This was a one night stop on our way to Queenstown. Very basic. Receptionist was pleasant and attentive and checking in was easy. Onsite parking, sparse kitchen utilities but enough for one night. The only unpleasant bit were the dead flies everywhere.....and the bed bug in my bed. A bit tired.

We had a good rest here after driving from Hokitika. Friendly staff. The room was clean with fly spray in the room. A 5 minute walk to the local bar / restaurant which was very welcoming. The rooms weren't too hot considering there is no air conditioning.

If, like us, you're driving the West Coast road from Karamea to Haast in one day, the Aspiring Court is a welcome place to spend the night, and rest... In fact we spent 2 nights there because we wanted to explore the area and take the coast road south down to Jackson Bay, the end of the line. En route,... More

We actually ended up staying here as we'd gotten low on gas and needed to wait until the petrol station opened in the morning so we could head on over the pass.....must pay attention to the distance between stations in NZ! The entire facility was clean and quiet. We enjoyed having a true little kitchen and purchased some vegetable soup... More

Enjoyed staying here, we were a group of 3 and there were 2 bedrooms, one for single and one for double. The only drawback was that the bathroom led off the double room i stead of being separated, great beds, clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if we came back. To be honest, the Haast Pass was quite... More

We stopped here for 1 night while touring the west coast. There were only a handful of other guests on the night we were there, plus a few vans in the associated van park. We checked in at about 4.30 and the process was straight forward. A small container of milk was provided. The room was clean, a good size... More

Mixed review, property was mostly clean, but attention to a real deep clean (carpet) and windows are needed. Sleep quality was excellent, paying big bucks for wifi and slow reception was annoying. High prices comparatively for equal accommodations in nearby towns. Nothing special.

I was very impressed with the cleanliness. The staff was friendly and efficient, the room had everything we needed, the shower was great. We only stayed for one night but could easily stay for longer. I come back to the West Coast every year and always stop in Haast. What a beautiful spot for any lover of nature.

The hotel was good. It was clean. It was quiet... but that was because NO ONE was there. Easy to find... being the only hotel in the city you really can't miss it. We had to pay for WIFI but we got a discount... I mean we were the only ones there so why not, right? The hotel served its... More
