You’ll learn more about Kaikoura’s history and hidden attractions here than you will in any other style of accommodation. Hotel accommodation in Kaikoura is in a boutique style retaining the friendly personalised service which most of Kaikoura’s accommodation choices share. These hotels are small and tending towards the luxury end of accommodation in the area. As in most New Zealand towns, motel accommodation can be found in large numbers offering a value for money style which appeals to a large number of travellers.
Motel accommodation can range from room only right through to one and two bedroom units and apartments. Breakfast is usually offered at an additional price delivered to your room. Kaikoura attractions and activities are well supported by local forms of accommodation and Kaikoura tours are easy to organise. Kaikoura whale watching is the most recognised attraction in the area and whale watching charters operate all year round weather permitting. Luxury lodges and apartments command superior positions and offer panoramic views, modern decor and extra attention to detail for those wishing to pamper and spoil themselves during an indulgent holiday.
Features such as private balconies, water views, spa bathes and cottage gardens all add up to food for the soul and the spirit. Kaikoura Holiday Parks offer a few more features than your average camping ground. Heated pools and spas, waterfront locations and cabin accommodation options are just a few of the excellent facilities you will find. Kaikoura accommodation provides the perfect solution for travel between Picton and Christchurch and it is well worth stopping for a few days to enjoy all the attractions and activities this seaside gem of a town has to offer.
