Pier Hotel Accommodation, Restaurant & Bar


An historic hotel with modern amenities, The Pier Hotel was first built in circa 1885. This cozy seaside hotel still retains the appearance, charm and atmosphere of yesteryear - but houses all the mod cons of today!

The location is superb and boasts undoubtedly the best outlook in Kaikoura, with panoramic vistas of the Kaikoura Ranges and sweeping views of Ingals’ Bay from the bar, balcony and restaurant.

The recently upgraded character accommodation features new king-sized or twin beds, with shared bathrooms in keeping with the 125-year-old history of the hotel.

The Pier takes pride in serving outstanding food in the restaurant, using fresh local produce with a focus on crayfish and seafood, as well as light dishes, snacks and sweet treats for coffee stops.
