The rating of two is too high....
Although the lady running it was very kind and helpful the Motel has been sadly neglected. From the car she picked us up in (which was dirty inside and out and was full of tools and just junk) to the state of the sheds where the cars are parked to the rooms and the gardens - they all were dirty and uncared for. The room we stayed in had dirty mats covering parts of the carpet but the rest of the carpet had stains all over it anyway. The curtains and bed coverings looked fairly new but apart from them the motel needs a huge overhaul. I would never stay there again nor recommend it to anyone else. The location is a good 15 minute drive out of Kaikoura or an hours walk there and back.

Beachcomber Motel, Feb 2015
For your reputation, it would be best if Hotels.com removed this motel from their list of available locations. Reading some of the reviews made me think twice about booking it and even though it was the only one available (and I now know why) I still regret having booked it. It must be over 20 years since it was refurbished, if it was ever refurbished. I won't go into the details about what was wrong with this motel but I would say to anyone reading this review to think twice and if nothing else is available, well, you have been warned. Try the next town or spend a bit extra and book into a hotel. P.S. I also noticed that the motel is for sale.

Adequate
Bedding clean, but whole place is very dated and scruffy. Looks like it has been run down ready for a new owner to gut and refurbish. Lady on reception friendly and helpful.

disappointed
We were 4 of us and a baby. The room is very out of date and cold. Shower was impossible to have a nice and hot one. Need to turn on and off quite few times. Toilet was dirty some towels as well. The bed that i slept seemed not have changed linen. The manager was nice and i could not complain because we arrived very late, and next day was too late for it. Dishes, cutlery and kettle need to be upgraded.
