My wife and I stayed here for two nights. Only downstairs rooms were available due to safety inspection restrictions. Upstairs should be available anytime now. A clean and comfortable room with a fantastic view from the patio. Easy access and a short walk to best restaurant in town. You can pick the tide level by the aroma, but the price you pay for being just across the road.

Room Tip: I think every room offers exceptional view across the bay.

This motel is located adjacent to the beach with great views of both the sea and the Kaikoura Ranges. The service is very friendly and the room was nicely appointed. This is the second time we have stayed there - the first time in an upper-level room - this time in a ground-level room (which was a bit cheaper). From the motel there are a couple of dining facilities about 2-3 minute walk towards the wharf. The motel is located about a 2 minute drive from the central shopping centre.

Room Tip: We selected a ground-level room which gave us easier access to the beach

This is our third stay at the Panorama. Our first one was in the early 1990's and it felt like nothing had changed. The room was clean and quiet. The management was friendly and helpful. But the room felt tired and like it needed updated. Just updating the bedspreads would make a huge difference in the eye appeal of the units.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. The ones on the end have one less neighbor.

even though we stayed on the ground floor due to the earthquake, it was awesome. The rooms were clean and tidy and a big 10/10 for the showers. The spirit of the people of Kaikoura wasn't damped by the earthquake, in fact it heightened their love for their beautiful town. Well done! We will be back next year

Decided to spend New Year's eve in Kaikoura and had always wanted to stay here. My friend and I chose the "easy access room" that has a larger bathroom and heaps of space in the shower. It was a downstairs unit (105) which afforded the best view. Room has had a recent upgrade and we had no problems moving the furniture around to how we wanted! Mainly drinking wine and enjoying the scenery. Pam was the perfect host offering early check-in and late check-out where other bookings did not interfere.

Television had USB input so those with music / movies on a hard drive can happily avoid usual programming.

Very close to the Pier hotel which was perfect for us. Just a few minutes walk up the road. Great place for food and drinks with million dollar views. Those who travel in winter time will have magnificent views of the snow capped mountains. Would like to have stayed longer but on a schedule. Definitely stay again. Thanks Pam!!

Room Tip: Easy access studio room a nice downstairs unit. More space with good views.
