Nice hotel with a great restaurant
Good room with a modern en suite. This is a well converted older hotel with charm and good facilities. The breakfast room is small with simple but adequate cereals and there is a balcony where you can sit, look out over the bay and watch the world go by. The dining room is the crown however, with excellent food and this means you don't have to go into town for dinner. It is necessary to book as it is very popular, but despite it being full when we arrived, the receptionist said she "will make sure we can eat there." Kaikoura town is a reasonably long but very enjoyable walk along the sea front, but only a short car ride and there are interesting walks around the point.

Highly recommended
The Pier Hotel does not proclaim to be a 5 star hotel. However, it offers inexpensive, friendly and very good value for money. I would definitely stay again. The breakfast was a nice addition. Beds were comfortable, the place was clean, a lovely old building.
