Our hosts were very welcoming and so were their beautiful pets, Criechton the cockatoo and Mollie the cavoodle. Quiet well appointed rooms, a gorgeous lounge and lovely breakfasts. A pleasant surprise set off the street away from the bustle of Kaikoura's main street. Highly recommended

Love it here, from the moment we were met from our coach we were made to feel special. We arrived early on the bus and we dumped our stuff before going whale watching. We were even dropped down to the office by Tony who helped rearrange our whale watching time,. The B&B is lovely and had great character. We loved...

After spending a large part of my life dealing with the low life types in this world, first in the Justice Dept then the New Zealand Police, running an accommodation Lodge in Kaikoura has been a pleasure dealing with people from the other end of the spectrum.

We generally do not stay at B&Bs, but any misgivings we might have had were immediately dispelled when we arrived at the Admiral Creighton. Yvonne and Tony could not have been more wonderful and the accomodation was first class. We have no reservation in recommending the Admiral Creighton - you'll love it.

It all started on a misunderstanding due to an old Lonely Planet guide. We were supposed to stay at a Convent, but it was transformed as a University 4 years ago. Actually, the same phone number is now the one of this cute B&B owned by a very friendly couple. At the first look, you think it is a little...

We stayed 2 nights in the Admiral Creighton B&B during our roundtrip. The B&B is in een good location, just a short drive to the most restaurants. We had a nice stay, friendly hosts, nice dog and parrot and a good night sleep. The only thing is that the B&B could use a little modernisation. But maybe that`s the charm...

Stayed here on our first day of a tour and was very impressed. Tucked away out of the bustle of the lively little town of Kaikoura the Admiral Creighton B&B is a gem! With the Kaikoura mountains in the backyard and the stunning Pacific on the other side the setting couldn't be better. The décor of the B&B is 'old...
