The Pier Hotel is situated 2.5km from the town centre, offering a quiet retreat with magnificent views. The bar, with historical photographs and cosy open fire, has been patronised for over a century by the whaling and fishing fleets.


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! A thorough refurbishment complements the old with the new. The site is superb and 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 . Come and see for yourself. Dining at The Pier Hotel and Restaurant Kaikoura, a South Island coastal seaport, has long been famous for its crayfish (lobster) fishery, and naturally this delicacy features largely in the cuisine of the area. The Pier’s restaurant is rated one of the best seafood restaurants in the region.
