This B&B was chosen based on Trip Advisor ratings. It met all my expectations, but I think other reviewers are going a little overboard. Yes the views are magnificent and the rooms very nice. The breakfast was good, but there were no choice given. Overall, a solid very good.

Not only were the views exceptional, but the room as well! Julie took excellent care of us from walking in the door and until our departure. We loved that it was so spectacularly sited, but also just a few minute walk into town. We had fresh shortbread in our room and breakfast was provided each morning. We loved that everyone...

Occasionally you come across something really special, well in accommodation terms, this is it. From the moment you enter the driveway you know that this is something special!

WOW! The views here were among the best I have ever seen- overlooking the ocean, with the mountains in the background, and whales playing in the distance.

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...
