Bendamere House is a tranquil spot to stay in Kaikoura. I stayed in an upper room that was quite large and had a lovely terrace with a few of the sea. It's not on the main drag so it's quiet but the main street is only a 10 minute walk away. The owner was very welcoming, lovely to speak with...

A very good b&b with exceptional views of the sea at Kaikoura, which is short walk downhill, and lovely garden.
