The booking process was easy using their website, we requested a quiet room based on advice on tripadvisor of road noise and trains. We arrived in Kaikoura around lunchtime and thought we would see if the room was ready early - it was and they were polite too given we had turned up with no warning! The man (I assume... More

Reading all these great reviews I have had to question my own experience to see whether I was being unfair or had just been unlucky. I think it's the latter. We arrived in Kaikoura in lovely sunshine after a fabulous drive from Hanmer Springs. As we walked into the i-Site it started to rain and it go heavier as the... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment. It is regrettable that your experience was not entirely positive. January is one of the busiest times of the year and we do not always have the flexibility to offer a variety of rooms. More

This place was incredible. The place was magnificent, great rooms, nicely decorated and a view of the mountains from our. Dinner table. I'll admit the shower was a trifle complex, too many buttons for my taste, but I'm a ludite. The only real problem was that my daughter didn't want to leave this place, and we had to move on....

Rooms: 4/5 Location: 5/5 walking distance to nearby supermarkets. Quiet and peaceful. Town Center and restaurants are a good morning walk away. Hosts: 5/5 They give honest information and really try to help you out. View: 2/5 view is not the reason you stay here. Nothing exceptional about it. Value for money: Great!

My partner and I have stayed at the Aspen Court numerous times. Every time we arrive the owner is very welcoming, takes time to chat with us and provides information on nearby restaurants. Our room was clean and tidy to a high standard, and as a bonus we had a view of the Kaikoura mountains. Bathroom was good, enjoyed the... More

Found our room to be perfectly clean and comfortable. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Some restaurants and takeaway food available nearby. Handy to have a supermarket close by. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in the apartment, and were very happy. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, warm and nicely decorated. Bathroom good and good quality linens and towels. Friendly and good advice at front desk. Wi-fi a bit unstable, and limited to two devices.  The motel is a bit outside town. We had a car so it was no... More

I know I have reviewed the Aspen Court Motel before but that was a couple of years ago. The very high standard of ‘motelship’ is still there. The rooms are excellent with large comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and very quiet. We stayed twice (2 x 1 night) in a couple of weeks as we wanted to go whale-watching with family... More

We really liked this motel. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. The complex is modern, well designed and very clean and tidy. The rooms are generous and the king size bed in our room was luxurious. Valuewise it compared very well with other options in Kaikoura which were smaller, older and/or more expensive by comparison.
