Clean, comfortable and with screens on the windows to keep out insect life! Friendly reception. Wifi available at a cost of $5.00 per hour. Very quiet location away from main road. A good place to stay.

Well kept and maintained motel staff were only to obliging to help where ever they could. The little road house was friendly and clean. A nice quite little place to stay. The surrounds well kept and lovely.

We had one night in a studio room. Friendly service on arrival and throughout our stay. Lovely big unit, decor isn't modern, but unit very clean and comfortable, had a great sleep. Weather was terrible, so happy to stay in our unit! Had a lovely large meal at the local, 'Hard Antler'.

We arrived at 8.30 pm and would have appreciated better signage on the highway. But room was great and staff friendly. Were directed to the Hard Antler for a late but delicious dinner! Facilities in room good and clean.

I always believe that the journey should very much be an enjoyable part of any trip. On this occasion we were travelling from Hokitata to Wanaka via Haast and had booked The Aspiring Court motel as a place to stop and look around the region. The town was much smaller than I expected and equally so the choice in accommodation.... More

An overnight stop on the way to the glaciers. I booked in advance but needn't have bothered as it had vacancies. The motel was very cut and paste with little in the way of distinguishing features. The beds were fairly comfortable and the pillows were clean. A decent kitchen range, more than adequate furniture. My only complaint was that the... More

Room was adequate for an overnight stay but I would suggest getting to the pass before 6pm or... More

My wife & I are on our sixth visit to New Zealand so we have stayed in many motels but this certainly is not on our list of ones to re-visit. When we arrived the receptionist seemed determined to give as little information as possible, no offer of a tourist map, no recommendations for local restaurants, just "here is the... More

Despite arriving a day before our booking we were found a nivce two bedroom unit at the back of the establishment. The rooms were large with well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. WIFI is reasonable speed at $5 per hour.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit. This was ok for an overnight stay. The whole unit was very tight for four people. The most amazing feature of the unit was that it had the smallest shower we have ever seen. The kitchen had the cheapest crockery possible. In the end you get what you pay for and the price... More
