Fodor's Review

A waterfront view is hard to ignore—even more so on the rugged Kaikoura Coast—and this rather fancy apartment-style motor lodge is just across the beach, a few minutes' walk from the town center. The suites have double spa baths, as do a few of the other rooms; three units are two stories, well-suited for families or larger parties. The apartments have a good-sized kitchen area and everything for a longer stay, some with laundry.
