    Kaikoura was the first stop on our recent honeymoon in New Zealand and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Beautiful rooms with stunning rooms, great hospitality (Quentin & Jane (and Jack!) were so welcoming, going out of their way to help us...More

    Impressive seaview, tidy room, very good breakfast, very friendly and easy-going hosts - including Jack the Border terrier. Good location to reach the restaurants and whale watching. Absolutely nothing to complain about!

    Complimentary wine or beer, good Wi-Fi, bath-robes, a comfortable bed, excellent breakfasts and friendly and informative hosts. What more could one ask for? We would recommend Nikau Lodge without hesitation.

    Great cosy place with excellent hosts who are extremely knowledgable on the area. Views are spectacular! Breakfasts are huge so wake up with an appetite. You easily park the car at the lodge and walk into town for dinner.
