Peppers Bluewater Resort
A sprawling resort arrayed around rocky pools and tussocky gardens. Rooms are chic and modern – if sometimes on the small side – but last-minute online discounts make this a place worth considering.

In the southern part of town, with comfortable motel units (some recently refurbished) and with new beds. If you’re snowed in there’s a good DVD library and Freeview satellite TV.

Kaikoura Cottage Motels
