South Island Lodging Advice

Jump to last reply

I am looking for advice on places to stay on the South Island.

First, we need one night in Kaikoura. We will not have a car, so I wanted something walkable. I have narrowed it down to two choices - Anchor Inn Motel (gets good reviews, but further out?) and the White Morph Moter Inn apts (they have a more expensive option that includes a spa tub, which would be great.)

Second, I am looking for a place to stay in Christchurch at the beginning and end of the trip. Again, no car at this point, so downtown is best. I don't think we'll be in the place much, so I'm less picky about this, but for some reason I've been underwhelmed by my choices. Moderately priced spots include the Latimer Hotel, or Rydges. Forgot to mention, I want an ensuite bathroom too. Price somewhere from $125-$200 nz dollars would be good. Any ideas?

Third, Te Anau. I like two choices so far - Keiko's B&B or The Croft B&B. Any feedback on those or other spots?

And last, Wanaka (or environs). The Mountain Range Lodge looks lovely, or possibly the Homestead Lodge. I am willing to pay a bit more here as it's the end of our trip and our anniversary. A bathtub and/or fireplace would be great. Any ideas for other spots or advice on the above would be excellent.

We will have a car in the Te Anau/Wanaka areas.

Thanks as always.
