Garden setting with a view.
Very nice place to stay. The yard and flowers were terrific. Nice setup for a comfortable stay. Had to drive down to town because it was on top of the ridge. It made for beautiful views of mountains.

Get there while you can!
Stunning views all round from this beautifully kept and spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished property. Its owners Lynne and John are keen for their guests to make the most of their time in Kaikoura. When they met us at the station they took us on a tour of the local area giving us lots of information on what we could see and do in the six days we were there. On our last day they drove us out to a seal colony which we would not have seen otherwise. Lynne and John like to get to know their guests over breakfast and their visitors book is full of compliments. Get there while you can though because they are off on their travels soon.

Excellent place to stay if you get the chance.
They weren’t supposed to be open but hotels.com showed them to be, we booked and I caught them as soon as they got home (very lucky) they didn’t have to but they put us up for the night. Very nice people, very nice house and excellent service (when they didn’t have to) thank you Austin Heights.

My stay at Austin Heights B&B was a lovely one. The owner met me in town to shuttle me from the train to the property. While my room was getting ready, I was still able to change up for an activity that afternoon and sit on the terrace, enjoying the gorgeous view of the mountains that surround Kaikoura. He arranged dinner for me at the Pier Hotel (a must) along with a pick-up from the property. It is a walk down the hill into town, so it's a great spot if you have a car or way to get back and forth quickly. The view, the friendly owners, and the big, comfortable room make the trek worth it. Since it's up on the bluff already, it's a short amble up to the lookout for a gorgeous (indescribably gorgeous) sunset. Breakfast was hearty and filling and shared with other guests, so it was wonderful to meet people from all over. Highly recommend a stay here if you love scenery, quiet surroundings, and wonderful hospitality!

Really nice BnB
Stayed here to see the Sperm Whale and was not disappointed. Great trip with Whalewatch and really worthwhile experience. The Kaikōura museum in the Council offices is also worth a visit especially the display devoted to the recent earthquake.
