Excellent all round. Sadly just stayed the one night as we were touring. Room was modern and stylish with everything you could need. Have a wonder round the garden, sure it's where the fresh flowers around the place came from 😀.

Reading earlier reviews led us to choose this property for our stay, and we are so glad we can confirm their glowing reports. This small hotel is simply excellent in every way, thanks to the proprietors. Patrick made us feel warmly welcomed the moment we arrived, assisting with baggage and carefully orienting us to our lovely, large room with its ocean view and outside entrance. And, Marie joined him the next morning to provide a delicious, individualized full breakfast with a very personal touch. Together they are charming, efficient hosts who assure your guest room is very well-equipped, clean, up to date technologically, and everything else you want, plus the back garden in bloom and beautiful. We wish we'd had another night to enjoy their warm hospitality and commend this hotel to you with no reservations. It exceeds expectations.

We stayed two nights at The Hamptons, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The room was spacious, with a comfortable bed, a small kitchen area and a very nice bathroom. There is also a decking area with chairs just outside. The sea front is just over the road and the view out over the sea and the mountains is wonderful. Parking is easy, either in the driveway or right outside on the road. The main part of the town with cafés and restaurants is a 10 minute walk. Patrick and Mary were excellent hosts. Friendly, helpful and with a good sense of humour. They also provided a vey nice breakfast. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Patrick was warm and welcoming on our arrival for our 2 night stay. Helping us with the bags he showed us to our ground floor room (1 of 2 on site) which had all the facilities needed. The room and ensuite were very clean and immaculately presented. Comfortable warm bed, excellent heating for those cold mornings. Wonderful views of the sea from our room. The Hamptons is located just across the road from the foreshore and close to the town centre. We liked the separate entrance directly from outside, particularly good as we were out visiting relatives till late at night. Great breakfast upstairs with fantastic views across the road to the sea and north to the Kaikoura ranges. Thanks Patrick and Marie-Clare for your hospitality and lively discussions over breakfast.
