Directions to The Pier Hotel Kaikoura
Charming, period hotel & pub on the edge of Kaikoura, metres from the ocean. Traditional rooms with a modern touch, shared bathroom facilities, communal wrap around sun balcony. A touch of yesteryear.
Staying at The Pier Hotel Kaikoura is like stepping back in time, and it's easy to imagine travellers stopping off here on their way from Christchurch to Blenheim. This delightful Victorian building offers traditional accommodation in updated rooms, although all rooms do have shared bathroom facilities, so it really is authentic Victorian hospitality!
Downstairs, there's a great bar and restaurant, with a real homely atmosphere, and a friendly bunch of locals who'll be happy to tell you stories over a few late night whiskies.
Kaikoura itself is a pleasant 2km stroll along the waterfront, perfect for a summer's evening, though you'll want to be back 'home' in plenty of time to catch the sunset from the balcony upstairs. Interestingly, this hotel was rebuilt timber by timber when moved from its original location 10 years ago, but the Victorian magic remains.
