My son and I stayed here one night, we had a wonderful stay. The rooms are large and well appointed. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. We were able to do laundry and just get some rest while leaving the doors and windows open to the sound of the ocean. I could easily see staying there... More

This is my second stay at Aspen Court Kaikoura. I have traveled with business for over 30 years and get pretty picky about where I stay. This motel is great, it is not your usual cookie cutter set up. The hosts are excellent. It is a great stop heading either way on the east coast of the South island. Highly... More

We made the last minute decision to stay in Kaikoura and are SO glad we did! This place was great - the people were so helpful over the phone and in person. The room was clean, with a beautiful view and great tea!

We really liked this place. My husband and I and our 2 kids (4 and 8 years) stayed there. We had a room with a king size bed and a single. The room was lovely and clean, the heater was awesome. The under floor heating in the bath was great. The hotel is located close to the supermarket. The free... More

Found this motel on trip advisor. W had a studio room for a family of three. The room was well appointed and offered the best shower room of all the motels we had stayed in whilst in NZ. There are fantastic views from the room when weather is good! Although on the outskirts of Kaikoura there is a New work... More

After being in New Zealand for about a week, me and my father were getting tired of running around and sleeping at hostels. For one day we wanted to rent a motel for the comfort and relaxation. I must say,we were very impressed. The heated floors were nice, the two beds were good for both of us to each of... More

Very relaxing place to stay if you are tired of campgrounds. near the beach. Heated floors in the bathroom are very nice in the winter. The only drawback is the cheap and wobbly mattresses that do not provide back support. But this is New Zealand, so what do you expect..

Recent positive reviews made me come here but the welcome was not great and the room was average. Immaculately clean but right near train tracks, really noisy at night. Freezing cold at night too. Quite expensive in comparison to other motels and a little out of the way. Really average I'm afraid.

What a beautiful part of the world! Hotel room was clean and we'll appointed! Check in was easy and reception was very helpful. We were given room 19 - around the back with an extraordinary view of the mountains. Don't forget to drive north for 20 minutes and see the baby seals at the Ohau waterfall - awesome!
