About Kaikoura

Stay and Explore all that Kaikoura has to offer.  Whale and Dolpin watching is very popular, but there are plenty of additional activities to do when the weather is not ideal to go out on the water.  Play a round of golf, explore Kaikoura and the surrounding areas by foot or mountain bike or chill in one of the many cafes around the township.

Kaikoura is approximately 2hrs south of Picton and 2hrs north of Christchurch. Located on Beach Road, 1 km north of the township, adjacent to the New World Shopping Centre and Kaikoura's new shopping complex. An easy walk through to the cafe scene and novelty shops, we are central to Kaikoura's many attractions.

Look for the World famous Lobster on the building.
