The motel consisted of two sections. As the newer one was fully booked, we were forced to accept the older one. Although very clean, this unit had had very limited modification or alterations over the last 20 years or so. The decor reminded one of...More
Only stayed a night but although the motel is older, Lockwood style construction, it was very clean and tidy in a great location over looking the bay and mountains and catches the sun to very late. Stayed in October so sun wasn't to hot so...More
The motel has good views across the bay and receives good afternoon sun. It's a short stroll from the excellent Pier Hotel. It does everything adequately. There is a reasonable amount of road noise, though that didn't disturb our sleep.

The Whale watch office is at the Kaikoura Railway Stn approx. 2.8km to the north of the Panorama Motel. Think you have to check into the Whale Watch office before your tour starts and they run a transfer bus from there to the South Bay jetty where the boats leave from. South Bay is approx. 4.5km to the south (over the hill) from the Panorama Motel. Whale watch is fantastic but just as amazing is the swimming with the Dolphins!
