What travelers to Kaikoura are saying

What a lovely town. Lots of great places to eat and a stunning backdrop of snow capped mountains. We loved doing the 3 hour peninsula walk. Felt a bit sorry for the seals in the bay near the car park. Lots of tourists think that the 10 metre rule...

Captivating Kaikoura

This small coastal town of New Zealand has a number of Kaikoura Hotels to please every kind of traveller and holds a particular interest for sea lovers. With striking mountain ranges and towering cliffs going straight into the sea, rocky beaches, and steep shorelines, this remarkable town immediately grabs the explorer’s attention. Adventures and thrills combined with a laid back atmosphere to create a pleasurably balanced experience.

Whale watching, fishing excursions, and swimming with dolphins should be on the top of your to-do list when choosing accommodation in Kaikoura. Depending on the season you are planning your visit in, different species of fish and seabirds, from Albatross to Shearwater, will leave you astounded. Surfing and kayaking with seals and dolphins is currently gaining popularity in the region as well. There are plenty of tours available all year long that ensure you are kept safe while making the most of this vacation. Be sure to take one of the many Kaikoura wilderness walks, guided hikes, or South Pacific safaris and hunting tours available. They allow you to fully explore the country’s stunningly diverse wildlife up close and personal before heading back to one of the many modern Kaikoura hotels.

Book your Kaikoura accommodation through HotelClub to enjoy our exclusive offers for our members. Membership is free, so booking your perfect getaway is easier than ever. Fly into Kaikoura’s airport. Although this remains one of the country’s smaller airports, it allows for travel in smaller airplanes, giving you a somewhat personal flying experience. Most travellers opt for the train into Kaikoura, as the railway line running between Picton and Christchurch offers a beautifully scenic route worth viewing.

Lovely hotel, parking could be better use of space to back out, walls are pretty thin and we could hear the loud voices next door. Gorgeous view.

Very disappointing.
Very noisy being on state highway 1. Nor did we get the unit we paid for. Even if we had, family units are still studio units which we do not like.
