bus stops and others. It also has the most...

This was our second visit to this family run B&B. The rooms are very well appointed and separate to the main house. Unbeatable views of the kaikoura coast. Large garden to relax in. Julie provides a great breakfast in the dining room of her house and will help out with confirming any local arrangements. It has to have the freshest...

Sadly, we could only stay one night Julie's lovely Bendamere House. We were booked on a whale-watching trip and then were flying out to Sydney. After a most comfortable night's sleep, Julie gave us a delicious early breakfast watching the sun rise over the horizon. Gorgeous. The views from our room and from the breakfast room are to die for....

The view is amazing , breathtaking. This B n B is slightly out of Kiakura but that is a benefit. Accommodation is clean and tidy but quite dated and needing a bit of decorating. Breakfast was very sociable , sitting together with other guests in the main house. Good to discuss the day ahead. Anne was very kind and helpful...

Bendamere and Julie both lived up to their lofty TripAdvisor ratings. Our room was on the second level and had an outstanding view of the gorgeous back yard and Pacific. The room was large, clean, and well appointed. Julie was an excellent host. Breakfast was on time and delicious. Be sure to say hello to Diesel (the cat) while you/re...

Bendamere House stands on the hill just above the town of Kaikoura. Shops and restaurants are just a short walk or drive down the hill into the town. We stayed just one night in the Hartnell Room, a first floor room with patio window and terrace looking out over the extensive grounds and with uninterrupted views of the Pacific. The...

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at Bendamere for one night on our trip up the coast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The view from the house is breathtaking since it is situated on a hill overlooking the coast with a large grassy yard. It is, also, an easy walk down hill to restaurants and shops. At...
