We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights this month with a group of family members. The apartments were beautiful, with breathtaking views of the snow capped mountain range! Our 2 bedroom apt was nice and spacious and had everything we needed to kick back and relax. You can either self cater or you do have the option...

This was our first stop on a week long tour of the SI. We were greeted warmly by our hosts Ross and Jenny, and shown to our two bed apartment which was amazing. The apartment was very spacious and clean. It had everything we needed and more, the spa bath and gas fire was the icing on the cake. We...

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was absolutely lovely. The gas fireplace in the lounge room was perfect, as were all the facilities within the unit. The accommodation is located more than walking distance out of town, so unfortunately we couldn't drive in for dinner after relaxing with a few wines in font on the fire on a...

We stayed here for two nights on the first stop of our tour of the South Island. Upon arrival we were amazed at how much better the apartment looked than the pictures online. It was sparkling clean and spacious, as well as tastefully decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you want to self cater. Even a washing machine...

We stayed at this place with our young family. We found the accomodation spacious and with everything we needed. We visited in the winter so the big gas fire was both useful and adding to the experience. Great home made breakfast served hot in the morning, a great way to start the day. The hosts were always friendly and happy...

The Fairways appears to be part of a luxury housing development. The hotel is set in spacious grounds that go up into an elevated site with, after a few minutes walk, views of the bay and snow capped hills. It is a very pleasant location about 3 minutes from town. You would probably not stay here if you did not...

This is an awesome place to stay. My kids and I booked into the 1 BR apt and it is top notch and worth every penny! We wished we have more time and did not want to leave. Close to Whale Watch Kaikoura. Have a gas fireplace, jet tub, washer and dryer, and lots more. Loved it!!! No complaints.
