couldn’t sleep and got woken in the morning by the people in the room upstairs!! You can hear every footstep, door opening and shutting it’s not good. I recommend requesting a upstairs room or a room with no upstairs!!
This was one of the nicest places we have stayed at.Everything was spotless, warm and the views of the snow capped mountains with the sunrise from the balcony was spectacular. Would thoroughly recommend this.
Large size, pleasant and helpful staff. Good access to all rooms. Clean neat and tidy. Great view.
For those that want to be within easy walk of the action, this is a bit out for that. But still an easy drive.
This was a motel with self contained apartments with cooking facilities but no washing machine. Very comfortable overlooking the bay with a veranda. Large lounge and charming hostess. Very near Pier Hotel where you can eat crayfish and about 2-3 miles from the seal colony....More
Our room was upstairs with a small balcony enjoying views over the ocean and the mountains. Accomodation was a little dated but clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and overall we had a very pleasant stay at the Panorama Motel.

The Whale watch office is at the Kaikoura Railway Stn approx. 2.8km to the north of the Panorama Motel. Think you have to check into the Whale Watch office before your tour starts and they run a transfer bus from there to the South Bay jetty where the boats leave from. South Bay is approx. 4.5km to the south (over the hill) from the Panorama Motel. Whale watch is fantastic but just as amazing is the swimming with the Dolphins!
