Judy was helpful and kind. Her wholesome breakfast was quite a spread compared to many other places we stayed in. The place was near to the whale watch office and a short drive to the town's restaurant. I would highly recommend this beautiful B & B to fellow travelers .

We stayed two nights in the unit with kitchenette. Unit was clean and comfortable with heat. Breakfasts were tasty, filling and complete including homemade muffins. Host provided lots of tips for activities and meals. Easy access to town. Quiet location with benches & views of mountains along small brook.

This is a modest property with small rooms. We had a shared outside restroom that we used with other guests (but never ran into anyone luckily). This really just feels like you are staying in a small room of someone's house, which I am pretty sure is what we were actually doing. Breakfast was upstairs, continental, with owner lady and...

My husband and I stayed here for one night last week. The B&B was off the main road, but the entrance was small so first or second time might be easy to miss. There are parking after you turned in from the streets. On arrival around 3pm, we just walked in since it was unlocked. We found a board with...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I do work part time for Whale Watch Kaikoura so I am not always there to greet guests when they arrive. However there is always a muffin and tea and coffee available in the kitchen.

Judy is a lovely hostess who does her best to ensure that every guest is well-accommodated and comfortable. The place is impeccably clean. The breakfast was good, with a nice variety of fruits, yogurts, breads and jams. I would definitely stay again in the Brook House B&B.

An unusual style of B & B, but we enjoyed our stay with Judy who is a very friendly, organised and lively person. We had free range of the kitchen and fridge for tea, coffee - and her freshly baked muffins! Our room at the back of the first floor was quiet, had a fantastic view over the mountains and...
