convenient, clean, and good value hotel
The cottage we stayed in actually had 3 beds; one queen and two singles. we were just 2 people traveling, so if you have 4 people then one cottage has great value. The wifi worked pretty well, the room size was decent, and the location was great. There was a TV and a kitchen, but we didn't really watch any TV or cook anything, so not much to say there. The lady who greeted us was really nice and helpful.

Really enjoyed our two night stay at Bay Cottages. It was located about a 5 minute drive away from Kaikoura township, on South Bay. Lovely quiet location. Our unit (2) was completely refurbished. It was open planned with a comfy supersized King bed, lounge with wide screen TV, fireplace and well appointed kitchen with microwave, cooktop and ample crockery and cutlery. Everything you need, even a front loading washing machine! Bathroom was modern and clean. Great place to get away from it all.
