Close to beach and food
This motel is located about a 15-minute walk from the Whaleway Station (train station/Whale Watch Kaikoura base). If you contact the owners beforehand, they might be able to give you a lift from town to the motel. If you walk, instead of walking along the road, there is a pleasant path just back from the beach that leads almost directly there, or you can walk along the beach. The motel is located about a block away from a large supermarket and only a 1-minute walk from the beach. The owners were very friendly and kept the motel area quite tidy. Each room had its own little table, chairs and umbrella outside, and the kitchen was really good. The decor is perhaps slightly dated, but everything was clean and tidy. The motel is near the train tracks, but so are many places in Kaikoura, and few trains pass by. Although it takes a few minutes to walk into town, the proximity to the beach and supermarket and the facilities themselves mean I would stay here again.
