Julie was an excellent hostess. She greeted us warmly and showed us around. The view from our room was beautiful. She gave us such good advice about who to fish with and where to eat. And, when we left each day she gave us some home baked goodies to take with us. We just hope that Bendamere will be back...

We spent two days here with the fantastic view over the bay from our lovely room. Our host Julie warmly welcomed us and gave us plenty of useful info at our arrival. The breakfast was generous and delicious, and Julie prepared for us even we need to go whale watching at 7:15 (normally breakfast is available during 7:30 to 10:00)....

We stayed two nights and enjoyed Julie's wonderful hospitality. She is a consummate professional with years of experience. The room was perfect, although we could have used some drawer space and more coat hangers. The bed was very comfortable and the view was exceptional. Julie arranged our whale watching trip and restaurant bookings for us. Cellar View was the best...

The views from our room were fantastic, the surroundings were quiet as it is on the top of the cliff. The room was a bit of a squash with 2 large teenage boys, but it was warm, we were there in August so it was windy. Getting to the B&B without a car is a bit of a walk all...

Spectacular view of the mountains and the sea. We stayed in August and to see the sunset behind the snowcapped ranges was beyond beautiful. Warm, well appointed rooms, with heat pumps for winter and balcony for summer. Unexpected treats too like homemade shortbread and pineapple muffins. If we go back to Kaikoura we'd definitely stay here!

We had a wonderful overnight (only wish it could have been longer) at this idyllic Bed and Breakfast. It was a cold night as the Surrounding Ranges had a good covering of snow. You could feel the cold as you got out of the car. However the room was warm and cosy. I grabbed an extra blanket being such a...

I was skeptical at the beginning as it will be our first time to try a B&B (we usually book hotels). I booked this B&B as a surprise weekend getaway for my hubby and was glad that I chose Bendamere. Room was modern, tidy and warm enough during winter. It was quiet and cozy during our stay, we didn't get/feel...

What a delightful B & B. Stunning view of mountains and sea, tidy well appointed room, easy walk to town and a warm and welcoming host. Julie made us feel very welcome. Great recommendation for dinner, lovely breakfast and a blueberry muffin each for the road. Very happy to recommend.

Excellent location, short stroll to restaurants, cafes or the Whale Watch Tour station. View from our room was spectacular. Julie, the host, is very friendly and helpful. The room has everything you need. Wifi worked well. Continental breakfast included a range of cereals, toast, ham & cheese croissant and fresh coffee. On our first morning Julie also offered us muffins...
