A great unit. Spacious, spotless and comfortable. In a good location for those arriving from the north. A wonderful host who went out of her way to arrange the meal at a restaurant that we wanted.Good heating and great electric blankets. We would happily stay there again.

Very friendly welcome from the manager, handy location for local supermarket. Comfortable studio unit with everything we needed for our short stay. Manager gave us good advice for local activities. We did the peninsular walk visitng Fyffe house on the way which is well worth a stop.

We stayed in a two bedroom room recently and will never stay again. The beds were terrible, super thin walls and a floor that feels like it will collapse when anyone walks. There was a good little kitchenette which was really handy and the shower pressure was good. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were very tidy. However,... More

Clean rooms, great location with nice view of the mountains, friendly and helpful staff. Very accommodating. Got my check-out date mixed up and they made no big fuss, which I was glad about since I was way past check-out time. Will definitely recommend when possible.

lovely, comfy room and very friendly and welcoming hosts who not only looked after us, but also were happy to accommodate and keep an eye on the security of our trailer. Comfy and stylish room. Would definitely stay again.

Lovely staff, room tidy and comfortable but a bit of dust around and a few insects both live and dead. Slightly cold and definitely needed to find the heater to warm up the room. Otherwise pleasant and enjoyable. Good value for price.

We were received by a Chinese staff, it's very nice to see a compatriot in NZ. She's very kind and offered many important info for us, we are very appreciated for this!The motel is almost 2 KM away from Kaikoura town centre, very convenient!

The motel was comfortable with good beds and plenty of room in the living area, although the kitchen area was a bit small. There was a new modern shower but the other parts of the room and the motel in general were a little tired and needing an upgrade. Nevertheless less the stay was most acceptable and the staff were...

Check in quick & easy, room was clean & tidy. A bit of road noise but not too much of a concern. Kitchen is dated but we didn't use it. Lovely shower. Parking outside motel room. Would stay again & recommend to others.

Actually I didn't stay at the motel, as my friend and I booked a room with two beds, when we arrive there we found there is only a sofa bed and single bed. The sofa was still a sofa! When they opened it, it is quite short. It is fine if they can serve politely and explained it nicely. The... More

Ivan K, Manager at Heritage Court Motor Lodge, responded to this review

There is actually a Queen bed and a sofa bed. As you are not a tall girl that sofa bed definitely is big enough for you. We had explained to you patiently for at least half an hour and you keep insisting that you wanted 2 separate beds in a studio. We have no choice but to suggest cancel the... More
