Admiral Court Motel, Kaikoura
Lots of space in gorgeous Kaikoura
Well equipped for a hotel room with kitchenette, 2 BRs, 1 BA, big dining room table, sitting area, and some extra single beds. Great if you have a vehicle, but a bit far from town if you don't have one--it's either a long walk or else you're dependent on the Kaikoura Shuttle ($15 for 1 person or $8/person for groups). There's an excellent restaurant across the street, but it's popular and didn't have space the night we arrived. Views are wonderful, and interesting to see impacts of 2016 earthquake. Town is nice, but give yourself flexibility on whale watching and other activities as tours are cancelled if the seas are too rough.

Best Location for Restful Stay
The motel is located at southern end of the main tourist strip, near the favourite pub in town but one street back so it avoids the late night tourist meanderers and the early morning coach loads. Quiet, peaceful, a good night's sleep. Rooms are newly fitted and very comfortable. Ours was spacious, airy, comfortable, very clean. Beds great, bathroom and kitchenette both big and properly appointed. WiFi good, parking easy and off street. We were able to walk the Kaikoura headland track from our motel. The fabulous hotel for dinner is only minute's walk.

Great place to stay, very clean and tidy and local
Lovely place to spend 4 nights. Spacious and had everything we needed. Owners were lovely and very accommodating. The BBQ was very well equipped and clean and the room had everything that was needed. Only improvement would be a few more places to hang towels in the (brand new and very nice) bathroom. Being below the owners meant there were quite a few loud thumps and bangs from their young visitors until quite late but this was during the school holidays and not a biggie.
