Reviewed 15 October 2017

Only stayed a night but although the motel is older, Lockwood style construction, it was very clean and tidy in a great location over looking the bay and mountains and catches the sun to very late. Stayed in October so sun wasn't to hot so not sure how warm the rooms may get in Summer as no air conditioning.
You can here some noise from rooms below but didn't affect my sleep.

Room Tip: Seemed like all rooms had good views but the top floors ones would have been better.

The motel has good views across the bay and receives good afternoon sun. It's a short stroll from the excellent Pier Hotel. It does everything adequately. There is a reasonable amount of road noise, though that didn't disturb our sleep.

Travelled to Kaikoura for a weekend staying at Panorama Motel. Beautiful outlook across the bay over to the snowy mountains, very peaceful. The facilities in the room were very adequate and clean. Bed comfortable. Pier Hotel 200 metres down the road, and an approx 2k walk around to the seals. Would choose this motel again if every staying in Kaikoura. Kaikoura was very quiet due to the road closures etc, but our trip from Christchurch was hassle free with only a short delay of maybe 15 minutes. Was great to support Kaikoura shops, motel and restaurants. Keep on keeping on Kaikoura.

First, Jan was a great host. With the closing of the roads she sent me detailed directions on how to get there. And wow! Kaikoura is amazing...and the Panaroma offers the best view in town. Overlooking the harbor with the mountains in the background...was amazing. especially in the morning, watching all light up. The room was nice (#204) on the second floor. Large, comfortable and clean. the motel is walking distance to the Pier Hotel where you can get great food, a pint and a great view. Was going to stay for 2 nights...stayed for 3. As I was driving Kaikoura and looking at the location of all the other spots...this one is best...
