Wife & I did a drive Tour around New Zealand's South Island and the first stop was Kaikoura. We chose this place because of it's position with sea and mountain views & weren't disappointed. The staff were excellent, the room excellent and the town was stunning. Great little shopping street, great eating spots and lots to do i.e. tours for...

The hotel is also located next to a cafe that offers good breakfast fare. Ask for rooms on the 2nd floor as it offers a good sea view. The hotel is located near cafes and restaurants which is within 10mins walk.

Fabulous central location. Owner extremely accommodating he shifted us downstairs on account of easier access for my elderly Mother despite me having requested 2 rooms unaware they were upstairs...my bad. Very grateful for that.... Facility extremely clean...right across road from seafront...views amazing. Most comfortable bed and best shower of our entire 2 week trip...Will return :-)

We only had one night at The White Morph but we found the 2 bedroom apartment excellent for our needs.
