What a brilliant place to stay in Kaikoura. The room is of the highest quality with a really comfy bed and electric blankets (for the cold NZ weather!). The bathroom is very modern and clean too. My favourite bit (apart from Scooter the dog!) was the hot tub which was lovely to use (at all times of the day) in Ruth's lovely garden. The location is ideal for exploring Kaikoura. You are based on the hill above Kaikoura with wonderful views and it is only a 10 minute (max.) walk into town. Ruth was very helpful and accommodating as we changed our plans last minute. Thanks again, Ruth!

I highly recommend Ruth's place. She is one of those hosts who think of everything to make your stay as perfect as possible. Our beds were super comfortable and the room very quiet. She provided us with a variety of items for snacking and for breakfast the next morning along with hot beverages any time we wanted. You can easily walk to downtown Kaikoura from Ruth's place and she has tons of brochures of local things to do. An added benefit to your room is the view of a beautifully well tended garden. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ruth's place to anyone!
