Property Information:

Welcome to Kaikoura!

All rooms have en-suites and heating systems. Warm, clean, well equipped, the Lazy Shag is set among magnificent trees with superb mountain views and gardens that stretch down to the river.

For some real entertainment try seal swims or snorkelling trips!

There is plenty of car parking space, and all activities are within a 5 minutes walk from town centre!

We have a really warm common room (log fire never goes out!). A beautiful view, and a comfortable clean and homely stay.

    Huge rambling place makes it difficult to find some things like the laundry to the newly arrived. Wall to wall people everywhere. Very friendly all partying and cooking food together. 1 internet computer. Very busy staff. They never had a chance to sit down, we had a private room in a wing that was locked 10 mins early which was annoying, doubly so when the door wouldn't then unlock. Room nice, TV, DVD , small separate bathroom. Lots of parking and access from several streets.
